Beyond Aesthetics: Why Panel Replacement Matters

You might think a dented or cracked panel only affects how your garage looks - but there’s more at stake than curb appeal. Damaged panels may lead to bigger problems if not addressed promptly:

  • Damaged Panels can make it hard for your garage door opener to lift and lower the doors properly because they add unnecessary weight or imbalance.
  • A broken piece could become loose over time, potentially leading to an accident when someone opens or closes the door.
  • Prolonged neglect may cause other components like springs and cables to wear out faster due their extra strain from lifting imbalanced doors.

Selecting Your New Panel

We know picking out new parts can feel daunting – especially if this is all Greek to you. But here are some key factors worth considering:

  • When selecting a replacement panel, be sure to consider the material used in the existing door; typically steel, aluminum, wood or fiberglass. Your replacement panel should match the existing ones for consistency and compatibility.
  • Style & Color: To maintain your home's aesthetic charm, pick a panel that matches your current door style and color.
  • Insulation: If you use your garage as a workspace or it’s attached to your house, consider an insulated panel to help control temperature extremes in both summer and winter.
