Why Hire a Professional Garage Door Repair Company
At Corpus Christi Garage Door Pros, we understand that many homeowners prefer to perform their own repairs around the home, but when it comes to doors, we highly recommend calling an expert. We take customer safety seriously and listed below reasons why we advise homeowners to call a professional to perform garage door repairs.
Problems with Fixing Your Garage Door Yourself
While the garage door system isn't complicated, it can be extremely dangerous if you lack the experience and proper tools. You may start with the best of intentions and quickly realize you are over your head and need to call a professional. Garage doors are extremely heavy, and door openers are generally mounted to the ceiling creating a hazardous situation for anyone wit5hout the proper training to try to fix. Listed below are the most common door repairs that you should not attempt to repair without a professional.
Replacing Garage Door Panel
Door panels are extremely heavy and can weigh well over 100 pounds. If you lack the proper experience, you may find that you lose control of the heavy door panel and drop it, causing damage to your property or, worse, injuring yourself. It is recommended to leave this repair to the experts with the proper training and equipment.
Fixing a Bent Track
The track is what guides the heavy door to open and close if you find that it is bent and needs to be repaired call a professional. If you try to fix it yourself, you could do so improperly and cause the door to fall, risking damage to property and injury.

Overhead Door Services
Door springs are one of the most dangerous parts to fix within the door system. The springs store mechanical energy to open and close the heavy door, and if the spring breaks, this mechanical energy is released in unpredictable ways and is extremely dangerous. This is one fix you need to leave to the professionals.
Rollers guide the heavy door along the track allowing it to rise and lower. Over time rollers can become worn or broken and will need to be replaced. While this may be a simple fix, it may be an indication of a more significant problem, and you are only fixing a symptom. It is best to have a professional assess the door system and accurately diagnose and fix it, saving you time and money.
Replacing Broken Cables
Next to springs, cables are the second most dangerous door repair. Cables help to raise and lower the heavy door and are constantly under pressure, so trying to fix or replace them without the proper experience or training can result in devastating consequences. It is best to call a professional to fix this problem.
Better Safe than Sorry, Call an Expert
While there may be many home repairs you can do yourself to save money, garage door repairs are generally not one of them. Installing and repairing door systems requires working on ladders, moving heavy parts, and dealing with mechanical energy, all of which can lead to severe injury and damage to property if they are not performed correctly.
