When should I get a garage door panel replacement?
A garage door panel is a small or large section of your garage door. Usually, it can be one square, or in case of a major damage, many squares of your garage door. A garage door panel should be replaced if there were minor damages to it. If there are major damages like rusting or big dents, then you will need to replace the entire garage door.
Usually, people prefer the option of replacing a panel because it can help you save money since you’re not having to buy a new garage door. But keep in mind that sometimes, replacing a panel is not always possible.
So, you’re saying that it’s possible to replace a garage door panel?
As you might have guessed by now, that means, yes, you can replace a garage door panel. In fact, it’s highly recommended to replace a panel if there are minor issues to it that needs to be changed.
A lot of people try different methods to replace a garage door panel that can make replacing the panel difficult. Let’s go over the different options.
Trying to fix the garage door panel on your own
A lot of people try to fix the garage door panel by themselves because they think that hiring a professional would mean more expenses. However, the problem with do-it-yourself (DIY) methods of fixing your panel is that you will need to find:
- A panel that has the same texture as the rest of your garage door.
- A panel that is made of the same material
- A pane that has the same color
After finding the right panel, which is often very difficult, you’ll need to know how to install the panel on your own. Installing a panel also involves different safety procedures that only a professional would be aware of.
Turning to a professional to fix your garage door panel
Rather than trying to fix the garage door panel on your own, a professional would help you find the right panel that would match your garage door. The professional would:
- Make sure to follow safety procedures while installing the panel
- Make sure the panel matches the rest of the garage door
- Make sure the panel is safe and secure so that there are no potential issues
