Garage Door panel replacement cost considerations

If you’ve damaged your garage door, there are a few factors that influence whether you will need to replace the door or simply fix the panels. Before jumping into repairs, the damage should always be inspected by a professional from GC Garage Door who can help you determine which course  is right for you.

Age of the garage door

If you have an older garage door, replacement parts may be hard to find and very costly. If you’ve damaged a panel on an older garage door, talk to an expert to figure out if it’s more cost-effective to replace a panel or get a whole new door now. If the door will need to be replaced in a few years, it may be worth skipping a potentially costly short-term repair panel repair and upgrading the door instead.

How messed up is the garage door

If damage to your newer garage door is light and only affecting one panel, it’s likely the perfect candidate for panel replacement, which will save you the cost of having to buy a whole door. However, if two or three panels are messed up, replacing those panels may exceed the cost of installing a new door. A maintenance technician will help you determine which option is best for your door.

Beauty or Function

Over time, exposure to the sun and other weather elements will cause your door to fade or the color to change. It will likely be a challenging to find the exact color match for your replacement garage sections.  (No one will likely notice except you 🙂 If you want a uniform paint color, it’s important to factor the potential cost of repainting the garage door into your budget as well.
