Once you have considered your options, contact Dynamic Garage Door at 855-343-3667 for your free quote on a custom garage door.
Repair a Garage Door That Has Trouble Lifting
If your garage door is struggling to lift, it may be as simple as replacing the lift motor. Remember that your garage door is heavy. The lift motor undergoes a lot of wear and tear and can lose strength over time. By replacing the motor, or even the springs, the door could run as good as new.
Repair a Garage That Closes Halfway
If your garage door refuses to close all the way, then it is likely you have an imbalance in the door itself. This can be caused by excess wear and tear on the lifting mechanism and results when one side of the garage door is working harder. In this case, calling Dynamic Garage Door for garage door repair is likely your best option because we can likely fix the parts that are out of balance.
Repair a Damaged Garage Door Panel
If you have dings or dents in your garage door panel, this is not likely a requirement to replace the entire garage door. Instead, we can generally replace just the panel that has become damaged. That said, if there are many panels in need of replacement, it may be more affordable to replace the entire garage door rather than just the damaged panels.
Replace a Garage Door with Severe Damage
As noted above, if your garage door has several issues with it, or the issues are severe, even if it can technically be repaired it may be time to replace it. The price of buying and installing several components could be more than it would cost to simply get a new garage door.
Replace an Old Garage Door
If you buy a high-quality garage door and maintain it properly, it can last as long as 30 years. However, as a garage door gets older it is more likely to need repairs. If you have had your garage door for many years and have frequently repaired it in the last few years, then it may be time to upgrade it.
Replace an Unsafe Garage Door
Today’s safety features on garage doors are far superior to older garage doors. If you have children, pets, or are otherwise worried about the safety of your garage door then now is a great time to update to a modern, safe option.
