It can happen to anyone, maybe that day you didn’t reverse properly, or drop something heavy at the wrong place, or you inherited a dented garage door, the list goes on… In any case, now you want to fix it. Before you set impossible expectations in your mind, it’s important to know a few things first:
– No matter the method you use and how dedicated you are, the dents will not completely vanish. The two methods we provided will help you make the dents less prominent, but it will still show, all the more if the paint has been scratched.
– Before you start doing anything to the door, be aware that chances are you would lose the warranty that came with the garage door.
– If you are renting, trying to fix the door yourself without making the real estate agent/landlord aware of the dents in the first place and what you are planning to do with it, could get you in trouble down the line when the final inspection comes and pictures get compared.
With this out of the way, there are two methods anyone can go about it: one will require some elbow grease, the other will require a fair few tools.
