Different Garage Door Panel Damages

Your garage door panels can suffer from either natural deterioration or accidents. They may bend, break, or become dented due to various reasons.

Bent panels can result from strong impacts such as debris. Garage door panels can also bend if you have an off-track roller and you forced your door to open or close.

If the impact is strong, your panels will not just dent but break. Severe accidents can also leave your garage door panels in bad shape. Common causes include when your car crashes into your door or when a tree falls.

Minor impacts can dent your panels. This includes weak collisions from sports balls, rocks, and solid precipitation like hails and sleets.

Weather conditions can cause your metal garage door panels to rust. Rain and moisture in the air can cause your door to oxidize and rust. If you have old garage door panels, corrosion may be more evident.
