That low cost does not come without its fair share of maintenance. Painting and prepping are both important steps in maintaining a wooden French door. Additionally, the patina of the wood can peel or fade if it is an exterior product that faces the sun. It can also be damaged by moisture.
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.
