Your garage is an important part of your home. It keeps you, your family, your vehicles and possessions safe and secure from weather and potential intruders. Over 70% of families utilize their garage daily as the primary entrance to their home using remote controls, outside keypads, inside wall units and Smart devices to enter and exit. Most homeowners will replace their garage door maybe once or twice during their home ownership. If your door is old and outdated, visibly warped, rusted or busted or struggles to operate, it’s time to check out a brand-new garage door. Because you can get up to an 85% return on investment, it’s one of the smartest home renovation projects you can do.

When you’ve decided garage door replacement is the right solution, you’re probably in unfamiliar territory to take on installation yourself. However, you might ask yourself, “Why should I call a garage door company when I can buy my own door and install it myself? It can’t be that hard, can it? I’ll just call my neighbor Fred and we’ll get it done. I’ll save some money, right?” Here are some things to consider before you try to tackle garage door replacement and installation yourself.

  • It can be hard and complicated. Garage doors are large and very heavy. They don’t arrive in once piece and come with lots of parts that are critical to the safety and performance of your door, like door panels, hinges, brackets, bearings, tracks, springs, rollers, etc. If any one part isn’t installed or adjusted properly, you’ve got trouble.
  • The right tools. You probably have the basic toolbox and think that’s enough to get the job done. But do you have an impact gun or winding bars? What else do you think you’ll need?
  • Time. If you’re handy around the house, expect garage door installation to take 8 to 12 hours or more. If you work five days a week, would you really want to take your weekend time to tackle a project of this size? Don’t forget you’ll have to disassemble your old door and find a place to haul it away to as well.
  • Warranty at risk. When you install your own garage door, most manufacturers will not honor the warranty. A huge consideration to forego doing the work yourself.
