Garage door rollers keep the garage door aligned with the tracks and allow the door to open and close with as little friction as possible. Rollers are available in a wide range of sizes, materials, and designs, but they are primarily made out of hard plastic or steel.
Bluff Country Garage Door Service can replace the old rollers with brand new rollers to keep the door opening and closing smoothly. Contact us today to schedule a garage door inspection.
How Do You Know the Garage Door Rollers Need to Be Changed?
There are several signs your garage door rollers wearing out. Below are a few examples:
● The garage doors are out of alignment. When the wheels become worn out, they’ll stop rolling in a straight line. They can cause the door to become misaligned with the rails.
● The garage door is noisy. You may start to hear squeaks or scrapes occur as you open or close the garage door. It’s a sign that we need to replace the wheels.
● The garage door keeps jamming. If the wheels are in poor shape, they may not turn as they should. Thus, the door will be jammed and not open or close at all.
Garage Door Roller Replacement
New rollers are constructed of nylon and contain ball bearings. We can install two types of rollers: an open design or a sealed bearing design. If you choose rollers with ball bearings, they’ll need to be lubricated every three to four months. A Bluff Country residential garage door technician can lubricate the doors for you to keep them working in peak condition all year long. Your garage door will stay in good shape for many years to come.
Schedule a Garage Door Inspection
We recommend you get your garage door inspected at least once a year. When we examine the rollers, we’ll check to see that the rollers are firmly attached to the shaft and that they do not wiggle or come loose. We can also replace any worn out rollers with brand new rollers to keep the door moving up and down smoothly. We’ll see if there are any chips or cracks in the rollers and assess their overall condition.
