Overhead door installation is no easy task, so deciding to install one on your own takes serious talent. If you went this route and did a bad job, you may be at risk of legal exposure. Even worse, if someone is seriously injured, you may also face personal injury claims that could get messy for everyone involved. Here are some more reasons why hiring an expert is your best bet to avoid legal exposure when your installation didn’t quite go as planned.
Potential Points of Failure for Overhead Doors
Some installation failures may not be obvious. Many components go into a garage door system that most homeowners and commercial property owners are unaware of.
- Trolley Tracks
We rarely hear of individuals who regularly check and service all of these parts themselves. And non-professionals often overlook inspections and evaluations, leaving room for potential breaks or failures (and sometimes injuries). We always recommend having your doors serviced by an expert instead of doing a bad overhead door job yourself to prevent these kinds of failures.
Your Own Safety
Another reason to contact an overhead door expert is that they understand all the moving parts involved. Each component, from coils to trolley release cords, must work properly for maximum safety and security. If you attempt to fix a bad installation job, it could result in injuries, yours during the repair or others in the future, and lead to even more and costly repairs down the road. By hiring an expert to fix your bad repair job, you are not only avoiding legal exposure in the future but also saving yourself time and resources (and possibly avoiding injuries to yourself and others).
