Do I Really Need a New Door?

For many, this is a simple question to answer. Wood garage doors rot, metal garage doors get banged up, track hardware falls apart. If that’s the situation you face, there’s probably not much choice in the matter. You need a new door.

But just because your garage door isn’t functioning properly, it doesn’t necessarily follow that it needs to be replaced. You can hold down your garage door costs by doing a little maintenance and repair yourself. For some guidance, check out How To Quiet a Noisy Garage Door and Simple Garage Door Maintenance Tips.

If cold air whips around the edges of your garage door, you don’t necessarily need to replace it. See What To Look for in Garage Door Seals for information on patching those leaks. Also note that wood and metal garage doors can be transformed with a paint job, which is much less expensive than replacement.
