Garage door rollers connect a garage door to the door tracks. The primary function of garage door rollers is facilitating the motion of the garage door.

However, as with any garage part, they have a certain lifespan, and will need to be changed after a while if you want seamless functionality.

Here are a few signs that may mean that you need to place your garage door’s rollers:

Worn Out Rollers

Perhaps the easiest way of knowing whether it’s time to replace garage door rollers is by looking at them. Are they unaligned? Unhinged? Do they look run down? Are there chunks of nylon or rubber missing? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you should consider replacing the rollers.

In some cases, poorly maintained rollers cause the door to become crooked. If this happens, it’s possible that your garage door may become jammed, or jump out of the rails.

Violent Jittering

As mentioned earlier, the main function of these rollers is to enable the garage door to move up and down smoothly. If you start noticing changes in this function, the rollers may be faulty.

It is normal for rollers to go through wear and tear over the years. But if they begin to shake violently every time the garage door is operated, it may be high time you get them changed.

Loud, Unsettling Noises

This is something that accompanies the violent jittering. If you notice your garage door making increasingly violent noises every time it’s activated, start looking into a new set of rollers.

This could be a sign that your rollers have become rusted, or are in need of lubrication. And will not only be a nuisance to deal with, but will also compromise the smooth operation of the garage door.

Of course, measures can be taken to prolong the life of your garage parts. You can start by performing a regular inspection of your garage parts, and ensuring that they are well-oiled to prevent rusting. You should check for obvious signs of damage such as cracks in the rollers.
