Avoid Expensive Garage Door Repairs By Doing These Four Things


Your garage door was a BIG investment, we get it. The last thing you want to do is spend even MORE money getting it repaired every couple years. Well, if you do these four things, your garage should be in tip top shape for decades to come!

Start from the beginning…

Quality Matters!

If you’re thinking the price of something seems too good to be true, it probably is! When you pay top dollar, it’s usually because you’re getting a high quality product. Companies with a strict code of conduct will do their job well. A company that charges you more actually cares about training their staff and investing time into completing projects, as opposed to other companies who charge you less and are cutting corners. Make sure to ask why they are choosing certain components over others. What kind of insulation are they using? How thick is the steel? Remember, the better the quality, the more durable, and the fewer repairs!

Doing a Little Bit Goes a Long Way

Just investing in your garage door isn’t enough. You need to be prepared to put in a little bit of work and now and then. Not hours and hour, but about 10-15 minutes every few months to make sure all parts of your garage door are well lubricated and everything is in working order.

If your garage door is over two years old, you should be doing a tune-up at least once a year.

Act Fast

If you think there’s an underlying issue with your garage door, call us in right away! Garage doors are the largest moving component of your home and can cause serious injury. That little grinding sound may not be anything of notice, but it’s much safer to have it checked out.

Don’t Try This At Home!

Some people think they can fix anything and will start fiddling around. Well, don’t try to fix your garage door yourself. As stated before, the garage door is the largest moving component of your house and if it’s not counterbalanced correctly, it could potentially cause serious injury. So, make sure to call us so that we can professionally fix your garage door.
