One of the most common factors in having a noisy garage door is the roller itself. Many of the older doors come equipped with steel rollers. The newest innovation is the nylon roller. By the addition of the nylon roller it allows a softer rotation on the tracks. It makes a huge difference! We advise many customers to switch from the old style metal rollers to the nylon rollers because overall it offers a sleeker garage door. The additional quietness is a very good addition to any door.
