Why DIY garage door maintenance is not recommended05/14/2014 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.
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?
