Can you fix a dented garage door?

As Dimension Garage Doors are Manchester's leading garage door company, we are passionate about educating our esteemed customers. Therefore we are giving away this little bit of free advice. Continue reading to discover if you can save money by sorting out your dented garage door.

Can You Fix a Dented Garage Door?

Dented garage doors can be fixed with a simple home remedy. Read on to find out how.

 

Garage doors are thick hunks of metal —  but any metal will dent if you hit it hard enough. If your garage door has suffered a significant dent, it’s important to reverse it quickly. A dented garage door will hamper the aesthetics of your home and diminish its kerb appeal. Trying to sell your house will be a struggle, as viewers may presume the interior is as poorly preserved as the garage.

 

Do I need to call a specialist?

 

Many professional garage door companies will tell you that the dent is irreparable without the magic hands of a specialist (and the fees of a specialist), but as a garage door company who prides themselves on transparency and customer service, we at Dimension Garage Doors are here to tell you that’s not the case. Just follow our tips and your door will be back to its best in no time.

 

How to fix an aluminium garage door:

 

For this remedy you will need the following:

 

  • A bucket of water
  • Washing up liquid
  • Sponge
  • A lighter
  • Tinfoil
  • Duster spray/compressed air

 

These items can all be found at general homeware/hardware stores.

 

  1. Mix a small amount of washing up liquid into a bucket of warm water. 
  2. Use a sponge to remove all dirt and grime from the dented area and leave to dry.
  3. Cut an amount of tinfoil large enough to cover the entire dent.
  4. Either hold the tinfoil in place with your hand or, for a safer option, fix it in place with tape. 
  5. Hold the light flame over the tinfoil for around one minute. This will transfer the heat to the dented area.
  6. Remove the foil and spray the duster spray/condensed air onto the dented area. We recommend holding the can upside down as you do this.

 

The sudden change in temperature will cause the dent to reverse and push itself back out. The dented aluminium should find its way back into its original position.
