Repair or replace the garage door

New Garage Door Staten Island

The question whether to repair or to replace the garage door, is something we need to deal with almost on a daily base during our garage door services in Staten Island New York. The problem with the question if to repair or to completely replace the overhead door is that there is no simple straight forward answer to the question, and to give a professional, and the right answer, require that one of our garage door specialist in Staten island will check the door, inspect the condition of the door, and only then he will be able to answer the question if to repair the current garage door in Staten Island to completely remove the current one, and to install a new overhead door. And even after we check the door, it is not easy to determine what the best decision will be, and to answer that, we need to consult with the customer and together, after we have all the variables to make a decision. The good part is that we can do both. We repair garage doors in Staten Island, and we also install new overhead doors.

Is repairing the garage door is the cheapest option?

Some garage door owners, and it can be owner of a broken garage door in Brooklyn, or owner of a garage door in Staten Island, insist assume that repairing the existing garage door is necessarily the best decision.  Many times while servicing overhead doors in Staten Island, we are getting calls to service old garage door, which was installed 30 years ago, and not once more than that. Now let’s make it clear: Some people have sentimental values for the garage door they own in Staten Island, and they don’t want to even consider replacing the door, since it is important for them that the same door will remain installed. One time we had a customer for garage door repairs in Staten Island, who had an old wooden garage door that the father built and installed more than 40 years ago. And that particular customer insisted that we will repair the door, no matter what the cost will be.
Even that repairing the door cost him as much as a completely new high quality garage door,  we repaired the door and renovate it, and by the end of the project (which we really enjoyed by the way), he had the same garage door, and it was working and looked as good as new.  And more important, the garage door was safe to use, like every garage door we service in Staten Island should be.
But this is one case out of many. Most people want to save money, and they are not sure what will be the right decision for them is. So we would like to make it clear and simple: Even if the door is repairable, fixing garage door in Staten Island isn’t always the cheapest decision.

But if the garage door in Staten Island is rotten, have many broken parts (especially when it comes to broken panels, tracks or the garage door frame), then maybe it is better for you to consider to replace the whole garage door.  A new overhead door will probably cost you less than it would cost you to repair the door, but if you look at it as an investment for many years since garage door in Staten Island installed by us can easily last for 40 years and more, you may find that repairing the current is the right choice for you.
