What to Expect When Replacing Garage Door Panels

Garage door panels play a big part not only in the way your garage door operates, but also in your home’s overall aesthetic. Over time, wear and tear, accidents, or harsh weather can impact how they look and work.

At Precision, we help you choose the best panel replacement option for your home, budget, and personal taste.

Is Panel Replacement a Good Option for You?

Single garage door panels can become discolored with age, cracked, or bent in an accident. It’s sometimes possible to replace one panel – and per HomeAdvisor, garage door panel replacement cost is usually around $350 to $1500 – but replacing the entire garage door can be more cost-effective in the long run.

Here are a few reasons why:

  • Replacing just one or a few panels can result in a mismatched appearance, impacting the overall visual appeal of your property. This typically happens with older garage doors.
  • If your garage door panels are showing signs of damage or wear, chances are other components of the door might also be aging. By replacing the entire door, you ensure that all parts are in optimal condition, minimizing the likelihood of future repairs.
  • Modern garage doors often come with improved insulation properties, helping regulate indoor temperatures and potentially reduce heating and cooling costs.


  • While individual panel replacement might seem cheaper upfront, the cumulative costs of multiple replacements can add up quickly. Opting for a new door ensures you won’t face repeated repair expenses in the near future.
  • If one of your panels was damaged by impact from something like a vehicle, it’s important to schedule an appointment with Precision as soon as possible. Even damage that appears minor could impact your entire garage door system and compromise its safety.

Can I Replace a Panel Myself?

DIY panel replacement may save you labor costs in the short term, but it’s not something we recommend. Since panel damage may indicate a much larger problem with your garage door (especially damage from impact), it’s essential to have your door inspected by a pro.

Any work you do yourself also isn’t protected by a warranty. If something goes wrong, or the panel is installed incorrectly, you’re on the hook for any damage that occurs.

At Precision, we back our work with an industry-leading warranty to give homeowners peace of mind that the work will be done safely and correctly.

“Excellent customer service all around. My cable cords got bunched up after I accidentally hit my garage door backing up (oops, thankfully no major damage) and I was able to call and have someone come out the same day. Johnny was excellent! I will definitely use them again for any garage needs in the future.” – Jori S.
“Precision was quick to get a technician out to fix my garage door. He came on time and fixed the broken spring on my garage quickly and efficiently. He provided me options, but was not pushy. The advice was given in a professional manner from a knowledgeable service man. I would recommend Precision Garage Door Service and will call them for any future needs.” – Kathy K.
