When a sliding screen door starts giving you problems sliding, it might be time for repair. We come out check it to see is the frame is in good condition, then we check the roller set to see if it still turns good. All four rollers should spin good and adjust up and down. If you use a screw driver you should be able to raise and lower each wheel.
If the doors frame is good and straight we should be able to rescreen it,our different meshes are, regular fiberglass for simple insect protection,then we carry the pet screen which is for dogs cats and kids. This pet proof mesh is 7 times stronger then the regular screen mesh and also last just as long.
I do a lot of screen door work in Agoura Hills and see a lot of problems with screen. The most common of all is screen doors not adjusted properly. A screendoor usually needs repair after it’s been neglected for so long. If you catch it in time, not only will you not have bigger problems in the future but it will slide very good for a long time.
- clean your tracks
- lubricate tracks
- adjust rollers
clean your top and bottom tracks and channel then lube them.. All porch doors frames have adjustment holes and they are there for you to raise the aluminum frame and balance it.. The trick is to do it not to tight and not too loose. Make sure the screen slides smooth but not to the point where it rocks back and forth.
Sliding screen doors are made to slide smooth across you tracks without having to push or pull them. The first thing that will need adjusting is the rollers on the top of the screen door frame and on the bottom. You are going to need a fillips screw driver for raising and lowering the roller up or down. Some are made out of plastic and others are metal ball bearing, these slide the best and will usually be able to work when trying to fix them.
Make sure to use the encasement where the lock is to guide you in leveling it properly, the right and left rollers will tilt the patio door from one side to the other until it is as straight as can be. If you detect other problems like a bent, cracked or warped frame this too will cause it to not caught. One of the most common problems that happens to a sliding screen doors is someone walking through it and bending and breaking it, outside of dogs, cats and kids this is one of the reasons we are in business.
