Why is My Garage Door Bowing in the Middle

Why is My Garage Door Bowing in the Middle?

Garage doors serve more than one purpose. It doesn’t just serve as an entry point to the space where vehicles are stored and secured. A garage door can also serve as a boost to the aesthetic quality of your home. However, that’s not going to happen if your garage door happens to be bowing, particularly in its middle section.

Once you notice that your garage door is indeed bowing in the middle, you obviously want to find the reason behind it. Because not only does it look bad, but could also cause some other problems later on and you don’t want that. 

There are several potential reasons why your garage door is bowing in the middle. One possible reason is exposure to the extreme elements. Extreme temperatures can also cause the bow, as the temperature outside is different from that inside. Another potential reason for the bowing is when there’s an automatic garage door attached to the center of the door and it causes the bowing in the middle.

It should be noted that all types of garage doors are vulnerable to bowing that’s caused by a centralized garage door opener. But when it comes to bowing that’s caused by weather-related factors and conditions, then wooden doors are the most prone.
