Like every element of your house, a garage door will start to show signs of age over time. Whether you backed up a little too close and scuffed the paint with your car, or years of wear and tear have caused the paint to dull and flake, it seems like the garage door you first purchased has lost its luster. While you’re sure that something needs to be done about the door, you might be wondering whether it’s worth the time and effort it takes to repaint it. Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether to repaint your garage door or just replace it altogether with the help of a qualified garage door contractor.
Consider the Time Investment
Repainting a garage door is a relatively simple job, but it’s one that does take a bit of time to get right. You need to make sure the paint either matches the original, or matches the palette of your house to make sure you’re making it as attractive as possible, especially if you plan to sell the house someday. You also need to make sure you’ve got the time to get the job done properly, as a bad paint job can be even worse than no paint job at all.
Do You Need a Touch-Up or a Whole New Look?
Is the garage door still functioning properly, or has it aged so much that the motor is starting to die? Is it just the paint that needs fixing, or are there significant dents or broken windows? If the garage door still functions properly and still looks good structurally, then it’s worth it to repaint it. If not, you might be better off replacing it entirely.
