A client from Mountain View, CA, called Palms Garage Doors for a garage door installation. Their garage door was over 20 years old and showed deterioration in its panels and performance. Our technicians went to the site and inspected the garage door. They found that the garage door springs were already old and weak, the panels were not in good condition, and the tracks were so rusted that the door did not go up and down smoothly. Our technicians gave a detailed and honest evaluation of the situation. They quoted a new garage door installation and replacement price and explained the work required. After a couple of weeks, we installed a new garage door, and the client was pleased with its smooth performance.
Garage doors are frequently used as families rush in and out for work, school, soccer games, doctor’s visits, and veterinary appointments. The average American garage door opens and closes approximately 1,500 times per year. That is much work and can inevitably lead to cracked panels, chipped paint, and worn-out parts. If you have a damaged garage door, you know you should do something about it as soon as possible.
Signs You Need a New Garage Door
Your garage door has not been working properly for some time.
Garage door issues that arise suddenly are often repairable if addressed as soon as possible. However, problems that are ignored for an extended period usually necessitate a replacement. Because the door opens and closes so frequently, even seemingly minor issues can cause significant damage over time. The damage will eventually become severe enough that the door will need to be replaced.
Your door is making a lot of noise.
Like any other mechanical device, a garage door can show wear and tear over time. One common issue with worn garage doors is noise. A noisy garage door can be annoying and even signify something is wrong. If you operate your garage door and it makes a squealing noise or shakes too much, you may need to replace it. Your door may have broken hinges and springs, worn-out bearings, or an unequal tension distribution, or it may have reached the end of its useful life and requires replacement.
The cost of maintenance and repair is too high.
While changing out garage door replacement parts is simple, the costs associated with this type of maintenance can add up quickly if your door is constantly in need of repair. If you find yourself with other maintenance problems, there is a good chance that a new garage door would be an economical and efficient solution for you.
Your garage door is not working.
You know it is time to replace your garage door when it starts moving slowly or not at all. Unfortunately, a slow garage door may get even slower over the years and eventually stick on the track.
