Your Springtime Maintenance Checklist
Now that the warmer weather is rolling in and spring is finally here, many of us are relieved to escape the frigid winter climate and the harsh elements that accompany it. However, just because winter is behind us doesn’t mean it still can’t continue to cause problems for homeowners across the region.
For instance, after the long and cold winter, it can be common for the spring system on a garage door to break because of the changes in temperature, requiring garage door repair for homes in Montgomery County and the surrounding areas. Additionally, now that the snow and ice have melted, you may be noticing issues with your roof like leaks, loose shingles, and even membrane separation, indicating that you need roof maintenance and repair.
Let’s take a look at some common issues regarding these two essential components of your home, and what you can do about it.
Your Garage Door
As the mercury continues to rise in our area, you’ll be using your garage door much more often than in the wintertime. In fact, between BBQs, children playing and riding their bikes, and seasonal outings, it’s possible that families around Montgomery County will be using their garage doors two to three times as much when compared to winter.
All this means more wear and tear for your garage door. When you factor in the drastic changes in temperature, it can be a recipe for some serious issues, like a broken spring system, damaged door, or even worse — all of which can be dangerous to your family and property.

We have experience with just about every brand and model, so we can inspect your garage door to ensure that it’s well lubricated, functioning properly, and ready for another season of wear and tear.
