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.
For any sliding door repairs, homeowners should weigh whether to take on the project themselves or hire a professional. While a DIY project might save money, some of these repairs have risks that could cause further problems. Professionals know how to fix doors properly because of their years of experience and can do so in a timely manner.
