Is it Time for a New Garage Door?

We can repair or replace just about any part of your garage door, but at a certain point investing in a new door just makes more sense, both financially and for convenience’s sake. Here are 4 reasons to consider replacing your garage door.

 

Damage

Maybe the new driver in your home had a little accident with your door. Or windy weather threw a tree branch into it. Even temperature fluctuations can warp or disfigure your door. Garage doors are tough, but life-shortening damage can happen for any number of strange and unexpected reasons.

We’re happy to replace or repair parts of a door, so call us to check out the extent of the damage. Unfortunately, sometimes time and wear could beat up your door enough to compromise its functionality. If something has significantly damaged your door, sometimes the best recourse is to replace it entirely.

Look

Peeling and cracking paint, warping, sagging, bent sections, or flopping unattached rubber seals can all make your garage door look worn and outdated. And when your garage door looks worn and outdated, your home ends up looking worn and outdated.

The average garage door opens and closes 1500 times a year. Over time, this heavy use starts to show. Over a long enough period, constant use can even affect how your door works. A new door wouldn’t just work great; it would look great too. These days, there are hundreds of garage door and accessory choices, too. You can choose the style and functionality that works perfectly for you. Look at these options for fresh, new garage doors.

 

Not Functioning

If your door’s isn’t working the way it should, have a Metro Garage Door technician come to diagnose the problem. Our techs will let you know if your door poses a safety risk or cannot be repaired in an acceptable way.

Once they’ve identified the problem, those same techs can fix it. They’re even prepared to help you set up a free consultation to look at new door options.

Curb Appeal

Every neighborhood has one: the house with has the amazing new exterior paint job, impressive landscaping… and a bland, old, mismatched garage door. The average garage door takes up 30-50% of a home’s exterior. Don’t underestimate what a difference a new garage door could make in improving your home’s resale value. When looking at overall curb appeal, studies repeatedly find that replacing the garage door gives one of the highest returns on investment.

 

Countless options for door style, color, material, windows, and other hardware or accessories mean that a new door can be completely customized. You get the look, style, and functionality that’s right for your home.

What People Are Saying About Metro Garage Doors

Top Rated Garage Door Company in Minneapolis – St. Paul, but don’t take our word for it…
Very happy experiences with Metro Door. We've used them before, to install a new opener and for repairs from backing into the door. Always prompt, professional, friendly, and reasonably priced. This time, we needed to replace a 30-year-old opener on our seldom-used small door. After analyzing our situation, the technician, Randy, provided a much better strategy -- moving the 5-year-old opener to the small door and installing the new opener on the big door (the one we use all the time). This also allowed us to install a really quiet belt-driven opener on the big door. Thanks Randy! Great experience all around.

I had a new garage door installed. My initial garage door had a weird problem -- it opened by itself! Our technician came out and was just fantastic. He replaced the opener (the maker of the opener, for instance, tried to send me a part that I could replace on a week-old opener). They fully replaced the opener and the wire and it works great. And Randy was exceedingly professional and helped me understand everything. Great service.

Outstanding service and great pricing! My garage door flipped out and luckily someone referred me to this firm. From the minute they answered my call until the door was fixed, they were simply great. Very prompt, courteous and very trustworthy. The tech was Dana and he was just wonderful answering all my questions and making excellent suggestions. The door has never operated so well and so quiet!. Thanks again for a great job.
