What Are Garage Door Rollers?Garage door rollers are the part of the system that runs in the tracks to hold the door in the correct place. Though small, your garage door rollers are an essential part of your garage door system. By having your rollers in good condition the system can operate with less resistance while opening and closing the door. This will help everything run smoothly.
Replacing Garage Door RollersThe most common reasons why your garage door rollers break and need to be replaced are:
- Rusty- Over time, your rollers may become rusty and not work correctly. Rust weakens the roller and can cause it to break. If you happen to see rusty rollers before they break, it is best to go ahead and replace them.
- Broken bolt- With the constant strain on this part from the door, the bolts for the roller can break. If this happens it is a good idea to go ahead and replace them. Most of the time you will not know if it is broken, but it is a good idea during your routine check of your system to check them.
- Life of the roller- Just like other parts, rollers need to be replaced after so many cycles are completed due to constant wear. A full cycle is opening and closing of the door. It is recommended that garage door rollers need to be replaced after around 20,000 cycles.
