Repair or Replace: Is It Time for a New Garage Door?

Customer contemplating a garage door repair or replacement

Though many factors contribute to the lifespan of a garage door, like all things, they experience wear and tear over time. So, when your garage door starts acting up, the question arises: Opt for garage door repair or garage door replacement?

Luckily, the experts at Garolla are on hand to help you navigate this dilemma and determine the best course of action to ensure your garage door continues to operate smoothly and securely for years to come.

Pros and Cons of Garage Door Repair

  • Convenience: Repairs for minor issues on your old garage door can often be completed quickly and efficiently, minimising the disruption to your life and getting your garage door back in working order without the need for a replacement
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Garage door repairs typically offer greater savings in the short term compared with garage doro replacements, but this could lead to more frequent repairs and higher costs down the line if the underlying problem isn't fully addressed. Checkatrade estimates that a repair could cost anywhere up to £800, depending on the issue
  • Temporary Solution: Opting for a quick fix now might seem budget-friendly, but neglecting major issues could lead to safety hazards, increased energy bills, and ultimately, a more expensive replacement cost later down the line

Signs It's Time for a New Garage Door

Is it time to say goodbye to your old garage door and invest in a garage door replacement? Here are some telltale signs:

  • Excessive Wear and Tear: Visible damage, such as rust, dents, cracks or broken panels, isn’t just an eyesore; it compromises the door’s structural integrity, making it vulnerable to further damage and potential collapse
  • Old Age: Generally speaking, doors older than 15-20 years are nearing the end of their lifespan – if yours falls into this category, replacement might be a proactive measure to avoid future headaches
  • Limited Features: Outdated technology can compromise security and convenience – ensure your garage door is equipped with the latest features, such as SafeGuard Plus, auto lock and anti-clone remote controls, by upgrading to a modern garage door from Garolla
