A garage door is made up of many panels that are connected by hinges.

These ways include cracking and chipping, and also water damage if not treated properly. Should damage occur, you can acquire replacement panels for either panel replacement or repair.
A garage door is a very important part of the majority of households. It makes your life convenient by allowing you to enter and leave your home with ease and also provides a barrier of safety for your motor vehicle and any other belongings you choose to store in the garage. Over and above this, a garage door adds to the value of the property and the visual element of the building as a whole. When they become damaged, it is crucial to call in an expert to do a repair job to the panels rather than having to replace the entire door.
Issues with Garage Door Panels
Garage door panels can become damaged over time. Most of the time, broken panels can cause undue stress. There is, however, an incorrect perception that should a panel be damaged, the entire garage door must be replaced. The hand part of a garage door panel is that you can choose to replace just the singular damaged panel instead of the entire door. This much more cost-effective as replacing the whole garage door would prove to be much more costly as well as much more work.
There are a multitude of scenarios that may take place where you may need to replace your garage door panels. Some of these scenarios include panels that have:
- Not aged well
- Outdated or discontinued garage door panels
- Bent panels
- Dented panels
Old panels may start to creak and make other noises that signal damage. Should this occur, you should consider changing the panel. Discontinued garage doors also pose a problem, as they may no longer manufacture the panels that are used by the specific garage door, and using different panels looks out of place.
In this case, one should consider the replacement of the panels so as to avoid future issues.
Panel Replacement Vs. Garage Door Replacement
When damage occurs to the garage door, it is one’s first instinct to think of replacing the entire garage door. When damage does occur, it is important to assess the damage and determine whether it is to the whole door or just a singular panel, as this can make a big difference. When considering the replacement of a garage door panel or garage door, there are three important factors to consider that help you determine whether just a panel or the whole door needs to be replaced. These factors for consideration are the age of the garage door, the number of damaged panels, and the visual damage on the door.
➢ If a garage door is extremely old and damaged, the chances are are you may need a new garage door installation. In this case, replacing one panel may just be a short-term fix that only delays the inevitable. This is usually going to be the case unless you previously replaced the other panels on the garage door and left some of the old ones behind.
➢ When it comes to the number of damaged panels, it is important to determine how many of the panels need replacing. Should a small number of the panels be damaged, then it would be a smarter decision to replace just those specific panels, which is much cheaper than replacing the entire door.
However, if the majority of panels are damaged in any way, it may just be a better decision to replace the entire garage door to save yourself having to replace the rest of the panels at a later date.
➢ The final factor is considering the visual damage to the door. When considering how damaged a door is, one might only notice damage such as scratches or chipping. It is important to note whether a panel has been bent or dented as well. Some panels may only look scratched, and you may not replace them only to find out that once a new panel has been installed, the old panel looks out of place and damaged. For this reason, one should pay careful attention when analyzing the panels.
