When To Repair Your Garage Door Instead Of Replacing It

 October 24, 2019

The garage is an important aspect of any home. Garages provide invaluable protection and security, but they also offer a level of convenience that is also important and worthwhile. Garages will also add to the value of your home.

However, to get the most value out of your garage, you must have a garage door that is in good working condition. Many homeowners think that they have to replace an older garage door with a new one in order to get a better value. Although, a new garage door can help to increase a listing price for people looking to sell, replacement is not always the best option for others. If you have an older door or ad door that isn’t working as well as it should be, repairing the door may be a better option.

How To Decide If You Should Repair Or Replace Your Garage Door?

Deciding whether to repair or replace your garage door can be a difficult decision. A new garage door will be a big financial investment, whereas simply repairing the door will undoubtedly be easier to fit into a budget. However, there are times when replacing the door is a better choice for the long run. So how do you decide which is the better option for your home?

If you’re having a hard time deciding which is best, start by asking yourself a few simple questions and then contact a reputable and experienced garage door company that can help you make the decision through an honest assessment.

Questions to consider when deciding between repairing or replacing a garage door include:


  • How old is the garage door?
  • What is the condition of the door?
  • How old is the garage door opener?
  • What is the condition of the opener?
  • Is the garage door a safety hazard?
  • How much needs to be repaired on the door?
  • How much can you afford in your budget?

When It’s Better To Repair

 If you have a newer garage door or one that is in overall good condition, you will likely benefit more from repairing the door rather than replacing it. Hiring a trusted garage door repair company will ensure that your garage door is operating effectively and efficiently, while also save you from the cost of a new door. Here a few reasons to call for garage door repair:


  • If the door isn’t opening or closing
  • If the door has a broken spring, loose hardware, or other reparable damages
  • If the door is noisy
  • If the door is off track, imbalanced, or leaning
  • If the door opens or closes sluggishly
  • If the opener works inconsistently
  • If you have a damaged panel

When It’s Better To Replace

 While repairing will surely result in a smaller cost at the moment, some doors might be beyond repair, while others will continue to require repairs. In those cases, the investment of a new door will provide a better value for your budget and your schedule.  Here are a few reasons to look into replacing a garage door:


  • If the garage door hasn’t worked in a long time
  • If the door has major damages
  • If the door is very old
  • If the door doesn’t operate efficiently
