Can You Fix a Dented Garage Door?

When you drive up to your home, are your eyes immediately drawn to your dented garage door? Do you cringe a little thinking about how your property value is being affected by the rundown look of your door? Do you want to get it repaired but are concerned about the cost?

The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair has an answer to, “can you fix a dented garage door?”.

Dented Doors Don’t Always Need To Be Replaced

If you do a quick internet search for repairing a dented garage door, you will find that there are a few tricks up the DIYers sleeves to fix small dents in stainless steel and aluminum garage doors. Small dents stand a good chance of being repaired easily. 

You do need to consider how your door was damaged. An errant soccer or basketball may have caused a dent but left the garage door’s frame undamaged. A bump with a car, however, may leave only a small dent in the panel but have caused damage to the garage door tracks. 

If you have more extensive damage, calling a professional may help you avoid an even more costly repair in the future. But if your door is still in good working order, some of the at-home dent removal options may be a good choice for you. 

Is It Possible to Replace Just the Damaged Panel?

Possibly, but there are some factors to consider when looking into this option. Just like with the smaller dents, you need to make sure that whatever caused the dent did not damage the garage door’s mechanisms as well. If the system is sound then the next issue is the age of your door. 

All the parts of garage doors systems are designed to work together and balance is an important part of the system. If the weight of the panel does not match then that may throw off the garage doors operation. That is where the age comes in. 

If your garage door is no longer being manufactured it may be hard to find a panel that fits your existing system. However, if you can to purchase new panels for your garage door, this can be a cost-effective fix for those pesky dents. If you need several panels replaced, the cost will go up and replacing the entire door may be less expensive. 

Replacing Your Entire Garage Door May Be the Best Option

So what if the new driver in your home foot slips and you know that behind those dents are warped tracks or other issues? If the damage is severe enough, replacing your entire garage door system may save you money in the long run. Trying to operate a garage door when it is not properly aligned or balanced will cause wear on the system and will lead to failure over time. 

If you are not sure if your garage door has been damaged, it is a good idea to get in touch with a professional to come to perform an inspection. They can also advise you about what options are available for your specific door’s style or material.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
