Garage door hit by car

Hi All,

I accidentally hit my garage door and now it has been dented and one of the roller in bottom is off the track.

Any idea if I can put it back in the track and do it myself.

If I am calling for repair how much should I be paying for repair or replace if need.It is regular one car garage door.

Thanks for your help.

If you give us a picture and brand/model of door, we can advise you better.

Depending on how bad the dent is and how good you want it to look you may need a new panel to do it right.

It's possible that the track may have twisted enough for the roller to dislodge and still held its' shape. Very doubtful that you can put it back on the same way that it came off, and I wouldn't intentionally twist the track, but look it over good, lay a straightedge on it, and, if it's not twisted, try unbolting the affected roller, get the wheel back in the track, and bolt it back in place. This obviously won't do anything for the dent, so probably need to decide if you'll be content with that first.
