Garage door rollers are extremely important to the function of your door as well as its convenience. While some rollers must be replaced sooner than others, most nothing lasts forever. If you suspect that you need garage door replacement rollers, give us a call. Perfect Solutions Garage Door will send a professional tech crew out to your home to determine exactly what you issue is.
In most cases, garage door rollers which were installed prior to 2008 are considered low standard at best. These were akin to hot wheel assembly consisting of a metal stem and plastic wheels. Even those manufactured and installed after 2008 will still need replacements at some point.
Garage Door Roller Issues
Routine garage door maintenance can extend the life of all of your garage door parts, including the rollers. One of the most common issues with roller malfunctions is due to grime and dust buildup. When this debris cakes into the inner part of the lip it causes an increased amount of friction.
The friction results in worn wheels and replacement rollers. Keeping them clean and lubricated is not a fix all; however, it will help. In the end, no matter how well you care for them, they will wear out. It is a good idea to protect your investment for as long as possible. When the time comes for garage door roller replacements call one of our expert reps to find out what we have to offer your family.
Keep in mind that worn rollers can cause other damages and malfunctions. This translates to future costs as well. At some point your garage door will get stuck due to the force which is exerted upon the rollers. The resulting damage is often one of two issues.
Garage Door Roller Damage
The smallest resulting issue is your cable system is damaged and deteriorates either slowly or, more likely, rapidly. Once the tension is released, both the spring and cable system will be thrown out of balance. Your garage door may also jump its track.
You will need to call upon a professional tech to align your door back into its track as well as repair your spring and cable system. If the damage is extensive, your safety cable and garage door spring systems may need to be replaced completely.
The worst case scenario is irreparable and costly damage. If the door becomes jammed and the opener does not stop running, your garage door may be completely destroyed. This will cause creases to form in the panels and your door could become a scrap metal taco. This means that your entire garage door will need replacing.
