As homes get older, household items tend to start not working like they used to—the washing machine quits washing, that refrigerator you bought a decade ago dies, the air conditioner goes on the fritz. The garage door in your San Diego home is not immune to this trend either. Whenever an essential household item goes down, most people are faced with the dilemma of “fix-it-yourself” or call in a professional. If your garage door happens to stop working correctly, here are 3 reasons why you should call in a professional San Diego garage door repair service:
Access to the parts you need
If you’ve ever tried to repair a broken garage door, you may have learned that finding parts is a major challenge, whether you’re shopping online or in your local San Diego home improvement store. Say you find the part you need on the internet, (at least you think it’s the part you need, it is hard to tell from the tiny photo on the website, you know), pay the crazy shipping price, and wait for 5 business days while it is delivered, only to find it’s the wrong part. That is a big giant waste of time. A garage door repair specialist will most likely have the parts you need in stock, or the ability to get them quickly.
Save yourself some time
Garage door repair, for a person with no repair experience and access to parts, is an extremely time consuming endeavor. Door components are usually very large and heavy. Repairs typically require two people and can take hours, not minutes. A professional San Diego garage door repair service, will not only have the tools and parts needed to save you time, but the expertise to do the job very quickly.
The components of even a moderately sized garage door are always large and heavy and, by nature, located off of the ground. Garage door repair by a novice can be a dangerous proposition. The heavy door opener motor sits 8-10 feet off the ground, and the door itself is massive and unwieldy also. Then there’s the springs, which are tightly wound coils of steel under extreme tension This is the most dangerous component in repairing a broken garage door. Garage door springs are ridiculously dangerous to even attempt to repair or install. Don’t take the risk, it’s not worth damaging your health or your property.
All of three of these reasons should give you the proper motivation to find an expert, professional San Diego garage door repair service, should you need one. They have all the parts you’ll need, they will save you loads of time and hassle, and most importantly—they will help you stay healthy, safe and happy.
