Why Replace Your Garage Door?

Your garage door plays a crucial role in your home’s aesthetic beauty and functionality. Fading appearances, wear and tear and operational and safety issues are many reasons homeowners decide it is time to replace their garage door. Learn more about when to repair or replace your garage door from our experts at Garage Door Specialists! 

Deteriorating Appearance 

Your garage door takes up a significant portion of the face of your home. For this reason, a beautiful, cared-for garage door greatly enhances a home’s curb appeal and resale value. 

If your garage door could use a spruce-up, it’s over 10 years old or you’re looking for an easy way to dramatically increase the resale value of your home, it could be time to replace your garage door. 

Severe Damage

The older your garage door, the more it suffers from general wear and tear — whether it’s a dent from a hockey puck, a scrape from a car or bicycle or warped panels.

If your garage door has suffered a severe impact and multiple bent panels or structural damage prevents your garage door from opening, it may be time to replace it.

Operational Issues

Your garage door comprises several parts that must work in harmony to operate at peak efficiency. Occasionally, your garage door may experience operational issues with broken components. For example, your door may sag due to problems with torsion springs or it might not open or close properly because of bent tracks or a dead operator battery. 

Depending on the extent of the operational issue, sometimes you can repair the component instead of replacing the garage door altogether. While you might able to replace garage door springs or openers, if the issue is ongoing, it may be time to replace your garage door entirely. 

Safety or Security Concerns

In addition to all of its functional components, your garage door is heavy. If your automatic sensors don’t trigger your garage door to stop closing when a pet or child enters its sensor field, the issue could quickly turn dangerous. 

We recommend having one of our repair technicians thoroughly inspect your garage door to determine the cause of the problem. We’ll diagnose whether a repair will fix the issue or if a total garage door replacement is best.
