Can you believe that it's Spring already? That means lots of yardwork, chores, and maintenance duties around our 4-acre farm. But you don't have to have chickens and a big yard to feel the pressure of everything that needs to be done. In fact, you may already be so busy that you've forgotten some very important DIY details!
Your garage door is an important part of your life, even though you probably rarely think about it. Most people don’t give their garage door a second thought – until something breaks. Repairs can be expensive – especially if you haven’t taken the time to find a trusted professional to make those repairs.
We've teamed up with GarageDoorCare.com to tell you about a free three-step program to help homeowners achieve Garage Door Peace-of-Mind in 2016. Follow these simple tips to avoid expensive headaches down the road!
1. Lubricate your garage door twice a year (it’s easier than you think).
Most homeowners have never lubricated their garage door, leading to creaks and other strange noises. By going to GarageDoorCare.com That’s why you may hear squeaks and groans. Over time, that could lead to trouble. But lubricating a garage door is easy. A quick visit to GarageDoorCare.com will show you how to lubricate the door, rollers and hinges, and save you big money down the road!
2. Sign up for a free twice-a-year email garage door lubrication reminder
The International Door Association (IDA), a worldwide trade association of garage door and access professionals – and the sponsor of GarageDoorCare.com – invites consumers to register for twice-a-year emails that will remind them that it’s time to lubricate the garage door. And signing up doesn’t mean a flood of emails or sales calls. Two simple emails a year… that’s all.
3. Find a trusted, local garage door pro well in advance of a problem
When your garage door stops working you’ll need a professional. It’s not something a homeowner should try to repair themselves – a garage door is the largest and heaviest moving object in a home, and can cause severe injuries or even death if damaged or misused. That’s when identifying a pro well ahead of time will pay off. GarageDoorCare.com offers a “Find a Qualified Professional” page through which homeowners can find experienced, local garage door service and repair businesses that are IDA members committed to operating their businesses by the IDA Code of Business Conduct.
