When to Replace Garage Door

It’s inconvenient and frustrating when your garage door starts working incorrectly or stops working all together! Perhaps it’s not the time to call—again—for a repair. It may be time for a full replacement. If you need service immediately, get in touch with the team at The Overhead Door Co. of Fort Wayne—or keep reading to learn more about how to tell if you need garage door replacement!

Should You Replace Your Garage Door?

We recommend having a garage door professional come out and inspect your door. An expert will be able to tell you if you need replacement or if a repair will suffice. But there are some signs you can look out for on your own. You may need replacement services if your door if it:

  • Doesn’t close or open all the way
  • Makes a loud grinding noise when operating
  • Allows water to leak in the bottom (when it rains, is the floor of the garage near the door wet?)
  • Won’t open or close with both the wall opener and remote control

If something doesn’t look or sound normal, it probably isn’t! Sometimes a tune-up is enough, but there are times when you need garage door replacement.

Diagnosing the Problem

One of the first steps in determining whether you need to replace your garage door is diagnosing the problem. One of our professionals will do this for you, but in general, common sources of garage door problems are:

  • Springs
  • Opener
  • Seal

Keep in mind that you also may need to replace your door due to old age (unfortunately, garage doors don’t last forever).
