How State 48 Garage Doors Can Help You With A Garage Door Panel Replacement!
Garage door panels are an integral part of a functioning garage door, and understanding what they are and what they do can help you maintain your garage door over the years. A common misconception is that the entire garage door opens and closes as one solid unit, when in fact it consists of individual panels connected with hinges. Therefore, when you open your garage door, it bends where each panel joins, allowing for smooth opening and closing operation. Understanding this concept and how it works helps you keep these moving parts maintained for years to come!
Do you suspect one of your garage door panels may need to be replaced? An immediate sign that replacement is necessary is if the panel is bent, cracked, or otherwise damaged. A single panel may be replaced if an exact match is found. However finding the exact door panel and matching the color can be very difficult. Here in Phoenix, with all the heat and UV rays beaming down, sun damage and fading often happens quickly to the garage door panels making it difficult to match a new panel to the old panel color! At State 48 Garage Doors, our technicians will routinely advise customers to replace all of their garage door panels so as to maintain an even look and feel for their home.
