Garage door replacement.? A little while ago I was riding a dirt bike around a friends driveway and when i pressed the front brake the throttle went back and I drove right into the garage. It damaged the bottom left panel. I am responsible to pay for it and was wondering if it could be repaired. I live in Berkeley, California, and the garage door is made of composite.
It is a Jeld-Wen Amarr door. Feel free to ask any questions about it.
admin You will probably replace the entire bottom panel…from the left side all the way across to the end right panel garage doors are usually made up of 3 or for long panels…that are hinged together…an expert carpenter can probably replace just that end panel… Then hopefully match the paint…compare price’s.

admin Many garage door openers use a big plastic gear as a safety mechanism. If the door meets an obstruction, the gear strips. Take the cover off and if you see a lot of white powder, thats the cause.You can buy replacement gears easily and they don’t take very long to put in.The gear is supposed to be greased frequently but nobody ever does and this is what eventually happens.

admin They are special springs that are sized to the door. If you have never replaced these springs before it would be safer for you to find someone who has to do it for you. Most large hardware stores keep them in stock.
