Chances are your garage door gets a lot of use. Like any machinery, with use comes wear and tear as parts get older. You may want to save a few dollars in the event of breakage by performing repairs yourself. This is totally understandable and even reasonable in some cases. However, there are also times when you will need experienced help from the professionals at Brisbane and Bayside Garage Doors. While this may cost more than doing it yourself, this could end up saving you both money and stress in future. Whether you need garage door repairs or an entirely new customised automatic garage door, we can help.
Repairing a Garage Door Yourself
Determining whether you can successfully fix your own garage door will depend upon a few variables. Namely, the extent of the problem and your own mechanical aptitude when it comes to garage doors. With just a little bit of know-how, it may be perfectly reasonable to presume you can DIY problems such as a damaged panel or a worn weather seal. Replacing panels or seals with new ones can be done safely by those of us with a bit of skill and attention to detail. Another easy DIY garage maintenance option is to lubricate hinges with WD40 or RP7 machine oil. This helps to minimise wear, while you should wipe springs clean with an oily rag, too. It may also seem natural that you can fix loose nuts and bolts, but this is where things begin to get a little bit risky.
Is it Time to Call the Professionals?
Trying to fix your garage door is fraught with danger. This danger extends beyond the possibility of further damage and into that of a personal nature. Cables and drums within the mechanisms of garage doors are under enough tension for things to go wrong quickly if you aren’t one hundred per cent confident how to handle them.
Garage door springs are one of the most dangerous components and should only be fixed or replaced by an experienced professional. Brisbane and Bayside Garage Doors always insist that if you have any doubts, it is best to contact us so we can handle the issue for you.
