Is It Hard to Install a Garage Door Yourself?

Garage Door Installation

While installing a garage door yourself may save you a few bucks you risk your safety and could improperly install the garage door causing you to spend more money down the road on repairs. Even having the correct tools, knowledge and expertise can cause a garage door installation to take up to 12 hours.

Here are some of the reasons you shouldn't install a garage door yourself: 

You'll Need Special Tools

Installing garage doors takes more tools than the basic toolbox you purchase from a hardware store. The spring line alone requires unique tools only seen in the garage door industry to properly install and balance.

Complicated Pieces of Equipment

The reason special tools are required is because of the complex components needed to properly install a garage door. You'll be working with springs, hinges and electrical parts and they all work as one. Managing these components properly is only the beginning not to mention your door will weigh hundreds of pounds making it a series safety concerned if none of the components are installed properly.

Cost's More

Like most things you try to do something yourself and it ends up costing you more money in the long run after you buy all the correct parts or maybe even call a professional to come finish the job. When you buy a door yourself you're relying on box store employees to package your components properly and we see it all the time. You often have to buy new components that will work with your unique door/frame set up. If you are lucky enough to truly get all the components you are then relying on those employees to give you the CORRECT ones and not components that will break/ware down in a short amount of time.
