Garage Door Roller Replacement

garage door roller repair

Your garage door rollers are a small, unobtrusive part of the opening mechanism. Many people don’t even notice or see them unless they really examine the opener. However, they’re one of the most important parts of the opener. Without properly-functioning garage door rollers, your door simply cannot open or close properly. The rollers are the part of the opener that actually allows the door to physically open and close. They do so by gliding along a track.

If your garage door rollers are cracked or somehow faulty, this can prevent the garage door from rolling smoothly when it opens and closes. In addition, it can also put great strain on the other parts of your garage door’s opening mechanism. The opener is made up of a number of small components that all work together to let your door open and close. If one of these parts isn’t working properly, it can seriously strain and damage the other parts.

Fortunately, we can tackle any issue that you might have with your garage door rollers. We can offer both garage door roller repair and garage door roller replacement when necessary. Our team does so after thoroughly inspecting your door and its opener mechanism to see if there is anything else that needs to be fixed or addressed when we carry out our repairs.

Garage Door Roller Issues

It can be tricky to know when your garage door rollers are having issues that require you to replace your garage door rollers.

One of the most obvious signs is if the wheels are cracked, or you can see that the roller isn’t properly articulating in the groove. You might notice the roller sticking when the door opens or closes, for example. Also, you may feel like the door isn’t opening anywhere near as smoothly as it should.

If you notice that your garage door tracks have any dents or distorted, then it’s almost certain that your garage door wheels are impacted by this to some extent. This is especially true of nylon garage door rollers. Even the best garage door rollers (nylon) can be damaged when used with tracks that are broken or dented.

Another issue that dented tracks can cause is forcing the rollers out of the track altogether. This is more obvious and also potentially more serious. If you notice either of these issues, then it’s crucial that you contact us, so we can evaluate the problem and carry out any necessary repair work. Replacing garage door rollers is all in a day’s work for us.

We have a number of kinds of replacement garage door rollers, and we can repair any issue that might arise with this part of your garage door. If you notice any problems with your rollers, don’t hesitate to contact us. The sooner we fix the problem, the less likely it is that your garage door is going to develop further, more serious issues as a result.

Types of Garage Door Rollers

There are a few different kinds of garage door rollers. Each type has its properties and advantages over the other types.
 
    • Steel garage door rollers -Steel garage door rollers are probably the hardiest option you can find. Unlike plastic or nylon, steel isn’t going to shatter under the pressure that opening a garage door subjects it to. Steel comes with its disadvantages, though. Chief among them is that steel might not articulate as well in garage door tracks as it is not as smooth as nylon. You’re more likely to have issues with steel wheels coming out of their tracks than nylon.
    • Nylon garage door rollers -Nylon garage door rollers are probably the most common type, and for a good reason. They’re stronger than plastic and can withstand a lot more pressure, but they’re also smoother and perform better than steel. They tend not to last quite as long as steel rollers, though. Still, nylon rollers are generally seen as the industry standard. As such, it’s easiest to get replacement parts for nylon rollers.
    • Plastic garage door rollers – Plastic garage door rollers are relatively common, and they are the most affordable option. However, they’re often most prone to issues over the long run. Plastic is a versatile material, but it can’t always handle the strain and pressure that a garage door subjects it to.
