There is a common misconception that sliding doors are difficult to slide due to their size and weight.

The sliding door will drop out of alignment, the door can’t be latched / locked, the door becomes difficult to slide and there may even be a gap at the top allowing the elements in.  Whilst it may seem simple to replace the rollers yourself, they can actually be quite complex to do.  The correct roller for the size & weight of the door and its coastal position is important and these commercial grade rollers are often not available at your local hardware store. Once the rollers are replaced they need to be adjusted to sit in the frame correctly, so the doors glide smoothly.  Roller deterioration or collapse is often left until the door no longer opens and closes.  This can result in more damage to the door, track, and make the problem much worse. The end result will be a costlier repair that could have been prevented.

With proper care, your roller should last longer than the manufactures’ warranty period before they need replacing.  Sand, dog hair and dirty in the tracks are some of the leading causes of roller deterioration. Vacuuming the tracks to remove debris and washing down the sliding doors and hardware regularly will improve the longevity of the rollers.  Don’t leave roller replacement till the last minute, call Exitoso & Co for help. We will promptly repair or replace the roller and get the door running smoothly again.
