Lifespan of a garage door

The lifespan of a garage door is around 20 years if it is properly maintained. Keeping your garage door in good shape will extend its life.

In order to help you determine when your garage door needs to be repaired or replaced, we've assembled a guide.

• Age of door

Typically, garage doors last between ten and twenty years. Certain situations may, however, call for replacing rather than repairing. Older doors will require replacement sooner rather than later, so repairing one that is nearing the end of its life may not be worthwhile. Based on the age of your door, our team can identify and provide options. Always put your family's needs first and we'll guide you accordingly! 

• Damage caused by wear and tear

You may need to replace your garage door if you fail to clear outdoor debris from it over the years.  It is possible for your door to become warped or discolored due to natural elements. Additionally, moisture and temperature fluctuations can also damage a door's springs and openers. Heat and humidity in Florida can cause garage doors to deteriorate over time. It is for this reason that a professional inspection and maintenance are crucial to the overall integrity of your door. Over 10 years old AND your garage door is half the cost of a replacement, it's best to replace it.

• Concerns regarding safety

Lastly, if your garage door begins to malfunction or operate unsafely, it's best to replace it. In some cases, a repair is necessary. We can realign your garage door sensors, replace your springs, and update your garage door's remote control technology. The use of outdated internal technology can put your family's safety at risk. A garage door opener, remote control, garage door lock, or a garage door sensor that is not working. It makes more sense to replace the entire system when the internal technology is poor.
