Winter downpours are behind us and the scorching summer sun is still weeks away. Spring is here, which means days of nice weather perfect for moving forward on all those home improvement projects and repairs that have been piling up. This includes garage tasks like cleaning, storage organizing and maintenance needs, which many homeowners tackle in spring. It’s a great time to check for things like winter damage and to refresh the door after months of being subjected to cold weather. So, if it looks as though your garage door could use a little pampering, then do it this spring.
Let’s take a look at why springtime is ideal for new garage door installation and other garage door services in Rancho Cordova, CA.
It’s an easier time for repairs
As we’ve already mentioned, with the spring season comes perfect weather. It’s because of this that you should get a move on with making repairs to worn or damaged moving garage door parts and equipment. Once the hot summer season gets here, you will want to use your garage as a shelter for your vehicles, but a busted garage door can prevent this.
You might consider getting a professional to assess your garage door to catch potential hazards before they surface. A pro will inspect for weak areas, worn parts and rust and suggest necessary repairs or replacements to help you avoid emergencies down the road.
Detect winter wear and tear
It’s not unusual for garage doors to have taken a hard beating over the long winter months. But now that spring has arrived, you really should take advantage of the fantastic weather by performing much-needed garage door maintenance. Or, you might want to look into investing in a more seasonally rounded residential garage door. Any malfunctions should be repaired immediately to keep damage from growing worse. Replace an old or poor quality door with the highest quality new door you can afford. A professional tune-up is also recommended.
Security is important
Like updating your home’s security with new windows, locks and alarm systems, you’ll want to do the same for your garage door; in other words, you want to make sure it’s as secure as a garage door can be. Damage or malfunctions can cause your garage door to not close all the way, leaving an easy entry point for criminals to get inside your house. Before you head out on a weekend trip to enjoy the wonderful spring weather, make sure your garage door is in prime condition and completely secured.
Prevent injuries related to door malfunction
A malfunctioning garage door is a serious safety concern—especially if your household includes children, elderly individuals or pets. Garage doors are heavy and can easily crush a person, while decorative glass windows on doors can produce shattered glass if hit with a flying spring or be broken when the door falls. Garage door motion sensors are great safety upgrades.
