Garage doors are a very important part of your property. They provide security, regulate temperature, and much more for your garage. As time goes on, wear and tear on your garage door can take its toll. We’ve compiled this list of signs that it might be time to replace your garage door.

Your Garage Door Is Damaged

If your garage door has dents or is starting to get warped, it may be time to think about replacing it. Over the years it may accumulate quite a bit of accidental damage from vehicle collisions, weather damage, and much more.

Damaged Garage Doors

Speed Decrease

Garage doors don’t move particularly fast, to begin with, but if you notice your garage door opening and closing particularly slow, that’s a sign that it’s time to replace it. The motor will wear out over time just from regular use.


Your garage door may start to make strange noises or shake when opening and closing. This is a sign that serious maintenance may be needed in the near future. Rather than pouring money into an outdated door, why not replace it with a brand new door!

Aged Design

If your garage door looks antique without you having to try, and you didn’t intend for it to look like that, it may be time for a new garage door. You don’t need an old rickety garage door if you can have a better one that will only increase curb appeal.
