Over time, it can slowly accumulate considerable scratches and even cracks. This damage may not only be visually unsightly but also expose you to a variety of risks. The repair cost of a broken or severely sunken sliding glass door may be higher than the replacement cost, so it may be time to replace it.

2. Door Get Stuck

If dragging your sliding glass door is much harder than it should be, or if it's completely stuck, it's a sign that it needs to be replaced. Sliding glass doors can get stuck for a variety of reasons, including improper installation, track problems, etc.

3. Making Noise

Needless to say, the sliding glass door should not make too much noise when it is opened! If your sliding glass door creaks or makes a loud noise when opening or closing, it may mean that the door rail is blocked. There are two reasons. The first reason may be the noise caused by the accumulation of gravel and dirt on the track, which needs to be cleaned up frequently. The second reason may be the mechanical failure of the sliding glass door itself, which needs to be replaced.

4. Roller Dislocation

When you open the sliding glass door, you feel a bang, and the movement immediately becomes less smooth. This is because the roller is not aligned with the track of the door. This may be caused by roller failure or track distortion and blockage. As mentioned earlier, this may mean simple inspection or cleaning, but it may also require a complete replacement of the sliding glass door.
