Summer is definitely in full swing. The heat can take a toll on not only your energy level but also on the functionality of your garage. That is why it is incredibly important to keep up on your garage door maintenance checks. You keep your body hydrated during the heat, you make sure to do check ups on your car over time, and you should never put your garage on the list of things you don’t check. So often we get emergency calls because people haven’t checked up on their garage door in years, they ignored all of the warning signs it was giving, and then they call us in a panic because the door won’t work and they need to get it open.
There is no reason you should have to call us in a panic. If you check the systems regularly and keep all the hinges and springs properly lubricated you can keep up on issues at the root of the cause when it becomes a problem and then you don’t run into a door that has taken too much stress and stops working altogether. We recommend having the door checked out at least once every six months, this is a good amount of time to make sure we catch any potential issues!
