Customer Raised Flooring In North Vancouver Home Causing Garage Door Closing Issues
You can see the flooring that has been installed after the door was installed. This caused a few issues that needed to be resolved. In this view you can see that the construction site is still in development, which will be the reason for all the debris everywhere.

The issue which caused the top section to not close properly. The top fixtures had to be lowered to allow the roller to travel in the double track properly. You can see the wall is in close proximity to the left side of the door. This close proximity can cause issues when top assemblies are also in tight quarters.
The rising of the floor has caused the top section to be extra close to the center bearing plate. This back plate that is holding the center bearing plate is too close to the top section. This closeness had to be adjusted before the door would raise.
The top section that became too close to the left drum. This drum stopped the door in it’s tracks. The door was not installed to compensate for the rising of the floor. A tiny adjustment was needed to allow the door to properly rise. You can see the drum is contacting the top section.
A grinding/filing of the top section was needed for the drum to properly travel past the tightness. This little groove is essential and will not let the door travel properly without it.
