It’s not uncommon for new drivers, distracted drivers, and drivers that just lose focus for a moment to find little scuffs, dings, or dents on the bumper of their car. Most of the time, it’s just cosmetic and the car is still driveable. But when those little “bumps” happen to the garage door, it could affect the whole apparatus.
A damaged garage door panel could make the door inoperable. Either the bottom section panels are bent so the garage door won’t be able to open all the way or components (tracks, rollers, or hinges) are damaged during the accident. Either way, Ponderosa Garage Door and Repair can remedy the situation.
Garage Door Panel Repair and Replacement
We can replace individual sections or panels. Door replacement panels are available for many models and brands. If you have a damaged panel, the replacement cost will be much less than if you were to replace the entire door, which may require new hardware, too.
Before we order a replacement panel, we’ll need to know which part of the door was damaged. Most doors consist of bottom, middle, and top panels. Serial numbers are printed on most garage doors, making it easy to identify the model and find an exact replacement part. Look for the identifying numbers on the inside edge of any one of the garage door sections.
One of our technicians will install the replacement panel. During installation, we may disconnect the opener. We may need to make adjustments to the hardware. Before leaving, we’ll test the door and make sure everything is working properly – which makes it the perfect time for a tune-up.
We will inspect the garage door springs, tracks and rollers, and the car garage door opener to make sure they are all in good form. We provide garage door service for all styles and designs, including carriage house doors, overhead doors, and wood, vinyl, and steel doors.
Replacing the garage door
There are times when we can’t replace a panel or section. If the door is old, parts may be discontinued or not available. It may be difficult to get a matching color or style. Wood door parts are more difficult to find, for example, as technological advances have made steel, aluminum, and vinyl doors more practical.
When a door has extensive damage, installing a new one is often the best solution. They’re lighter, more durable, and can be insulated to make the garage more comfortable. As a full-service garage door company, Ponderosa Garage Doors and Repair has access to most makes and models of garage doors, including Clopay garage doors.
If it makes sense to replace the whole door, why not take the opportunity to give your home an immediate facelift? In most cases, the garage door makes up nearly half of the visible area of your home from the street. A new garage door can change the look and feel of your home overnight.
When working with Ponderosa Garage Doors and Repair, we’ll design-build the ideal garage door for your home. In both how it operates and how it looks. If you’re already considering a whole home remodel, including a new garage door makes total sense.
