How long should you take before you have a look at the garage door panel? Some people check it almost every other day, others check it almost every few days. Whichever of these you do, you just need to make sure that you check it out periodically. Like most of the other parts of the garage door, the garage door panel plans an important role in the design of your garage door. It is one of those parts that when working in a good condition, will make it easier for you to get the door open or closed, but when it becomes faulty, you will start having problems with the garage door. This is when garage door panel replacement will come in handy for you.
Of course if you have never done the replacement on your own before, or if you do not know how to do it, it would be wiser for you to get a professional and allow them to do this. It is common knowledge that garage doors need to be checked or at least replaced after every 10,000 openings, but what of the panels? Once you have had them installed and in use for at least 20 years, it is time for you to get a new pair. Most people do not really know this.
When you are moving into a new house, these are some of the first things that you need to check on. Find the contractor of the house and find out from them when the garage door was installed, then you can determine when the panels are due for replacement.
Whether you have flush panels, short raised panels, long raised panels or painted panels, you have to take good care of them, so that they can keep the main garage door in good condition.
