Garage Door Replacement or Garage Door Repair?
WHEN TO REPAIR vs REPLACE YOUR GARAGE DOOR
You can generally repair your door when it just stops working. The more suddenly the issue arises, the easier it usually is to fix. An expert can step in and diagnose your issue in no time.
If your door feels heavy, it is usually a result of the springs on the door not having enough tension. You’d be surprised when the springs are replaced how brand new the door will feel when it is brought back into balance.
If a panel is scratched and rusting or if it has a dent, it is best to replace the panel sooner rather than later. Weak spots in the door due to damage can result in more issues and safety concerns in the future. Carefully inspect the door. If it is just damaged on one panel, it may make more sense to repair the door by replacing the one section rather than the entire door.
