Spring Garage Door MaintenanceWinter is finally winding down and spring is on the horizon. This means warmer temperatures, more sunshine and more time outdoors. Spring is a great time to take stock of how the exterior of your home fared this winter, and this should include your garage door. The professionals at Garage Door Repair Company can come out to your home and take a look at your garage door to ensure it is working efficiently. If you need any routine maintenance, we can do that on the spot, without disrupting your day.

Importance Of Regular Garage Door Maintenance

Over time, your garage door can begin to age, just like any other part of your home. It is likely used regularly, it houses your car(s) and many other items that you want to keep safe and may even serve as a storage area, exercise room or indoor batting cage! Whatever you use the space in your garage for, it is important to keep the door working well so that you do not find yourself unable to open it at all one day. You can take a look at some of the components of your garage door and determine if they need to be professionally serviced. Here are some key components of routine garage door maintenance:

1. Watch and listen to your door open and close. If you hear a grinding or vibration, then you may want to consider calling a garage door repair professional.
2. Clear the tracks and check the sensors. It is very common for debris, leaves, toys, or other items to block the tracks or the sensors and this can cause the garage door to stop working or cause damage over time. You can clear out this debris yourself and help your garage door maximize its life.
3. Tighten the hardware including the bolts. These are under constant stress and used each time you open and close your door. This is one task that can be done by a homeowner and save you from having to call in a professional.
4. With all of the movement and friction, it makes sense that your garage door will need to be lubricated periodically to keep it working well. The pulleys and the rollers should be lubricated once or twice a year.

Navigating COVID-19

We are still open as an essential business

To our valued customers,

Recent news about COVID-19 is unfortunate for many of our customers and our local businesses. As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 and as other businesses start the Pause phase of the recent Executive Order, our team at Garage Door Repair Company would like to express our concern for all those who have been affected. Our employees and our customers are our top priority , and we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of each.

We have been closely monitoring the situation since it began and fully support all precautions being taken to prevent any further spread of the virus. Garage Door Repair Company has remained open and in full operation as we understand how important it may be to your daily lives to have a fully functional Garage Door. We continue to follow the plan we set in place in March when this pandemic began and will continue to do so. These are the changes we have made to our policies to help prevent the spread:

  • Our technicians will practice social distancing rather than shaking hands at the door.
  • Estimates and repair recommendations will be done remotely or over the phone while our customers stay inside or quarantined.
  • Preferably all payments will be made by credit card rather than by check.
  • We will continue to clean up after ourselves, wash our hands, and use hand sanitizer often.

The nature of our industry allows us a lot of flexibility in these times as most of our technicians are working in one to two man crews which is well under the guidelines that have been laid out before us. We even have the ability to complete all work without any face to face interactions and take payments over the phone.

We thank you for working with us as we navigate this situation.

With kind regards,

Josh Dutcher and Alex Johantgen
