Plano Garage Door Repair
Let’s face it, we’re in the age of Do-It-Yourself. Well, at least attempting to do it ourselves until we hit the point of no return and have to call an expert (myself included). And Plano is no exception to this mentality. Sayings such as “There’s an app for that”, “I’ll Figure it Out”, and “Google It” have become the norm across all generations in the United States. What many Plano residents don’t know is that garage door repair is considered by many contractors as the most dangerous home repair. We have many contractors, re-modelers, and handymen that actually refer their clients to us because they know how dangerous the largest moving part in your home can be. Handymen will work on your heating and air conditioning system, plumbing, and electricity; but often won’t touch your garage door springs. What does that tell you?
Unfortunately, to the naked eye most garage door repairs “Look Easy on YouTube”. Installing garage door openers purchased at home improvement stores, trying to weld metal to existing garage door structures, replacing broken garage door springs, and trying to adjust the sensitivity settings and travel limits are the most common situations we run in to with our Plano, Texas residents. Always call a garage door repair company when it comes to working on garage doors, garage door springs, garage door openers, or any electronics in relation to a your garage. There are hundreds of sites that give great information and instructions on different aspects of garage door repairs. Lubricating certain parts of your garage door system up to four times per year can be done on your own, but the rest should be done by experienced and professionally trained garage door service technicians.
