Repairs are part and parcel of standard household maintenance, and this includes your garage doors. Small repairs will not necessarily cost a vast amount if dealt with in a timely manner. Unfortunately, if left, the damage can end up escalating, which in turn will result in a higher repair bill or increase the likelihood that a complete replacement will be required. If you are currently considering a repair, it is worth bearing in mind that the average lifespan of a garage door is between 8 and 15 years. So, if your garage doors are approaching, or have reached, this period it is probably time to opt for a new, modern replacement garage door.

When to repair your garage door

The question of whether to incur the cost of a repair to your garage door depends on several factors. As previously mentioned, doors that are between 8 and 15 years old are really due for replacement. However, if the garage doors have just started to malfunction resulting in them not opening or closing properly, it could be due to one, or a combination, of issues. For example you may have a faulty garage door extension spring, misadjusted sensitivity, rollers in need of lubrication, broken rollers or snapped lift cables… the list does go on! Please do not worry, our expert garage door repair services are here to help. Remember: always resolve small repairs quickly, as this will extend the lifespan of your garage door.
