It’s hard to believe it’s already 2017. As you set New Year’s resolutions to exercise more and eat right, consider setting goals related to your garage door. Here are four resolutions to set if you want to keep your garage door running smoothly all year long.
Resolve to Maintain Your Garage Door
Starting now, make regular garage door maintenance a habit, bearing in mind that some tasks only need to be performed annually. Once a month, take a look at the hardware, lubricate all moving parts, test the garage door opener, check the safety reversal and ensure the door is balanced properly. If you need help performing any of these garage door maintenance tasks, let the professionals at Overhead Door Co. of Greater Cincinnati™ carry out the job for you.
Promise to Replace a Malfunctioning Garage Door
It’s important that you operate your garage door only if it meets important safety guidelines. If you continue to use the garage door even when it malfunctions, you could be endangering your family and property. Plus, replacing your garage door before spring and summer means it will be ready to go when you want to spend more time in the yard. Just remember, this is a big undertaking, so leave garage door installation to the professionals.
Pledge to Keep Your Garage Door in Good Repair
Maybe it’s a bit premature to think about replacing your garage door. Perhaps all it needs is a few repairs or a fresh paint job. Keeping your garage door clean and in good condition not only improves your home’s appearance but also helps maintain the door so you can delay the need for repair.
Vow to Keep the Garage Clean
The tidiness of your garage may not affect how the garage door functions, but you’ll be much happier going in and out of there if the space is neat and orderly. No matter the size of your budget and DIY skill level, you can resolve to get your garage organized in 2017 and keep it that way all year long!
