Should You Replace Just One Garage Door Panel?

At Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Charlotte, NC, we see all kinds of garage door damage. Sometimes we get a service call when just one part of the door has been damaged. This raises the question, should you replace just one garage door panel?


If you’re considering whether to replace just one panel or the entire garage door, appearance is the most obvious consideration. Finding a replacement panel that will match the existing door can be difficult. The older your door is, the hard it can be to match it.

If your door is no longer being made, you’ll have to have a new panel custom fabricated. Even then, it can be tricky to match the color exactly because the rest of the door will be faded from age. If maintaining the curb-appeal of your home is very important to you, replacing just one garage door panel may not be the best option.


A garage door panel rarely gets damaged all on its own without affecting other systems. If the panel was damaged due to a collision of some kind, it may have damaged other parts as well. Be sure to check the hinges, rollers, and tracks to be sure they are all working properly.

Damage to the rollers and hinges will only get worse over time, leading to further wear and tear. If the tracks have gotten bent, it will cause the door to be slow and jerky, or not open at all. Eventually, this can cause damage to other panels as well. It’s better to take care of these problems now rather than having the door stop working at some point down the road.


If any other systems have been affected, you could be looking at safety hazards as well. A bent track could add stress to the springs and cause them to snap. Damaged hinges could fail and drop the door during operation.

Your garage door is the largest moving part in your home. It’s important to take good care of it to prevent any kind of harm to your family or damage to your property. Any kind of severe damage to your door should be followed up with a safety inspection by a professional.

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.
