5 Signs Your Commercial Sectional Door Needs to Be Replaced

Commercial business owners know the importance of a well-functioning sectional door. If yours has started acting up or is old and looking a little worse for wear, it may be time to invest in a new one. Here are five signs it’s time to get a new commercial sectional door for your facility.

1. It constantly breaks down

If your commercial sectional door is constantly breaking down, you may want to consider replacing it. The time and money spent on repairing your existing door can quickly exceed the cost of a new one. Moreover, a sectional door breaking down can be a safety risk to your facility and employees. Therefore, it makes economic sense to replace your commercial door if you encounter major persistent issues.

2. It makes a lot of noise

Do you notice excessive grinding, straining, cracking, or creaking noises coming from your sectional door? If so, it might be time for a new one. Loud noises are a clear sign that your door is deteriorating. A professional can visit your facility to inspect your door and get to the root of the problem. Ignoring the sounds could cause serious problems down the road and lead to additional repair costs. Promptly replacing your commercial sectional door can prevent potential injuries.

3. It’s not energy efficient

Modern commercial doors are designed with safety and energy efficiency in mind. For example, Wayne Dalton doors have high R-value insulation, bottom seals, sealing joints, and weatherstrip to keep the heat in and the cold out. If your door lacks most of these components, you may want to consider replacing it.

4. It has extensive physical damage

Commercial and industrial doors open and close thousands of times a year. Over time, this repeated use can take its toll. If you find that your door is sagging, has several cracked or dented panels, or is rusted through along the edges, a new one may be in order.

Additionally, replacing your sectional door with a new, stylish one can help improve the curb appeal of your business. It can help attract new customers and ensure your business makes a good first impression.

5. It lacks safety features

If your commercial or industrial door is over 20 years old, it may lack safety features like photo eye sensors, auto-reverse, or mechanical release. These features help reduce workplace injuries and ensure your business runs smoothly.
