Recognizing When It’s Time for a New Garage Door

Sometimes, a repair just won’t cut it. Here are some telltale signs that indicate a replacement might be the better option:

  • Safety Concerns
  • Age and Appearance
  • Weather Damage
  • Rising Energy Bills
  • Wood Rot in Wooden Doors

If you are experiencing any of the issues above, it’s time to seriously consider replacing your garage door.

When Repairs Make More Sense

The good news is that not all issues require a full replacement. Here are instances where a repair might be the best route:

  • Sagging Door: This usually indicates a balance issue, which can often be corrected by adjusting or replacing the springs.
  • Sudden Breakdowns: Many times, these can be resolved with simple fixes like replacing remote batteries or calling a professional for a more thorough diagnosis.
  • Budget Constraints: If a new door isn’t in your budget, repairing your existing one could be a cost-effective solution.
  • Minor Damage or Dents: If the damage is limited to a panel or two, replacements are often possible without needing a full door replacement.
  • Single Panel Damage: Replacing one damaged panel is usually straightforward and more cost-effective than a full door replacement.
  • Discoloration: A fresh coat of paint can rejuvenate a discolored door.
  • Dents: Minor dents can often be repaired, preserving the appearance and functionality of your door.
