How do I Fix Garage Door Rollers?

Working on your garage door is not a DIY task. The truth is that garage door roller replacement is a complex task. If you don’t know how to do it or you’re not aware of the safety precautions, you may end up endangering yourself. 

For instance, if you take the wrong bolt and loosen it, the entire door may come crashing down on you. Another example would be installing the rollers incorrectly. If you don’t know how to do it properly, you’re only putting additional stress on the other parts of the door. Consequently, you’ll end up with larger and more expensive issues.

Moreover, before you think of replacing or repairing your garage door on your own, you should remember that the entire system weighs at least 150 pounds. Imagine what would happen if that weight fell on you.

It’s also worth noting that issues with rollers usually stem from other problems in the garage door system. For example, if there are issues with the door’s alignment or its tracks, the rollers can prematurely wear out. In cases like this, a garage door roller replacement is merely a temporary solution.
