3 Clues That It’s Time For A Total Garage Door Replacement

If you have a garage, you will want to make sure that you are aware of the signs of trouble that would cause you to need a full garage door replacement. Whether the garage door system that is in place is the original or it has simply been there for many years, you will want to continue reading. Call for an estimate for garage door replacement services should you notice any of the following:

The Panels Are Starting To Come Out

You might start to notice that one or more of the panels that make up the garage door are in rough shape. They might start popping out or becoming bent out of shape. If the design of the door is no longer a central feature because of how bad the door looks, it is probably time to have it replaced with a brand-new one. This would be a good time to look at the different styles of garage doors, especially if you want something that is a little more modern.

There are Gaps Around The Closed Garage Door

Don't make the mistake of closing the garage door and then walking away without occasionally inspecting the perimeter of the door. You will want to look for any gaps that should not be there, such as along the sides or along the bottom where the door meets the concrete. If there are gaps, it could be that the door system is very old and starting to get bent out of shape. You will need to call for an inspection of your garage door if you would like to determine whether it needs to be replaced.

There's Little Energy Efficiency

If the inside of your garage is super cold in the winter and extra hot during the summer because the old garage door is no longer energy efficient, you are going to want to think about having it replaced. You will want to get the new garage door installed as soon as possible so the temperature inside the garage can be easily controlled.

You can always consult with a couple of different contractors about the replacement of your garage doors. You will want to see what each contractor has to say about why you should get the replacement, what your replacement options are, when they can get the work done, and how much they are going to charge. Make sure that the estimate is given to you in writing and that it includes parts and labor, as well as any warranty details.
