Get Your Garage Door Ready for Spring

Spring officially started a couple weeks ago, but it’s finally starting to get (and stay) warm in the Indianapolis region. Is your garage door ready for the warm weather? Have you given it a quick inspection and scheduled professional service?

Garage Door Spring Ready

Now is a good time to do so—it’s the beginning of spring. After winter, it’s recommended to take care of garage door maintenance.

This ensures timely repairs for any damage done by the winter weather and gives you the peace of mind that your door is more likely to operate without problems for the months ahead.

Maintenance and service is something to be handled by experienced professionals but can be helpful for you to know and keep in mind.

It includes things like:

  • Inspection of the springs, rollers, cables, etc. for signs of wear and tear
  • Lubrication of moving parts
  • Door balance
  • Reverse mechanism test
  • Force setting test
  • Photo eye test
  • And more

Sometimes a tune-up may be necessary, but other times you may need a full replacement. Whatever the issue is, it’s better to take care of it sooner so your garage door can perform reliably again. Not to mention new doors look much better than old or damaged one, and that’s something to keep in mind if you’re trying to increase the curb appeal (and value) of your home this spring.

Additional Tips for Spring Home Maintenance

Besides the garage door, it’s also recommended to inspect and repair (or replace) your home’s:

  • Windows
  • Doors (front, storm or patio)
  • Roofing and chimneys
  • Gutters
  • Exterior walls

Inside your house, be sure to check the attic for mold or signs of water damage. If the space isn’t properly insulated, now is also the time to install new insulation—before the summer rolls around.
