Steel garage doors have become more and more popular, replacing wooden garage doors as the material of choice. Steel garage doors are prone to dents, however. Fixing a steel garage door dent can be done by professionals, but will save you money if you do it yourself.

Auto Body Filler

Doors are often fixed in body shops by using an auto body filler. This filler fills in the actual dent, but requires that you re-paint the door. This can completely hide the ding or dent in the steel garage door.

Suction Cup Ding Fix

Another way to fix a ding or dent in a steel garage door is to use the simple tool that is used in auto shops. Suction cups secure to the door, and pull dents out of the door. This may be harder to do with certain types of steel garage doors.

Some will attempt to take care of the dents themselves. If you want to make sure that your door is fixed properly and without hassle, you might want to consider having it done professionally.
