You may not realise it, but getting a sliding door track replacement will have your door sliding like new again.
People will never think twice about getting their car serviced but often put up with an impossible to open sliding door. A sliding door track is like any item that is under constant wear and tear.
Your door is quite heavy and the door tracks are what is helping or hindering the smooth, gliding process.
Damaged sliding door tracks can be a real problem for your sliding doors.
Is your sliding door bouncing?
If the track is damaged, even with new rollers, the door may appear to bounce.
This bouncing will deteriorate the circumference of the roller. You may find that the rollers installed don’t last nearly as long as they should and if they are installed incorrectly the door never works normally and deteriorates quickly.
How to fix sliding door track
The first thing you need to do is understand the nature of the track problem. It is easy to ask the question ‘How do I fix the sliding door track?’ but it isn’t a straightforward answer.
We’ve seen doors that have sunk and the metal bits have torn strips off the track itself, causing irreparable damage.
You cannot fix sliding door tracks like that.
So the first thing you need to do is diagnose the problem or have a professional tell you what the problem with your sliding door track is.
Once you know the extent of the damage, you can then fix your sliding door track in a number of different ways.
Your track may be in bad shape and you don’t even know it
95% of the tracks we repair are so bad we need to machine the track back to a stump.
We then place a metal capping over the top to effectively give you a new track.
If you do not do it properly, then your sliding door rollers will quickly break and you will be back to square one. So frustrating.
The reason we repair your track the way we do is to make sure our work lasts for many years to come.

Biggest reason for sliding door track replacement
Possibly the quality of the rollers used in the installation or previous repair to the door weren’t capable of bearing the sliding door’s weight, and the door requires a higher quality roller, possibly a stainless steel roller configuration.
It is more often than not the lower quality roller which does the most damage to the sliding door track. You see when the poor quality roller chips or starts to break, it cuts into the track, causing long-term damage. You must get the rollers fixed in this case. Otherwise, you will be up for new track repairs every couple of months.
