5 Important Reasons Why You Need A Professional To Install A Sectional Garage Door
Are you considering installing a Sectional Garage Door yourself? Then this blog is for you.
Even though we love a DIY job and there are various instructions and how-to videos available online, installing a sectional garage door is a project that requires a professional garage door installer. To explain why this is not a DIY job, we will point out 5 crucial reasons why you need a professional to install a sectional garage door in this blog.
Installing a sectional garage door is not as simple as the internet makes it seem. Sectional garage doors are heavy, difficult to move, and are under extreme tension (the springs, spring pole and cables in particular). If not done correctly, trying to install a sectional garage door yourself or with friends can therefore lead to serious personal injuries such as deep cuts, broken bones, or loss of limbs.
Hiring a professionally trained garage door installer is the smartest and safest thing you can do to avoid any risk of injuries simply because a professional garage door installer has the training and experience to complete the installation safely and securely.
2. POTENTIAL FAILURE
Installing a sectional garage door yourself can result in an incorrect installation. And incorrect installation can lead to failure. This means that a garage door that is installed incorrectly can fail during operation. A common case for example is that the garage door will come down unexpectedly when in use. This can damage a car, personal property or even injure a person. To ensure your sectional garage door is installed correctly and to avoid failure and possible damage, it is highly recommended to hire a professional garage door installer to complete the job for you.

4. DIFFERENT PROJECT REQUIREMENTS
There is no “standard size” when it comes to garage doors. All garage door openings are different and therefore need to be treated differently. It is important that a professional garage door installer attends the job site to measure and quote the job as they can not only ensure it is suitable to install a sectional garage door but also identify anything that could complicate the installation. A professional installer knows how to approach different jobs as they have the knowledge and experience to ensure the door is installed safely and securely.
5. INSTALLING AND SETTING UP A GARAGE DOOR OPENER
