Annual Garage Door Maintenance
Garage doors are probably the most neglected aspects of many homes. Most homeowners in Chattanooga TN rarely consider engaging a contractor to service the door provided the door is working perfectly.
However, small overlooked garage door problems can result in severe damages that might be costly to repair in the future. This is why you need to show your door some extra love and have it serviced at least once per year.
You don't have to wait for these signs to have your door serviced and here are some of the reasons why an annual checkup is extremely beneficial:
1. Less Cost in the Long Run
It is here the proverbial 'small leak' ends up sinking the 'great ship.' Regular maintenance will help you spot minor problems that are likely to escalate to major issues that will leave a pretty good dent on your wallet. A good example would be a faulty garage door spring or a misaligned track that can break and cause a more significant problem, which is beyond mere replacement.
2. Increased Lifespan
If you want your door to serve you to its full life expectancy, then it is necessary to have it regularly inspected. A maintenance contractor will occasionally check whether the door hinges are well lubricated to decrease wear and tear, thus enhancing the door's longevity.
3. Safe Functioning
There is nothing as more satisfying as having the peace of mind that all your household members are safe, and nothing poses a risk to their well-being. When your door has the benefit of yearly maintenance, you are assured that it will function efficiently. Annual maintenance will ensure that your door's cables and wires are free from rust, tear, and wear will keep your family safe and sound.
4. Avoid Unexpected Repairs
Imagine the experience of getting stuck outside during extreme weather conditions due to a faulty garage door? Sounds terrible, right? Having your door maintained annually will help prevent any common mishaps and keep your door working all year round.
We offer you excellent all-year maintenance from our skilled garage door experts to ensure your door is always at its optimal performance. Feel free to talk to us to schedule maintenance, and we will be more than willing to assist.
When Does my Garage Door Need To Be Replaced?
Garage doors are usually quite durable, yet nothing lasts an eternity. Your garage door might only need repair, maintenance or cleaning. On the other hand, it could be time for full replacement and brand new garage door installation in Chattanooga TN. If you're having difficulty making this decision, look for these signs you need a new door:
Some units have deteriorated so badly that they simply can't be fixed. For instance, the panels might consist of heavily rusted metal or mostly rotten wood. It's even worse if the wood is infested with insects. You'll probably also need to replace a single-panel unit with large dents and cracks from a storm or accident.
Too Costly to Fix
Another possibility is that repairs to your garage door would cost as much or more than new equipment. You might own a sectional unit with significant damage to the majority of its sections. Things like mold, disintegrating weather seals and broken or cracked windows add to the expense.
Hard to Use
It may be best to purchase a replacement if opening and shutting your door remains difficult and noisy even after proper maintenance. You shouldn't have to struggle with this equipment every time you use it. Keep in mind that many units last around three decades. Their longevity varies depending on the materials and local weather.
Even if your garage door still works and remains intact, you might find several compelling reasons to replace it. You could switch to a lighter or low-maintenance material, a sectional model or a unit with translucent glass panes. An alternative is to eliminate windows and add insulation when you're more concerned about efficiency and security.
If you think you'd benefit from a more attractive, easy-to-use garage door in Chattanooga TN with lower maintenance needs, our skilled installers can help. We could also repair your existing unit if you decide to keep it. Either way, please contact our helpful staff to set up an appointment.
