Sliding patio doors with built in blinds are a perfect option if you have limited space since the doors do not swing in or out. They present a wide view onto your patio and adding blinds built in can enhance the look. Built in blinds are considered a smart choice for these patio doors as exterior blinds would make them very difficult to slide open.
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.
