Garage Door Myths Part 3: Garage Door Installation Can Be Done By Anyone

You have been noticing your neighbours getting new garage doors that look amazing, and you have decided it is time you stepped up and improved the look of your home, too. You don’t want to be the only one on the block with a shabby door, right? While that is a great idea, doing garage door installation yourself or hiring someone who doesn’t specialize in it is a bad idea. Here’s why:

  • It’s heavy! A regular garage door can weigh hundreds of pounds, and insulated or security doors can be even more challenging. Being able to lift it properly while installing takes experience, or you risk not only damaging the door, but also getting hurt.
  • The spring and cable system needed to support that heavy door combine to form a high-tension system that can cause serious injury if not handled and installed the correct way.
  • Many talents are needed in the complex task of garage door installation, including being able to follow an instruction manual, handling power tools capably, and having both mechanical and carpentry aptitude and experience.
  • Never allow garage door installation to be done by an unlicensed and uninsured person. If they get hurt on your property, you can be held liable. If they break something, you’ll be the one paying. It isn’t worth the risk.
