Doing repairs yourself around the home can be a very rewarding, cost-saving endeavor. It’s important to remember, though, that not all tasks should be performed by homeowners. While replacing your water heater may be relatively simple, performing furnace repairs on your home or business can prove to be anything but easy. The same can definitely be said when it comes to overhead garage door repairs. In the final section of our trilogy, we’ll conclude the dangers of DIY garage door repairs and why you should seek professional help.

St Lucie’s garage door repairs and services for more than 20 years. When your overhead door begins to crack and wane, it’s wise to contact one of the best garage door companies in Florida!

Incorrect Repairs

While your garage door system may seem relatively simple in design, there are several components which may lead to confusion during repairs. One issue that homeowners find themselves facing is the correction of the wrong problem. We understand that this may sound weird, which is why you should keep reading before passing judgement! Garage doors are similar to your car or even your body in that one symptom may actually be the result of another issue as opposed to being the only instigator of the problem. Your car’s water heater may fail, and a mechanic will happily replace it, but you may be back at that shop a few months later for the same issue if there is an underlying cause. Putting this into perspective for garage door maintenance measures means that one failure on your system may not be the actual issue. Handy homeowners can successfully solve the symptom of an overhead door problem, yet face much worse problems in the future. Unless you are very confident in your diagnosis of the issue affecting your garage, we recommend contacting a professional for help!

Improper Part Replacements

As we have stated in our previous blog, garage doors can require unique components in order to properly function for a long time. While utilizing the correct tools for your garage door repairs is vital for everyone and everything’s safety, the parts you use in your maintenance can actually be more important. Many overhead doors have their own unique design specifications for optimal use, meaning that you will need to match the exact part for the best results. Many DIYers make this mistake, obtaining parts that they need that seem to match sufficiently. Once your work is done, everything will look and operate smoothly. While we’re proud of you for doing this job yourself, we also worry about the integrity of the parts used. Days or even months later, the improper parts used can fail, creating considerable hazards to people and property. Financial and medical costs may make this task one you leave to a pro!
