Which Type of Garage Door Rollers Are Best?

Like most items that are regularly used, your garage door is prone to normal wear and tear over time. Rather than replacing your entire garage door when it starts to break down, why not just replace the parts that need it? The team at Neighborhood Garage Door can get you the parts that you need!

What Are Garage Door Rollers? 

While you may have never noticed the garage door rollers, they actually play a significant role in how your garage door operates. They are located on both sides of the door and work to move the door up and down the track. If just one roller malfunctions, your garage door could be thrown off of its track. 

Prior to 2008, most garage doors would come with rollers that were usually made of metal or plastic. While these both seem to be a durable material, rollers made from metal or plastic will typically only last a few years. The best garage door rollers are made from nylon and can come sealed, unsealed, or semi-sealed.

When to Replace the Garage Door Rollers

Since most of us use our garage doors without even realizing we are doing it, we may miss the signs that we need to change our garage door rollers. While squeaking is a good indicator that you should change them, there are also visible signs to look for. These signs include cracking or missing chunks from the roller, run-down rollers, or dirty, grimy rollers that are beyond cleaning.

Rollers secure your garage door to the track, so failing to change out worn-down rollers could result in it coming off the track. Once off, the door could fall, presenting an extremely dangerous situation.

The Best Garage Door Roller

While it’s been mentioned that the best garage door rollers are made of nylon, it’s important to know the other features you should look for. To find that out, it’s beneficial to look at the best rollers which happen to be the Z Bearing Garage Door Rollers.

The Z Bearing Roller

With excellent design and top-notch quality, the Z Bearing roller is not only the longest-lasting roller but one of the strongest. It is often dubbed the “lifetime roller” due to the fact that it will last up to 50,000 garage door cycles, or 70 years, 50 years longer than other garage door rollers. Each roller can sustain about 105 pounds of weight, again, making it far superior to its competitors.

The design of the Z Bearing Roller is also unique. The ball bearings in this roller are enclosed individually helping to protect it from dirt and dust and preventing the roller from wearing down prematurely. Because of the quality of this roller, you may pay more, but will typically receive a longer warranty or guarantee on the product.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
