SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

11 1/2 TRACK

A handy person from Jacksonville, FL says:
The track I am replacing measures 11 1/2 feet but only 3 feet at one end is damaged. Could I replace just 8 feet of the track covering the damaged end and leave the other 3 1/2 feet uncovered (using the existing track)?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
It would be ideal to use one track cover but you may not be able to find a track cover that length anywhere. If you do decide to use two different track covers together, I suggest installing the 8' section where the door is mostly used and cut and install the short track section on the opposite end.
