Myth no 3: I am able to fix a garage door by myself

It happens very often customers try to handle garage door fixing by themselves.

Yes, a handyman can handle many things, but not all experiments end well. Due to amateur intervention, even a minor defect can turn into a big problem, which in the end will still require the intervention of a professional. What would originally cost a few crowns can end up costing significantly more.

Automatic garage doors are a complex mechanism, so it is always better to entrust their maintenance to someone who really understands the issue (and we don't mean Johny from next door, who understands everything). Don't forget that it's not just about financial damages. Garage doors are one of the largest moving mechanisms you have at home. An unprofessional intervention can damage the doors so much that they become unsafe. When it comes to health, all fun ends...

On the other hand, if you leave the garage door service to a professional, you can be sure that it will be done carefully and, above all, correctly. Each of our service technicians is a trained professional who knows the door systems down to the last detail. For this reason, he is fully aware of his responsibility for the work performed, so he never cuts corners.

Of course, we all want to save money, but in the case of garage door service, it may not always pay off. In addition, minor repairs are not expensive considering the qualified work and your peace of mind.

Finally, we have two well-intentioned pieces of advice for you:

1) You can best avoid garage door malfunctions with regular service inspections, which should take place at least once a year.
2) As soon as something seems wrong with the functionality of your garage doors, don't hesitate and call a technician immediately. This will prevent unnecessary (and more expensive) complications.
