This February has been crazy with warm temperatures and with warm temperatures we start to think of all the great things that spring and summer bring to Minnesota. Grilling outside, watching baseball, and the smell of fresh cut grass and bonfires in the air.

They decided to go with a custom order Special Reserve Garage Door with stockbridge windows; the door turned out fabulous and really improves the way the house looks from the road.

Difference between Custom Orders and Stock Options

When choosing a new Garage Door we often talk about different things like panel style, window options, straps and handles, and different color options; these are many of our common stock doors that we install on a regular basis. However we also have some custom order options available as well if you are looking for something more than just a standard steel door. We have options that have wood panel overlays, smoked or feather etched windows, and larger panels to have a three panel door which ends up looking more like a carriage door.

New Garage Door Replacement in Crystal, MN

new-doorAt Garage Door Repair Company we often talk about having your Garage Door and Garage Door Opener inspected to perform any preventative maintenance so that you can avoid any headaches in the future. Sometimes we find that it has gotten to the point where you may just want to replace the entire Garage Door. This was the case for one of our customers in Crystal, MN; they had moved in to their home within the last year but had inherited a cheap sub-par Garage Door. Initially the door worked fine for them but over time it started to jam when closing and even the panels began to crack. We explained to the customer that we could repair the door to the point of getting it functional again but there was nothing we could do about the cracks that were forming on the panels and it would only get worse. They opted to have the door replaced completely and now have peace of mind that they have a quality Garage Door for years to come.

Dented Garage Door Panel Replacement Coon Rapids MN

Dented Garage Door PanelWe all know that accidents can happen at any time, it happens quite often in the Garage Door Repair field. One of our most recent customers had someone run into their garage door. This caused the bottom section to bow as well as left a dent on the front of the door. The homeowner didn’t want to have to replace the entire garage door so we were able to track down the exact section needed for replacement. We were also able to take care of a few minor issues with the garage door to ensure smooth operation for years to come.

Is it cheaper to replace a panel vs replacing the entire door?

In most cases panel replacement will be the cheaper option, however if multiple panels have damage it may be worth the extra money to just replace it entirely. Also one other thing to consider is how old the door is. If your door is older the paint has likely faded, when the new section is installed it will likely not patch since the paint finish will be new. This can however be fixed by re-painting the entire garage door. Every scenario is different which is why we always offer all of our customers free estimates. This allows us to give you options on repair and replacement so you can make the best choice for your home.

How do I know what type of panel I need?

There are many different types and models of garage doors. The easiest way to determine what kind of door you have is by looking on the side of the garage door. There is typically a sticker with manufacturers information on exact make, model, and size. This can be very helpful if your trying to track down a part or panel. Here is a list of the most common types of garage doors:

  • North Central
  • Haas
  • Clopay
  • Wayne Dalton
  • Amarr
  • Door Link
  • CHI
  • Hormann
