Sliding Door Roller Replacement

Does your sliding door feel like it weighs a ton — and you're getting a workout every time you open it?

Like any mechanical product, patio sliding doors may malfunction over time as door hardware wears out. It’s important to address these problems early on to avoid costly repairs. Lubricating the sliding door at this time will provide a short-term solution. We use the highest quality stainless steel rollers with precision ball bearings. Precision ball bearings have greater weight capacity and extended performance. The ball bearings are sealed to prevent dust and contaminants from getting inside, ensuring the proper sliding door operation.

Why do sliding door rollers wear out?

  1. Debris found inside the housing and on the track.
  2. Lubricating door hardware with the wrong lubricant.
  3. Door alignment issue.
  4. Poor quality OEM wheels that fail shortly after installation.

SLIDING DOOR TRACK REPAIR

Are your sliding doors bouncing, Making a rattling sound, or constantly jumping off the track? Most likely you have track damage and it needs to be repaired!

Track damage is a common issue that makes your sliding door hard to operate. We inspect the rollers, the track, and make cost effective recommendations.

Track damage occurs when a home owner waits too long to replace the rollers underneath the sliding glass door (the track is the rib down at the bottom that your door rollers roll on).

Common Track Problems:

  1. When something gets dropped on the track.
  2. When the wheels underneath the door start rattling, they begin to vibrate and bounce on the track, every time the door is being used. This effect starts with a “ripple look” to the track (makes it look like a washboard). The longer this continues, the deeper ripples will get.
  3. If the wheels may cease up, the wheels will drag instead of rolling causing further damage.
  4. If the wheels rust underneath the door, and the door sits in one place for a long time, the rust from the wheels will oxidize the aluminum track (oxidation is the corrosion process that aluminum goes through vs. steel which rusts). Also causing track damage

The men were so great! They quickly lifted those heavy sliding glass doors and were honest about them needing new rollers. They wasted no time and did a wonderful job. Now they are easy to open and to lock.

New Door Locks & Handles

Are your door locks or handles damaged, worn down, or just plain ugly? 

Patio Door Handles – We offer three different color handles, made out of solid aluminum: white, chrome, black.

Handles break all the time for many reasons. The most common scenario is when rollers break down underneath the door, the door becomes hard to operate and the handle breaks due to the additional weight.

After replacing the rollers, the door rolls smoothly and a new handle is just an assistance in opening and closing of the sliding door. We come across many homes with wooden handles, but the problem with wood is that it often swells up with humidity, causing the screws to loosen up.

SECURING SLIDING Glass DOORS

Are you worried that your sliding glass doors aren't locking properly as they should?

Securing your patio sliding door is extremely important. Burglars target patio doors because they are easy to open from the outside. Don’t be a victim of a home invasion. Add another layer of security by installing a Double-Bolt lock on every patio door in the house. The lock prevents the sliding door from being lifted out of the track.

We recommend installing a Double-Bolt Lock (designed with safety and security in mind) on every sliding door in the house because the lock secures the door to the frame at two security points. This lock can be used as a primary or secondary locking system on the sliding glass doors.

Common Questions about Sliding GLass doors

My house is just a few years old, why am I having trouble with the sliding door?

There are two reasons why the sliding doors have problems.

1. On a brand new house during a construction phase there is a lot of building debris, such as: dry wall dust, gravel, dirt, etc. All of that debris winds up inside the track of the sliding door. The debris is very abrasive, as construction workers go in and out it causes damage to the rollers. The track gets cleaned prior to the new home owner taking possession of the house, but the damage is already done.

2. The stock wheels that are underneath the door are not sealed ball bearings. What that means is the wheels are made out of soft steel or plastic and get deformed.

We replace your existing rollers with stainless steel wheels with sealed precision ball bearing so they never bend or corrode.

Do you install new sliding doors?

No we don’t, our main goal is to fix your existing door and not sell you a new one. Because we can fix all sliding glass doors we can save you money. The only time we recommend the replacement is if the homeowner is concerned with aesthetics of the door or is looking to update or change the look.

I have been spraying WD 40 to make my door roll smoother?

NEVER use WD 40, it will flush out the grease out of the wheels and thus ruin them. We recommend using a clear lubricant such as LC Wax-Alumaslick.

How do you clean the track underneath sliding patio doors?

You can use any type of household cleaner to clean the track such as: Simple Green, Windex, Ajax and a paper towel. If you need a little more power to clean it out use a wire brush or a scrub brush to get in and get grease and dirt out of the track. Do not power wash the tracks, you will get the water inside the door and the roller housings, which is not good for them.

Alex the owner gave me a call when he was in route and showed up on time as promised. He went right to work and did a terrific job even vacuuming up after he drilled the holes. This has been by far one of the best customer service experiences I have had in a while.
