If you go digging around the Internet, you can find information on how to install your own garage door.
Many property owners think this kind of instruction is enough to let them do the installation themselves. The fact is that a DIY garage door installation is not as easy as it sounds or looks.
What is so difficult about installing a garage door? For one thing, it can be dangerous. Secondly, you could void your garage door warranty.
Why Should You Not Install A Garage Door Yourself?
Installing a garage door is more than just putting some panels into a track. The garage door itself is part of a larger system that you have to set-up correctly for it to work properly. You need the garage door opener to work when you hit the clicker. You need the door to rise and fall smoothly and evenly. You need the springs to do their job in controlling the door's rise and fall.
The garage door is the largest moving object in your home and maybe even your business. It has many parts which makes installation highly technical. Connecting the springs is very dangerous if not done by a trained professional.
What Are The Advantages of Hiring a Professional Garage Door Installer?
When you hire a professional door installer to do the job, you will see the advantages they bring to your project:
- Getting the job done in a timely manner. Even working with a partner, many property owners cannot install a new garage door in a few days or weeks. The professional installer will handle it in less than a day.
- Ensuring the safety requirements are met. Garage doors can be dangerous. It is important to have working sensors and tension checks to make sure everyone, including children and pets, are safe.
- Providing the kind of installation that will not void the warranty. Many DIY door installations actually void the warranty because it does not meet the manufacturer's standards.
-Offer a lot less stress and frustration to the property owner. Trying to install a garage door can be very frustrating for anyone who doesn't have experience. Getting a professional to do it is much less stressful.
- Handling the disposal of old garage door. Sure, a DIY'er can haul the old door to the dump and pay the tipping fee. But, the contractor gets better rates and this means no trip for the property owner.
