If you were to paint your garage door without doing any maintenance work at all in the last 5 or even 10 years, then a lick of paint may make it look a little bit better on the outside, but if it’s playing up or needs some mechanical work, then you may be wasting your time, and your paint!
We recommend you always take the time to inspect your door and see how it’s operating. Ask yourself the following questions?
- Does it feel heavy?
- Are the springs working okay?
- Is the door a bit stiff?
- Are there any odd vibrations or noises?
- Can you see any damage at all?
If you’re not sure whether your door needs some maintenance work, then we recommend you have it serviced at least once a year. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a sectional door, a roller shutter, round the corner or an up and over door. They all need some maintenance checks through the years and we recommend you do so if you haven’t already.
