When to Replace Rather Than Buy a Garage Door

If you have a garage door that is damaged, you are presented with two possible options. One option is to replace your garage door, and the other option is to repair the garage door. There are different situations which will determine whether you should replace or repair your garage door. While repairing a garage door might seem like the less expensive option, it can actually be more expensive than replacing your garage door in many situations.

If you have a garage door that is heavily damaged, the repairs required to have the garage function as if it was new would be just as expensive, if not more expensive than having a new garage door replace the old one. It is important to consult a local garage door company and ask them for a quote to repair your garage door. Many companies will provide quotes for free, and they can save you quite a great amount of money. If your garage door has multiple problems with it, then it will likely cost more to repair than it will to repair it. This is partly due to the materials, but more due to the cost of labor that will be required to fix the garage door.

There are a few problems that are extremely difficult to repair, and will almost always require a replacement garage door. These problems include, but are not limited to, water damage, rust, worn out tracks and rollers, or sagging parts of the garage door. These problems can sometimes be impossible to repair, so a replacement garage door will be required.

If you have one of the aforementioned problems, or if you have multiple small problems, it is most likely a good idea to have your garage door replaced instead of having it repaired. If you arenít sure, contact a local garage door company.
