People are often frustrated to learn that replacing the garage door is necessary because it is not possible to replace garage door panels on certain garage doors. For example, many people purchase metal roll up style garage doors. These garage doors are great in that they are strong, light, relatively low cost, and are generally easy to maintain (as opposed to wooden garage doors.) However, they do have the drawback that if they are severely dented, crushed, or torn, it is not possible to repair them by replacing panels, etc., because the door panels are welded together. This also applies to other parts on the garage door that if damaged can not be replaced.
If you are in this situation, and you need a garage door replaced, you have come to the right place. With many years experience in replacing garage doors, you can rest assured that we have the ability to not only replace your garage door, but to help you determine the best garage door components that are right for you- and we can even save you money at the same time! In fact, our customers really appreciate that we do not play any "bait and switch games" like some of our competitors do. For example, some companies do not include the hauling away of your old door in their estimate, and after installing your new garage door some will even leave your old garage door in your driveway unless you pay them another additional fee- this is unthinkable to us as we would never do this to one of our customers. All of our job prices include everything to totally complete the job. If you get an estimate on a garage door replacement from another company, be sure to ask them if it includes taking your old door away.
There are two types of garage doors: the one piece "flip-up" garage door, and the multi-piece panel "roll-up" garage door. Some people prefer one type to the other, but the "roll-up" garage doors are becoming more popular. Replacing garage doors is different depending on which type of garage door needs to be replaced. To replace the "flip-up" style garage door, the garage door hinges must first be removed, then the garage door can be taken down. When replacing these doors, it is sometimes necessary to frame in a new square opening for the garage door. The garage door must then be put on the tracks and all of the necessary garage door hardware is attached. The roll up garage door replacement is a little bit different. Most of the time the roll up garage door tracks should be replaced although this is not always necessary depending on how old the garage door is. If you need to have your garage door replaced, it is important to have a licensed, insured company when performing these repairs, and as stated above be sure to make sure that who ever performs your garage door repalcement is going to haul away your old garage door when they are finished.
