Do I Need a New Garage Door?

If you’re having problems with your garage door, it may need urgent attention to avoid risk to you, your family or your property. A faulty garage door can also put you at an increased risk of theft. This blog aims to help you establish whether you need to replace your door or whether a repair by the experts at Repair or Replace Ltd could be right for you.
We can quickly advise on whether the door can be repaired, or whether it will need to be replaced. In most cases, repair will be possible and we can restore your door to full working order that very same day.
If you notice a minor fault with your door, such as slower opening and closing or an unusual noise during operation, you need to talk to the experts. Small problems can quickly worsen or be indicative of much larger problems. Letting the issue get worse can mean something that would have been an easy fix now requires an entire door replacement. If there’s any unusual creaking, banging or vibrating issues, contact the experts at Repair and Replace Ltd and we’ll determine the fault.
If a garage door fails to open and close properly, this could indicate the cables inside are twisted or severed. A broken cable can cause the door to close suddenly, with risk of serious injury to you and your family. If your garage uses an electrical operating system rather than a mechanical one, a severed cable can lead to shock injuries. A faulty cable can be incredibly dangerous to everyone in the home so be sure to contact us right away if there seems to be a problem.
Though we will always endeavour to repair your garage door rather than replace it, there are some circumstance where replacement makes the most sense. If you’re looking to sell your property, a new door can add real value. If there’s damage to door sections due to rust or force, we will work with you to find the right door for your needs and your budget.
