Is It Safe to Repair a Garage Door Yourself?

Garage doors are not just protection for your vehicle and workshop from the elements and theft. A well-selected garage door can increase the attractiveness of your home and generally draws eyes as it is a dominant part of properties. Therefore, there is a lot of good reason to have a well-kept garage. Dings, scratches, and worn paint can cause you to lose out on prospective buyers and structural damage can put you at risk of theft and home-invasions. This is why garage door repairs should be complete as soon as possible. But, is it a good idea to take on the challenge of a garage door repair on your own?

How Will You Gather the Tools and Equipment?

Some garage damage requires tools and equipment that are not found in the average toolbox. A DIY fixer’s solution, therefore, is going to be either to repair the door with makeshift supplies or go out and buy the necessary tools. Generally, saving money is the motivation for handling garage door repairs as a DIY project, but the cost of the tools can add up in time and money. Further, using makeshift supplies can compromise the integrity of your garage door’s security.

Time Is Money

There are so many things that you can do with your time such as taking on new business, spending valuable time with family, or working on a hobby. The learning curve for learning how to properly repair a garage door can be steep. Finding the right tools and equipment will expend some more time. Then, repairing the garage door will take even more time, eating away at your entire weekend or even longer. Professionals have the experience, tools, and equipment to handle the garage repair in a fraction of the time. Also, Bob’s Advance Garage Doors offers affordable pricing and regular promotional offers. Call today to ask about available offers.

Consider the Risks to Your Health and Property

Garage doors are a lot heavier than you might expect and the work requires climbing ladders and working at heights, exposing you to risks of severe injury. Consider the risks of falling from these heights or, worse, having the door collapse on you or loved ones. The medical bills are one thing, but the trauma and risk of a lifelong injury is great.

Compromising Your Security

A quick tutorial from a website will not be the same as years of training and experience. Tutorials may skip over important steps. Just a few missing bolts and screws could mean your home security is compromised. There is also the chance of missing a step that leads to aggravating a small issue and turning it into another necessary repair.

Avoid the Hassle

Handywork can be satisfying and fulfilling, but home security should be taken seriously. Instead of wasting time watching tutorials, buying tools and supplies, and attempting to fix your garage issue, why not spend that time with your loved ones, on your business, or working on your hobby? The professionals at Bob’s Advance Garage Doors have years of experience, necessary tools and equipment, and affordable prices. Call us and ask our friendly staff about our promotional offers.

  • How to Prepare Your Garage Door for Winter?

    Most homeowners concentrate on different tasks in preparation for the winter months – from winterizing the lawn to cleaning gutters, prepping vehicles, and maintaining all heating appliances. Unfortunately, in most homes, the garage is sparingly included in that winter prep list.

  • Spring Replacement in Alpharetta

    Garage door spring replacement in Alpharetta is very essential because the spring will eventually loosen and break especially after a long period of usage and lack of maintenance service. The metal spring can snap under tension and even if you don’t hear the spring breaks, you will notice that it weighs more than before when you try to lift it with your hand. 

  • Reasons You Need a New Garage Door Opener

    Do you feel that your garage door is getting old? Well, if it has been a decade or more that you have not thought about it, it is the right time that you think of installing a new one. You can reach out to Bob’s Advance Garage Doors and our team will help you with a new garage door opener. 

  • How to Convert from Extension Springs to Garage Door Torsion Springs

    Converting extension springs to torsion springs comes with a lot of benefits and Bob's Advance Garage Doors can do this for you efficiently. Most garage door fitters and owners prefer torsion springs because they are sturdier and last longer.
