Are Your Garage Doors, Fall Ready?
The kids head back to school. We watch as leaves change from green to hues of brown, gold, red and fiery orange in the crisp, cool autumn air. The busyness begins again and we find that many of us will scurry from activity to activity for months to come.
All this renewed activity results in extra work for every part of our homes..especially our garage doors. They go up and down as we leave for work, and come back again. We load the kids up for sports, and activities and are in and out of the garage all week.
Are your garage doors ready? Can they handle all the hustle and bustle that fall inevitably brings?
Your garage door opens up over the heads of yourself, your family, your cars, pets and stuff so they need to be in good working order. There are some common garage door problems that occur primarily in the fall and in early spring. When the seasons change, and the temperature starts to rise or fall it can bring with it garage door issues. These climate changes cause metal to contract and expand. When this happens, weak points in the metal on your garage door will begin to break.
