Replace track or get track cover?

A handy person from Arizona says:
Hello, I have a patio door that has a worn track is there a way to totally replace the track or is the track cover the only way to go? Also if I use the track cover how long can that last with proper maintainance? Thank you, Jim

Dave from SWISCO responded:
You can replace the track, sure. Check out our 80-105. As for life expectancy of a track cover, it really depends on how often its used. It varies in all instances.

I have seen tandem rollers worn clear through to the ball bearings and the stainless bead looked like new.
But tap it with a hammer and you'll have a dent.
