Garage Door Roller Issues
The rollers are located on the tracks facing each other. They roll upward when the door opens and down when it closes. They make the opening and closing of the garage door smooth and easy unless they get damaged. When the rollers are not operating correctly, the movement of the door will not work as smoothly as it should.
Furthermore, if the rollers are not on track, it will be best to stop using the garage door and wait until a professional comes to fix it. Continuous use of the door when its rollers are already off track will not only cause serious damage to the door itself or to the tracks but may even pose a bigger risk to everyone around. If that happens, you will apparently have to deal with bigger concerns and expenses. It will be best to fix the damage immediately.
There are many reasons why the rollers might get off track. One of which is the loose tracks. A loose track or a track that is detached from the floor or walls can cause misalignment of the whole structure and result in rollers getting off track. Another reason can be dented tracks which can cause the rollers to get stuck. Moreover, the rollers can break, bend, get jammed, or go missing.
The above mentioned reasons may sound simple and you may think of fixing the problem yourself. For DIY enthusiasts, before handling the repair or replacement project yourself, learn first the perks of hiring skilled technicians.
Types of garage door Rollers
There are three types of Rollers:
- Plastic Rollers are the most affordable but they last the least amount of time.
- Steel Rollers operate better than the plastic ones. Their performance is smoother and quieter. However, if they move against a steel track, they will still cause some noise.
- Nylon Rollers will exceed the operation of the steel rollers plus they offer quieter movement. They are strong and therefore prevent wear and tear reducing the stress from the other garage door components.
Maintaining & Lubricating Your Garage Door Rollers
If your garage door is making a lot of noise, it may be time to lubricate the rollers. Garage doors have two types of rollers: steel and nylon. Steel rollers are less expensive but they require more maintenance because they can rust. Nylon rollers are more expensive but they don’t require as much maintenance.
We at Bel Air Garage Door Repair always recommend that you lubricate your garage door rollers at least once a year. This will help to keep them quiet and working properly. If you have steel rollers, you’ll need to lubricate them more often because they can rust.
