Alum-A-Lub is the Best Lubricant for Sliding Screen Door Tracks

Sliding screen doors look splendid and keep the interior bug-free and dust-free as well. But they are so annoying
when we have difficulties to slide them smoothly. Being in this business for over 30 years we often hear from
our customers regarding this issue. Today we will try to sort out the problem.

Why Sliding Door Malfunctions??

There are so many issues that make door prone to coming off. Lack of maintenance is the major thing. We always
should clean the track, make sure the screws and other parts are assembled tight.

Rollers are the main part
responsible for stuck door. Try adjusting the roller assemblies, most of the time they wear down. If rollers
are not working anymore replace them instead replacing the whole screen door.

If all the above stuffs are verified then lubrication is they next thing to be fixed..

After troubleshooting every aspects above if you see the screen door is not moving smoothly its because of lubrication. Most of the time the track and the wheel bearing gets dry.

Now when it comes to lubricate screen door track we get confused which lubricant should be used. So many options are there to choose from e,g; WD40, Silicone Spray, Grease etc. All those variation makes us really confused which should we go with.


WD40 comes into our mind most of the time to fix stuck doors. But the reality is WD40 is not a lubricant, it’s very good for cleaning metal parts or tools and protecting from rust as well. Besides WD40 attracts dust also which will leave you in a worse condition.

White lithium grease is also a good option for stubborn track, it’s also comes in spray can like WD40 . Silicone lubricants are also very popular for lubricating door tracks as it doesn’t attracts dirt’s. In my experience it also becomes an ugly black color over time.
