Even if you feel nothing is beyond your capacity, this job is best kept with a professional. Here are a few reasons to reconsider:
- The average door weighs in excess of 400 pounds. That in it should keep you from doing the job. But if that is not enough to deter you consider this the door falls. If it falls out and you are not around the damage may be limited to the door itself but if it falls while being opened it could land on your car with you in it. Not only could you suffer serious and possibly fatal injuries but you can also damage everything contained in the garage. That is just one of the many scenarios that can play out.
- By calling in a professional service you will be guaranteed that the job will be done right the first time. If you try and do the job yourself and something goes wrong you will not only damage the door, which is quite costly in itself, but also take the chance of damaging other items stored there and again possibly even a family member.
- A professional company does this for a living. Since this is what they do chances are very good that the job can be done quickly. Whereas you may have to wait for your next day off. Not only will they be available to do the job, but the completion time will be significantly less than attempting the job alone.
- By calling a professional you will know that the job is done correctly. They have all the tools necessary at their disposal. If you attempt the job alone the last thing you want is to have to stop in the middle to purchase a tool. Leaving the garage door hanging is never a good idea. Once you start the job it must be completed.
When it comes to something as important as a garage door it is always best to hire a professional. The staff is fully trained and available. They have a crew with the proper tools so that the job can be done quickly and painlessly. If anything goes wrong you have someone to replace it for you at no additional charge.
