Sliding Door Repair

 
Sliding Glass (Patio) Doors are an attractive feature in many homes. Unfortunately, the doors will sometimes jam, stick, or just not work quite right.
More on sliding glass doors:

Believe it or not, there are many different "common" rollers for sliding glass doors. Southern Services' staff maintain a parts kit with the most common ones, and there are 16 different varieties. After a quick glance while getting other materials, our staff noted that four of the local home improvement stores do carry some rollers, and average two types per store. The odds of finding a match for your particular door at a home improvement store are, in our experience, low, however, some home owners do take this as an improvement project and get lucky. We also sell rollers after we match them to home owners interested in fixing their door themselves.

A few home owners have inquired about the price of fixing the door, thinking it is too high. First, we encourage home owners to attempt to do a price check. The reality is, most people on Hilton Head Island will not do a sliding door refurbishment. The majority of the risk and liability is in breaking the glass itself. Most construction companies feel their employees would not exercise the proper care, and most handymen do not have the stock or experience to do the job.

We urge any home owner attempting his or her own repair to have a second person, and proceed very carefully. Breaking the glass in sliding glass doors is a very real possibility. However, for the careful home owner, this is a very reasonable task to start with.We are also willing to work on a door a homeowner has attempted a refurbishment on if the door is not operating satisfactorily.
