Damaging your garage door is easier than you may think. Sometimes our children crash in it with bikes and skateboards, other times it’s used as the backboard soccer balls and hockey pucks. Sometimes we may even damage it with our cars when we accidentally leave the car in drive when we meant to have it in reverse. We get it, accidents happen! That being said, Pacific Experts Garage Doors has helped countless homeowners with replacing garage door sections.

Repairing Garage Door Panels
