What is an internal sliding door?
Internal sliding doors connect one room to another within a home, are typically made of glass, and operate through a series of tracks and rollers at top and bottom of the door.
Traditionally, sliding doors are positioned as an exit or entrance to a home however some layouts have them built internally.
What are the common problems with internal sliding doors?
Sliding doors components cannot last forever. They get worn and brittle over time.
Let’s take a look at the common sliding door problems we see day after day.
Broken plastic rollers
The plastic roller that allows the door to slide on a track can become brittle over time, crack and break. This causes the door to constantly come off the track and become immovable.
We are very careful to use the highest quality sliding door rollers when we repair your door.
For you to have a long lasting and efficiently sliding door, you need to make sure your door is supported with the right gear.
We use high-quality rollers that can withstand the weight of your door over time. This means your door will continue to slide like new again for many years to come.
A worn track
The track the door rolls on can become worn over time.
This happens as the result of broken or worn rollers that are not replaced promptly and damage the soft aluminium track.
Time, corrosion, and weather can also cause a track to become worn.
A unique part of our repair process is our track machining process. We machine your track back and place a new track over the top. We then make sure our rollers fit perfectly.
Collapsed top mainframe
The integrity of the frame of an internal sliding door can fail over time causing it to collapse down on top of the door making it impossible to slide.
The door may appear normal but the shift in the frame causes the door to become difficult to move.
You may also have difficulty lining up the sliding door lock. This compromises the security of your home.
When we run repairs, we make sure your lock lines up perfectly.
How important is it to use high-quality rollers when repairing the door?
Using rollers that are not made for your brand of door or using low-quality rollers can cause issues down the road.
For example, rollers that are lower quality will break down more frequently. Poor quality rollers can also damage your track costing you more money on more repairs.
