DIY garage door repair isn’t a good idea

We all have a little DIY in us. When the faucet drips, you go to your local hardware store to pick up the parts you need and fix it. When there is a problem with the washing machine, you do some research and resolve the problem. The door starts acting up, so you self-diagnose the problem, watch a few garage door repair YouTube videos and you’re ready to get to work.

However, when there is a problem with your garage door, you should call a professional.

While it may seem easy enough, DIY garage door repairs come with some high risks.


Here are some reasons WHY you should never attempt DIY garage door repairs

Torsion Springs are Seriously Dangerous

A garage door with a broken torsion spring can fall rapidly and cause injury or death. However, the most common danger comes when your torsion springs break and you decide to undertake the repair/replace them yourself. Torsion springs can be very dangerous, and you not only need the exact tools for the job, but also need to have a good knowledge of the mechanics involved. Some of the parts involved in such a process can be life threatening, and must be handled with care and precision, which is why it is always recommended that you call in a professional, rather than trying to handle a replacement or repair by yourself. Failure to do so may leave you with injuries and/or damage to your property.

It is essential that you call a specialist to repair your garage door. It is not difficult to find a service provider or technician who is qualified to replace your torsion springs.

You Can Cause More Harm Than Good

As with any DIY attempt, our intention is to ultimately save money. However, when you try to repair your garage door, often you make the problem much worse – by causing more damage to the door which in turn could trigger damage to the garage itself, items in the garage or YOUR CAR!

Which will end up costing you more in the end.
