Why DIY garage door maintenance is not recommended

05/14/2014 Back To Blog

The bulkiness and mechanics of garage doors make it very difficult to repair. When this machine gets spoilt, we sometimes try to fix it by ourselves. In reality, some problems cannot be fixed by common sense without knowing the technicalities involved. In several cases, it is better to get professional help to get it fixed for you rather than going for the do-it-yourself approach. There are good reasons why a professional needs to take care of this problem for you.Why DIY garage door maintenance is not recommended

Safety Reasons


Because of their weight, it will be very dangerous to consider repairing the doors yourself. You can get injured or get stuck underneath a falling or closing door. When handled improperly, there is always the danger of entrapment. But a garage door repair service company usually sends 2 to 3 personnel to repair a garage door to prevent hazards or injuries during the process. 
Moreover, the professional will be familiar with the functionality of the doors than you. Do you know the installation procedures? Do you know what to do if the opener isn’t working? How about the exact location of the tension spring and what it does in the garage door?  If you can’t answer these questions, then going for a professional garage door service is the most ideal thing to do.

Our Midlothian technicians know the mechanics and the functionalities of garage doors, and can easily detect the primary cause of a fault. We have handled similar problems in the past and can expertly bring your garage door back to its operational best.

So, instead of trying to guess what is wrong with your device and trying so many times to fix it without success, isn’t is better you contact us and get it properly done without putting anybody at risk? In most cases and in all fairness, the latter decision is the most appropriate.
