Now we are going to go over 5 causes of garage door damage and how to prevent them, so you can get the most out of your garage door.

    One of the major causes of dents on the garage door panel that can cause further damage is vehicles running into the garage door. Dented garage door panels can lead to further stress on the garage door springs and/or have the garage door jump the garage door track.

    Common garage door repair related FAQ

    How long does it take to replace a garage door?

    Roughly 3 to 4 hours, if done properly.

    How often should my a garage door be serviced?

    Your garage door is a large piece of moving equipment made up of many parts. Some families use their garage door more than their front door. We recommend having your garage door and operator serviced every year in order to ensure a properly working door and operator. The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warning signs” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result.

    How long do garage door springs usually last?

    The most common torsion springs have an expected life of about 10,000 cycles (one opening and one closing is a cycle.)

    What is the life span of a garage door opener?

    The average life span of a door opener can vary from 10 to 20 years depending on the model and usage.
