Here at All Glass, we want to help you keep your windows, glass doors, and other glass features of your property in the best possible condition. One glass feature that many people struggle with is their sliding glass doors, which often get stuck or become difficult to operate. In this article, we’ll go over a few signs to look for in order to determine if you need sliding glass door repairs. If you notice any of these things happening to your glass door, we encourage you to give us a call.
- Misalignment- One sign that you need sliding glass door repairs is your door becoming misaligned, meaning that it’s not sitting properly in the track, or that the track itself is bent. When this happens, your door will become difficult to open and close, as it will no longer move smoothly along its designated track, but instead veer into tighter spaces that weren’t designed to accommodate it. To tell if your door is misaligned, take a look at both the top and bottom, which should have a uniform space between them and the exterior wall. If the spaces are uneven, call our team.
- Broken Rollers- Another indicator that you need sliding glass door repair is broken rollers. These components are what allow your door to glide smoothly in its track, and if your door is becoming difficult to move, it’s likely that the rollers have an obstruction or are failing due to wear.
- Drafts- Lastly, any drafts near your door are a sign that you need sliding glass door repair. If it is noticeably hotter near your door in the summer or noticeably colder in the winter, there is most likely a gap between the glass and the surrounding framework. This will not only make your property uncomfortable, but it can also lead to higher energy bills, so we encourage you to call our team to get it fixed as soon as possible.
