Nylon or Steel Rollers? 

In addition to finding rollers that match your garage door in size, you will have to decide whether to get rollers made out of nylon or steel. Both materials are used for residential and commercial garage doors, but they vary in factors such as longevity and noise level. Generally, the more ball bearings a roller has, the less noise it will make when you open and close the garage door. While that might seem like a minor detail, it is an essential consideration if the garage door is located under the main floor or next to a room where the excess noise may be a problem. Although having more ball bearings on a roller makes the garage door quieter, it also increases its price. However, keep in mind that most rollers last 15-20 years. To have a garage door that does not annoy you and your family, you may decide it is worth the investment to get rollers of a higher quality to start with. 

Nylon garage door rollers will last anywhere from 12-20 years. Nylon rollers have about 13 ball bearings, which allows them to run smoothly and quietly for awhile. Nylon rollers do not have to be lubricated, which reduces the likelihood of them making excess noise. Steel garage door rollers may last even longer than nylon garage door rollers, but they also make more noise. Steel rollers are ideal for residential garage doors where noise will not be an issue, and they can also be used successfully with commercial garage doors. 

Does Your Garage Door Need New Rollers? 

When you own your house, you will use the garage door hundreds, if not thousands, of times. The rollers are one part of the garage door that is used heavily. Therefore, they can break or wear out and need the evaluation of a technician who performs garage door repairs in Torrance. You should always hire a professional to assess and fix your garage door’s problems, but before help arrives, you can do some troubleshooting on your own. You can look for signs that your Torrance garage doors need new rollers, including excessive vibration or shaking when you open the garage door. If the door is rattling and making noise, the rollers may be worn out and need to be changed. The door may also become misaligned, which will happen more frequently as the rollers become worn out. The garage door may also fall off its hinges regularly, which is another sign that the door’s rollers should be inspected at the least and changed if needed. The garage door may also make more noise than usual. If your garage door seems to be making a racket, the rollers may have developed rust. They will need to be lubricated or replaced. 

Precision Door Service of Torrance stocks a variety of garage door rollers to fit garage doors from all major manufacturers. Garage door rollers support and guide your garage door as it opens and closes, keeping it on the track.

Cables

Cables

Attached to your door’s springs are the garage door cables, which keep your garage door operating smoothly and safely. Combined with springs, garage door cables control the tension and motion of the door. Precision Door Service sells top quality, multi-strand cables that resist fraying in all types of weather to ensure safe and smooth operation of your garage door.

 What are Cables? 

The cables on your garage door work hard behind the scenes to make sure your garage door opens and closes properly. The cables are one of the most hardworking components of your garage door, and when they break, your garage door can be negatively affected. The cables should work smoothly and quietly like a reliable motor. The cables also work hand-in-hand with the garage door springs, so if the cables break the springs will not be able to perform their job, either. If you suspect that the garage door cables are broken, it is best to contact a technician to take a look at your garage door, since the symptoms of broken springs and cables can be difficult to distinguish. 

 Types of Garage Door Cables 

Every garage door has several kinds of cables that help it function. A garage door has lifting cables of several varieties. The lifting cables are attached to pulleys that help open the garage door. There is usually one cable for lifting on each side of the garage door. The cables work together to help properly raise and lower the door. If the cables break, they will fail to open or close the door, leading to dangerous consequences. The other kind of cables your garage door uses is safety cables. The safety cables help the lifting cables move the garage door safely and properly. The safety cables reach from the garage door’s frame through the extension spring to the screw hook that holds the extension spring in place. The safety cables are designed to keep the garage door from suddenly opening or closing quickly, which can cause serious injury or even death to people standing near the garage door. The safety cables should be kept in good working condition so that they do not cause problems when they are needed. If the power in your house goes out and you cannot use the garage door opener to open the garage door, you can still pull down on the emergency release cable to disconnect the garage door motor and open the door manually.

My garage door went off track this morning. Top rollers popped off tracks and made a loud bang noise that shook the whole house. I needed to leave for work and couldn't get my car out. I called Precision and Sergio M. came out immediately!! He performed a full rebuild and was able to make it work on time. My garage door works quieter and smoother than before. I appreciate Sergios good really. Really hard working man!! Highly recommend.
