With regular use, your sliding patio doors will need maintenance. When you get broken rollers, you will notice immediately because the sliding mechanism will fail. It will be harder to move the patio glass door, and the damaged rollers will give you nothing but trouble.
The problem is that sometimes homeowners do not notice the damage because it occurs gradually. When you get used to it bit by bit, it is common to let time pass until the rollers are actually broken. When this happens, at some point the door will need an urgent repair because it will not move. If it is an entry door, then a simple sliding door roller replacement will be an emergency.
If you want to call door companies to take care of your commercial or residential needs 24 hr, then try with AMPM Ottawa Locksmith & Doors. They are working in Ottawa Ontario with professional door repairman to help on your replacement and installation of any type of exterior patio door.
When rollers are old or damaged, the door latch (lock mechanism) can be opened easily from the outside of the door, as it's loose and a gap can be made by pushing the door sideways. If your patio door rollers are off the track or broken, replace them ASAP, and consider adding at the same time a security bar or additional internal pin lock to secure your home or business.
Another approach is to fix your broken rollers yourself. If you can get a replacement, then it is very easy to perform your patio door rollers repair. Only follow these steps:
1. Detach the sliding door and remove it.
2. Detach the damaged rollers.
3. Put on the new wheels.
4. Put back your sliding glass door.
As you can see it is just a matter of few steps.

Performing a roller change on your own can be a cheap way to go if you do it right. However, the costs of messing up with the repair can be high. To avoid any inconvenience, follow these recommendations as you fix your sliding patio door:
Don’t do the task alone. A door is big and requires maneuvering. Ask for help to prevent an accident.
Use the right tools. On most cases, you will need just a set of screwdrivers. However, some door installation companies use wrenches for the adjustment of some parts. If that is the case, then do an inspection to get the right tools.
Get the same rollers you have to avoid any incompatible accessory. Some stores apply charges if you want to change the merchandise you already bought, while others will not accept refunds. If it is possible, take the damaged part to the store, just to be sure.
When fixing an interior door, make sure you isolate the area you are working on. If you have kids, keep them away from the repairs.
