Fix garage doors today to decorate them tomorrow
When you know the enemies, you can take better preventive measures ahead. So, think of your garage door enemies. During winter, garage door springs and other parts of the system will freeze. Lubricants will harden and snow will prevent the door from opening. It’s important for you to remember that metal garage door parts will contract during the cold winter days. This is the natural reaction of metal to cold. So, your job is to protect parts and take care of the whole system so that you won’t suffer with endless problems during the winter and especially during Christmas.
The best thing to do is to maintain the system before the heavy winter comes. Since the winter is long, it’s best to repeat garage door maintenance later and the time before Christmas is ideal. This way, you can be sure that you will spend Christmas Eve with friends and not trying to fix the garage door opener or waiting for the guys of Homeland Garage Doors. If you have already maintained well the door in the fall, all you have to do now is inspect well the system once more and lubricate the parts.
It’s best to pay attention to the most fragile parts. Make sure the opener is set to work at the right force limit and all its parts are operational. Check the torsion and extension springs and make sure they are clean and well lubricated. This is also important for both rollers and tracks. Garage door tracks get dirty easier during the winter and it’s best to ensure that the rollers will slide smoothly and without obstructions. If your garage door is ready to enjoy festivities you will, too! Isn’t it better to spend your Christmas holidays decorating your garage door instead of fixing it! Think smart today to enjoy in a few days!
