How Long Does a Garage Door Last?

The average lifespan of a professionally fitted, manual garage door is around 15 years. The average lifespan for an automatic garage door is around 15-15 years. The number of years your garage door will last will be affected by the usage of the door and how it is maintained; manual garage doors can last up to 30 years with appropriate maintenance.

The average lifespan of a garage door is often calculated with the idea that the garage door will be opened and closed twice a day. If your garage door will be opened and closed more than twice a day on a regular basis, you may find that the lifespan of the door is shortened slightly.

How Can I Make my Garage Door Last Longer?

  • Lubricate Critical Parts

To prevent components of your garage door becoming stiff or squeaking, purchase an appropriate lubricant and apply this every winter.

  • Clean The Sensors

If your garage door features sensors, be sure to keep them clean and free from cobwebs, as this may affect how they work.
