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 the 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.

Our large sliding door to our garden is broken and needs fixing (the door that slides doesn't open properly and takes a lot to close it as it appears to have come off both at the top and bottom). We also need vertical blinds fitted on the sliding doors, and two sets of horizontal blinds fitted in the two bedrooms on the windows.

I have three sliding doors on my cupboard. They are attached from the top track however the doors are not attached to the bottom track. The doors keep jamming into one another. How much to repair this and how long will it take? Thanks
