The life expectancy of a garage door depends on several variables, such as construction and maintenance, but most of today’s models are designed for longevity. However, the door is composed of many interconnected parts that may need to be replaced more often, the rollers included. Although, like the door itself, answering the question “when should the rollers be replaced?” depends on usage and the type. While there are several types, the highest-quality, most durable are nylon rollers with ball bearings.
One of the most significant indications for replacement is an increasingly noisy garage door. The way to differentiate this noise from a cable-drive automatic opener is if it is intermittent, sudden, or emits a popping sound. There may also be a problem with them if your garage door appears uneven or, worse, comes off its tracks. Should any of these problems present themselves, immediately contact a local garage door professional to come and repair the door, ensuring its safe and reliable operation.
Premium Nylon Rollers with Ball Bearings
A premium set of nylon rollers with ball bearings is ideal for replacing aging, damaged, noisy, or worn rollers. These rollers feature a nylon wheel, steel stem, and ball bearings to provide a quieter and smoother operation as they travel along the vertical tracks. Additional advantages of these quiet rollers include increased durability and performance. However, because most garage doors require multiple rollers, it is best to contact a garage door repair professional about replacing them simultaneously.
