Common Problems with Sliding Door Tracks
If your door track is broken, you will see it with your naked eye. The door gets stuck because there is an obstruction. The rail might be either broken, cracked, or bent. In any case, the door will suffer, and it can destabilize the whole system.
If despite the damaged rail, the door still opens and closes, it is forced. If you leave it that way, it will eventually stop working. Don’t wait until you cannot move it anymore and fix the problem. That way you will prevent other parts from bending in the worst case. Other potential issues are to damage the rollers or even the small adjustment screws due to the excessive and unnecessary force.
A collateral damage that will not affect functionality, but the looks of the door is that it will scratch the door. Restoring scratches can be even more expensive than replacing some rails.
How to do a Patio Door Rail Replacement
To start with your patio door rail replacement, first of all, you must get the replacement track. Stores have the right machine to cut it according to your needs. Take note of the exact size of your rail and take it to the warehouse. Then buy a track section and ask them to cut it for you. It is the same tracks as you can find at interior pocket doors on your home or business.
Once you have it at home, it is very easy. Just unmounts the door first to free the rail. Then, unscrew the current rail. Most rails have visible screws, and it is very easy to take them out.
Once you have taken out all broken and damaged pieces, it is time to place the new rail. Mark the points where the screws were in the previous track, and make the holes in the exact locations. That way, you can take advantage of the same holes on the surface and screwing will be easier. Then, present the piece. Make sure you put it in the exact same place so that all other parts of your sliding door fit in perfectly. Screw the new piece back and put the sliding door to its rightful place. You might need to adjust it after you place the door back to let it slide properly.
