There are few things we neglect and take for granted as much as garage doors. For most of us, they are just the means to an end. They exist only to store and protect our belongings. The only time we realize how important they are is when they develop a problem or stop working properly and we have trouble keeping them closed and locked or even opening them. That is when we realize how instrumental garage doors are in ensuring the safety of our belongings against natural and criminal elements.
What we often forget is that the garage door is as much a part of our homes as the kitchen, the dining room, or even the front yard, and therefore requires the same kind of attention and care. However, it’s never too late. You can make up for the months of neglect by treating your garage doors to some spring servicing and generous greasing.
There’s No Time Like Spring-time for Fixing!
Spring is the perfect time for servicing and fixing everything that needs mending. As there is increased activity in the summer months, it is only natural that there will be a lot of opening and closing of doors, be it to fetch things or store things, and if a neglected door decides to throw a tantrum, it might result in you breaking a sweat or having to put in a whole lot of elbow grease, thereby effectively throwing a wrench in your plans.
But worry not, these beasts can be tamed easily. All they need is some spring-time loving’. Good weather makes it easier for the engineer to carry out the servicing more effectively. A dry garage door will make it easy for them to spot any problems or malfunctioning.
The fact that healing takes place faster in dry conditions holds true for garage doors as well. Repair work and mending are much more effective when it is dry.
Another thing that we often overlook is the fact that a garage door has a significant number of moving parts, for instance, remotely operated doors or manual door handles, hinges and whatnot, and they all have to function in a specific manner for the door to work properly. A regular servicing, will thus, ensure that the garage door operated perfectly.
You might consider regular servicing an unnecessary expenditure but bear in mind that this could prove to be a mistake that costs you dearly, for having to replace them altogether could burn quite a big hole in your pocket. A regular service, therefore, is a solid investment, that will help you save money in the long run. After all, it is true what they say- “A stitch in time, saves nine.”
