Simple answer, No.
Your garage door is probably the most used entrance of your home, and when it breaks down, it is so much of an inconvenience.
As a good homeowner, you may be tempted to tap into your DIY genie to make the necessary repairs; after all, the internet presents so many step-by-step tutorials, so how hard can it be?
However, by no means possible should you attempt a garage door repair or replacement on your own.
Here’s a little bit on the dangers of DIY garage door repair
- There’s so much than what meets the eye about garage doors
A garage door is heavy but still able to lift and close whenever you need it to, which should be the first alarming sign.
The springs, for one, aid the lifting mechanism, despite the heaviness of the door.
This only means one wrong move or spring breakdown can send that heavy piece of metal down with a thud, and we can only imagine the state of anything or anyone it finds on its way.
- Garage doors are complex
There are so many complex parts found in a garage door system, and to carry out a repair, you may need to know all these parts and have the right tools to repair each of them without damaging the door.
Having an expert carry out the garage door replacement or repair will ensure all the specific parts are handled appropriately.
- The possibility of worsening the situation
While DIY repair may seem like a cost-effective measure, that may be true for other easy-to-do jobs but not with garage doors.
We mentioned earlier that garage door parts are complex, and attempting a repair might worsen the problem, leaving you frustrated and with a costly mistake that needs addressing.
On top of it all, you’ll probably waste time you may never recover.
