Common types of issues with Timber sliding door repairs
The first thing with timber sliding doors is they are heavy.
As mentioned above, nothing is quite as impressive as a beautiful hardwood timber sliding door.
Usually, you find the timber doors are the frame and it is filled with glass in the middle.
By far the most common type of issue is broken or worn rollers.
As you can appreciate, and likely know from trying to lift your door, they are heavy.
This puts a lot of pressure and excessive wear on each roller.
So the very first common issue with timber sliding doors are the rollers.
You may find the roller has become brittle over time and has snapped off. This will cause a grating noise and make it near impossible to move.
You need to get these fixed ASAP as they can really damage your track.
Damaged tracks on your timber sliding door
The next major issue with these doors is the track itself.
As soon as you get a broken roller, it starts to chip away and take chunks out of the track.
The longer you have broken rollers on your track, the worse it gets.
The good news is, no matter how bad your track is, we machine it back to a stump and fix it like new.
There are a couple of major types of timber sliding doors and we’ll cover a brief on each one here:
Main types of timber sliding doors
Given the impressiveness of the wooden doors, most people put these in a highly visible place.
We often see these types of sliding doors going out to the verandah or outside entertaining area.
They are an impressive site.
Usually, these are very large and very heavy. But they do look amazing.
You might call these patio doors, as they lead out to the patio. No matter what you call them, we know what you are talking about 😉
Internal cavity doors
You also get a lot of timber internal cavity doors. These are usually going from one room to another.
They are also common as doors leading into an ensuite or toilet area.
Often these will hang from the ceiling and have the rollers at the top.
These timber cavity doors are much lighter and there isn’t as much wear and tear on the individual rollers in this case.
Timber front door
People love to spend a lot of time and money on their main entrance door. And for very good reasons.
First impressions are everything and nothing is more impressive than a large, unique timber entrance door.
Every time we turn up to a house with a large wooden door, a big smile comes across our face. We love it.
These doors aren’t usually sliding doors but instead have hinges to keep the door in place.
While this isn’t a major part of the repair work we do, they are still impressive.
