Meteorological Spring made its glorious arrival this past Monday, and Daylight Saving Time will kick in next Sunday the 14th. What kind of winter has it been around your house?
With garage doors getting a workout all winter in the “car protection” mode, it is possible that you may find a few pieces of hardware (screws, nuts, bolts) strewn on the front half of your garage floor. After picking them up to avoid a flat tire, have a look around on the door to see where they came from. If you can’t make out from where, how is the garage door functioning lately? Run a cycle on the door and watch. If you observe buckling or strange noises while in travel, you may need a low-involvement repair. Call Dan at DDM and get confidence, with knowledgeable advice.
This advice may necessitate a repair, or simply a lubrication. But if you get it addressed now, you can save trouble and expense down the road. Have a GREAT spring!
(Warning: As always, be careful around garage doors and their parts, and call a professional for the work if you have any doubt about your ability to service them safely).
