    We have damage to the front of our port a port. We don't know who we could contact for repairs in the Denver metro area. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly welcomed.

    What kind of damage? We use a garage door company to maintain ours here in Oakland CA. But it depends on what is damaged.

    Can't help with suggestions, but unfortunately, I bet I know exactly what happened...(I know the plane and owner).

    are you going to enlighten us or just leave this empty. If the latter, why did you say anything at all?

    Not really my story to tell, but the short version (if I'm right) is a plane came off a tug/towbar and rolled into the hangar.

    Most of expense is, but not necessarily the repair itself.

    Without any information on what is wrong with the hangar, I would suggest calling someone who does steel building construction and maintenance. The hangars don’t look like they would really require a specialist to me.

    Still don’t see why you posted anything at all then.

    I've not heard the term "port a port" before. Sounds like a mobile home version of a hangar. It can be packed up and moved?

    Port a port is the name of a company that makes a T-hangar. I’ve seen them all over the country.
