Garage Door Rollers Repair,
Each roller has a wheel with a metal rod that gets attached to the door frame. These rollers must be in-line with the tracks completely, otherwise the door won’t move smoothly and every movement will make a lot of noise. Not only is this bad for the rollers, but it’s also bad for all components in the mechanism.
They are essential for the smooth operation of the door. When the garage door seizes to open and close smoothly, you may need new garage door rollers. In some cases, you can fix the problem by lubricating the tracks and rollers but if that doesn’t work, new rollers might be the only answer.
Garage Door Roller IssuesThere can be many issues associated to your garage door rollers. For example, you may notice that the tracks themselves are dented or loose. In those cases, the rollers could fall off the tracks or get stuck within the tracks in the damaged area. Usually, the best way to fix the problem is either by repairing the damaged tracks or replacing the broken rollers.
The Type of Garage Door Rollers We Work With
Garage door rollers can vary based on the type of material that is used and overall construction of the wheels.
Rollers that have plastic wheels are the most affordable. However, they probably aren’t going to last very long when compared to the other materials used. Plus, plastic can only support so much weight. This means you should only use them in residential homes with single-panel doors. Therefore, they are quite limited.
Overall, the best garage door rollers are the ones made of nylon, not only because of the material they’re made of but because they include metal ball-bearings and possess a lubrication groove that can disperse lubrication for a long period of time. This makes for a noiseless experience.
