DIY (Do It Yourself) - Not Recommended.

  • The first step is to remove the old hinge by unscrewing the screws that hold it in place.
  • Once the old hinge is removed, you’ll need to measure the door and cut a new hinge to size. Be sure to use a sharp knife or saw to make a clean, straight cut.
  • To install the new hinge, simply line it up with the screw holes and screw it into place.
  • Once the new hinge is in place, screw on the door knob and you’re done!
  • With just a few simple steps, you can easily replace the hinges on your doors.

Hire A Professional. (Recommended)

When a door starts to sag or become difficult to open and close, it is usually due to worn out hinges.


Replacing hinges is a relatively simple task, but it is important to choose the right type of hinge for the door and installation surface. In addition, hinges must be properly aligned and installed in order for the door to function smoothly. For these reasons, it is often best to hire a professional when replacing door hinges.


A professional will have the knowledge and experience necessary to select the appropriate hinge and ensure that it is installed correctly.


As a result, you can be confident that your door will operate smoothly and look great for years to come.

Performing a Roller Replacement:

  • First, you will need to purchase the new rollers. Be sure to get the right size for your door.
  • Next, disconnect the opener from the power source. Then, remove the old rollers by unscrewing the brackets that hold them in place.
  • Once the old rollers are out, simply insert the new ones and screw them back into place.
  • Finally, reconnect the opener and test the door to make sure it is working properly.
  • By following these simple steps, you can easily replace the rollers on your garage door yourself.

Hire A Professional. (Recommended)

When it comes time to replace your home’s rollers, you may be tempted to do it yourself in order to save money.

However, there are several reasons why it’s best to leave this task to a professional.

  1. First, a professional will have the right tools and equipment for the job. This includes a ladder, safety gear, and replacement rollers that are the correct size for your door.
  2. Second, a professional will know how to properly disconnect the door from the opener unit. This ensures that the door is properly supported during the replacement process and prevents damage to the opener.
  3. Finally, a professional will have experience dealing with springs, which can be tricky to work with if you’re not familiar with them.


Replacing rollers is a relatively simple task, but it’s important to do it safely and correctly in order to avoid damage to your door or opener unit.


For these reasons, it’s best to leave roller replacement to a professional.
