So you’ve got a broken garage door and are wondering whether or not to call a professional? The answer depends on how big of a job it is and your expertise level. Some problems, like a door being off track, can be fixed with a few simple tools and a little know-how. Other issues, like a broken garage door spring, are best left to the professionals because of the danger involved and the level of expertise required.
But the real question you should ask yourself — how big of a hassle am I prepared to deal with? Most garage door repairs are at least somewhat DIY — but a pain nonetheless. Something’s bound to go wrong — a rusted bolt breaks off, a track ends up bending. It’s frustrating to say the least. Sometimes you call a professional because you’d rather spend your Saturday relaxing than repairing your garage door.
Garage door rollers allow the door to move up and down the track. If not properly lubricated, they can seize up. They can also break. You can lubricate them with a can of WD40. You should probably do this about once a year. If they need replaced, you can do it yourself for less than $5 in about 10 minutes. It’s an easy job.
Garage door hinges are what enable the door panels to move independently of each other. They can rust, seize up or break. They are simple to repair and don’t cost much if you do it yourself.
Garage Door Opener Replacement
Garage door opener problems are another issue. It could be as simple as a replaced battery. It could also be a burned out motor. Make sure everything is plugged in and batteries are fresh. If you need a new motor in the opener, you can get one and replace yourself for less than $100.
