  • DIY gurus: Garage door not closing as tiles too high

    So I want to chamfer the edges of a tile or two, hopefully negating the need to lift the tiles up or break them.

    My problem is a garage door that wont shut properly, I Have a tile cutter circular saw type thing, can you use these things free-style?

    The interior of the garage has a tiled floor which is slightly too high, just in one spot that I can tell, preventing the door from closing and locking properly.

    Thanks

    Hhh

    There’s probably enough adjustment in the door itself or its mounts to fix this.

    I can only imagine going freestyle with a tile saw ending in tears or A&E, or both.

    I’d start with the door. If there isn’t enough adjustment then a diamond disk in the angle grinder.

    I cant see how to adjust it, its a basic mechanical garage door that locks on both sides

    Cut the tiles away to the shut line, also serves as a water run off.

    Just adjust the door with a hammer.
