When you have a garage door system that works, things are wonderful. It’s such a small thing, but when you arrive home after a long day, and your house automatically opens to welcome you, it can be one of the most relaxing experiences in the world.
But, a malfunctioning, or old garage door system can quickly become a major inconvenience.
Inside your garage door there is a spring system, and a weight to counterbalance it. Over time, between the average 4 to 6 times per day a person opens and closes their garage door, this spring can wear out very quickly, which can become a major inconvenience.
While wear varies from one place to another, the humid weather of Douglasville, GA can also cause extreme wear on your garage door system, due to the intense heat and moisture, can cause the system to become worn out much more quickly than in a cooler, less dry environment.
So what does this mean for you and your life?
Imagine that your garage door system fails to function properly, and one day as you’re heading out to work, you find your garage door system gets stuck half-way. You can’t leave, you’re going to be late, but you need to stop and spend an hour figuring out how to fix it, then hope it opens again when you come home.
Additionally, in the suburban, rural atmosphere of Douglasville, GA, it is especially important that you have a secure garage door that runs smoothly, because it is many times, especially on a single level home, one of your main ways of going in and out of the home.
Technology moves quickly, and also wears out quickly. If you’ve had your garage door system for longer than 2-3 years, it would be a good idea to consider replacing it with a newer, more efficient model today.
