Thermal Panels For Sliding Glass Doors - When it comes to maintaining your home in tip-top condition, nothing can be more annoying than a sliding glass door that will not slide.
The number 1 reason why your sliding glass door will not side is because too much dirt and debris have clogged up the track of your door panel and the wheels. This is not a difficult fix, but it's best if you have another person present to assist you because sliding glass doors are rather heavy.
You'll be able to carefully examine the wheels and the track when the door is on its side. Mostly, you'll find the wheels are filled with soot and debris, and the path can also be probably very dirty. Needle tip and use compressed air pliers to clean the wheels. Be careful to pull every last hair out from the wheel bearings.
While you're at it, clean up all the "mating-borders" of the door. This really is where the sliding door and some other surface of the door frame meet. A general rule of thumb is always to simply wipe down anything that seems dirty. Don't forget, even if the dirt is not always on the path itself, it can eventually fall to the track causing your door to require another wipe down.
