And just like that, it’s already 2020. Many folks have New Year’s resolutions to eat healthily and stay active but think about one to improve your garage. We put together this list of tips that will help keep your residential garage door repair free and looking great for the new year.
Minor Residential Garage Door Repairs and Appearance
Perhaps your door only needs a fresh coat of paint or has a broken spring replaced or a new cable installed to give it a unique look or back to working correctly. Painting your garage door will boost curb appeal and appearance and make it a pleasure to come home each day. Fixing a spring or replacing a cable will also allow you to finally check it off of your to-do list for the new year. You also can get a jump on spring cleaning and set aside some time to tidy up and clean the inside of the garage.
Regular Door Maintenance and Inspection
Right now is a great time to start your monthly inspection of parts and garage door hardware. It’s also the time to lubricate any moving parts and test to make sure the opener works appropriately. Also, check the reversal feature, which is a vital safety function of the door. If you need help with either, our overhead garage door company can help.
Replacing an old broken garage door
It’s essential to make sure your door is always operating as it should. Safety is a significant factor. Many residential homeowners use their garage door as the main entrance when they go in-and-out of their home. The beginning of the year is an excellent time to have your door replaced because, in the spring and summer months, the door gets used more often. Replacing an old garage door with a new one is a significant task and requires professionals. The time it takes to replace a garage door is about 3 and 1/2 hours.
