When should you know that your garage door panel needs a replacement or a repair?

Your roll-up garage door is of three hinged panels that are usually of steel or wooden. One of these panels might get damaged due to a vehicle or of age or wind. If the panel of your home’s garage ends up looking less than perfect, you might be wondering what should be done, i.e. just repairing it or changing up the whole thing. We are here to let you know the nitty-gritty of it.

1.How the damage has been done

The main factor is the cause of the damage. There can be cosmetic blemishes because of the normal wear and tear like dents, scratches, cracks, rust patches, or wraps. It is essential to consult with a professional in order to determine the seriousness and to also know if the damage is done only to one panel.  If the damage is done only to one panel, your garage door panel’s repair can be done with paint, wood filler or even a strut.

In another criterion, if the door was crashed by a car or if someone has used the automatic opener when the door was locked or if your garage was hit by an earthquake or hurricane, the damage might be more effective than the single individual panel. This can threaten the safety of anyone who is using the garage. Main mechanisms like the track, struts, opener or springs must have been compromised, even if there is no apparent damage. One of the major indications of the damage is that there will be difficulty in closing the door even if you can normally open it.

2.The age of the door

The decision to either do a garage door operator repair or to replace it can partly depend on the age of your door. It has been made a notion that the life expectancy of a garage door is 20 to 25 years. If your garage door is only 10 years old, you can just repair the panel. The decision making factor can be the garage door safety and also the energy-efficiency which has been revised in the recent years, since there are many new features like pinch-resistant doors, electronic eye sensor, high-quality insulation, automatic reversing mechanism, etc. If you are planning to sell, a full replacement of the garage door can be better for your home’s curb appeal.

3.Safety measures

Safety measures should be taken by everyone. You should not continue to open or close your garage if there is garage door motor repair required. Even a minimal garage door panel repair can become very serious if there is no care taken. The worst scenario can be that you can be keeping your home at risk of theft through the garage entrance which might endanger your family’s well being.
