If you backed into a garage door, here's what you need to do. First, sit down at your kitchen table and eat an entire pint of New York Super Fudge Chunk Ben & Jerry's.

Next, will you have to replace the whole garage door if someone backed into it? Maybe.

Crumple

In a case like this one, it could be possible to replace or repair just the bottom panel.

That's going to have to be replaced. Hope their insurance will cover it.

Broken Garage Door

If someone backed into your garage door and it looks like this, it will probably have to be replaced.

I can't even.

Wrecked Garage Door

Damage like this is questionable. It might be possible to repair, rather than to replace the whole garage door in a case like this where someone backed into a garage door.

Drove into my Garage Door.

Excuse the blurry photo. I included it because the homeowner backed into his garage door, and had to have it replaced. It cost him $775.

My neighbors garage door

It looks like someone backed into this garage door when it was not fully open, as evidenced by the damage to just the bottom panel. This could be repaired.

Someone backed into this garage door, and it is so warped that the door will never fit in the runners again.

The good news is that your homeowners insurance will usually pay for some or all of the cost of repairs if a member of your household backed into the garage door. (If someone else backed into your garage door, their liability policy should cover the damage.) Either way, you'll need to contact a professional garage door contractor. I am truly sorry that this happened to you, and I wish you luck with the repairs.
