Sliding doors move easily because of the rollers installed on either side of the door. However, if the door gets stuck and must be pushed against to move, it is likely the rollers have an obstruction or are failing because of wear. Dirty rollers can have various items in them leaves, sticks, dirt which obstructs door movement. They will need to be cleaned to be able to move again without getting stuck on the track or against one another. If they have cracks or bends, homeowners will need new rollers. This is especially true for sliding doors with metal rollers, which rust over time.
Instead of textured glass for privacy, there is also an option for a french patio door with blinds. French patio doors with blinds between the glass are a great way to save space as well as have the door look great. For any style home, having blinds inside the glass is an option that should be highly considered. The blinds do not get dirty and they allow for a sleek look without any added dangers of dangling cords.
