American Garage Door - Blog


Many garage doors built and installed throughout the Greater New Orleans region are known to last for decades. But it's not uncommon for our neighbors in the region to notice, over time, individual hardboard panels begin to bow, despite the rest of their garage door being in seemingly pristine condition.

Does that mean you have to replace your entire garage door, just because some of the panels need some work? There was a time when the answer was yes. In fact, it was once believed that deteriorating garage door panels signified a larger problem - that the door's stiles and rails were in need of major repair. In other words, a few deteriorating panels meant you had to get an entirely new garage door, which can be incredibly pricey.

But that is no longer the case, thanks to the work we do at American Garage Door of Louisiana.

Here at American Garage Door, we are unique in our repair work in that we can, in fact, replace single wood panels on most models of garage doors. This comes as an incredible surprise - and relief - to most of our customers. We've helped our customers save hundreds, and often thousands, of dollars by replacing singular panels on garage doors we deem as safe and operational.

When replacing panels on garage doors, one of the first things we do is inspect the entire unit and mechanisms. We want to make sure that the wear and tear on the panels is not visible elsewhere. Once our inspection is complete, we'll provide you with all of your options, from simple panel-replacement work to a complete renovation of your garage door.

While we'll offer our own personal recommendations, in the end the decision is up to you. Regardless of your choice, we'll guarantee that the work we do will help your garage door regain its optimal performance and safety.

Why we might recommend a complete garage door replacement

Our goal is to help you solve your garage door issues with the quickest, least expensive, yet most effective solution. However, there are times when we will recommend a complete garage door replacement, including:

  • If we deem your entire unit in disrepair, where renovations would be just as costly (if not more) than a replacement
  • If we believe your home would benefit from a different material that is weather resistant
  • If your existing system does not offer modern safety features, such as pinch-resistance and an automatic reversing mechanism

Whenever we tell our clients throughout New Orleans, Mandeville, Covington and beyond that we can replace single panels rather than an entire garage door, their responses fill us with excitement and purpose. We got into this business to help our neighbors throughout the region care for their homes, families, and prized possessions. We think this unique approach to garage door maintenance sets us apart from the pack.
