Garage Door Panel Repair
It is certainly not fun at all when you have a garage door issue. For homeowners, this usually means having trouble with getting their car out to go to work.

What Are Garage Door Panels?
Garage door panels are basically what the door is made out of. Usually, garage doors have a frame that is made from some form of metal. Then this frame is going to be filled in with panels. They are known as panels because they are fundamentally separate pieces that make up the door itself. They are what is going to be facing outward in your door. Therefore, they tend to be the “part” of the door that gets the most wear and tear.
Types Of Garage Door Panels
There are actually many different types of panels. You could potentially create a custom panel, if you wanted to. For the most part, though, there are certain types of panels that you are going to see used consistently. Keep in mind that, same panel “types” can be made from totally different materials. These main panel types include:
These particular panels are usually placed horizontally on doors. Often, what you see are smaller blocks that are connected to create the door. When we say “smaller,” we mean they are not as tall as they are wide. Garage doors are made up of more panels with this style.
It’s pretty much the same concept that we just mentioned. Yet, these panels are usually taller, so; you will use fewer panels to put together the door.
Again, the concept is basically the same. Here though, it is pretty much a door with a single very large panel instead of smaller ones put together. The first example is a door made from many smaller panels that are set up horizontally. The second example is the same thing, but with larger panels. L-panels can be set up horizontally or vertically. That is another main difference.
Of course, there are other types of panels. These same panels can come in different kinds of designs, colors, or even be made of different materials. The concept though, is virtually the same.

Are Garage Door Panels Interchangeable?
There is a bit of yes and no answer to this question. If you have a door that was designed with custom panels, it is going to be harder to find a replacement. If you bought the whole door directly from one specific manufacturer, it could be easier. All that you would need to do is get a hold of this company. Since, it can get difficult to find exact replacements for these panels, we tend to try and repair them. Of course, if the door went through a significant incident, (such as a car crashing into it), there is less chance of a repair being possible. If that happens to be the case, we are going to be able to offer other types of solutions. If the frame is salvageable, then, we may just suggest a full panel replacement.
