I was having issues with my garage door and I called around to different repair companies to find out how much they charge to fix it. They told me it depends on what is broken, but they said it sounds like the garage door spring. They gave me an estimated amount it would cost to fix it. After hearing what it would cost, I wanted to see if I could find any information on DIY garage door spring replacement.
First, I wanted to make sure that was the problem. I went online and started looking for information about how to know when your garage door spring needs replaced. I found the information I needed to determine that was the problem.
Then I started looking for information on DIY garage door spring replacement. I found a few videos and also instructions that list what you have to do step by step to fix it.
After looking through the instructions and watching the videos, I decided to call a friend of mine that recently fixed his garage door. He said that was the same problem he had with his and he could help me fix it when he’s off work. He said I would just need to get the part for it and told me where I could find it at.
I went and bought the part and made arrangements for him to come over after work so he could walk me through the whole process. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be to fix my garage door and I am glad I learned a little about it instead of paying someone else to do it. It saved me a good bit of money and it works just like it should.
