When is it time to replace a garage door? There's no single answer to that question. Sometimes damage to a door can be fixed with a simple panel replacement. You can also stave off repairs on your garage door by practicing smart preventative techniques, such as cleaning and inspecting the door yearly.
Damage to your residential garage door can happen in an instant. You may start pulling out of your garage before the door has finished opening, or a child could accidentally throw a baseball into the door, denting a panel. If the damage is minimal, you may consider letting the panel remain damaged without doing anything. Unfortunately, the damage is likely to worsen with time, and a small problem could turn into a big one before you know it.
