Easy Steps for Replacing Panels on Your Clopay Garage Door

Home Improvement

Even the highest quality garage door will eventually start to wear out, or, in some cases, become damaged. Clopay garage doors are recognized for their quality craftsmanship and excellent warranty, but, as the years pass, there may come a time when you need to make repairs due to wear-and-tear or an accident or weather event that causes damage to the door.

In many cases, the entire garage door doesn’t need replacing. With Clopay garage door replacement panels, you can extend the service life of your garage door by replacing only the section that is damaged.

Listed below is everything you need to know to replace a damaged section on your Clopay garage door.

Contact Your Installer

The professional who installed your Clopay garage door should have the pertinent information needed about your garage door to order the replacement panel from Clopay, the manufacturer. If the company who installed your garage door is not available, you’ll need to collect the following information about your garage door and the panel that needs to be replaced.

  • Model and serial number, which is a 15- or 16-digit number located on the bottom section of the door, on the interior side
  • Section that needs replacing: top, middle, or bottom
  • Color of the garage door
  • Size of the section that needs replacing

The company will order the section from the manufacturer, if your garage door model is still being manufactured. If you’re not sure the panel can be replaced, or if the damage affects more than one panel or the mechanisms of the garage door, it may be best to have the professional inspect the garage first.


Once the panel has been received, the Clopay dealer will install it. Generally, the technician will remove the spring system and disconnect the door opener before installing. Once the panel is replaced, the technician will reassemble and check its operation to ensure it is opening and closing smoothly.

When Replacement Isn’t an Option

Safe operation of a garage door can be hampered if it is damaged. Sometimes, due to the age of your garage door, replacing a panel is not feasible, either because Clopay no longer manufactures that model of garage door, or the damage caused is too severe to ensure safe operation. In fact, it may cost less in the long run to replace the door, rather than finding a panel for it. Plus, you’ll have the new features available on current models, a new 1-year warranty covering its installation, and a warranty covering defects in its materials or workmanship.

Importance of Maintenance

As with any other component of your home, regular maintenance and inspection is crucial to keeping your garage door operating as it should.

  • Check your garage door regularly for damage to its mechanisms or panels, paying close attention to the spring.
  • To keep it looking new, wash your garage door annually with a light detergent, and then hose it off.  
  • Lubricate the door spring and hinges regularly to ensure quiet operation.
