Renewing Aging Wood, Steel or Fiberglass Doors

We’re often asked by our Carrollton customers when it’s time to consider renewing their garage doors. Many factors determine if refurbishing an older door is an option over replacement. Let’s take a look at how to tell if an aging door can be renewed or if it’s time for an upgrade.

Wood Steel or Fiberglass Doors

Is Your Door Still Secure?

It’s important that your garage door provides security for your home and belongings. If the panels are warped, cracks have developed or locks no longer function properly, it may be past time for refurbishing. Wood doors are more susceptible to weathering over decades which can compromise the integrity of the door. Fiberglass and steel doors have a longer lifespan but if old, the rolling hardware and locks need to be in good working order.

Energy Efficiency Considerations

Older wood and steel panel doors were not designed with the same level of insulation as doors today. This means higher electric bills to heat or cool the garage space. Fiberglass is a better insulator but aging can cause cracks and gaps where air can penetrate. For Carrollton homeowners, replacing or renewing with an insulated steel door can boost energy efficiency to cut costs long term.

Appearance and Curb Appeal

Beyond function, your garage door is a prominent visual feature of your home’s facade. Faded or flaking paint and rusted metal can diminish the curb appeal. Renewing can bring back like-new aesthetics through refinishing or replacing panels on wood or steel doors. For fiberglass, sanding and re-coating the surface can restore a vibrant color.

Rolling Mechanisms

The system of springs, cables and tracks that rolls your door open and closed takes a lot of stress over the years. Worn parts can cause performance issues, jamming or safety concerns. An inspection by our technicians determines which components need servicing or upgrading for reliable operation. Rusty or damaged tracks especially should be addressed to avoid more serious problems down the road.

Is Refurbishment or Replacement Better?

Each situation is unique, but as a general guideline:

Wood doors 20+ years old often cannot be effectively refurbished and replacement is recommended. Renewing is an option for high-quality wood 10-20 years old.

Fiberglass and steel panel doors can usually be refurbished if less than 15-20 years old with new rollers, tracks and freshly painted surfaces.

Damage from weather, age or lack of past maintenance usually necessitates replacement over refurbishing even on somewhat younger doors.

An evaluation helps make the smart choice for your Carrollton home and budget whether to refurbish components or fully upgrade your garage door. Integrity Garage Door Repair provides honest assessments to determine the best renewal or replacement solution.


A properly refurbished door with new or refreshed parts can gain 5-10 more years of serviceability depending on material type and past maintenance history. Regular upkeep is still needed to maximize the lifespan.

Replacement doors and installation often costs significantly more than refurbishing depending on the extent of work needed. A new garage door range from $800-2500+ installed while refurbishing can be $300-800 on average.
