Garage Door Panel Replacement

Accidentally bang your car into your garage door? Don’t sweat it – it’s easy to replace that damaged panel. Here’s how:

Remove Old Panel(s)

Every garage door panel is attached to two things: to the other door panels (via hinges) and to the guide track (via hinge brackets, which carry the track rollers). You will need to detach your panel from both of these. Before trying to remove your panel, you will need to make room for it to be removed. To do this, either remove the top panel from the door or use a come-a-long to spread the panels apart. Unscrew the hinges on the damaged panel(s) to remove it from the door.

Install The Replacement Panel

To install a new garage door panel, perform the instructions above in reverse. First, slide the new panel into the empty slot and attach the hinges and hinge brackets w/ rollers on each side. Next, slide the top panel back in and re-attach it; or, release the come-a-long to bring the door panels back together. Finally, open the garage door and reattach the spring.

Re-Finish the Door

Because garage door panels often change appearance due to weathering, replacing a door panel often means that you will have to re-paint or re-finish your garage door (all of it) to make it look right. So, be prepared for a weekend of painting if you want a beautiful result!
