Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Austin, Texas shares tips and techniques to keep your garage door running smoothly and stay in great condition. We are able to assist you with repairs, maintenance and complete installations.

One area that we suggest our customers to consider is to replace their old, rough looking garage door.  Typically, households have a running list of home improvement projects.  A garage door replacement seems to get pushed to the bottom but we think it should be a top priority.  Check out the reasons we encourage you to replace your old, poorly functioning door.

7 Reasons to Replace Your Old Garage Door


replace your old garage door to reduce noise

A brand new door opens quite smoothly and quietly.  The opposite is true as a garage door begins to age.  If you begin to hear your door opening and closing noisily then it may be time to get a replacement.  Don’t delay and let it continue to deteriorate.

Too Slow

Have you ever noticed a delay or that your garage door opens or closes slowly?  In reality, the door should react to your use of the garage door opener within seconds.  If you have a door that is not acting normally and becoming slower, then you may need to get a professional to look at it or have it replaced.


Garage doors are one of the largest and most noticeable parts of your home.  They often face the street and are noticed daily.  If you have a door that is an older style and needs a little attention, then perhaps it is time to consider a new one.  Potentially, you could improve the curb appeal of your home and both you and your neighbors might be glad you did.


The newer the garage door, the better and more up to date the door will be with safety technology.  If you have an older model, then you may want to consider a replacement that would have a feature such as automatic reversal.  When there is something in the way of the door closing, then it will reverse automatically which is safer for your both people and pets.

An old door lacks the security and safety that our company suggests for your home.  We can handle any replacement if you need our assistance.

Damaged Doors

If your door has had repeated hits over the years, then the damages may be a reason to replace your overhead door.   Overtime, balls, bats, weather and even bump ups from vehicles can cause damage to garage doors.  If you want to enhance the appearance and make some repairs, then it may be time to consider a replacement rather than repair.

Power Bills

replace your old garage door to help your power bill

Your electric bill may go through the roof, over time, if you don’t have a door that seals well when it closes.   Also, you may have a poorly insulated door that could cause an increase to your monthly bills.  If and when you choose to replace your garage door, then be sure to select one that is well insulated.  You’ll be glad you did and so will your budget.


The number one reason to replace your garage door is due to multiple and continuous malfunctions.  Your door should be a helpful benefit to your home for safety, convenience and more.  In the event that you notice more issues rather than convenience, then we encourage you to replace rather than continue to struggle with your malfunctioning door.

Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Austin, Texas is available to assist you with your garage door needs.  We are willing to answer any questions and even replace your door if you would like to have us service your home.  Contact us with any questions and we look forward to working with you.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
