Garage Door Maintenance
Garage Door Pros
Quality Maintenance Services in Houston
Your garage door won’t last long without proper care. Think about it. If you neglect something, it won’t thrive. The roof of your home requires regular care to stay strong and continue protecting what’s inside. Your car needs to be taken to the mechanic for oil changes and repairs, or else it won’t run. Your garage door is no different. It needs routine maintenance, or else you’ll find yourself needing a replacement soon. Our team is here to ensure your garage door lasts as long as possible.
Why Perform Routine Maintenance?
You might not think performing routine maintenance is important. After all, your garage door is functioning fine right now. Why bother with it? Well, there are several reasons. One, if you let your garage door go too long without maintenance, you’ll need expensive repairs in the future that could have been prevented. Two, an old, ailing garage door is a safety hazard because it can trap children and pets beneath it or damage property. Three, a poorly-maintained garage door is a tempting entry point for pests such as rodents. You can avoid all of these issues by not neglecting the care of your garage door.
What You Can Do Yourself
You’re going to need a professional to inspect your garage door once a year to keep on top of maintenance. That being said, you can do some things yourself to help your garage door in good shape. The most important thing you should do is listen and observe when your garage door opens and closes. If you hear strange, shrieking noises or notice the door slamming down too fast, you can call a professional before any real damage occurs. You can also lubricate your garage door’s tracks twice a year and keep them clear of debris to prevent future problems.
The Dangers of DIY Mentality
There are many DIYers in the world. If you’re one of them, you might be thinking: “Hey, it sounds easy to maintain my garage door myself! I don’t need to bother with a professional.” We caution against this kind of thinking. Without years of experience and special expertise, you’re likely to miss important warning signs that signal the need for repair. By the time the problem becomes obvious, it’s going to be too late. You might require entire parts or even the whole garage door to be replaced at that point. We strongly recommend you don’t DIY all of your maintenance.
