Do-it-yourself, or hiring a contractor?
There are many things to consider before having a new garage door installed – even repaired or replaced – and one of the most important is whether it’s convenient and more economical to do this by yourself or to hire a company to perform the work. Many people opt to handle some projects on their own aiming to save money. However, it’s important to remember that there are several points to take into account before attempting a project of this magnitude on your own.
Key Points to consider before installing your garage door
Experience is probably one of the most important elements to consider before deciding on how to handle a garage door installation. This task isn’t a simple father and son project that a couple of guys can figure out on their own; installing garage doors takes real technical knowledge and experience.
Time is one of the most crucial things that people fail to consider before taking on a do-it-yourself (D.I.Y.) project. Even those who have a working knowledge of how to install garage doors must realize that they have other obligations in life. It is the job of contractors to install these doors, so they for sure have the time.
Most do-it-yourselfers, on the other hand, have to handle this type of project around their work, university, family and social schedules. These make it vital for an individual to consider how long they’ll be working on this project before finishing it.
Warranty. One of the main benefits of hiring a contractor is the fact that professional companies include guarantees when they install a garage door. Meaning that if something goes wrong due to defective materials or bad workmanship, the company has agreed that they’ll come out and fix whatever the issue is.
Materials price. Remember that large contractors who specialize in garage door installations have industry contacts that allow them to secure materials and workmanship service at drastically reduced prices. It’s always good to have a contractor’s discount when buying all of the items necessary to install a great garage door.
In sum, a DIY project will undoubtedly require more time, money and hassle. While a contractor will do it in less time, guarantees a quality job and assures that you get the best out of your garage door.
