This time of year is a tough one for homeowners. Not only are you worried about your furnace glitching, you’re also hoping that your garage door doesn’t freeze to the ground or stop working altogether. The squeaking gets louder, and the grinding of metal on metal becomes a staple of your morning routine.
Winter is our most social time of year at Deluxe Door Systems.
Because we have more garage door repair house visits than any other time of year. The best part for you is – we’ve done so many repairs that we’re pretty darn good at them.
Winter to Springs
Springs are our top garage door repair all year round, but they flare up like angry teens more in the winter than any other season. All of that cold metal moving around and scraping leads to replacing springs. There’s a good chance that’s the issue.
Your garage door may in fact sound like Chewbacca at this point. You may think something’s wrong, but it could just be your garage door telling you it’s thirsty. Try using a garage door lubricant to hydrate the rollers, springs, and other joints.
Weather stripping is another repair that may need addressed in the winter. Cold water drips down and pools around your garage door. Ice forms, and the next morning, it’s like ripping off a bandaid. The weather stripping just shreds off the bottom of your door. This eliminates the barrier between your garage door and the elements, which can cause some problems. Not to mention your garage loses part of its insulation.
At Deluxe Door Systems, we do garage door repair like a boss in the winter, and we’d love to earn your business and your trust. We do repair in Columbus and the surrounding areas, like Hilliard, Clintonville, Bexley, Worthington, Pataskala, Gahanna, Plain City, and everywhere in between.Contact Us!
