Repairing a Garage Door After an Accident: Expert Solutions for a "Backed Into Garage Door" Scenario in Laguna Niguel, CA

The homeowner experienced a common but stressful mishap — they backed into their garage door. This incident left their white, short-raised panel steel sectional door without windows completely damaged, necessitating a full replacement.


The Challenge

The main challenge was adhering to the homeowner's association (HOA) rules, which required replacing the garage door to match the existing style and color. Additionally, the homeowner wanted to upgrade the operating system to enhance functionality and ensure a longer-lasting solution.

Our Solution

In response to the homeowner's needs and the HOA's stipulations, CHI model 2250 was selected to be installed, a new door identical to the original to comply with HOA regulations. The door is a white-colored steel sectional model with a short, raised panel design chosen for its resilience and classic appearance. We opted not to include windows or insulation in the replacement door to closely match the previous setup and keep within the homeowner's budget.

Operating System

Recognizing the need for a more reliable and durable system after being backed into, we upgraded to the LiftMaster 8160WB chain drive operating system. This system is known for its strength, longevity, and smooth operation, providing peace of mind that the new door will perform well under daily use.

Restoring Peace of Mind with Expert Care

The incident of backing into a garage door can be unsettling, but with the right professional help, the repair process can be smooth and stress-free. Our approach restored the garage door to its original state, fulfilling HOA requirements, and upgraded the system to prevent future issues.
