As a homeowner, it is important to know when to replace your garage door and when it can last for a little longer. There are some things you can do on your own to prolong the life of your garage door. However, there may come a time when you need to replace it for functionality as well as curb appeal.
Your Current Garage Door is Damaged
Over the years there are many reasons your garage door can become damaged. You may experience an accidental bump from one of your vehicles, or damage from winds or temperature swings due to extreme weather conditions. Many things could shorten the lifespan of your door.
If you think your overhead door may need to be replaced due to damage, it’s smart to first have it checked out by a professional technician.
If the damage is causing the door to not function properly, then you will want to replace it. If parts of your system have been exposed to harsh weather conditions on account of the damage, rust could be causing the issue.
Your Garage Door is not Working Properly
Sometimes an overhead door may begin to malfunction and not work properly. This can happen with newer parts that are faulty, or when older parts become rusty. When your garage door isn’t working properly it’s possible that it can pose a safety risk and need to be replaced.
If your overhead door is not moving properly or become stuck in an open or close position, give Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Tampa a call. We will help you find a replacement door and install it for you so you will have a properly functioning garage door again.
The Look of Your Current Overhead Door is Old and Dated
After many years of use and exposure to the elements, your garage door may begin to look old and dated. You may experience issues such as cracking paint, warped panels, or rubber seals coming unattached.
Having an older looking door will make the overall look of your home appear to be dated and worn as well. Since your garage door takes up approximately 30-50% of your home’s exterior, It’s important to have a fresh and updated garage door that matches the overall look of your home. Choosing a brand new garage door that is made with quality materials will keep your new door looking fresh and new for many years.
