glass door. Sunday , February 25th , 2018 - 20:11:06 PM
When it comes to keeping your house in tip-top shape, nothing can be more annoying than a sliding glass door that won′t slide. After all, what′s the purpose of having a beautiful glass door that leads out to a picturesque backyard if the darn thing takes three NFL linebackers to slide it open? So having personally experienced such sliding glass door angst, I decided to write this article to inform you on the number 1 reason why your sliding glass door won′t slide - and what you can do about it!
This article is going to be about replacing an old sliding glass door with a modern Vinyl frame sliding glass door. If you currently have french doors and you want to replace them with sliding doors, or vise versa, future articles will cover that topic.
Once the door is on its side, you can closely examine the wheels and the track. Most commonly, you will find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and the track is also likely very dirty. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle tip pliers. Be careful to pull every last hair out of the wheel bearings. It is wise to be diligent in this step, so you don′t have to make a habit of this process. Once the wheels are completely clean, spray a little bit of penetrating oil into the wheel bearings, spinning the wheel as you apply the oil. (The best choice for the oil is DuPont′s Teflon non-stick dry film lubricant.) It is equally important to clean the track that the wheels rest on. Use damp paper towels to remove the grit and dirt, and then spray the penetrating oil along the track so it is well-applied. Use a clean paper towel to ensure it is evenly applied.
