When It Might Be Time For A Garage Door Replacement

It’s not very often that a garage door will simply stop working “out of the blue.” More than likely, the door or opener have demonstrated signs that they’re deteriorating or about to fail. Knowing what to look out for can go a long way in avoiding an emergency repair or replacement.

Here are a few telltale signs that you may need to replace your garage door in the near future.


The door is loud or noisy when opening and closing

If your door makes scraping, grinding or rattling sounds when it’s opened or closed, your opener may be starting to burn out. Believe it or not, garage door openers are supposed to be rather quiet! If your opener is more than 10 years old, or is making strange noises, it may be time for a replacement.


The door will occasionally fail to open

If your door seems to randomly “choose” when to open and not open, you may have a wiring or electrical issue. Minor wiring problems can sometimes be repaired, but advanced damage or frequent failure will likely require a new opener.


The door will not open or close at all

If your door simply won’t open or close no matter how many times you press the keypad, and you’ve ruled out any electrical issues, you more than likely have a dead motor and will need a new door opener.

Be aware that not all garage door malfunctions are related to a faulty opener. There are many ways the door itself can become damaged and in need of replacement. Time, weather damage, animal damage or normal wear and tear can weaken a door and make it less effective. If you notice your door is no longer closing all of the way, or is damaged to the point that it can no longer keep out the elements and other unwanted visitors, it’s time for a garage door replacement!

My wife had a spring break on our large door when she was trying to leave for work so on my way back home to help my wife get out I called Lifetime door and left a message. On my way back to work they returned my message to get the details and said that they could get a tech out that afternoon which I was fine with. By the time I got back to work Jay the service tech called me and said that he could be out in about an hour which was excellent. He got they about 9am and replaced both springs on the large door adjusted the opener settings and the safety eyes and lubed the wheels he also did the same to the smaller door and was done with the entire job in about an hour. Jay was professional on the phone and explained thoroughly what was done, excellent service and would Lifetime Door for your garage door needs.

Had 5 garage doors installed in 3/2020 that were making some noise. Cole came out and took care of the noise - they even waived a service fee despite being past warranty - they really stood behind their workmanship!

Our installer, Kyle was so respectful, and professional! He did an amazing job installing our new garage doors. We previously had Haas garage doors that were 20 years old and only had to be replaced because of hail damage. They held up amazing through the years. The new doors are so beautiful and look like high end wood doors. Very satisfied!
LIfetime Door Company installed a new garage door 10 years ago. They also installed a new garage door opener last year. We were pleased with both jobs. A cable broke and I needed to get it fixed within hours to be able to get my car out of the garage for an important appointment. I contacted the office, explained my situation and within an hour new cables were put in. Service man was experienced, quick and efficient. I felt the pricing was very reasonable. Thank you LIfetime.
