Garage Door Roller Repair

When it comes to the smooth operation of your garage door, every component plays a crucial role. However, few parts bear as much of the burden as your garage door rollers. Over time, wear and tear can take its toll, making garage door roller repair an essential service.

At GDRCA Garage Door Repair and Gate, we understand the importance of maintaining your garage door’s integrity and functionality. With our expertise, your garage door will operate smoothly and reliably, day in and day out.

Signs You Need Garage Door Roller Repair

Identifying the early signs of roller damage can save you from the inconvenience of a fully broken garage door and potentially costly repairs. Here are a few indicators:

  • Squeaky Noises: Unusual sounds when the door moves might mean your rollers need attention.
  • Uneven Movement: If your door hesitates or jerks, the rollers might be worn or damaged.
  • Difficulty Opening or Closing: Rollers in poor condition can make operating your door manually a challenge.

The Issue and the Solution

Garage door rollers can come in various materials, including Nylon, Steel, and Plastic. Each type has its advantages, from the quiet operation of Nylon Rollers to the durability of Steel Rollers. However, when rollers wear out or break, they can lead to property damage, and personal injury, and disrupt your everyday challenges.

The solution involves a thorough inspection by professional garage door technicians to determine the type of rollers needed for your door, be it 2-inch diameter rollers suitable for double doors or specialized rollers for residential doors. Proper installation and maintenance, including Oil Lubricants and checking for correct hole alignment, ensure your door returns to its original tension and cycle efficiency.

The Process

Repairing or replacing your garage door rollers involves several key steps:

  1. Inspection: Identifying the issue and deciding on the type of roller needed.
  2. Preparation: Securing the door in place with vice grips and releasing tension from the springs.
  3. Replacement: Removing old rollers and installing new ones, ensuring they fit perfectly into guide holes and hinge holes.
  4. Lubrication and Testing: Applying oil lubricants and testing the door for smooth operation.

Types of Rollers

When selecting rollers, understanding the options is key:

  • Nylon Rollers: Offer quiet operation and less stress on the torsion spring.
  • Steel Rollers: Known for their durability and strength, ideal for heavy or double doors.
  • Plastic Rollers: A cost-effective option for lighter, residential doors.

Customer Reviews

Great Garage Door Service!

My garage door spring broke Friday around 11am. By 2pm the door was fixed. They could have put me off until Monday but was able squeeze me in. Fast but thorough going above and beyond fixing more then the broken spring. Highly recommend.

– Rick D. (

Exceptional service.

Another company told us we needed an entirely new unit – Chief garage door company not only fixed our problems but did at 1/5 of what the other wanted to charge. There’s a reason why this company is ranked so high. Extremely knowledgeable, honest and professional.

– Betty J. (Bing Maps Review)

Excellent work, excellent service.

Mark came out to perform a main visit on my garage doors, when he got there he said they were in good shape so it was going to cost less then the original agreed upon price. My garage doors are now smoother and quieter while costing me less money then I had planned on.
