Vinyl bottom track of screen door has buckled

buddyboyincJuly 28, 2013

My sliding glass door has what appears to be a vinyl bottom track for the screen door, and it has buckled (perhaps due to unusually hot temperatures recently) so that the screen doors cannot be slid in their track.

Does anyone know what brand of door this is, or where I can obtain a replacement bottom track? I can find no identifying marks on the door, so I'm hoping that the track itself is distinctive enough to identify the manufacturer. The track can be pulled out without tools. If a replacement is hard to find, I was thinking of taking it out and trying to use a heat gun to soften it, and then clamping it around a piece of wood that would fit inside it (the track is U-shaped, in an attempt to remold it to its original shape.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

That is not buckled because of heat. That is physical damage.

Can you figure out who made the door? The screen track is a replaceable part.
