    Are There any Risks Involved in Buying a Second Hand Garage Door?

    In the world of buying and selling used items, garage doors are no exception to the trend. However, considering a used garage door as a replacement for your existing one may not be the wisest decision. While the idea of saving money might be tempting, certain risks and drawbacks need to be considered before making a choice.

    Some garage door companies would advise to steer clear of purchasing a used garage door, and there are compelling reasons for this caution. Speaking with a garage door specialist is the best approach to understand the advantages of investing in a new garage door.

    If you feel you need to go second hand to save on money, then think again. At Chase Garage Doors, we have discount garage doors for sale, so getting a new garage door may not be nearly as expensive as you think. 


    What You Need to Know Before Buying a Second Hand Garage Door

    Wood garage doors may look stunning initially, but buying a used one poses specific challenges. Questions about the previous owner’s quality of care in maintenance, such as painting or refinishing, is important. Issues like warping and dry rot are potential risks, especially when the door has been exposed to the elements without proper care.

    If you are considering buying a used garage door for its promised insulation? Think again. Insulation, crucial for maintaining optimal environmental conditions inside the garage, may be outdated or missing in a used door. Without proper insulation, your garage could be vulnerable to extreme temperatures and high humidity, potentially harming stored belongings. 


    The Quality of Used Garage Door Springs

    Used garage doors often come as a complete package, including hardware like rails and springs. However, used springs can be problematic and unsafe. Given the tension under which garage door springs operate, it’s crucial to know their history. Worn springs can lead to serious injuries or accidents, posing a threat to you, your property, or loved ones.


    Used Garage Door Age and Warranty Considerations

    Finding out the age of a used garage door is useful, as wear and tear over time can affect garage doors in different ways depending on the materials they are made from. Even if a pre-owned door seems new and includes manufacturer documentation, you may ask yourself about why it wasn’t installed. Warranty issues further complicate matters; unlike new doors that come with guarantees, used garage doors are sold “as-is,” leaving buyers without protection in case of problems.

    Contrary to what DIY sites or reality shows might suggest, the installation process of garage doors a complex and potentially hazardous task. Once you have purchased a used garage door, you might struggle to find a reputable professional garage door installer due to the associated dangers and liabilities. However, professional expertise and specialised equipment are core to a safe and proper installation.
