Signs You Need to Replace Garage Door Rollers
Worn garage door roller wheel
Garage door rollers are prone to have wear and tear damage over time, especially if not lubricated periodically. Worn rollers can pop off the track and stop the door from functioning.
The roller doesn’t spin freely on the shaft.
If the rollers are locked, they are going to have a hard time sliding over the track, causing the door to not work properly.
Bent garage door rollers
If the rollers become bent from excessive force or use, they aren’t going to glide along the track as they should. They could also come off the track more easily.
Excessive vibration when operating
The rollers shouldn’t vibrate much at all. If they do, it’s a sign that they’re loose and should be replaced.
Types of Garage Door Rollers
There are three primary types of garage door rollers, and we can install all three. They include:
Nylon garage door rollers cost the most, but there is a good reason for their price. They are as durable as steel and as quiet as plastic if not quieter.
Steel garage door rollers are durable and can last for a long time. The drawback here is that this type of rollers can make a lot of noise compared to the other types.
Plastic garage door rollers are made of a durable plastic material. They’re less expensive than other types and don’t have ball bearings. However, they don’t last as long as nylon or steel.
Yes and no. It is possible to replace the garage door rollers by yourself, but it can be very dangerous during the replacing process and afterword. When not installed properly, the garage door rollers can cause the garage door to go off-track.
We always recommend nylon garage door rollers. They might be a bit more expensive than the other ones, but they will last longer than plastic roller (saving you money in the long term) and won't make noise like steel rollers.
Yes, lubricating the rollers every 3 months and the track once a year will help your garage door rollers last longer.
