Sliding door repair West Vancouver

Sliding doors are one of the most popular door options today as they provide a classy look to a house. Also they are easy to operate and take lesser space than other door options. Generally, the derailed rollers are the main culprit behind the poor functioning of the sliding doors. Hence, whenever your sliding doors do not work properly, check on to the rollers first.

While checking the rollers first thing you need to do is unscrew the rollers from the bottom edge of the door. Then pull out the rollers and the rubber weather stripping gasket where the rollers reside. Now remove the rollers from the gasket which can be a greasy affair! Once you have pulled out the rollers now clean them up by applying turpentine with the help of a brush. Using a wire brush becomes necessary if tough debris exists, then wipe clean with a rug. After cleaning the rollers examine them and coat them with silicone spray or penetrating oil. Now reassemble the parts in the reverse order.

Another reason behind non-functioning the sliding doors might be the door track. The dirt and loose debris on the track can be stopping the door from sliding. Here, again use a wire brush to clean up the track and finish up by wiping it with a rug. Once you have cleaned the track, then lubricate the track with silicone spray or paraffin for smooth sliding of the door.

Still the door is not functioning properly! Then you need to hire an expert and reliable door repair service providers for help.
