Garage Door Repair Services: Repair or Replace Your Garage Door
No one wants to make an unnecessary investment in their home, such as purchasing a new appliance — not when a good repair is the best alternative over full replacement. Your garage door is no different. I want to share with you our garage door repair services.
While a new garage door holds the power to transform the look and feel of your home and its curb appeal, you can often avoid the investment of a new model with a residential garage door repair.
As you make your decision between garage door repair or replacing, here are a few things to consider:
Wear and tear on your Garage Door
Your garage door can completely transform the exterior of your home, enhancing curb appeal and complementing the rest of your home’s architecture.
When wear and tear start to show up on your garage door it takes away from the beauty of your home. Needing a single garage door panel repair is an example of a time when you should choose home garage door repair over a full replacement unless you need springs or other mechanical parts replaced.
But if multiple panels begin to fade or rust, or if multiple panels need replacing, that may be a good sign you should consider replacing your garage door completely.
We would recommend weighing the cost of a proper repair vs a complete replacement. If the costs are similar then we would strongly recommend a garage door replacement.
If you have a wood model, look for warping and cracking. These are tell-tale signs you should consider a garage door replacement. The age of your garage door should play a part in your decision to replace it.
If it’s only five years old, you should be able to go with a residential garage door repair. If your garage door is more than 15 years old, it might be time to shop for a replacement. This is when a trained professional is most valuable.
A Damaged Garage Door
Damage is different than wear and tear in that it occurs due to a specific incident, such as a collision with a vehicle, high winds, or user negligence.
A key contributor to damage is one family
member locking the door and another hitting the button for the garage door opener. This can cause significant damage to the top section of your garage door.
A garage door includes many different parts that allow it to operate seamlessly, and significant damage to these parts can make your door unsafe — with the cost to repair exceeds the cost to replace.
Be sure to review your insurance options if you experience garage door damage. Homeowner’s or car insurance may cover a portion of the garage door repair or replacement cost, depending on the nature of your damage and how it occurred.
Your Garage Door in Operation
Has your garage door completely stopped working altogether? This could be any number of issues.
If it was working fine yesterday but has stopped operating today, the fix may be straightforward and simple. However, if your garage door has been struggling for some time and its non-operation feels like the culmination of a long-term problem, the issues may be more significant — and one that necessitates a full replacement.
However, if the sections are not separating at the seams or rotting/rusting and the issues are more mechanical. An extensive garage door repair would be more effective than a door replacement in some instances.
