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. Whether you need help fixing the panels of a sliding balcony door or repairing sliding patio doors, Taskers are here to help. Though the method of repair may vary between handymen, here’s what you can expect from a standard maintenance and repair 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 the upper and lower tracks.
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.
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 the frame.
Planning to install new doors? 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.

Our sliding door has been acting up of late. Initially, we believe one of the rollers was broken, as the door would vibrate/bounce a bit when sliding, but after attempting to spray WD-40, I believe gunk has gotten stuck underneath and it has made it very stiff to slide at all. I have tried removing the door to inspect myself, to no avail. So I think there are two jobs to tackle, removing and cleaning the gunk out AND repairing/replacing the roller.
