Garage door replacement signs


Your garage is a big part of your home, and it’s therefore important that you make sure it’s in good shape. Sadly, no matter how careful you are, there will no doubt come a time when your garage door needs replacing. Here are some of the tell-tale signs that your door is on the way out:


No garage door is silent, but if you start to notice your door becoming louder than usual, chances are there’s a problem. It could just be a simple component that needs replacing, but if your garage door is regularly making a racket then it may have to go.


Garage doors aren’t exactly made for speed, but the last thing you need when you’ve got places to be is a door that takes an eternity to open and close. Slow response times are also cause for concern. If there’s a noticeable delay between pressing the button and the mechanism triggering, it’s time for a replacement.

Security and safety

Your garage door needs to be secure and safe, and you need to have confidence in it. Failures in the door mechanism could allow easy access for burglars, or potentially cause harm to you and your family. If you notice your garage door isn’t fully opening or closing, or its sensors are playing up, it’s best to sort it out sooner rather than later.


Even if your garage door seems to work perfectly well, you may want to replace it. After all, they see a lot of use and accumulate wear and tear in the process. Chips and dents can make your garage look shabby and could be an indicator of mechanical difficulties.  

Alternatively, your door might have just fallen out of fashion – a new one could brighten up your home’s exterior and even add to the value of the property. With newer models come new features and technologies, so a fresh door could be well worth the investment.
