An Expert Garage Door Repair Service vs a DIY Job – Which is Best?

When you have a problem with your garage door, it really pays to call in a professional garage door repair service rather than attempting to fix it yourself. If you don’t really know what you are doing and think that you can save money by not calling in a garage door repair service, here are 4 reasons why this might be a bad idea.

1. Risk of injury: You might be able to fix a manual roller door, but an automatic door is an entirely different beast. If the problem is to do with the door springs for example, as these are installed under a lot of tension, repairing or replacing them can actually cause injury to yourself or to someone else standing nearby. A professional garage door repair service can replace the springs safely, giving you a working door and keeping everyone safe.
2. Finding the parts: When you try to repair your garage door yourself, you have to source the right parts for your brand of door. This can take some time and you might have to order the parts. A repair service will have a large range of parts on hand and if they don’t have the parts for your garage, they can quickly source them from their suppliers.
3. Isolating the problem: A garage door repair service will have years of experience in fixing garage doors, so it won’t take them long to work out the problem and how to fix it. On the other hand, it can take you quite a while to isolate the problem and to decide the best way to fix it. This can be frustrating for you and all the while, your garage door isn’t working.
4.Warranty: When a professional company repairs your garage door they will guarantee their work. So if the same problem happens again or something goes wrong with the parts, you don’t have to keep looking for a solution yourself, you simply call up the repair service and since everything is under warranty, they will come out and fix the problem.

Calling a garage door repair service gives you peace of mind knowing that the problem has been fixed quickly and safely. For a free quote on repairing your garage door, call us on 07 3869 2525 or complete our online enquiry form.
