Make the Best of Your Garage Door11/28/2013 Back To Blog
We all know how to take care of our homes in Massachusetts, but garage door maintenance and cleaning require special knowledge and special tools. Many garage doors are old and poorly maintained, but they don't necessarily need replacement. If the opener works properly and the other components work at their best capacity, you can fix the small problems without spending too much money improving, at the same time, the image of the door and ensuring the good functionality of the mechanism.
Dents may destroy the painting
The surface of the door may be harassed by different things, but you don't have to proceed with garage door panel replacement just yet. When the painting starts peeling off, it would be your chance to renovate your garage door and change its appearance completely. Get powder coat from any store of Beverly and special coatings for the extra resistance of the material, especially if you have wooden doors. You should peel off the rest of the remaining color, remove the dirt and rust, and make sure the door is completely clean before you start painting the door. Make sure it's a nice day that will allow the paint to dry fast and be extra careful when you are painting to avoid damaged garage door tracks due to paint drops.
Take care of the whole system
Before you do anything, you should check the mechanism and ensure that all the parts are in good working order because you wouldn't want to refresh the appearance of the door and discover a bit later that you need garage door opener replacement. In fact, if you want to keep the old system, you must make sure the opener works fine and should probably invest some money on new safety features. At the same time, you can insulate your door using good materials and making sure the bottom seal is in place and there is not a crack, which would cause energy loss.
