Did you know that you can get individual sections of your garage door replaced without having to replace the entire garage door if addressed promptly?
The garage door is used by all family members and needs to be maintained to remain safe. It’s common for your garage door to experience natural wear and tear over time as well as the odd dent. When this occurs, you should seek prompt repairs to help extend the life of your garage door and potentially reduce the need for a complete replacement.
Section replacements allow homeowners to maintain the garage over time rather than let it fall into disrepair and become unsafe. While wear and tear situations occur, especially with wood doors, most of the time, the section replacement is needed due to damage to the door done by minor accidents like hitting the door with a car or dents from over the years from the odd backyard baseball game.
Homeowners also choose this option when selling their homes to help raise curb appeal. To prevent this situation from occurring, you need to know the signs of damage. When you see them, make sure to call Overhead Door Company of Portland immediately so we can help resolve the issue and demonstrate the benefits of garage door panel replacement.
Signs You Need Garage Door Panel Replacement
Some of the most common signs that you have garage door panels that need replacement are cosmetic:
- They are cracked or warped.
- They are bent or distorted.
- They are discolored or faded.
Dented, cracked, or bent panels can significantly affect the garage door’s ability to do its job or operate safely. Your door may be unable to operate, but even if it can, the damaged panel can put additional stress on the other panels leading to the need for a full door replacement.
That’s why it’s essential to seek prompt repairs whenever you notice an issue with your garage door. Garage doors are the largest moving part of your home, and all aspects need to work in harmony to sustain the lifespan and safety of the door. When an essential component, like one or multiple panels, needs repair, you can easily find yourself dealing with more extensive and expensive damage.
