Garage Door Roller Services in Columbus, OH!
Garage doors are very complicated and go beyond just pressing a button to open or close it. These doors have many moving parts that need to work together for an efficient performance of the door. The torsion system, for example, relies on bearing plates, torsion tubes, drums, torsion cables and the torsion spring to open the door. If any of these parts have a defect than the door will probably not open and when it does it can cause a fatal damages or injuries.
One part of the garage door that usually causes the door to function improperly is the garage door rollers. If they are in bad shape, then your door isn’t going anywhere.
Garage door rollers are by design partially locked into the track which curves up at the bottom to hold them in place. They aren’t very complex, but they usually cause a lot of problems. Here are few common issues with garage door rollers and how to fix them.
Worn Out Rollers
The Roller is Stuck
Bent Roller Stems
Roller with Plastic Wheels
Rollers with plastic wheels tend to wear down on the thread of the wheel, and later the thread wears down making the diameter of the wheel so small that, it can pop out of the track anytime. They do great at the beginning, but it would be worth considering replacing them with nylon or steel especially if your door has a lot of weight and is exposed to frequently open and closes.
Accumulated Dust, Grime and Dirt or Rust

Call Columbus Garage Door Pros Today!These are just but a few of the common issues with garage door rollers, but there are many more that you cannot notice, but a professional door expert will. The best way to deal with most common problems with garage door rollers is by replacing them with a new one. Some issue, however, can be handled without replacements, either way attempting to do any by yourself poses a grave danger of injuries. In case you are confident to do the job yourself, and you are qualified to do it, it’s good to keep in mind that the full weight of your door rests on the roller when the garage door is on up position, and when the garage door is on the down position, the weight of the door rests on the bottom edge of the door, not the roller.

My roller kept coming off the track, so I called Columbus Garage Door Pros and they came to check it out. It was slightly bent so they replaced it and now it works perfectly. Thanks!
