French patio doors, or otherwise known as hinged patio doors, are a great addition to any home. They give a classic feel to any space while looking elegant and functional. From the outside in, french patio doors allow for natural light as well as a patio view that could add that little extra pop that makes any space look radiant.
Before you pick out the best color for your front door, you will want to plan ahead, avoiding any unwelcome surprises. When you are painting a door, you will want to take the door completely off the frame, as well as any hardware. Additionally, you will need both a paint and primer to get the most professional look possible if you are doing this as a DIY project. You should also consider hiring a pro, to get the look you desire, since the front door is the first thing everyone sees.
What also causes rollers to jump off track is a bent one. Bent tracks can be either inward or outward and prevent the door from moving all the way on the track. Inward bend, towards the floor, can be repaired with pliers or vise grips by pulling the bend back into place. Outward bend will require pliers, a hammer or rubber mallet to repair it by pushing it down. If a homeowner places something atop the outward bend, it will be easier for the hammer to hit that point and push the bend back into place. Be sure to tap gently and remove the door to avoid damages.
