Why You Should Hire A Professional To Replace Your Garage Door

Why You Should Hire A Professional To Replace Your Garage Door

If your garage door is worn out or is no longer opening or closing properly, you may want to replace it. Trying to get by with a failing garage door not only increases your energy bills but also poses a safety risk to every member of the household. 

Replacing your garage door is a task better left to a professional, however. While DIY resources certainly exist, ensuring a safe swap requires a high level of handiwork and a significant amount of experience. A seasoned contractor from a reputable home renovation company has both in spades, guaranteeing a successful replacement.

Asonic Roofing is the perfect Calgary contractor to help you replace your garage door. With more than 10 years of experience and a 10-year labour warranty on all installations, Asonic Roofing has the ideal combination of expertise and value.  Call us today for a free assessment.

DIY Garage Door Replacement Can Be Dangerous

The thought of doing the garage door replacement yourself and dodging the contractor fee might seem alluring, but the cons of going it alone likely outweigh the savings you might get out of it. 

Working on your garage door is more difficult than it looks and can be downright dangerous for the following reasons: 

  • A garage door is heavy: Even a small, one-car garage door weighs at least 75 lbs or 35 kg, which is enough to seriously injure you if mishandled. Larger garage doors can easily exceed 400 lbs or 180 kg. 
  • Complex mechanisms: A garage door is a system with many moving parts. Getting it to work properly may require you several tries. 
  • Parts are rare: If you are not a licensed contractor, some parts that are needed for the replacement may not be available to you. 
  • No warranty: If your installation is faulty and you damage your garage or home in the process, you will be on the hook for all expenses. 

Put together, these risks often offset the one benefit of DIY replacement一saving money. 

Contracting Your Garage Door Replacement To A Professional 

Getting your garage door serviced by a contractor will cost more than doing it yourself, but the peace of mind and the quality of the labour usually make it worthwhile. 

For starters, you will not have to put yourself in danger. A professional contractor has the equipment and the experience to avoid any hazards that come with the renovation. 

Second, you can rest assured that your contractor will do a good job replacing your garage door. A specialist can easily identify any problems with your current garage door system and resolve them before installing a new door for you. DIYers often change their garage door only to find that their new replacement still does not close or open properly. 

Last but certainly not least, most contracted work comes with an extensive warranty period. Even in the off chance that your contractor fumbles the replacement, you will not have to pay a cent. Some insurance companies may require a professional installation for all garage door replacements and repairs in the first place.

Garage Door Replacement: A Job For A Contractor 

It is almost always better to ask for expert assistance when it comes to replacing a faulty garage door. These contraptions are large, heavy, and difficult to work with. Doing the replacement yourself exposes you to physical harm and does not guarantee success. 

A contractor, on the other hand, ensures a job well done, extending the life of your new garage door, and often offers a multi-year warranty free of charge. Though the service may cost more upfront, it is often a better value in the long run.

Q: How long do garage doors last?
A: If properly maintained, garage doors can last for many decades. We recommend having your garage door and its components inspected at least once a year. 

Q: How can I maintain my garage door myself?
A: While we recommend scheduling a professional inspection once a year, you can still contribute to your garage door’s longevity by regularly lubricating its components and keeping it clean. 

Q: How much does it cost to replace my garage door?
A: The cost of the replacement depends on several factors, including the material of the new door, its insulation value, and its size. Call us at 1-403-462-2808 or fill out the contact form for a free quote.
