What does a sliding door repair service include?

Sliding door repair specialists can help you repair your door whether you need a simple replacement part, or you need to replace the door entirely. Though the method of repair may vary between handymen, here’s what you can expect from a standard service:

Cleaning out the tracks

The most common cause of a difficult-to-open sliding door is debris in the lower track. The channel can easily become clogged with dirt and disrupt the rollers on the door. The first step of your sliding door track repair service is to clean it out. The repairer will clean out the lower and upper tracks using a stiff brush, toothbrush, and a hand vacuum. After the tracks are thoroughly cleaned, they’ll apply an aerosol lubricant to both upper and lower tracks.

Roller repair

Need sliding door roller repair? If the door is still difficult to open after the track is clean, your repairer will adjust the rollers at the bottom of the door. Rollers can wear down with time and lower the bottom of the door, causing the door to rub against the track. Most sliding doors have an adjusting screw located at the bottom of the door ends that raises and lowers the roller. The handyman will adjust this screw until the door stops rubbing on the bottom track and it becomes easier to slide open and close.

Roller replacement

If the roller on the sliding door is damaged beyond repair, the handyman may decide the best remedy is to replace it entirely. The stiles of the moving panel are first unscrewed and removed to detach the door. One handyman will lift the door so that the other handyman can slide the bottom rail over. The roller can be unscrewed, removed, and replaced. The door is put back into place, and the rollers are adjusted so the door sits squarely in frame.

Door replacement

If your whole sliding door needs to be replaced, your handyman will take the same steps to remove the door, as they would if they were replacing the roller. However, instead of replacing the roller, they’ll remove the door entirely, and replace it with a new one. They’ll clean the tracks and adjust the rollers so your new door can operate smoothly.

Need a cavity sliding door repaired. One of the latches holding the door to the top rollers has broken (see photos - apologies, these are all upside down). I can't find replacement latches online or at Bunnings. If you have these latches lying around, or know where to source them, this is any easy fix. Otherwise, might need a new assembly. In any case, looking for someone to get this door operational for us again. Happy to meet the market in terms of cost.

Did a great job on what turned out to be a more complicated task than expected. A quick thinker able to come up with different options to get the job done. Punctual, professional and friendly. Recommended.

The wooden sliding door that divides our kitchen and lounge room is not sliding properly. Same thing happened many years ago and someone adjusted the little roller pully thing and that seemed to do the trick.

Willy was great, was early for the job, fixed our problematic sliding door and even offered to check the other doors. Would highly recommend him.
