    prolly a roll up door with panels that are difficult to match.
    Do some homework find out if panels are still made.
    If not, cough it up.

    this happens most of the times when tenants use to leave home.. well garage door installation is not a problem which cannot be solved.. we have lawyers agents and door installation companies who can give you several ideas for this!

    Verbally is usually more effective than sign language.

    I take full responsibility and will pay, the landlord hasn't paid for anything he just received a quote. I am just wondering how to go about talking to the landlord and getting his ok so I can get a couple more quotes to make sure I am paying for what I damaged and not paying for the price of a new garage door if I don't have to.

    You had 2 years to handle it by the cheap economical do it yourself method. Now you are stuck with what the landlord paid. It is not his job to get you the best price on door panel repairs.

I offered to pay for damages and my friend finally got around to asking for payment now that landlord noticed damages. The landlord got one quote for $950.00, replacing the whole garage door.

    My question is, can I request he get more than one quote to fix this, I don't know if he just requested a new door or asked them to just repair damages. It there a law in WI for normal wear and tear or depreciated replacement value? Am I just stuck paying this $950.00?

    Thank you for any help!!

    You are responsible for paying for the damages you caused to the garage door. That doesn't necessarily mean that the LL gets a brand new door, especially if the door was already older or had pre-existing damage prior to your running into it.

    Ask the LL for information on when the door was originally installed. If the door requires being replaced rather than being repaired, then you should only have to pay for the DEPRECIATED value of that door, and not for the cost of an entirely brand-new replacement.
