If your garage door has been damaged, whether as a result of a faulty component, a collision, or an attempted break-in, you may be tempted to ask yourself: “can I do a DIY garage door repair?” While there is, of course, nothing stopping you from doing so, it’s always better to get a professional garage door repair done, wherever possible.
As one of Tyne and Wear’s leading garage door repair companies, we have considerable experience dealing with all manner of faulty garage doors. Here we list just some of the reasons why you should repair your garage door professionally.
You’d be surprised how easy it is to injure yourself when repairing a garage door if you’ve never done it before. There’s the risk of trapping your fingers in the panels of a sectional or roller door, cutting yourself on the tension-sprung counterweight of an up-and-over door, or pulling a muscle trying to lift a heavy side-hinged door back into position. By entrusting the job to a professional, you can successfully eliminate such risks.
100% successful repairs that last
Here at Abby Doors, we pride ourselves on delivering high-quality garage door repairs that are guaranteed to last. That’s why all our work comes with a two-year, no-quibble guarantee as standard. If you try to repair it yourself, there’s no guarantee that the same problem won’t present itself again.
Avoiding long term costs
While you might think it’s cheaper to attempt a garage door repair on your own, the opposite could well be true. If you fail to fix things properly, you might end up damaging the door further. This could lead to a more extensive repair job later down the line that will end up costing you more money than getting a seasoned professional to fix the original fault.
Access to experts & latest repair technology
There’s more to repairing a garage door than simply searching online for “how to fix my garage door”. When you instruct an expert, you benefit from their years of experience in the field and their in-depth knowledge of garage door repairs. What might appear a simple fix only looks that way because of the extensive expertise they bring to the job.
Ease and convenience
Before you ask “can I repair a garage door myself?” you should consider whether it would be worth it, even if you could. Repairing a garage door is not an easy task. It would likely take at least two people to re-hang the door and there is plenty of scope for error if you’re not used to this kind of work. Better to hire a professional garage door repair expert and save yourself the time and hassle.
