Garage Doors/Wayne Dalton 9005 Panel Replacement


I need two panels of an older Wayne Dalton garage door (model # 9005) replaced and I noticed that the newer, 9100 Wayne Dalton series look extremely similar. I was wondering if it would be possible to replace the older 9005 panels with 9100 panels without visible difference. I'm looking for any way not to pay for a whole new door! Thanks in advance

HI Kyle,

There is no WD model 9001.  That said, 2004 was the cut off point where the panel designs change sizes. As a WD dealer, I have also found that the shiplaps, (the meeting points between the sections) will not seal properly. But if you are not at all picky, its worth a try. Hope this helps,

I will not answer questions about garage door openers 20 years old or older as they are unsafe, PURCHASE A NEW ONE. How many cell phones have you owned in 20 years? I have 40 years in the garage door industry and have seen almost everything. I sat on the Wayne/Dalton dealers board in 1986,1987,and 1988. I am on the IDEA board of directors ( and am accredited by same. I will, to the best of my ability answer your questions on doors or openers. I will not deal with shinbuster type doors. Replace it if you have one! If your question is about stretch type springs, call an IDEA accredited dealer and have torsion springs installed.
