Patio / June 13, 2018 /
Hinged patio doors with built in blinds are a great choice if you have plenty of room to open and close them. They can swing in or out and can also come in a French style, which is a very common option to have on a patio. Built in blinds could be especially useful as they would not get in the way while opening and closing the door.
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.
