Today, most residential garage doors are comprised of panels or sections. When one of these sections is dented or out of alignment, it can have serious implications on the function of your door’s movement, not to mention unappealing.
Whether your son or daughter backed into the door, a rock flew out from your lawn mower, or time and weather has not been kind to your door, we’ve just about heard it all! Here is everything you need to know about replacing your panels.
Matching Your Panel
Garage Door section and panel replacement is a task that is difficult for the regular homeowner for many reasons. First, the same panel or section from the same manufacturer must be used to make the door fit and look right on the outside.
Even minor differences in door panels can make the section look bad when the job is complete. So you must find out who made your door and then locate the same panel from a local provider. Garage door panels are large, bulky and do not ship easily or inexpensively. They are easily damaged when transported and most customers do not have a 16 foot long truck bed to move panels to their homes.
We recommend you have us do the panel replacement. We know the manufacturers out there and have connections to their distributors and manufacturers. Also remember that replacing a single panel on a door might seem OK, but when you look at the front of the door, you will have three faded panels and one brand new. It is likely you will have to paint the entire front of door. This is not hard, but it is tedious.
Replacing garage door sections can be dangerous if you do not know what you are doing, especially if you are replacing a bottom section where the cables are attached to the springs at the top of the door. All of the cable tension must be gone and when you do this you need to reset the springs.
All jobs best performed by a certified garage door technician. Never remove bolts from a garage door that you do not understand or that are painted red.
We have actually gone to more than a few homes where there is blood on the floor from homeowners working on the doors themselves. There is a lot of energy stored in the springs on your door, so if you are one such brave-hearted handyman, tread carefully and never feel too shy or proud to give us a call!
