Looking for advice on wood garage door panel replacement

I have a house that Iím selling and the building inspector docked me on the garage door bottoms. Iíd just like to replace the bottom panels. I have no clue as to where to get replacement panels or materials. Thoughts?

Wood or aluminum?

Call a garage door retailer, they would be best bet to locate replacement panels!

Unless you are lucky enough to know the door manufacturer and they are still in business and making that same model door you are going to have to repair as finding a replacement panel will be extremely long odds. You didn't tell us what the doors are made of but I will assume wood. So, wood would be a good repair material for the bottom panels. Just replace the bad, rotted with new.

My guess would be those doors have a masonite face.

Those appear to be a Clopay model 32a but not sure could be Overhead Door Co.... not sure if Clopay makes that model any more. You can contact your nearest Clopay dealer to see

Where do you live where a local government building inspector gets involved with a private party selling a house?

I wonder if the OP meant home inspection person, being hired by the buyer, as opposed to a municipal code inspector. I doubt poor condition of a garage door would violate code and prevent a home sale.

In Shaker Heights, Ohio, you need to go through a point of inspection by the city before you sell a home. It’s terrible.

Yes, but is a damaged or rotting bottom section of a garage door a code violation?

Interesting! I wonder what the average income level in Shaker Heights is. I have brother who live is the Cleveland area, Parma. If memory serves me correct I think he said Shaker Heights is the "Rich" area of Cleveland suburbs.

Shaker is one of those neighborhoods where there are middle class and upper middle class areas as well as lower income people. The city has the highest property and income taxes in Ohio where they make the everyone who has money pay for those who donít. I moved out of that city to Solon, Ohio where almost everyone contributes to the economy. Thus, taxes are lower. Solon also welcomes commercial business who also contribute to the tax base.
