Garage Door Panel Replacement
Garage door panels are more noticeable than other garage door parts when the same parts are damaged. That’s because of the huge surface area that panels occupy.
Hence, if there are any dents, corrosion, bends, or gaps on your door panels, people will immediately notice them.
Consequently, your garage door will adversely affect your curb appeal and property value. Furthermore, these physical defects may worsen and affect the performance of your garage. If you don’t repair the panels, you might end up unable to use your garage door at all.
At Slick Garage Doors, our certified technicians know how to effectively fix your damaged door panels.
First, we will try the usual solution to damaged panels – garage door panel replacement.
It would be unwise to install a new door if you have only one or two damaged panels. Hence, panel replacement is more common than entire garage door replacement since it’s more cost-effective and practical.

Different Garage Door Panel Damages
Garage door panels depreciate after many years of protecting your garage. As time goes by, the impairments and defects will become more conspicuous. Listed below are the common causes of panel damages that may affect your door.
If your garage door is old, it will look rundown even if you constantly maintain it. That’s because all the impacts it has endured over the years have already aggregated.
Hence, your garage door panels will look shabby and dilapidated. That indicates that you should replace your garage door right away.
External weather conditions can damage your garage door. The moisture and rain can cause rusting while extreme heat can fade your garage door paint.
Strong winds can result in bent panels, especially when the door is off-track. Large hailstones, on the other hand, can cause large dents on the door panel surface.
Every homeowner tries to be careful about their garage door panel. However, accidents happen. And when they do, you could have impaired garage door panels.
Consider yourself lucky if your garage door simply got dented and only one or two panels are damaged. However, strong impacts from massive objects can leave you with bent and broken panels.
Panel Replacement vs Garage Door Replacement
If you have a garage door panel that’s out of shape, you should first determine the age of your door and the extent of the damage.
Once you have this information, you’ll know whether you need panel replacement or new garage door installation. Most of the time, a garage door panel replacement will restore the appearance of your garage door. That’s the case if the damage affected only a few panels.
However, in severe cases where most panels, if not all, are damaged, then you would benefit more from replacing your entire garage door. Other instances where new garage door installation is applicable are the following:
- Your garage door nears the end of its lifespan.
- You want to improve the appearance and energy efficiency of your home.
- You’re planning to increase your property’s value.
- No garage door panels are available since you have a discontinued garage door.
- The cost of replacing your garage door panels is higher than installing a new door.
If you encounter any of these problems, don’t hesitate to contact our professional team. Our certified technicians will efficiently and correctly install new panels for your garage door.
