If your garage door is no longer moving smoothly, it may be that the garage door rollers are damaged or worn out. There is no one size fits all when it comes to garage door rollers. A mismatch of your garage door rollers to the type of garage door or tracks you have can cause some long term damage to your overall garage door mechanism.

Garage door rollers, commonly referred to as “wheels,” are composed of a steel bar connected to wheels at either end.  The rollers run up and down the garage door track.  These rollers allow the garage door to slide along the track smoothly and easily when opening or closing the garage door.

Our garage door roller replacement service is professional, efficient, and affordable. The A-Team Garage Door Repair, Aurora, has highly skilled technicians that can have your garage door back in good working order within a short period.

Types of Garage Door Rollers

There are several types of garage rollers. You need to get the best value for your money when selecting your rollers. Rollers have a range of lifespans depending on their grade.  Rollers that contain ball bearing outlast those that do not.

Another important difference among garage door rollers is the strength of the roller. Some materials can accommodate heavier garage doors than others.  The best garage door rollers run more smoothly on tracks as they can reduce friction when they slide back and forth. Lower friction levels help to preserve your garage door mechanism for a longer period.

  • Steel garage door rollers

    Steel garage door rollers are highly resistant to wear and tear and can take on heavier loads. These attributes work best for industrial and commercial garage door rollers, which accommodate much larger garage doors and are used more frequently than residential garage doors. The challenge related to steel garage door rollers is that they are louder than their counterparts.

  • Nylon garage door rollers

    These are the latest quality garage door rollers on offer. Nylon garage door rollers have two important contrasting attributes of a garage door roller that make them the best choice for your garage door. They have the lightness of plastic rollers but the strength of steel rollers,  a winning combination that allows them to slide along the garage track more smoothly and quietly in comparison to steel rollers. Nylon garage rollers come with ball bearings that reduce friction between the wheel and rod, meaning your rollers can last longer as wear and tear are minimized. The nylon garage door rollers are a worthwhile quality investment. This roller is quieter and smoother to operate, is durable, can support some heavy loads, is long-lasting with a lifespan of 12 to 20 years, and does not require frequent lubrication.

  • Plastic garage door rollers

    Plastic garage door rollers are the least expensive type of roller but do not last as long as the other two roller options. They can only support lighter garage doors and are limited in the types of garage doors they can be paired with. Plastic garage door rollers are often used alongside light single-panel garage doors.
