Dented garage door?
Dents can be unsightly and can even cause your HOA to notify you to replace your door.
Garage Door Dented/Aesthetic Panel Damage
We’ve all been there. Sometimes you’re in a rush backing out of the garage and accidentally give your garage door a “love tap” with your car. Or, maybe you were playing basketball in the driveway and missed the shot. Unfortunately, these common accidents can lead to dented garage panels that create more serious consequences if not repaired.
Although typically maintenance- free, garage doors are made of thin steel with a pressed wood appearance and will dent easily. These dents can be aesthetically unpleasing and will decrease your overall curb appeal. While a small dent may not be a huge deal at first, damaged doors can affect other door features such as opening and closing correctly. Most importantly, damaged garage panels place your home’s safety and security in risk.
Large dents will need replacement, especially if more components than just the panel were affected. Once the metal is stretched and damaged, you have two repair options. If your door was installed in the past five years, repairs could be as simple as replacing the panel at a lower cost. With older garage door models, you will need to replace the entire door.
Although smaller dents can be repaired using common household items, damage doesn’t always respond well to home remedies and can cause more issues down the line.
The important this is not to panic and assess your repair options. This is where the professionals come in.
