Garage Door Replacement or Garage Door Repair?
WHEN TO REPLACE vs REPAIR YOUR GARAGE DOOR
The most common reason for replacing the garage door is cosmetic. If you have a metal door which has rusted panels, it is scratched, is old and worn, and you can’t get it to sit right, it’s probably worth spending the money to replace it. The same goes for wooden garage doors which can become warped, damaged or stressed. If paint cannot do the trick to revamp your door, it may be time to buy a replacement.
Damaged doors have serious safety risks around the home. Physical damage from high winds, wear and tear, vehicle contact, or other damage, you more than likely need to have it replaced. If there is physical damage to the door, it is likely the damage extends to the tracks, springs, and the door opening system itself. In some cases, a malfunctioning door due to damage can cause serious injury, so it is best to have the damaged good removed and put in their place a fully functional system.
