Unless you’re an experienced garage door technician, you should leave this type of repair to the pros.
A growing number of homeowners tend prefer DIY repairs, because, well, why pay someone else to fix something if you can handle it yourself? On one hand, there’s nothing wrong with being thrifty but on the other, it’s important you understand the difference between a safe, simple DIY repair and a more complex, dangerous one.

Repairing a garage door can be dangerous
Each year, tens of thousands of homeowners are injured in household accidents. When a person attempts to repair their own garage door, not only are they at risk of falling and breaking a limb (falling off a ladder onto a solid, cement floor is dangerous), they also run the risk of knocking the garage door off its tracks.
Not only can a falling garage door harm whatever it comes in contact with, it can crack your cement floor– not to mention the fact that the door can sustain irreparable damage!
Garage door springs can turn into dangerous projectiles
When a garage door spring is broken, it will need to be replaced, because without a working spring, your door won’t open and close as its supposed to.
Replacing a garage door spring safely involves many steps that need to be completed in the proper order. If any of these steps are skipped, the spring could crack, break and pieces of it could go flying.
