Do You Have to Fix a Warped Garage Door?

Have you started to notice a slight bend or bowing in your garage door? While this may not seem like a big deal, leaving it untreated could lead to further, more costly replacements or repairs. Fortunately, our team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair can help fix the warping in your garage door to have it looking and working like new!

Why is My Garage Door Warped? 

Apart from the obvious of having an accident and driving into your garage door, there are other factors that can cause your garage door to warp. The first one relates to wooden garage doors. Though these doors are beautiful and can really add to the look of your home, they are extremely susceptible to warping. 

A wooden garage door will warp because of fluctuations in weather. With drastic changes in temperature, the wood weakens and you may begin to see your garage door bow or cave-in. Not only is this unsightly, but it really affects the integrity of your garage door opener.

Steel Garage Doors

Because of the issues with wooden garage doors warping, most homes have steel garage doors. Though not as common, these are susceptible to warping as well. When you start to see your steel garage door bow, this is usually an indication that your opener is not strong enough for the weight of the door.

How is it Fixed? 

With warping on your garage door, it is beneficial to be proactive. From the first sign that your garage door is starting to bow, it is imperative to call a repair team. If the warping is caught early on, you may end up only replacing a few panels on your garage door, saving time and money. 

On the other hand, if the warping is left untreated and extends to most of the garage door, it is likely you will have to replace the entire door. This is obviously the most expensive option and should be avoided, if possible.

Is Warping Preventable? 

With some garage doors, like wooden ones, some bending or warping is almost unavoidable. However, knowing your door is more susceptible to warping and looking out for that, especially in extreme weather, is beneficial. Therefore, even though you may get the look that you are after with a wooden garage door, it’s helpful to understand the risks that are involved.

To avoid a warped garage door altogether, you may want to invest in a steel garage door. Fortunately, there are several brands out there that have steel cores and a wood-like exterior that gives the look and feel of a wooden garage door. Working with a trusted company will ensure you get a quality steel garage door and an opener that can handle its weight.

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.
