Why You Should Call a Professional to Repair Your Garage Door

A garage door is a critical part of your home because it not only keeps your car safe inside the house, but also adds an extra level of protection for your home. Some garage doors are also designed with aesthetic appeal in mind, hence boosting the house’s exterior décor. However, as is common with any structure (particularly large structures), garage doors are often bound to break down and cause grave inconveniences or pose serious danger to human life and property.

If your garage door is malfunctioning, call a professional to repair it right away for the sake of your family and property’s safety. Remember, the keyword here is a “professional” garage door repair expert.

Here is why you should only consult professionals for your garage door repair:

1.    Safety

Handling garage door repairs can be a daunting and risky task depending on the type of malfunction experienced. In most cases, garage doors are huge, heavy and supported by chain or spring drive mechanisms. A person without the knowledge of how these mechanisms work could be risking their lives by trying to handle repairs on a garage door.

For example, a broken tension cable or spring could easily hit the person with force and cause serious injuries. Plus, you could be held liable for such injuries as a homeowner if the individual was carrying out repairs within your premises without a liability insurance cover.

Professional garage door repair companies ensure optimal safety working conditions are maintained as they work on your door’s repairs. They also have the necessary liability insurance cover to cater for injuries or property damage resulting from their work within your premises.

2.    Experience and Expertise

A professional garage door repair expert is well experienced in this sector and therefore likely to offer you quality repair services. Experience is key when handling garage door repairs because some damages may pose complicated challenges along the way. However, when such challenges arise, most professionals have most likely come across them before and know how to tackle them smartly.

Professionals also have the expertise, tools and necessary resources to handle your garage door repair in time and ensure safety while at it. With a professional, your repairs will be done right the first time and you don’t have to worry about costly fees that are associated with un-professional work calling for re-repairs.

3.    Warranty

Many professional companies always give a warranty for their work. With a warranty, you are assured that even if your door breaks down or malfunctions again within a specified time period, the professional will come back and fix the problem for free.

4.    Quality Repair Parts

Professionals only rely on quality repair parts in order to ensure that their work maintains a certain standard. This is an added advantage for you because you get quality garage door replacements that help prolong your door’s lifespan and minimize the need for constant repairs. Hiring a professional and having them use quality repair materials may look expensive in the short-term, but in the long-term it saves you huge costs on frequent replacements.

5.    Avoid Additional Damage

You may be really good at DIY projects, but when it comes to garage doors you better leave it to the professionals. Attending to repairs without even identifying the root cause of the problem will only result in a temporary fix, or even result in additional damage.

If your garage door is malfunctioning or broken down, do not hesitate to contact us right away for an emergency fix. We guarantee you professional workmanship and competitive pricing like no other in Oklahoma!

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
