Now that 2021 is here, it’s time to break out the homeowner checklist and assess your maintenance and enhancement goals for the new year. These same strategies can be applied across the board, but our concerns are with your garage door, so let’s take a look.
Of course, it’s winter right now, so you want to make sure your garage is providing proper insulation. Ensuring that it has no holes in it and is aligned correctly will help keep the interior of your home as warm as it can be. The garage door is the largest door in your home, and when you think of it that way, it’s easy to see the impact it has on heating and cooling.
Another consideration for 2021 is making sure you check the garage door rollers and springs. These are the parts most likely to wear out on your garage door. Since they do have a natural life span that is shorter than the door’s itself, you will more than likely need to repair or replace rollers and springs at some point. Checking them will provide information about when that may occur and give you a chance to perform routine maintenance.
Here’s a bigger question? Do you want or need a new garage door? An improvement in the garage door area can increase the overall value of your property and dramatically improve its curb appeal.
