How to Know When It’s Time to Replace a Garage Door

Most homeowners use their garage doors every day, and local Nashville area residents deserve to have a door that pairs the best qualities of stunning curb appeal and dependable, smooth performance. If you don’t remember the last time you replaced your garage door, then it’s worth considering a much-needed upgrade. The average lifespan of a garage door is approximately 15 years, and over time, you may find your door is dingy, less responsive and inefficient.

The following characteristics are signs that it’s time to replace your garage door:

  • Slower response and movement: When you click your remote prompting garage door movement, the door should respond within several seconds. If your garage door has a significantly delayed response compared to when the door was initially installed, then you could benefit from a new, updated system.
  • Noisy operations: Garage doors are typically loud while moving, but if you begin to note noisier operations or unusual sounds like grating, grinding or rattling then you should replace your garage door for steadier movement.
  • Poor safety and security: Many older garage door models lack advanced security and safety features that improve daily use. Garage doors manufactured before 1993 lack photo eye sensors that reverse the direction of the door if it detects an object in the pathway — without this crucial component, the door could easily slam down on a person or other object. Also, many older opener models don’t feature rolling codes, making duplicating the frequency of the opener easy for intruders.
  • Diminished appearance: If your garage door is limiting the curb appeal of your home, then consider replacing your garage door with a stunning, one-of-a-kind carriage-house style or contemporary door crafted from the finest materials.
  • Inferior technology: With modern technology, your garage door is no longer limited to simply raising and lowering as commanded — advanced garage door openers feature Wi-Fi and whole-home connectivity, smartphone control, battery backup and timer-to-close features.
  • Age and functionality: If your door is nearing the end of its usable lifespan then it’s time to inspect the quality of your door’s hardware. Parts like the springs, tracks, rollers and cables have limited usability and could unexpectedly break near the end of their life.
  • Frequent repairs: Evaluate whether you’re scheduling frequent garage door repairs — while repairs can be an immediate, cost-effective solution, regular repairs and even last-minute attention can end up costing more than a garage door replacement.

Repairing Versus Replacing Garage Doors

While there are several signs it’s time to replace your garage door if it’s still performing dependably, safety and steadily, how can you tell whether your door is best suited for replacement? An obvious sign it’s time for a replacement is if the door is detracting from the appeal of your home — garage doors occupy up to 40 percent of your facade, and a new door can enhance your home’s existing architecture. A garage door replacement is especially beneficial if you’re hoping to sell your home in the future. Also, consider whether your garage door has significant structural damages like rust or corrosion buildup or large dents.

If your door only requires minor, less costly repairs, features modern improvements and the exterior condition is still in pristine condition, then garage door repairs are more practical for your home.
