Get familiar with your garage door with these simple, yet great tips about garage systems
Clean your garage floor to prevent problems
One of the first things that can cause problems with your garage door happens because the garage floor hasn't been recently cleaned. Hose it down at least annually to prevent slip hazards, stains or pock marks caused by leaking auto fluids or road salt. When it's clean, the door and your weather stripping will fit much better to provide the effective insulation especially needed during really cold winters. A maintenance inspection by one of our trained professionals will also insure that your door is safe and operates properly this winter season.
Door balance matters
If you observe your automatic opener system struggling to open and close your door, the solution is not necessarily to have a replacement and to get a more powerful garage door opener. The problem could be related to improper door balancing. It can be easily addressed by applying the necessary adjustments.
Watch out for pest invasion
Pests like termites and carpenter ants can damage the garage walls and door. To avoid any damage from pest invasions, you should regularly check the walls and door for signs of invasion like dark and moist spots, especially if the door and garage walls are made of wood.
Garage Doors Can Improve Your Curb Appeal
If you are looking for something that will increase the value of your home through its curb appeal, choosing a nice garage door design is advisable. Garage door experts in Billerica, however, suggest that you do not sacrifice the security features with style.
R-value for garage doors
R-value is a measurement of thermal efficiency of a garage door, or how well it insulates. If you have a room directly above or adjacent to your garage, you will want to purchase a garage door that offers a high R-value. Our experts can help you check the door’s R-value.
