Like anything with moving parts, your garage door requires some regular maintenance in order to keep it in good working order. Performing regular maintenance on your garage door will also help prolong its life, so it will continue to function properly for many years to come. Here are some tips for maintaining your garage door.
Are You Available 24/7? Most companies stop taking in customers after work hours, but there are also companies who go the extra mile and offer 24 hour service. If you go home late at night, or are usually in a hurry, it’s better to go with a company that’s just a phone call away.
Install a ceiling or attic fan. This kind of fan operates by drawing hot air from inside the garage and exhausting or blowing it back outwards. The fan should be situated near the ceiling or higher than 4 feet above the floor. This will involve creating an opening on the wall of your garage, and you’ll need a nearby electric outlet to plug the fan in.
When I was pregnant with my boys, I was singing with a group that was doing Handel’s Messiah. I absolutely believe that they learned a good bit of it while in utero. Their second Christmas (they would have been about 18 months old), the Messiah was on TV. My one son sang along with the Halleluiah Chorus. He had a little trouble with the pronunciation, but was spot on with the notes. Another would stand in front of the TV and conduct. He was right on the beat.

Whether you are at home or not, your windows and doors should all have locks. Flimsy doorframes should be replaced. All entryways should appear secure. Burglars will rarely spend more than 5 minutes trying to break into your home. If you make it difficult for them, they most likely will not find it worth the effort. Good lighting is one of the best deterrents to crime. Most spotlights are inexpensive and easy to install, and will keep burglars away from your home at night. Anywhere around your home that could provide a good hiding place for prowlers should be lit up.
But just think for a moment of the front door of one of the most famous and prestigious homes in the world. Apart from a brief period at the start of the 20th C when it was dark green, this door has been photographed thousands of times with images all round the world and is immediately recognised.
You don’t have to change the front door colour of course as anything goes with black. In urban areas black is definitely the chicest colour for your davidson. Pair up the door furniture and handles in a classy metallic brass or sleek chrome finish and your roller garage door would really be making an impact on the neighbourhood. You may even have black railings and gates or a lamppost or garden feature in the same finish. After all it is a relatively easy colour to match up.
Use a lightweight oil to lubricate your garage door’s moving parts. Do not use heavy oil or grease, as these can cause gummy, difficult-to-remove buildup.
