Your garage door is an integral part of your home. If your garage door is in need of repair or replacement, it can be a real hassle. And you might be wondering if it is okay to go the DIY route to try to save some money. For minor issues like paint jobs this is typically not a problem. However, there are several reasons you want to consider leaving it to the professionals when you have other, larger problems with your garage door. If you don’t, you could be in for more than you bargained for (even danger):
The biggest advantage to hiring professionals to repair or replace your garage door is that you will save time. In today’s world, freedom is measured by your ability to spend time doing the things you love or are good at.
For you, it could be spending time with your children, your spouse, or your personal hobby that you love. It’s not likely that you spend your late night hours daydreaming about repairing your garage door. And that’s okay. That’s why we’re here to help. So you can have your time back and stay productive, happy, and free.
Many people don’t realize how dangerous working on garage doors can be at first. After all, it’s just a big door, how risky could it be? However, this line of thinking is what has caused many people to get injured in the past. Garage doors are not as simple as they may appear at first. They are complicated systems, with moving parts that work together. And the thing is, these parts can be sharp, heavy, and loaded with surprising power and physics holding them together.
One wrong move and you could be seriously hurt for life (or worse). This is particularly true for garage door springs. These giant springs pack incredible power and many homeowners have been gravely injured trying to adjust or replace them by themselves. Your health and wellbeing is not worth saving a few bucks on a repair. Let our professionals take care of it for you so you don’t put yourself in harm’s way.
Have you ever done a DIY project on a part of your home, thinking that everything was in working order, only to come back later and find that it stopped working again? This can be a frustrating experience. And it’s a feeling you don’t want to have again. Garage doors are specific. Being a mix of metal, electronics, and other materials, each part of the system needs to be aligned just right for it to work. Otherwise, you could end up with a really large and expensive “wall” that doesn’t move where your garage door used to be.
Every home is different. A garage door that looks great on on house might not fit in with another’s overall style. A great part about leaving the repairs and replacements to professionals like us is that you have incredible options to choose from. Whether it is new colors, materials, or region-specific designs, we have you covered.
As contractors, we have access to manufacturers and other companies that homeowners do not. We can also pass on price savings to you instead of you paying an arm and a leg at big box stores.
You no doubt stay updated on the value of your home. After all, it is the largest asset that most people have. So of course you wouldn’t want to do anything that detracted from the value of it. Whether you want to sell it or stay in it for the long haul, improving its value is a top priority.
An improper repair or shoddy replacement will only serve to decrease its value. On the other hand, a professional job will let you continue to build equity in your lovely home now and into the future.
When it comes to garage doors, they are the largest entryway of the home. A garage door that is out of commission is more that just inconvenient. It can make you late for work or an important outing, make it impossible to remove something from the garage or put it back in (like a lawn mower) and even cause security issues from theft, burglary, or worse. Broken garage doors are not something to mess around with. Instead, leave it to us to help you solve your garage door issues quickly, kindly, and professionally with our experienced and certified technicians. That way you can have peace of mind knowing you’re in great hands.
