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.

Handyman - sliding door repairs & seals


Port Melbourne VIC, Australia

2nd Jul 2020

Hello! I’m in Port Melbourne and hoping a Handyman/person can help with the timber sliding door in bedroom. It makes such a lot of noise when windy and lets in drafts. I think the seals need replacing. The handle is loose-ish...I think the screws need tightening and maybe anything else to help secure the door/stop the creaks. Sorry, it’s hard to get good photos! Timeframe: not urgent. Any time in the next few weeks.

Odd jobs - replace floor tiles, fix sliding door


Northcote, Victoria, Australia

20th May 2020

We require a handy person to do several odd jobs around the house: 1. Source and replace 2 x slate floor tiles that have come loose and broken (190 x 380mm). Also looking to purchase a few spares for next time. 2. Back sliding timber door is old and in bad shape. The timber has expanded due to moisture and is very tight in the frame and difficult to open. Will possibly need to be planed back and roller replaced. Not looking to replace door at this stage.

Phil was prompt, polite and did a good job. However, we were not on the same page as to what I meant by fixing the door, as only one part of the broken door was fixed. The work that was done is to a good standard, but lack of communication meant my expectations weren't met. Phil did a great job of replacing two missing tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, but our house was left quite dirty afterwards.

I recently bought an apartment and discovered the sliding door doesn't close properly. It doesn't appear to slide all the way across and might be due to the runner having debris in it. Hoping to find someone who could fix it up by clearing it up/adjusting or identify the root cause of the issue.

A big sliding door made of metal frame with masonite on one side has come off the runners. It needs lifting with a crowbar to go back on the runners and the runners need greasing so it doesn't happen again. Problem is this door is separating two businesses and there is no security unless it is closed - it is currently open as someone tried to fix it... Aaargghhhhh. The door weighs a lot, so my husband will be there to help. We need it done at 8am in the morning?

Thanks Barry, champion to get us out of trouble in a hurry!
