    Broken Ball-Bearing Rollers 

    Are Damaged Ball-Bearing Rollers Wearing Your Garage Door Down?

    Are you hearing a clicking sound when your garage door goes up and down? Or perhaps, the wheel is moving freely or tilting from side to side when moving. 

    These are all signs of a worn-out bearing. In some cases, the rollers might even break down. The thing about problems arising in garage doors is that they follow a ’cause and effect’ pattern. Either your ball-bearing rollers need to be replaced, or something else might be affecting the rollers. This is why you need expert help to get the job done right.

    Before we jump into how Penguin Garage Doors specialists can help, let’s understand how a ball-bearing roller works:

    Step 1: Ball-bearing rollers are basically small wheels located on each side of the garage door. 

    Step 2: As the rollers move within their tracks, they are responsible for keeping the garage door within its tracks and preventing resistance as the garage door moves up and down. 

    Step 3: Over time and with continued use, the ball bearings inside the wheel can become worn out and might even break.

    Broken rollers can cause several problems for garage doors, such as:

    • The inability to move smoothly
    • Loud grinding noises when the door moves
    • The wheel breaking off, causing the garage door to come out of its tracks and fall when trying to open or close

    In all these scenarios, you must call a professional.

    Why Our Specialists?

    At Penguin Garage Doors, we believe that the solution is only as good as the diagnosis of the problem. Here’s how our process works:

    1. Thorough inspection is key: Our seasoned garage door experts can thoroughly inspect your garage door by doing the following:

    • Looking for signs of poor lubrication
    • Analyzing the track to look for dents, misalignment, gaps, etc.
    • Tackling buildup of dirt, grease, and grime and cleaning it if required
    • Identifying the worn-out status of the rollers

    2. Experts are knowledge-driven: Our experts come with ten years of experience, having dealt with all kinds of garage door problems and ball-bearing rollers are no exception. From plastic to nylon, our specialists can handle all types of rollers.

    3. Hands-on experience: As is the case with any kind of garage door problem, going the DIY route is not a sound decision. While this may seem like a small issue, the actual job can get quite complex and dangerous if you take one detour.

    If you want your garage door to function like it’s brand new, we recommend going for annual maintenance. This will ensure that all the moving parts, including the rollers, are in good working condition and prevent you from costing hundreds of dollars in repair and replacement later on. If you feel there’s an issue with your garage door roller, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Book an appointment with our specialist and prioritize your family’s safety.

    I had my garage door cable rusted and snapped so had to get it replaced. Al was on time, knew what he was talking about and before starting gave an honest opinion that my door could grt damaged because its around 20 years old. But finally got it fixed. Now for sure when I replace my doors in near future, I go to Al @ Penguin Garage Doors. Thank you Al.

    Eldad came in when requested and worked really hard to analyze the problem with our old garage door. This was not your typical easy fix situation. He fixed a few things and managed to get the door working again. Very analytical, smart approach and great craftsmanship. Great job!

    My experience with Al was exceptional. The long lasting garage door issue was solved in a couple of hours by Al. Al even went above and beyond by calling the vendor directly and making sure the fix for the issue was confirmed from a manufacturer end. I highly recommend Al and Penguin Garage for any of your garage door needs!
