Do I Need to Repair or Replace My Garage Door?

repair or replace garage doorIf you have a commercial or residential garage door that’s been on the fritz for a while, you might be considering replacing it with a brand new garage door from Overhead Door. Even though garage doors can be easily repaired and back in working order with the help of a professional, there are some instances where replacing your garage door entirely might be more beneficial to a business owner or homeowner. So, how do you know when it’s time to replace your garage door? 

Understanding Common Garage Door Repairs

When deciding whether it’s necessary to replace your garage door, you should have a strong understanding of what is considered to be a typical garage door repair. Common garage door repairs may happen once or twice a year. Still, they shouldn’t impose on your ability to freely enter and exit your commercial or residential garage regularly. Common garage door repairs can include bent or damaged tracks, garage doors coming off the track, replacing weather strips, and replacing hinges or cables. 

Replace Your Garage Door If Repairs Are Becoming Routine

You’ll want to consider outright replacing your residential or commercial garage door if your repairs are becoming a routine. Frequent repairs can add up for business owners and homeowners, especially if they occur regularly. Ultimately, it may become more cost-effective to outright replace your garage door rather than continuing to make repairs on it for an indefinite period. Additionally, new commercial and residential garage doors come packed with modern features that may eliminate the need for common garage door repairs that you’ve been dealing with. 

Your Garage Door is Aged and Lacking Safety Features

The average lifespan of a garage door is approximately 15 years, although most homeowners and business owners will begin to notice failures with their garage door sooner than that. If your garage door is aged and lacks safety features, it’s time to consider replacing it with a new model. Overhead Door carries a wide range of collections to choose from, made from your choice of materials with new features that can help your garage door with energy efficiency and even safety.
