Everyone wants their garage door to last as long as it can. Let’s face it, no one wants to spend any more money than they have to on their garage, and they usually don’t want to spend a lot of time thinking about it, either.
Here at the Overhead Door Company of Lexington, we spend a lot of time helping people with their garage door problems. We help them find new garage doors to replace their old ones, and we also help them fix their current doors whenever they have trouble.
And even though our customers appreciate that we’re always here to help them, we also understand that people are even happier when they don’t have any garage door problems to address.
So what about avoiding problems? We have answers for that, too.
First, make sure you’re kind to your door. Any physical damage is liable to affect how the door runs on its tracks, how it looks aesthetically, and how well it keeps out weather and pests.
Another good piece of advice is to minimize frivolous use of the door opener. No matter what, the giant springs on your door only have so many ups and downs in them before they break. That means that users who open and close their doors more often each day will have to replace their springs quicker than those who don’t. Sometimes it can’t be avoided, but it’s worth taking into consideration.
In short, take it easy on your garage door, and it will last longer for you. And when you do have issues, as always, just contact us here at the Overhead Door Company of Lexington.
We’re always ready to help!
