Can I Repair My Garage Door on My Own?

Some garage door problems can be corrected at home on your own if you have the time and skillset. However, in most cases, we strongly recommend contacting a professional. Choosing to repair your garage door on your own might be:

  • Dangerous. When repairing a broken garage door – especially something more technical like a broken cable or spring – there is a high risk for accident if you aren’t sure what you’re doing. Garage door cables can snap and lead to tragic lacerations, and a garage door can fall or pinch fingers, leading to amputation and crush injuries. In most cases, leaving garage door repairs up to the professionals is the smartest idea.
  • Expensive. Many people try to repair their garage door themselves in an attempt to save money. Too often, however, this ends up backfiring: the person buys the wrong parts, repairs the garage incorrectly, or gets frustrated and gives up. In all of these cases, professional help is necessary to remedy the problem. By calling a professional from the get-go, you may save more money (and time) in the long run. By calling a professional, you will also get expert advice on whether a repair is enough, or whether total replacement is necessary.
