When Should I Replace My Garage Door?brentwood garage doors

Brentwood TN garage doors are our specialty because a properly functioning and attractive garage door is an important part of a home’s appearance. Many Brentwood homeowners ignore this essential piece of equipment until it becomes unusable or even dangerous. There are several factors to consider, such as safety, efficiency and appearance when deciding if it’s time to replace your garage door.

The first time I used them, they were able to schedule me for the next morning. They called ahead to let me know how far away he was. The window between the hours was short, so I didn't have to wait all morning and he was on the early side. He called personally when he

We had a new garage door installed. They knew exactly what they were doing and I liked them. They cleaned up very nicely when they were done and took away the old garage door.

Safety issues

A garage door that does not operate properly is not just inconvenient. It is truly a safety hazard to you and your family. Almost every garage door today includes safety features, including sensors, which detect the presence of a person or object that could be injured or damaged if the garage door closes on it. Small children or pets in particular are in danger of being seriously injured or killed if they become trapped under a closed garage door. Sensors can malfunction and some older or cheaper doors may have sensors that don’t work at all.

Anyone can be injured by a garage door. The torsion springs that do the primary work of raising and lowering the garage door have an incredible amount of pressure stored in their coils. If these springs suddenly break, the force can seriously injure an adult working on them. Cables are another component of the garage door’s operating system that can hurt a do-it-yourselfer if they happen to snap under tension.

Efficient operation

When a garage door operates efficiently and smoothly, it’s practically unnoticeable. Homeowners come to appreciate a door that opens and closes immediately and quietly. When your garage door starts to squeak or rattle when it opens and closes, it may be time to think about replacing it. It’s possible that the components simply need to be lubricated, but often the door has passed the point at which it can be repaired. A professional garage door company can help you determine whether replacement is the best option for you.

Just as more frequent breakdowns indicate that it’s likely you’ll need to replace your car, a garage door that starts malfunctioning often can signal the end of its useful life. When you have to spend more time and money repairing your garage door than you’d like, it might very well be time to replace it rather than continuing to maintain the current door.


Like your front door and your landscaping, your garage door is part of your home’s curb appeal. A door with faded or peeling paint, or one that clashes with architectural style upgrades you’ve done on your home, can be a real eyesore. You can easily find a garage door style that works well with your home’s overall appearance. When you’re ready to sell your home, the garage door can help draw buyers to your property.

A garage door can improve your property’s value in several other ways as well. A door that offers improved insulation will help lower heating and cooling costs for a room above it or a work area inside the garage. Today’s electronic garage door openers also provide better home security options thanks to coding options that make it practically impossible to decipher the code that opens the door.
