What Are The Garage Door Rollers?

Garage door rollers are the wheels placed on the metal tracks found on either side of the door. They attach the tracks to the garage door, allowing for a smooth rising and lowering movement. When you lift the garage door open, the rollers slide up, carrying the door with them until the door retracts fully. When you lower the door to close, the wheels slide down the tracks until the door forms into its neutral position.

The garage door rollers are a vital part of your garage door because you would not be able to close or open your door without them. When are not working correctly, be sure to call us at Centrum Garage Door Repair to get everything back in service. 

Garage Door Rollers

Types of garage door rollers

Plastic Rollers

The most affordable option, plastic rollers have limited functions. They get the job done, but they do not last as long as other materials. They can also support only a certain amount of weight. They are best for single panel garage doors.

Steel Rollers

Steel rollers are more reliable than plastic rollers. Due to their durability, they can support more weight and last longer than plastic rollers. When in motion, though, they can be noisier than other rollers.

Nylon Rollers

Most garage door experts recommend using nylon rollers for any garage. They have the lightness of plastic rollers, but the strength and longevity of nylon. They are also much quieter when sliding along the tracks.

Issues with garage door rollers

Improper Lubrication

Without adequate lubrication, garage door rollers can create some annoying issues. Squeaking and shakiness when raising and lowering the door are just some of the irritations that may arise. For this, it is essential to lubricate the rollers and the garage door tracks properly to prevent more severe problems coming up in the future.

Dents and Damage In Tracks

The garage door tracks play a critical role in the proper functioning of your rollers. If there are any damages, like dents and misconfigurations, your rollers are not going to operate fluidly.

Detached Tracks

Sometimes, after long periods of usage, the brackets holding the tracks to the wall can come undone. This can become dangerous if a garage door expert does not take a look.
