How to Know When You Need New Garage Door Panels

Many homeowners think that you have to replace your entire door when there is damage. However, depending on the condition of your entire door, you may be able to just get new garage door panels. Our technicians are able to determine what the best course of action for your repairs.

We put together a few signs that you might need to have your panels replaced. This is what you will want to look for.

Cracks in the Paint

If you have a painted door, the paint can start chipping away after time. Sometimes, the finish on the door can also wear out and expose the material underneath. You want to be sure that the protectant is covering the entire panel. Otherwise, you’ll end up with rust.

When the paint or sealant is chipping away, you can cover it with a new sealant. If the area is large, then you will want to replace the entire panel. But, if you catch it early enough, sealing it with an outdoor paint or seal will work.

Warped Wood

Wood garage doors are very beautiful, but they also have the problem of warping over time. Weather can be a huge factor in the wood becoming warped. When the temperatures go from extreme cold to hot, it will affect the material.

If you have a wooden door and one or more of the panels becomes warped, then you need to have them replaced. There is not a solution to warped panels.

Replacing a Wooden Door

Many of our customers decide to replace their old wooden doors with wood composite doors. This way, they get the beauty of the grain finish with the durability of the composite. Composite doors are made from a combination of metal and wood.


Dents or dings can happen to your garage door. Some of the reasons you may have these imperfection include:

  • Backing into the door
  • Toys or balls hitting the panels
  • Bike running into the equipment

Whatever the reason you have the dents or dings, you should replace the panel if it is highly damaged. You can try and pull the dent out with the same type of tool you would use for a car. However, if the dent is too deep, then a new panel is in order.

The reason you will want to replace the panels when the dents are so deep is to keep the finish from chipping. Eventually, the dents will lead to chipped paint or finishes.

Bent Sections

Sections of your door can become bent from things hitting it. When that happens, your door will not close properly. You might see light coming in from the door jam when the equipment is closed. That’s a good indication that the assembly is not straight.

Bent sections can lead to:

  • Improper function of the door
  • Less insulation
  • Chipping paint or sealants

To avoid greater damage, you will want to replace the panels as soon as you can.

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.
