Do I Need To Repair or Replace My Garage Door?

While it can be alarming if your garage door suddenly stopped working, this often means that the problem is relatively easy to repair. Other problems, such as a “heavy” door, may indicate that there is not enough tension in the mechanism, which may also be a fairly simple fix. In the case of physical damage or wear, garage door repair can sometimes mean replacing a single panel. Garage door replacement may be necessary when a door is rusted, heavily scratched, cracked, or warped. Heavy damage may compromise the opener, the track, springs, or other parts. It is not always obvious when a door is stressed enough to pose a safety hazard. A professional garage door inspection can help assess whether the door is damaged or worn enough to be replaced.
