What to do if your garage door is damaged

06/03/2015

Though all garage doors don’t have the same lifespan, they do all show some signs of damage or wear and tear over time – even if you keep up to your maintenance jobs.

When this inevitability arises, it’s crucial for you to do one of two things: repair or replace.

Unfortunately, numerous studies over the past few years have found that thieves target outbuildings. While we are lucky to live in such a nice area, even York homeowners should be aware of the threat of burglary – you can never be too careful.

If you’re not sure of whether your garage door needs repairing or replacing then carry on reading! Today we’re going to explain some things you should consider before making a final decision:

How bad is the damage?

Despite you needing to sort out the issue quickly, it’s still important not to rush a repair or replacement. A local York garage door specialist should be more than happy to assess the damage so that you can come to a measured decision.

Is it past its sell by date?

As we initially mentioned, not all garage doors have the same lifespan. They do, however, generally last between 20 and 30 years. If your model is therefore approaching this age and has significant damage, it may be worth investing in an upgrade.
