garage door replacement

When it comes to a garage door for your home, you know by now that it is one of the most important investments in your property. So when it comes time to decide whether you need to repair or replace, this is just as important as when you initially installed your door. 

Here, we give a few common scenarios that indicate your garage door may just require expert repair. We also lay out a few reasons why you should replace your door as soon as you can. 

Repair: My Garage Door Suddenly Stops Working 

A garage door that suddenly refuses to open or close is one of the most common reasons customers ponder repairing or replacing it. In most cases, the garage door remote needs new batteries. If it’s something deeper than that, such as spring replacement, an expert can perform this job for less than the price of a new door. 

Repair: My Door Sags or Makes a Grinding Noise

The second most common reason for needing garage door repair is if it makes noises, seems heavy, or sags to one side. If your door seems heavy or makes a grinding noise, you might just need to replace your springs, rollers, or tracks. Many of these issues are inexpensively fixed by a garage door repair expert. 

Repair: A Single Panel is Broken

Having a broken garage door panel can be an awful feeling, especially if you’re on a street with other beautiful homes and yours stands out for this reason. Luckily, all is not lost, and a single panel is another relatively cost-effective fix. Most manufacturers sell single-panel replacements that your garage door expert should handle with ease. 

Replace: My Garage Door is Old and Worn

If your garage door hasn’t worked for a while, it is likely because you allowed a minor problem to snowball over the course of several years. In this case, we typically recommend full replacement. This is also the case if your door is more than 15-20 years old. Garage door manufacturers take pride in the longevity of their openers and moving parts, but after daily wear and tear, even the highest quality parts break down over time.
