4 Ways DIY Garage Door Repair is Dangerous

There is nothing safe about DIY garage door repair. When things go wrong, they do more than just make the job a bigger headache. You can put yourself and others at risk if the door comes crashing down or a part malfunctions. Therefore, you should leave garage door repair to the experts. Garage Doors Plus, LLC provides complete garage door repair and installation for your home. We know how dangerous the job can be. Consider the following:


1. You Can Misdiagnose the Problem

A garage door system is made up of several parts. Sometimes it’s difficult to know which part is broken or loose. If you replace or attempt to fix the wrong part, you’ll waste time and money. Plus, the problem is still lingering. Save yourself the hassle and contact one of our technicians. We can diagnose the problem and fix it right away.


2. Torsion Springs Can be Dangerous

When fully wound, torsion springs can cause severe injury or even death. When you close the door all the way, there is high tension on the springs. If they become loose or the slightest part malfunctions during a repair, the springs can unload with a tremendous amount of force. Our professionals know how to replace or fix torsion springs so that they are safe to use.


3. Using the Wrong Parts

LIke other products manufacturers design original factory or OEM parts for garage doors. The problem occurs when a store does not carry the original part. The homeowner must then improvise – and, thus, begins the downward spiral during the project. Using the wrong parts can be just as dangerous as no fixing the problem. Garage Doors Plus, LLC has access to original manufacturer parts that fit your particular garage door. We can match the right part to the door and install it according to manufacturer specifications.


4. Falling Garage Door

When a garage door crashes to the ground, those underneath cannot support its weight. If it crashes into a vehicle, it will cause hundreds of dollars worth of damage. No child or pet has any protection when a garage door falls. The point is this: You are rendered helpless if a garage door falls on you or your vehicle. Professional garage door repair technicians have the equipment and tools necessary to keep door falls from happening. Bottom line: It’s far safer option to hire a Garage Doors Plus, LLC specialist than to go the DIY route.
