Weather is un predictable, especially here in the Ohio valley. We often get extreme weather. It could be storms or extreme temperature changes. Many say that if you want to experience all four season in a day look no further than Cincinnati. Just this last year we had one day where it was very cold and snowing, the next it was in the 60's and raining. We have severe storms with tornados, hail and strong winds. Your garage door can get damaged during these weather events. Make sure you have home owners or renters insurance and file a claim if your door is heavily damaged during a storm. Knowing the extent of the damage can be determined by an insurance company or professional. Always feel free to get a second opinion. Remember that there is always a threshold between where replacement would be more costly than replacement.
