We understand that a new garage door is a significant investment, and we want you to not only be happy with the way your door looks, but to also feel confident that it will be reliable for years to come.

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.

R

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.

R

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.

R

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!

100% would recommend! I was recommended to this company, and called them to replace the spring for my garage door. Everything about my experience was extremely professional! They called when they said they would to set up a time, they arrived exactly at the time they set up, they completed the job quicker than expected, and the gentleman who did the work was VERY helpful with answering my questions and just giving me general knowledge how to care for my garage door. He even saw a minor problem that he fixed without adding to the cost because he said it was an easy fix. On top of all that, my dog loved the guy, so what more confirmation would I need to trust them. I would absolutely recommend Lifetime Doors to anyone looking for garage door repair/replacement and fully plan to call them up with future needs in that area!

There was a problem with the color of a new door for a garage addition matching an old door I had purchased a few years ago. They took care of the problem. Very happy with the way they handled the situation.

I had a good experience with Lifetime up until they ordered and installed the wrong door. I called them and reported the mistake and the door panels were received 2 weeks later and they fit me into their swamped scheduled! New panels to be installed tomorrow!!

Lifetime came as a referral from a family member who used them 40 plus years ago, wow! I have to admit, at first I was a little thrown off by Lifetimes "style". I dealt with 5 different people, but they all knew what was going on. I didn't think they provided a lot of information or explanation with any step of the process but as we got other quotes I knew what to ask. It's not a secretive or dishonest approach, just very to the point and if you don't ask maybe they assume you know. While their pricing was not a detailed itemization on some fancy form just a lump sum number it was $1000-$1300 less than the other quotes for I think a little better product and their choices greater. Their turn around was half the time of the other companies (maybe even quicker). Installers were very friendly and efficient. Both the estimators and installers were very timely with the appointment windows. We did run into one problem that the other companies brought up during their estimates due to the shape of our door frame. The lifetime installer pointed out that there was going to be this same issue (which I brought up that the other companies mentioned this) but then he made adjustments that did not completely eliminate but greatly reduced the issue and we are satisfied. Our doors are quiet and smooth and it looks like a completely different house.

I stopped in to their facility to buy a replacement weatherstrip for my 2003 door. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The front office and showroom were clean and organized. They were able to look up the original installation in the database to make sure I was going to be given the correct part. They loaded the 18 foot monster into my van for me and I was on my way. Top notch customer service!

Josh and Derick did a fantastic job installing our new door. I am impressed with Lifetime Door. We bought our home seven years ago and the original door was nine years old. This door is better in every way. Quieter, insulated windows, and runs smoother. Nice job! I also would give ten stars. **********

This place is a class act. From the initial call to the final payment they were always on time and fulfilled every promise. I had them install 4 large commercial garage doors and not only did they do a great job but they were also the most affordable quote I received. One thing that particularly stood out for me was when I inquired about upgrading to another model they informed me that in my situation it would be a waste of money. The fact that they could have easily sold me more expensive doors but recommended against it really said something about the way they run their operation. I am very pleased with the whole experience and I wouldn't consider any one else for anything overhead door related.

We're building a home and just purchased from Lifetime Door for the second time. The staff is always helpful and their prices are good (we got ALOT of other quotes). They had a great selection of door colors (we were looking for a dark door which other places either didn't have or was only available in a custom door). Installation was fast and they did a great job!

Lifetime was the original installer of my current garage doors. Quality job. After I backed into one of the doors with my Jeep, I called Lifetime for a repair estimate. They came by 2 days later and we had a full discussion of options. The repair was delayed 3 1/2 weeks, because the foam-core steel doors I had required some order lead-time. The install/repair -- which involved replacing the track on both the left and right side of the garage opening, and 2 of the 4 door panels -- took ~ 90 minutes. John was great, discussing the repairs and advising me on how to best conduct preventive maintenance - on all aspects of the door and operating mechanism - into the future. Very pleased with both the repair, and the overall experience.Would definitely recommend Lifetime Door.

Quick and friendly installation. My new door was installed within 2 weeks of ordering it (I had ordered one with windows). My installer Dave took about 2 hours to do it himself. Door looks and works great! I would recommend this company if you are looking for a new garage door.

Mike M called in the morning to let me know when he'd arrive. He showed up on time and completed the garage door opener installation as expected. He was polite and friendly. He even checked out our 2 other openers installed by the company a few years ago and lubed them. He reprogramed all remotes for the 3 openers. Great service!!!

I have depended on Liftime Door Co. for over 20 years to install and service my garage doors. The installer was prompt, courteous, and efficient. The Liftmaster product was better than I expected. I will continue to patronize Lifetime. In addition, this company has provided the best price compared to many other garage door companies in my area.
