5 Signs That Your Garage Door Needs Replacing – Infographic

Sometimes, it’s wiser to start afresh rather than stick with what you already have. When something breaks, you can usually choose to repair it or replace it; depending on the damage or the nature of the issue, you might find that replacing is more cost-effective and safer. When it comes to a garage door, there are some instances where it’s more prudent to replace rather than repair. In this piece, we’re looking at 5 signs that it’s time to replace your garage door with a brand new one.

Outdated design

Your garage door might have been perfect over a decade ago, but by today’s standards it will fall well short in terms of security, energy efficiency and condition. If you have an old garage door and it’s showing signs of wear, or some of the components are damaged, it’s definitely better to replace it rather than try to extend its already limited lifespan.

Broken parts

Some roller garage door components are simple to replace and maintain, however, some are not — and some damage will compromise the safety and operation of the door in the future. If the door has suffered severe damage, or its components are acting up regularly, take stock and consider a replacement rather than settling for multiple repair jobs.

Inconsistent operation

You use your garage door a lot, so you’ll notice any differences, no matter how slight, in its day-to-day operation. If the door is opening or closing inconsistently — in speed, smoothness, or responsiveness — this means the door is unsafe to use. Underlying faults could quickly lead to complete breakdowns, so it’s safer to replace the door with a new, modern and reliable alternative.

It doesn’t fit with your lifestyle anymore

A roller door is the most compact garage door available, and offers a host of convenient features from security to day-to-day functionality. If you have an old up and over door, or a manual door of any kind, then it might be time to opt for a garage door that’s easier to use and fits better with your lifestyle. Roller doors are particularly helpful for anyone with accessibility issues or disabilities, so if you find that you’re struggling to open your current door, a new automated roller door could be exactly what you need.

Your garage door is too noisy

Whether it’s the door itself or the ability of the door to dampen noise from the outside, an older door simply can’t match up to modern models. Older doors can generate a lot of noise when they open or close; loud metallic clangs and prolonged noise when opening the door are common. Uninsulated doors, too, won’t be able to reduce noise levels from the street — a sticking point if you have an office or living area in the garage. A modern, insulated roller door will operate quietly and cut out exterior noise, two major plus points that will truly make a difference.
