Did you know that the garage door in the average home in the United States goes up and down more than 1,500 every year? Few things in your home see that much activity, so it’s important to keep it working right. Here are a few things to know about your garage doors and how to take care of them.
Overhead Garage Door
You have several choices when it comes to overhead garage doors. Steel, wood, and vinyl are the most common choices. Most garage doors last from ten to 20 years, depending on how heavy the usage, environmental factors, and how well you maintain them. A well-maintained set of garage doors saves you money over its lifetime, and it’s safer for your family. When you take care of your garage doors, they’re less likely to malfunction and cause injury, and they’re less likely to leave you stranded outside your home.
Garage Door Maintenance
A solid preventive maintenance plan for your home’s garage doors includes a thorough review of all the components to diagnose any issues that may be developing. The professional technician will know how to make the necessary adjustments, alignments, and balancing tasks that your system needs over time. The technician should lubricate all the moving parts, and most importantly, perform a full safety check.
