Is Installing a Garage Door a DIY Project?

This Old House recognized several DIY home improvement suggestions in 2014 and although garage doors are always a point of conversation when curb appeal is addressed, replacing or removing an aging wood or steel garage door can be dangerous and are not a typical do it yourself job. Replacing garage doors are best left to the professionally trained technicians who can insure the garage door is removed and the new garage door is installed safely, and correctly for you and your entire family to enjoy for years to come.

Most homeowners do not realize garage doors with sections have springs and tracks with rollers that are very heavy, and the garage door panels are actually more large than they look. Springs and cables on the garage door hold a great deal of tension to raise garage doors up and down and can quickly release without control and leave even the most handy person who is savvy with tools and other home improvement jobs in serious trouble. We highly recommend to homeowners they should consider contacting a professional garage door company for an estimate - like Toledo Door and Window - Home of the Talking Door. You might find the savings is actually greater than you imagined and without any labor on your part, BUT with a great warranty on parts and labor!

A new garage door can bring fresh curb appeal and long-lasting resale value to your home. Garage doors vary in price depending on the type of door you select to compliment your home. Features of your new garage vary from material, size, insulation and finishing design details - costing as little as a $600 to as much as $3800 for two car, fully insulated, solid wood garage door, whereas steel garage doors with insulation can start in the $1000 range.
