When your garage door is damaged, you have a tough decision to make. On the one hand, the scale of a new garage door cost could have anyone rushing to get things repaired as soon as possible. On the other hand, if you keep doing small repairs on a major issue, you could end up paying more in the end, and still have to have a replacement done. Here’s how you can help make the most accurate decision possible.
Common Issues and The Damage Level
So, what are some of the most common issues you’re likely to encounter with your garage door? This ultimately depends, but some of the main problems are issues with the rollers or tracks. Sometimes it runs out of lubrication or something gets caught in the track itself. The sooner you catch this and get service, the less likely you will need to do a full replacement. Another item that you commonly see is a dent, but this is more harmless than you may think. A dent, left unchecked, is a repository for rust or corrosion. Large dents, like when a car hits the door, may also make it impossible to lower or raise the door.
Fixable Issues or Replacement Options
So, how do you determine whether to repair or replace? There are two main factors here: the price and how long the repair will last. If your repair almost costs as much as a replacement, it’s generally best to go with the replacement. If you have an old or heavily damaged door, you may need repeated repair, to the point where a replacement is more cost-effective in the long run.
