Do I Repair or Replace My Garage Door?

Are you having problems with your garage door? A damaged garage door may need urgent attention by a professional to prevent any risk to you or your family. A faulty garage door could potentially cause injury to you or somebody else, and an insecure door puts you at risk of theft.

If you suspect that your garage door is damaged, call The Garage Door Centre today and let our team take a look. We can quickly advise on whether the door can be repaired, or whether it will need to be replaced. In most cases, repair will be possible and we can restore your door to full working order that very same day.

Don’t ignore small problems with your garage door

If you notice a minor fault with your door, such as slower opening and closing or an unusual noise during operation, make sure you call The Garage Door Centre’s repair technicians immediately. Small problems with your garage door can quickly worsen, and you could even end up replacing the whole door because of a relatively minor fault. Attend to any unusual creaking, banging or vibrating issues in a timely manner by booking a service check by our trusted garage door engineers.

Beware of electrical and mechanical failure

If a garage door fails to open and close properly, the cables inside may be twisted or severed. In a mechanical door, a broken cable can cause the door to close suddenly, with risk of serious injury. Where a garage door is fitted with an electrical operating system, a severed cable can lead to shock injuries. If you suspect a cable fault, call in an engineer immediately. Keep away from the door until The Garage Door Centre has taken care of it.

Replacing your garage door

At The Garage Door Centre, we always try to repair your door before we consider a replacement. However, there are some situations where a new garage door is recommended. If you are renovating your home before selling, consider replacing your garage door. A new, strong and clean garage door is sure to add value to your home.

If door sections themselves become damaged, either through force or through rusting, the door will lose its integrity and need replacing. The Garage Door Centre can fit a new, affordable and reliable garage door for you – contact us today for a quote. Rust and damaged components are inevitable when you ignore damage to door closers and tracks, so be sure to address those small problems early on! Trust The Garage Door Centre: call our team today.
