Top 3 Reasons Colorado Springs Homeowners Shouldn’t Attempt a DIY Garage Door Repair

We get it. You’re handy. You’re an expert when it comes to unclogging drains and you even managed to build your kids a treehouse.

You have a garage full of tools and you’re not afraid to use them.

But if your garage door has started to act up, this isn’t something you should try to fix on your own. We don’t care how many DIY videos you’ve watched on YouTube.  We also don’t care if you’ve heard a story about how your friend’s neighbor’s brother’s cousin once fixed his garage door using bubble gum, duct tape and zip ties.

If you’re not an experienced garage door technician, a DIY repair could be dangerous.

Safety first

Do you know how much your garage door weighs?

The average door weighs between 100 and 400 pounds, give or take. If you attempt a DIY repair and you accidentally knock the door off its tracks, the door will come tumbling down. Not only could this cause a significant amount of damage to anything and everything the door comes in contact with, you’re also likely to damage the door beyond repair. Not to mention, that if the door strikes you, a family member or a household pet, this could cause a significant injury.

When you work with Above the Rest Garage Door Repair you can rest assured that we have years of experience in helping clients throughout the region with all types of garage door system repairs. We know what needs to be done to get the job done right and we know what needs to be done to get the job done safely.

Garage door springs can be dangerous

If you think one or more of your garage door springs needs to be replaced, you’ll want to contact a reputable garage door repair company. When it comes to removing springs, there are a number of steps that need to be taken, in the correct order, to ensure the springs are removed safely.

Springs are under a tremendous amount of pressure- if one breaks, it will turn into a dangerous, high-speed projectile. High-speed metal projectiles can cause damage to the things they come in contact with—and you certainly don’t want to run the risk of being struck.

You could cause more damage

If you try to DIY a repair and the job isn’t done right, you run the risk of turning what started out as a small problem into a much bigger one. Remember- big problems cost more to fix than small ones do.
