Which Garage Door Rollers Should You Use?
Some different materials for garage door rollers include plastic, steel and nylon. All garage door rollers have some forms of steel stems with wheels at each end. The wheels’ properties are what set these rollers apart. These wheels are made of different materials. Some have ball bearings, which only need lubrication once a year and are high-quality, while rollers that don’t have ball bearings are lower-quality and they tend to deteriorate earlier on. If your garage door roller have ball bearings, you’ll be able to see them easily. You’ll want to consider replacing the wheels of your garage doors if they’re made of plastic, because they tend to break down rather easily. Over time, wheels deteriorating will cause more issues for your garage doors. Whiles steel wheels are durable, they can cause more damage and issues for a garage door track.
