Sectional Door Panel Replacement

Garage door panels can take a beating over time leading to dents, cracks and warping. A damaged panel can then lead to larger problems if the panel is impacting alignment or puts extra strain on rollers, tracks or the opener.

In addition, damaged panels hurt the curb appeal of your property. Therefore, a panel replacement is a good investment for your home value and to prevent more expensive repairs.

We’ll come out to your site, assess the situation and recommend the best course of action. We will find the best match for your panel and get the colors just right. Don’t wait until things get worse, call the pros at Sawtooth to get your garage door back in shape.

Door Rollers Replacement

Garage door rollers are a key component in the smooth operation of your door.

Most standard rollers that come with a new door are prone to dirt and debris buildup impacting their operation. As a result, dirty rollers can cause more noise and unnecessary strain on other system parts.

If your door is noisy or isn’t operating as smoothly as it should, it may be time to have them replaced.

We would be happy to inspect your rollers as part of a routine maintenance check to see if they need to be serviced. We’ll explain what needs to be done and explain how upgraded rollers may be worth consideration.

Common Questions

Why should a garage door be repaired by experts?2022-12-11T18:52:26+00:00

A garage door system consists of many components that all work in unison to open or close the door in a reliable way. If one or more of those components breaks or degrades, it can start to impact other parts of system. So while fixing an individual item may seem like a good DIY project to save money, it may not always work out that way. Here are some reasons to leave it to the pros:


Safety is by far the biggest reason to leave garage door repair to the pros. Garage doors weigh several hundred pounds and the forces involved with the lifting and closing an door can be deadly. Hundreds of accidents are reported every year in the United States from DIYers getting hurt trying to save a few bucks. Garage door springs are particularly dangerous in the wrong hands. It’s just not worth the risk.


Servicing a garage door system is complex and requires some specialized tools. In addition to the tools cost, garage door contractors typically get parts at reduced pricing by buying in quantity. More often than not, an untrained homeowner will make a mistake that will add to the cost immediately or down the road.


Researching the fix, acquiring parts and tools and performing the repair all take time. Homeowners should consider what their time is worth when deciding how to repair their system. What might take a professional an hour to fix could take a DIYer a day or more and still not get the desired outcome.


If you plan on making an insurance claim to cover the repair, it makes no sense to make the fix yourself. Insurance companies will want paperwork to process the claim so let the pros handle it.


Any decent repair company will offer some warranty on their work because they have confidence in the service they provide. This provides the homeowner with some additional peace of mind.

What are the most common residential garage door problems?2022-12-13T17:34:52+00:00

Garage doors have a lot of moving parts so there are plenty of things than can go wrong. Here are the top 5 problems we get calls for:

Remote Control Not Working

We all know that feeling of dread when we click the opener and nothing happens. Ugh. It could be something as simple as dead batteries in the remote to a defective opener that needs replacing. If you have more than one remote, try another and see if things go better. If not, try the manual wall switch. If that doesn’t work, and the opener doesn’t even try, check your breakers. And if that’s not the issue, you may need to call in the pros to diagnose the situation.

Broken Springs

Springs have a limited lifespan and they break. It’s usually pretty obvious when you look at the springs. If there is a gap in the spring coil, it’s broken. It’s best to get them replaced ASAP because operating the door without the spring assist can cause damage to other parts of the door system.

Noisy Garage Door

There are a number of reasons your door might start making some awful sounds. Sometimes a little lubrication will take care of it, but it could also be a sign of a larger problem. You can try lubricating parts with the correct type of lubricant (lithium grease, not WD-40!) but if that doesn’t help you likely need a professional diagnosis.

Door Doesn’t Open Evenly

A door that doesn’t open evenly is a sign of some impediment to the door rising up. This could be a defective or broken spring or some issues with rollers and the track.

Door Doesn’t Open Or Close Completely

Garage doors have a number of safety features designed to protect people and the garage door system. If a garage door won’t close completely, check for obstructions on the floor than may be blocking beam sensor. If it won’t open all the way, the opener may be sensing too much resistance which could be caused by a broken or defective spring or an issue with rollers or the track.

How can a noisy garage door be fixed?2022-12-12T22:51:10+00:00

There are any number of reasons your garage door could be making excessive noise. Some noise is to be expected, but if you’re suddenly hearing more noises than before, there are a few basic things you can try before calling for help.

Tighten Nuts and Bolts

Make sure all your hinge and track bolts are secure. Use a socket wrench to tighten up any loose nuts and bolts but don’t overdo it. A firm tightening is all that’s needed. Don’t mess around with any components involving the springs including brackets, cables, wood blocks, fasteners, bolts or other parts of the counterbalance system. If you’re not sure, leave it alone and get help from the pros. Knocking the spring out of balance can lead to more problems and be dangerous.

Lubricate Rollers

If your rollers are the standard open bearing type (not upgrade enclosed nylon rollers) you could give them a little squirt of lubrication. We typically recommend lithium grease or a silicone spray but don’t use WD-40.

Lubricate Hinges

Hinges can be subject to corrosion or dirt build up causing unwanted friction in the system which in turn makes noise. While you’re doing the rollers, you may as well give all hinges a squirt as well. Again, lithium grease or silicone spray but no WD-40!

Lubricate the Garage Door Spring

Noisy or not, it’s a good idea to lubricate your springs one or twice a year. Not only will it reduce noise, it will prolong the life of your spring. Take your lithium grease and spray across the top of the spring. Apply just enough that it seeps down but doesn’t drip all over the floor below. Wipe away any excess if needed.

Still Noisy?

After tightening your nuts and bolts and lubricating the components mentioned above, open and close the door a couple of times. If you’re still hearing unusual noises, it may be time to call in the pros for a more detailed inspection.
