Garage Door Panel Replacement
A garage door is made up of multiple panels that are hinged together. The garage door panel can become damaged, and should this happen, it can be replaced instead of the entire door being changed. Single garage door panels can be damaged in a wide variety of ways. These ways include chipping and cracking, as well as water damage if not treated properly. Should this occur, you can acquire replacement panels for either panel replacement or repair.
A garage door is a very important part of the majority of households. It not only makes your life convenient by allowing you to enter and leave your home easily but also provides a barrier of safety for your motor vehicle. Over and above this, a garage door adds to the property’s value and aesthetic element as a whole. When they get damaged, it is then crucial to call in an expert to do a repair job to the panels.
Issues with Garage Door Panels
Garage door panels tend to become damaged over time. Often, broken panels can cause undue stress. There is, however, an incorrect perception that should a panel be damaged, the entire garage door must be replaced. The beauty of a garage door panel is that you can choose to replace just the damaged panel instead of the entire door. This much more cost-effective as replacing the whole garage door would prove to be much more costly.
There are many scenarios that may occur where you may need to replace your garage door panels. Some of these scenarios include panels that have:
- Not aged well
- Outdated or discontinued garage door panels
- Bent panels
- Dented panels
Old panels may begin to creak and make other noises. Should this occur, you should consider changing the panel. Discontinued garage doors also pose a problem, as they may no longer manufacture the panels which your garage door uses. In this case, one should consider the replacement of the panels so as to avoid future issues.
Panel Replacement VS. Garage Door Replacement
Often when damage occurs to the garage door, it is natural to think of replacing the entire garage door. When damage does occur, it is important to assess the damage and determine whether it is to the whole door or just a singular panel.
When considering the replacement of a garage door panel or garage door, there are three important factors to consider. These factors for consideration are the garage door’s age, the number of damaged panels, and the aesthetic damage on the door.
Should a garage door be extremely old and damaged, the chances are that the entire door may need to be replaced. In this case, replacing one panel may just be a short-term fix. This is usually going to be the case unless you previously replaced the other panels on the garage door.
When it comes to the number of damaged panels, it is important to determine how many of the panels need replacing. Should a minimal number of the panels be damaged, then it would be a wiser decision to replace just those specific panels, which is much cheaper than replacing the entire door. However, if the vast majority of panels are damaged in any way, it may just be a better decision to replace the entire garage door.
The final factor is considering the aesthetic damage to the door. When considering how damaged a door is, one might only notice damage such as scratches or chipping. It is important to note whether a panel is bent or dented as well. Some panels may only look scratched, and you may not replace them only to find out that once a new panel has been installed, the old panel looks out of place and damaged.
