Though YouTube videos may make it look easy to install a residential garage door, it isn’t really as easy as it appears. Do-it-yourself (DIY) videos make a task look easy. This is because the person who has made the video is a seasoned professional who has done that same project over and over, usually for several years.
Professional garage door installers have extensive training and years of developing the skills required to do the job correctly and safely. Installing and repairing garage doors can be dangerous, especially the springs. The doors themselves can pose a risk, however, as well as they are large, heavy, and generally awkward to install if you don’t have the requisite experience.
Not only that, but the installation of the corresponding garage door opener requires one to work with electricity and a properly grounded power outlet is required. This means that whoever is installing the door needs to have electrical wiring experience as well. Professional installers will also test your new garage door after it is installed to confirm that everything is working properly and safely.
Benefits Of Using A Professional Garage Door Installer
Aside from experience, consider these three additional benefits to hiring a professional garage door installer.
- The correct parts and tools. Any DIYer has experienced multiple trips to the local hardware or home improvement store to get parts. Though most garage door kits will include the parts you need, something unanticipated will inevitably come up. Hiring a professional to install for your garage door installation means that you’re sure to have the right opener for your door based on the weight and size of the door. And, these professional installers already have all of the correct tools that are necessary to do the job right the first time.
- Safety. We mentioned safety above, but we can’t stress this enough. Installing garage doors is very dangerous, especially if you don’t know what you are doing.
- Warranty. Though most garage doors will come with a warranty, you need to read the fine print. In many cases, the warranty can be void if you attempt to install the door yourself. Not only that but professional garage door installers such as Authority Dock & Door stand behind their work and offer a guarantee and additional warranty for the installation itself.
