So, your garage door just broke.
You probably want to try to fix it yourself. Maybe you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person. Maybe you want to save yourself some money. Whatever your reason, trust us, DIY garage repair is not a good idea.
You could get hurt. You could get someone else in your family hurt—or worse. Garage doors are very heavy, and the springs are under a lot of tension. If you make a mistake in your repair, a spring could fly off and hit someone, or the door could fall. The accident could occur while you are working, or later, when someone else is in the way.
Garage repair technicians are trained to do the job safely and correctly. You aren’t.
Attempt to repair your broken garage door on your own, and you could make the problem worse.
We see this all the time. We get a call from a client asking us to fix their garage door, after they tried and failed. These jobs are almost always bigger and more expensive than they would have been if the client had called us in the first place.
Seriously, these are not good DIY projects. Without the proper training and the right tools, you’ll end up costing yourself more money. You’ll probably feel pretty lousy, too. Failure isn’t fun.
Maybe you think we’re just angling for more money by advising you to call in the professionals—after all, we’re the professionals. But honestly, we’d make more money off of you if you tried the repair and totally bungled it. Then we could come in and fix your mistakes and send you a big bill.
But that’s not how we do things. We like taking care of our clients. We don’t want to see you hurt, and we don’t want to see you waste money. So let us help you. Call us. Your wallet and your body (and your pride) will be glad you did.
