Replace vs Repair – Which is Better?

When it comes to our home, we sometimes battle with whether or not certain aspects are worth replacing or if a simple repair will do the trick. One of these areas may be your garage doors and with the elements over the past few months being at their harshest, yours may have been hit quite hard and looking a little worse for wear.

We at Berkshire Garage Doors are here to help you make a decision as to whether repairing your garage doors are actually more cost-effective or if replacing them is actually the better choice in the long run. By reading through the following points, you may come to some clarity.

Broken Doors:

If your garage doors are showing signs of damage whether this is through general wear or due to other reasons, then security may be an issue for you and replacing these may be the better solution. If there is damage to the lock or rollers, a simple repair may be a more sensible solution.

Aesthetic Damage:

If the look of your doors is bringing the rest of your house down, then determine what you are looking for. If it is a whole new style, then it may well be worth replacing these with a new garage door in perhaps a different material or motion e.g wooden, steel or roller, sectional etc.

Of course, if a lick of paint may actually improve this and give you desired results, then call an expert such as ourselves on what to use to keep your garage doors in the best stead.

Automatic / Manual:

Of course, manual doors also appeal to a variety of people and therefore you would need to speak to an expert about swapping over.

So depending on your needs, replacing garage doors can be the more cost-effective solution, however, for smaller, minor repairs, there is no need to invest in replacing the whole front of your garage.
