When you think your garage door rollers might need replacement, how will you know? Here are some things to look out for:
- As the ball bearings inside the rollers wear, you’ll hear a clicking sound that will get louder over time.
- Your garage door might come off its track because the rollers are worn and should have been replaced months, if not years ago.
- Bad rollers can cause not only your garage door components but your garage door opener parts to wear out prematurely.
Garage door rollers are an important part of your garage door operation. They run in the tracks to help hold the door in the proper alignment. Since everyone wants a smooth and quiet garage door, replacing your old garage door rollers will significantly improve how your door operates. They also help to increase the life of your garage door and garage door opener.
Aladdin Garage Door Repair in Minneapolis, MN uses rollers that carry a lifetime warranty and are the longest lasting roller on the market. These 13-ball bearing nylon rollers and 7” stem rollers make sure that if the door is hit, it will most likely stay on the track. When the nylon wheel makes contact with the metal track, your door will operate smoothly and quietly. Nylon rollers are an upgrade from the plastic bushing rollers that come standard with a builder grade garage door. Keep in mind, however, that nylon rollers will need periodic lubrication to maintain their performance.
