Don’t DIY – Call Us Instead!

Many budget-savvy homeowners are always looking to save money when doing projects or fixing issues around their home. We here at Garage Door Specialist understand – in fact, we love doing some of our own repairs and installations from time to time. However, there are times that all homeowners need to call on professional help, and one of those is when the garage door isn’t working properly. The following are three of the main reasons why you should skip the DIY approach and trust the professionals:

  1. The garage door is the largest moving object in your home. Think about it: what other moving object in your home is larger or heavier than the garage door? If you’re not sure about what you’re doing, you could cause a catastrophic drop of the door. With the size and weight behind it, you could cause damage to the door, other nearby property, and possibly to a loved one.
  2. Most families use the garage as a main point of entry to their home daily. If you’re one of these families, then you understand just how crucial it is to have your garage door operate correctly every time. It doesn’t take much to upset the flow and energy in the home, and a malfunctioning, improperly maintained door can cause chaos.
  3. The garage door system in under an enormous amount of tension and pressure. The spring hardware that supports the door uses a large amount of tension, and the cables that control the door use hundreds of pounds of force on them. It is imperative that the homeowner not attempt to repair the hardware of the garage door, as these types of repairs are much more than a homeowner can handle alone. We highly recommend calling us at (919) 841-0030 to have a free onsite estimate.

During this time of year, when we’re all spending more time outdoors, the typical garage door gets more usage than normal. In spring and summer, it’s fairly common to have a garden implement fall or a child’s toy unplug a device or knock an eye beam out of alignment. While these may be simple repairs, sometimes something that seems easy may have more complex problems lurking in the shadows. Please do not hesitate to give us a call, and we can come to your home, give an assessment of the issue, then let you know what it will take to repair it. In many cases, we can arrive at your home the same day you call. So don’t wait – call the Garage Door Specialist today!
