DIY Garage Door Repair Disasters

Dear property owners, we know you love to DIY when it comes to those garage doors, but keep in mind that even the slightest mistake can lead to disasters of magnanimous proportions.

In the very least, DIY garage door repair disasters are inconvenient and expensive. You not only lose functionality but when your garage door is not correctly repaired, your properties are not going to be safe.

It’s is always better to stay safe than sorry. Certain technical things at home need the attention of nerds to restore them to functional repair.

Garage door experts help avoid disasters such as:

1. Injuries and/or damage to possessions

Some parts involved in garage door repair processes can be life-threatening. Torsion springs, for example, are very important for storing mechanical energy from opening and closing actions. They must be made from denser materials and properly mounted to withstand the forces. If done wrong, torsion springs may break sending the garage door flying.

It’s always good to let a specialist do the repair using the right tools to avoid injuries and/or damage to valuables.

2. Opening and closing noise

No one likes a noisy garage door. Sadly, this is what happens when garage door weight is not properly balanced, nuts are left loose, lubrication is done poorly and hinges are left loose. When repairing garage doors on your own, you may be in a hurry and may not give the above areas a blitz.

Garage door noises can really put you in a bad mood, and bang goes any fond hopes of a beautiful day.

3. Unnecessary expenses

As a homeowner with various utility bills to take care of, you should know better than to waste your money on unnecessary garage door items. But without guidance, how do you know which items are important?

You may find yourself paying for a wind-loaded garage door, yet you don’t live in a windy zone. What a waste! Watch out for quirky franchised companies too that advertise their garage doors as excellent only to sell you something fake.

It’s always wise to rely on a local, trusted garage door contractor they will assess your garage door and tell you precisely what is needed.

4. Poor quality materials

You may get duped into buying cheap garage door replacement parts resulting in poor build quality and the need for replacements and repairs. In the end, cheap parts only create a money sink.

The take-home?

Successful, safe, and budget-friendly garage door repairs always start with the proper diagnosis, followed by the right materials. Sadly though, this doesn’t happen with DIY since, in most cases, you don’t know what you are looking for, and even if you diagnose the problem, you may not have the tools to deal with it.

Most parts involved in garage door repair processes are life-threatening. Stay safe by letting the nerds do it for you.

I love this company. The people are kind, respectful and quick to respond. I have used them twice and both times they have been convenient and helped me repair my garage door and get on with my life. The most recent time, I met with Adam Caricone, who arrived early, worked hard and would not give up until he solved my garage door problem. Their prices are fair and they are a local company. I highly recommend you give them a try.

They went out of their way to make sure that we were completely satisfied.

Everyone at Door Dorks is great! We had our garage door opener installed by them. So, when it came time to get a new garage door, we went right to Door Dorks. Gina came out to see our home. She made sure we got exactly what we wanted. Last, but not least, John and Adam came out to install our door. They did an excellent job. They went out of their way to make sure that we were completely satisfied. What a difference! Our home looks amazing.
