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?
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:
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.
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.
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.
Need your sliding screen repaired or replaced?
A sliding screen door doesn’t slide. Instead, they roll on wheels. When the wheels wear or break, the door drags instead of rolling. Screen doors also tend to fall out. At Alex’s Sliding Glass Door Repair, we can make an adjustment to ensure that they fit properly. If the screen is torn, we can re-screen the existing door.
Sometimes, homeowners choose to replace the existing screen door altogether, with a more durable, heavy-duty one. We can also help you replace your sliding screen door!
