Repair or replace your garage door panel?
Your sectional roll-up garage door is composed of at least three hinged panels (usually steel, although some are wooden). Occasionally one of the panels may be damaged by a vehicle — crrrrunnnch! Or weather, wind and age may take their toll. If a panel or two of your garage door ends up looking less than its best, what should you do? Is it preferable to opt for a repair, or just replace the whole thing? small dent may lead to cracking, which in turn will permit water penetration and rusting. You might end up having to completely replace a neglected garage door — and that’s the best-case scenario. At worst, you could be putting your home at risk of burglary via the garage entrance or even endangering your family’s well-being.
Last but not least, check whether garage-door replacement is governed by your local building code.
