WE ACCEPT ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS
PLEASE WATCH YOUR KIDS AROUND GARAGE DOORS. Children should never be allowed to use any part of the garage door, including pushing the garage door button or use the portable garage door opener. Buttons should be installed at a height that is not reachable for children and parents should always teach their children about garage door safety.
A garage door is the largest moving object in your home, and because of the large number of parts, installation of a garage door is highly technical. Connecting the springs can be particularly dangerous, and proper installation is critical to the performance of your door. Professionals at Hung-Rite, can typically install a door in a few hours and are careful to make sure safety requirements are met. Installations by most homeowners can typically take several days and cause much frustration. Doing it yourself, can also void certain warranties, so we recommend a trained garage door installer to handle the job for you.
At Hung-Rite we sell springs for pick-up however, it is highly recommended that you hire a professional for install. Your springs are key to the proper function of your garage door and different springs react differently, making some even more dangerous than others. A Hung-Rite repair man will be able to easily identify which type of spring your model is using (torsion or extension), diagnose your spring problem, and restore service to your garage door safely. Many spring related injuries result from well-intentioned amateurs while trying to fix their own broken garage doors. It is much safer for homeowners to leave spring replacement and garage door repair to qualified garage door maintenance and repair to one of our Hung-Rite professionals.
If you’re thinking about repairing your garage door on your own or by someone inexperienced, then you need to realize that a garage door is not something simple and uncomplicated. Here’s why you should consider hiring a professional to do the job:
Repairing a Garage Door Is a Complex Task
Simply stated, a garage door is an extremely complex piece of machinery featuring over 300 moving parts that work together to open and close the door. The most critical components of a garage door are springs, rollers, tracks, cables, and panels. Each of these components requires specialized knowledge in order to understand how they work, and more importantly, how to repair them.
Experience & Expertise in Garage Door Repair
Our garage door repair professionals are qualified experts, most with years of experience servicing and installing garage doors. Our technicians are able to quickly diagnose and fix any garage door problem. Not only will your estimate for the necessary work happen faster, you will also have the benefit of knowing that your repair work will be completed by someone who has done this before. Moreover, they can also alert you about potential problems you were unaware of. In addition, when repairing a garage door, you need a different set of tools specially created to repair garage doors, and professional technicians have every tool needed for the job. One of the other services our employees can provide is the disposal of your old garage door if you are replacing a door.
A garage door is heavy (it weighs about 500 pounds), and it can easily kill you if it falls on or can become a deadly trap when someone unskilled/ inexperience tries to repair them. The springs on a garage door are the parts that lift your 500-pound garage door, and they have to endure extreme pressure and tension. This means just one wrong move can send these springs flying towards your throat at bullet-like speed. Also the opener must be 100% correctly set up (including the reverse mechanism), or you could be facing negligent homicide charges after your garage door doesn’t reverse and ends up crushing a neighbor kid, a pet, or even a burglar.
– Approximately 1610 injuries are reported to US hospitals each year as a result of do-it-yourself garage door repairs.
– Approximately 2102 injuries are reported due to falling doors (remember: it is the springs that lift the weight of the door).
– At least 313 annual injuries reported to hospitals are directly attributable to springs alone.
– 224 people are injured when doors that should be repaired are left unattended.
Helps You save Money on the Long Run
While most people think it is expensive to hire a professional garage door repair service, and they prefer to do the job by themselves, the truth is hiring a garage door repair expert will actually save you money. This is because repairing a garage door is a complex task, and you could wind up buying the wrong parts, or you can even damage your door after investing time and money trying to repair it, and this will force you to shell out thousands of dollars in ultra-expensive repairs – or even force you to buy a new garage door.
