Why Garage Door Replacement Is Best Left To The Pros

Published on July 21st, 2016

Sometimes a DIY project may seem like the obvious choice. This could be true for small cleaning projects, small paint projects, and home decor. When it comes to your garage door, however, it is important to leave all repairs and replacements to the professionals. Here is some information on the dangers of an inexperienced individual working with a garage door:

Springs Are Dangerous
Your garage door can typically weigh over 500 lbs. The springs that support your garage door is under tremendous pressure. When the spring snaps, it occurs with force that could be fatal to the person working on it. If you live in the Glenview area, our team at Robert’s Garage Doors has the proper training to perform a spring replacement safely and correctly.

DIY Can Lead to Safety and Financial Dangers
An experienced person attempting a garage door replacement in Glenview could dig themselves into a deeper financial hole with just a tiny misalignment of one sensitive component (along with a serious injury). If you notice a spring is misaligned and making strange noises, you can apply a liberal amount of lubricant. When lubricant does not work, it is a sign that you should consult with a garage door replacement Glenview company.

Other Common Garage Door Issues
Along with problems related to the springs of your garage door, components such as the rollers and cable, tracks and panels may need to be repaired.
