Precision Garage Door of Des Moines
The amount of damage that the garage door has sustained is also a consideration when you are deciding if you should make repairs to the panels or replace them. If there is minor damage, such as if a small object hits the door or if it suffers minor damage from hail, you may be able to repair the door by yourself by filling in the dent and painting over the surface. However, if you hit the garage door with the car or it otherwise suffered more severe damage, the door may be much more expensive to repair, and it might ultimately make sense to get the door replaced instead. Regardless of your choice, you should have a professional evaluate the door and check for underlying damage to make sure there is no hidden damage that you are missing. A professional can also look at other parts of the garage door, including the garage door opener and other components, to ensure that they have not been badly damaged from the impact.
Before you decide whether or not to repair the damaged panels on your garage door or get a new garage door, you may want to think about the total cost. Each individual garage door panel can range from $200 – $700.
If you only need to replace one or two panels, and if the garage door is otherwise in good condition and has enough life left, it might make more sense to replace the few damaged panels. If the damage is truly minimal, you may also be able to repair the panels and make them look new. It will cost about $100 – $200 to repair a single damaged panel, provided the panel can just be touched up with filler and paint. However, if you have an older garage door, replacing the entire door might be more financially feasible. It may also be possible to repair a garage door instead of replacing it. If your garage door has dents, holes, or is rotted or rusted, you may be able to repair the garage door. Wood panels are the most expensive to repair, while steel panels are the least expensive.
