Patio / June 20, 2018 /
French doors fall into two categories, indoor and external. As the name suggests, an exterior French door is used to connect the inside of your home to the patio or exterior. A regular exterior or interior version opens just as any traditional door. However, modern designs feature sliding capabilities which have added even more value to this much loved design.
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.
