Why Sliding Doors Fail

A sliding glass door failing can be a frustrating occurrence. If you live in Central or South Florida you probably enjoy being able to access the great outdoors quickly and easily. Complete gets calls from customers all the time who have issues with their sliding doors. There is no one solution to sliding glass door repair as there are multiple reasons why sliding doors fail and we usually have to come investigate before we can correct the problem. Learn more about the common problems that result in the failure of sliding glass doors and how we fix them.

Hair in Bearings

It is often surprising the stuff that gets in the bearings of your sliding doors. Pet owners often experience sliding doors that won’t open as a result of hair getting caught in the bearings. This isn’t generally an overnight occurrence, it happens over time. By removing the sliding door from the track we are able to carefully remove the hair from the bearings as its buildup has caused them to stop rolling. If they need to be replaced we can do that too and will have you accessing the outdoors again in no time.

Wrong Lube

We often see sliding doors that malfunction as a result of the wrong lube being used in the bearings. Proper lubrication is the reason bearings roll and is essential for reliable operation. A bearing that has the wrong lube in it will fail and produces undesirable friction that generates excessive heat, metal fatigue and wear.

Grease Escapes from Bearings

The life expectancy of grease for rolling bearings will rise or fall depending on various factors. Bearings must be relubricated to compensate for external factors such as temperature, speed, load, bearing arrangement and type. Who thought there was so much science behind a sliding door?!

Rollers Fail

The rollers on the door are typically made of plastic and are connected to a metal housing. After removing sliding doors and inspecting the rollers we usually find that the rollers are so badly corroded that they won’t even move any more. Sometimes they are completely broken and a broken wheel won’t very well turn now will it? Roller failure is usually a quick and easy fix (for us) and we can have the door sliding properly again.

Alignment Problems

Sliding doors can also fall out of alignment and must be adjusted to ensure a proper roll. This can be caused by every day wear and tear, bad installation, or loose screws. Whatever the problem Complete will diagnosis it for you and repair it in a timely manner.

Statistics on Crime- Prevent Burglary with Complete

According to the FBI home-burglaries are the most common threat to our homes occurring every 13 seconds in the United States. Over 2,000,000 homes will be burglarized this year that will likely result in property loss of $1,000 or more without including the damage from the vandalism. Most of these vandals are using simple tools to get into your home including screwdrivers, pliers, pries bars, and small hammers. You can greatly reduce your risk of getting robbed by these criminals with securing your entry points with the proper window and door locking mechanisms that are designed to keep your valuables inside and criminals outside.

Your Home’s Entry Points

Most homes only have two options for entering: doors and windows. Securing your front door is a wise place to secure your home as most break-ins occur here. Installing a pick-resistant deadbolt lock and having an outdoor entry light are great ways to protect your home from this highly popular area. Avoid purchasing hollow-core doors for your entrances that provide access from the outdoors as these can be easily kicked in. Any gaps along the door frames provide leverage for removing the door from its frame and should be avoided.

Sliding Glass Door Break-Ins

The first floor of your home is also a highly popular location as most burglars avoid climbing to break-in to a home. A sliding glass door is a highly sought after target as most burglars know that this type of door is usually only secured by a latch. These doors can also be lifted off of their tracks and can be moved silently allowing for quick access to a home and its valuables. Complete helps keep its customers safe by providing them with vertical bolts and metal track blockers and locks that prevent sliding door movement. A locked sliding glass door alone won’t prevent a robber from breaking in, homeowners and renters need to take extra precautions to safeguard their homes. Vertical bolts and metal track blockers are the smart way to stop the door from sliding and opening.

Other Entry Points

Windows

One of the most common entry points for burglars is a ground level window at the rear of the home. Windows locks are inexpensive and are an effective way of keeping out burglars who are trying to get into your home this way.

Garage Doors

Garage doors are also a frequent entry point and should be secured with a deadbolt lock.

Cheap Locks

Because simple locks can be picked by nearly any amateur burglar, it is important to invest in deadbolt locks. Complete can install and secure your home with new locks that keep your family safe and maintain your peace-of-mind.

For more information on the products and services we offer to help you secure your home and your family, contact Complete today.
