How To Install Sliding Closet Door - Guidelines For Sliding Closet Door Repair

If you are finding difficulty in opening in your old patio door and if the door needs loads of effort to pull open, if yes, then it might be the right time when you should change the rollers of this sliding door. As a common rule, the rollers on the sliding glass door would last anywhere between ten to fifteen years, but eventually they wear out.

If you don’t mind trying your hands in dealing with these doors, then you should do the sliding doors repair by your own without taking the help of the professionals. This way, you don’t have to spend any fortune on paying anyone else to do this job. All you need to do the sliding closet door repair is a little bit of advice of information along with adequate strength to pull out the door.

The sliding doors are mainly made of the materials like aluminum, vinyl and wood. Regardless of the material utilized, these doors use the ball bearing rollers to open and shut easily in both directions. Besides, there are two screws on each part of the door near the bottom side. These screws help the doors to stay in the place. While repairing, inspect these screws closely and adjust these accordingly. 

Use some large flat bladed screwdriver to alleviate the door weight from the roller and therefore turn the adjustable screw with the help of the appropriate type of screwdriver.

But this is not the only problem that you would face during the sliding doors repairs. Sometime, you would find that the adjustment screw is missing or the screw would not turn, then it is the time when you have to lift off the entire door out of the track and therefore you have to remove the large screws and then pull off the bottom area of the door. Besides, check it carefully if there is enough room to pull out the assembly of the roller.

Check the conditions of the rollers. If they are worn out, then change them with a new one. You will get some more details about the sliding door repairs by logging on to

  3. I have a door from my utility room to the garage that is very old and the area where the latch exits the door by the striker plate is cracked and impossible to secure the plate screws to.
    The jamb at the striker plate was shot as well (looks like someone tried to kick the door in at some point).
    I replaced the jamb and striker but I was wondering if there is a way to repair the door instead of replacing it?

    I thought about making a metal sleeve the same width as the door that would slide over the area with a hole for the knob and the bolt. Does anything like this already exist or is there another repair method that would address this issue?

    The door is a very nice solid core door so I would like to save it if possible.
    Any input would be appreciated!
