Shall I Repair Or Replace My Garage Door?

Should you replace or repair?

Well, that is the question that we are here to try and help you answer. We will offer our advice to help you make the decision and are on hand to answer any questions that you might have.

How old is your garage door?

First, check how old your current garage door is. With some  high-quality garage door installers in Swindon, you may find that you have a warranty on it? Garage Door Rescue in Swindon, for example offers a lifetime guarantee on garage door cables so it’s definitely worth checking out this first.

Find a garage door repair and replacement expert

When deciding whether to repair or replace your Swindon garage door, we advise that you look for a local expert that can either carry out the repair or replace your garage door. A company that does both will be able to give you the right advice and suggest the most suitable course of action for you.

This is preferable to a company that just carries out repairs or a garage door retailer who will have a vested interest in selling you their services rather than offering the right solution.

A small repair may suffice

It may be that a small repair job will suffice for now. Perhaps it is something simple that fixes the issue and secures your garage door. It could be a temporary fix while you consider your options for a new garage door. You may just need a new cable or other garage door part which is a simple fix.

Consider your future plans

At this point it is worth considering your future plans. If this is a home that you are going to be in for a long while, and you make good use of your garage, then a long term solution may be to opt for a brand new garage door that adds something to your property aesthetically as well as functionally. If you are planning to sell your home, a new garage door may still be a good option to give your home greater kerb appeal. If you are in a hurry to sell your property, you may just want to patch it up with a repair.

If a new garage door is recommended

Perhaps, it is more cost effective to go for a new garage door rather than pouring money into a repair that will only see you through another six months. To help you make this decision, it is important to get the advice of honest experts that want the best for their customers.

Let’s assume that the advice is to look at a new garage door rather than repairing your existing one. There are so many different styles of garage door available that perhaps were not available when you originally had the garage door fitted. You may have just moved into the property and inherited the garage door.

The good news is that Garage Door Rescue stock an extensive range of options from garage door manufacturers including Garador, Henderson, Cardale and SWS to name but a few. With styles now available including automation, either on your existing door or on a new garage door you can be sure that they can provide the the right solution for you. You could go for a traditional up and over garage door or perhaps a newer style roller garage door. A new garage door will offer you maximum security with Garage Door Rescue offering the garage door defender system along with installation, often on the same day.

Securing your property

If your property allows it, you could also look at automated gates and security systems that will open when your car approaches your property. There are smart apps for phones to control the doors and gates at your property along with built-in cameras for your extra security. All this can be supplied in a free written quotation and some parts even benefit from a lifetime guarantee.
