Garage door rollers and springs are the two most often replaced parts on a garage door. Installing high quality lifetime rollers will provide years of service which is important since the garage door is the most often used entry door in the home today. More than ever homeowners are entering through the garage door due to convenience which is even a better reason to have good rollers. Installing quality garage door rollers is like buying good tires for your car. The difference here is these rollers are designed to last a lifetime while tires will always need replacing.

Quiet Down Your Garage Door

Let’s face it. Everyone wants a quiet garage door. When garage door rollers start to wear, they will lean to one side and some rollers will make a clicking sound like a train on railroad tracks. This sound will only get louder as the ball bearings wear unevenly from normal usage. Most people don’t realize how loud their garage door has become because it happens slowly over time. Every day it gets a little louder.

New DURA-LIFT Ultra-Life Nylon Garage Door Rollers will quiet down your garage door by up to 75% and provide smooth operation for a lifetime. The heavy duty nylon wheel is super quiet as it rolls down the metal garage door tracks. You will notice the difference immediately after changing out the rollers. The garage door is the largest moving object in your home and having good rollers is very important to ensure it is running at its best everyday.

Lifetime Rated Garage Door Rollers

The quality of the ball bearings used in a garage door roller determines how long the roller will last. The DURA-LIFT Ultra-Life Nylon Garage Door Rollers uses the highest quality ball bearings on the market today and houses them in a protective sealed cover with high quality grease. This ensures a lifetime rating of over 150,000 cycles which is 15x more than your standard garage door roller. Opening and closing the garage door is equal to one cycle.

A typical garage door spring will last 10,000 cycles and these rollers are engineered to last 15x longer. They are a great upgrade for your garage door without spending a lot of money. Rollers on a garage door are the only thing that comes in contact with the track and making sure they are the highest quality is of utmost importance.

Rated for Heavy Garage Doors

The DURA-LIFT Ultra-Life Nylon Garage Door Rollers utilize heavy duty 6200ZZ ball bearings that are reinforced in a dual-wall bearing cage.

Heavy garage doors will have less maintenance problems with the correct rollers installed.

Heavy garage doors are tough on rollers… especially the top roller which travels the farthest on the horizontal track with a load on it. If you have a heavy garage door, get rid of the standard builder grade rollers and upgrade before you find yourself with a door off track due to a broken roller stem. Cheap builder grade rollers are installed on everything from small single car garages all the way up to double car carriage house wood garage doors. Making sure you have good rollers will provide piece of mind as you use the largest moving object in your home on a daily basis.

Prevent Garage Door Off Track

Worn out garage door roller that is leaning

It is important to replace your garage door rollers if they appear to be wobbly or leaning. When they start to wear, the shaft will no longer be perpendicular to the roller wheel therefore it will lean to one side. A leaning roller will walk itself out of the track at the radius because the bushing or bearings are worn out. Homeowners often wonder why their door has come off track and many times it is due to bad garage door rollers.

Another issue we see if the rollers are never changed is they wear down to the point the shaft comes out of the wheel. When this happens, the shaft will slide down the track without a wheel or the door will come off track altogether. Many times when this happens the homeowner is not aware the wheel has come off the roller shaft. Taking time every six months or so to inspect your garage door will ensure you are maintaining the largest moving object in your home the proper way.
