Preparing your garage door for summer

Around this time of year, most people are more than ready for the more temperate climates and longer days that are associated with spring. After a long Chicago winter, it’s only natural to anticipate the upcoming seasons with a unique fervor that is brought on by the usual polar vortex and dreary days of a midwestern winter. With this being the case, it is important to consider your homes maintenance and continued performance, specifically in regards the the parts that have to face the elements. Your garage door is one of those parts. It’s important to do a yearly tune-up on your garage to ensure the longevity of what was once a large investment in your homes value. A tune-up consists of lubricating all moving parts, changing your rollers, weighing and balancing your door, and ensuring that all of your springs, cables, tracks, and your opener is all in excellent working condition and ready and able to perform safely over the next year. This small, preemptive maintenance can help secure your investment in your garage and safety for yourself. Most importantly you should not let the weather affect your garage door negatively if it doesn’t have to. A smile fix like a garage door tune up can positively impact your homes value for a long time to come by ensuring the performance and aesthetic of your home.
