For many people, the sliding door repair cost is totally irrelevant. Now, you might find that funny for us to say but it is very true.
When we arrive at someone’s home to fix their sliding door, often, it has been through years of frustration and impossible to move doors that are just sitting there, unable to move.
Some people, in their testimonials to us, tell us how they’ve gone through physio sessions as a result of putting their shoulder out from having to move their sliding door.
You see, for many people, it doesn’t matter what the cost is of their sliding door repair because once it is repaired because you will be able to move it with one finger.
It is an amazing difference when you go from an impossible-to-move door to an effortlessly gliding door.
Family members struggling to open and close the door
If you have young children, young kids and young family members, many of them may not be able to even access or move the door.
Often, the door is jammed so much and the rollers and all the materials inside have disintegrated so much that you cannot move the door.
You can see a few examples of sliding door tracks and rollers that have gone way beyond their used by dates.
Having said that, there’s always a cost in order to get your door fixed. Now, there are a couple of elements that we look for any door repair.
When we have a look at your door, the first thing we want to know is the brand of your door.
The brand of the door is important because it lets us know what the internal components will be.
The sliding door repair cost comes down to these components
It’ll let us know what type of rollers are installed in the door, the types of springs that are installed in the door and the types of lock that you have which may or may not line up anymore as a result of it being jammed.
The next thing we like to do is have a look at the rollers.
The rollers are very important and the quality of the rollers will affect the quality of the roll of your door, so we will go in and have a look at the rollers and make sure that they are okay.
If your door cannot move, your rollers are totally stuffed.
They will be broken and we will replace them. We will have to replace them in order for the door to roll smoothly.
Now, the other component is the track.
The track is the very part that it rolls on. You’ve probably been moving your jammed door and sliding it across the track with broken rollers so it’s probably cut up and maybe in some cases, disintegrated or it may have even broken off.
We often see the sliding door tracks that are that bad that they totally have to be removed.
Hopefully, you haven’t done any damage to the underlying path of the door. That is important.
When it comes to the sliding door repair cost, those are the key factors we take into account.
