There are many different ways that an Ahwatukee garage door can get damaged. Most of the time when you’re dealing with a garage door situation, you’re going to end up having to call a professional like Mr Garage Door Repair. Many garage door repairs are two man jobs, and they can actually be pretty dangerous if they’re not handled properly. However one of the few repairs that can be done by a good handyman without too much worry are replacing damaged or old door panels and installing new ones.

This is a multi-step process, and you need to make sure that you don’t skip any part of it. This is not the type of work you want to begin and then stop half way through the job. Ideally you still want two people for this job since you are going to need to concentrate on drilling. It’s also far easier to properly set up the two vice grips and a “come-along” to spread the door panels apart.

Once you have these tools, you need to measure out the length and height of each of these panels so you can have those measurements for the replacements. You need to make sure they’re from the same manufacturer if you want to be absolutely certain that the replacements will fit.

The early part of the process is heavily based on safety. You want the springs removed so there not just sitting there, tensed up, waiting for one wrong move before suddenly lashing out and hurting anyone within a few feet. Safety comes first! Make sure everything is disconnected that could possibly lash out, snap, or do anything that could cause pain.

Once everything is set up, you can then remove the individual panels and set them up properly in order to make sure your new garage looks great!
