Can I Repair My Garage Door on My Own?

Most homeowners in Indiana have a garage and garage door as part of their property. And most homeowners will find that at some point during the course of home (and garage) ownership, the garage door experiences some sort of defect or malfunction that demands garage door repairs. While this is normal, the question for the homeowner is this: Can I repair my garage door on my own, or should I hire someone else to do it?

Simple Garage Door Repairs

Whether or not you decide to repair your garage door on your own or hire someone for garage door repairs should be based, in part, on what is wrong with your garage door. Some repairs are easier than others. For example, if your garage door remote control battery needs to be replaced, this is something that you can almost surely do on your own without complication. On the other hand, if you need to replace garage door rollers or springs, hiring a professional may be the easiest, safest, and ultimately even most affordable option.

Do You Have the Time?

Another thing to think about if you think that you know what’s wrong with your garage door and think that you know how to fix it is whether or not you have the time to do so, and the value of your time vs. hiring a garage door repair specialist for help. If you are an extremely busy person who doesn’t want to spend a few hours on the weekend fixing a garage door (especially if you’re not sure what you’re doing and may have to end up hiring out the garage door repair regardless), calling a professional from the get-go may be the best option.

Is It Safe?

Finally, you should think about whether or not repairing the garage door on your own is safe for you to do. Many garage door repairs, especially replacing garage door springs, are dangerous, and can result in significant injuries. If you’re not already familiar with the moving parts of a garage door and how to perform garage door repairs, practicing when a dangerous element is involved isn’t recommended.
