The Garage Door Industry Faces Supply Chain Issues Like Everyone
The final blog in our three-part series addresses supply chain issues impacting garage doors. Part one of our series, in August, explained why it’s better to repair than replace garage doors. In September, our second part described the pros and cons of installing a new garage door.
Just like everyone else, home improvement companies are facing delays and shortages, making garage door installations difficult. Component shortages and transportation delays greatly impact garage door installation times. It’s because of these impacts that TNT Garage Doors Inc strongly encourages garage door repairs over replacements.
A Component Shortage Impacts Garage Door Assembly
A shortage of components is one reason for the impact on the industry. Spray-foam insulation, polyurethane, and steel are among parts included in the garage door component shortage. Spray-foam insulation is an air barrier material that seals doors against air movement. Polyurethane expands to fill the inside of the garage door panels. Galvanized steel is a common component used to create garage doors. Other components include:
Transportation Delays Have Also Broken the Garage Door Supply Chain
Besides a component shortage, another common supply chain issue is transportation delays. These delays hinder deliveries to and from garage door manufacturing and component facilities. Furthermore, transportation delays lead to wasting materials and time, which also negatively impacts garage door supply chain issues.
