Garage Door Prep For Summer

Residential house with double garage with new door.

Here in Georgia, summer feels like it has already arrived. With temps already into the high 80s and projected to be in the low 90s by week’s end, it is time to think about preparing for summer. Your kids, or neighbors’ kids, are counting down the last few days of the school year. Perhaps your family is counting down to a beach vacation, or maybe you prefer to vacation some place where cooler temps are in the forecast. As much preparation as you may make as summer rolls in, do not forget to prep one of the most used features in your home.

Your garage door withstands a great deal of elements throughout its duration. Opening and closing multiple times a day in extreme temperatures means proper maintenance of your garage door should be a priority to ensure that it works correctly for years to come. Aside from the attic, your garage is the hottest area of your home. Here are tips to prep it for the heat of summer to protect the investment of your home and your family.

  • Clean it out. Dust, dirt, debris – all sneak inside your garage over time as the doors open and close on a regular basis. Not to mention the debris that is tracked in on your vehicles, bikes, and toys; all of that debris gathers in the garage causing stinky smells during the heat of summer, slippery walking spaces, and a messy entrance to your home.
  • Lubricate your garage door. It is important to remember that high temperatures affect how machines and parts operate. It is important to lubricate the hinges, tracks, and rollers of your garage door with a lithium grease or silicone-based lubricate. You do not want to overly lubricate, as a sticky surface will cause debris to stick to the garage door parts. You simply want just enough lubrication that your garage door runs smoothly.
  • Inspect your garage door. A yearly inspection should be done on your garage door to ensure that no damage has occurred. Start by checking the hinges and cables, the track bolts, and springs. Any sign of stress or rust need to be addressed by a professional.
  • Seal your garage. If your garage door does not have a proper seal at the bottom where it meets the floor, then all sorts of debris and critters can make their way inside. If there are gaps at the bottom of your garage door, replace or install weather stripping to seal your garage. This will also make it more energy efficient, which can help lower your AC bill.

Spring break! Not the fun vacation kind, but was in need of a garage door spring replacement. Bill and his team at Habpro provided outstanding service and communication when we needed it! Also a shout-out to Jared for his installation work...you know you're going to get quality work from a Jared...definitely don't settle for Jerrys or Joshes or Jerrods. Thank you Habpro for getting our garage doors back in business.

Bill responded with in 30 minutes of me asking him to see if he could fix a sagging overlayed 16x7 garage door. 6 other garage door companies all said I need a new overlay door. Approximately $6 thousand dollars. Bill look at photos I sent him and had one of his guys Chuck there the next morning. Fixed the door for less than 3% of what the other guys wanted. He’ll get my business when I need that new door. Honest and great people! No joke!!

Bill and his team were professional and on time. Bill took the time (answered my call on Easter!) to explain the process and price before coming out. Garage door is working again and we are so appreciative!

When my garage door stopped working, I called Habpro. After asking me a few questions, the company representative suggested that I might be able to fix the problem myself. He then patiently walked me through the process of adjusting the garage door sensors. Despite my insistence on paying him for his time, knowledge, and patience, he refused any compensation. I have received services from many companies; this was the first time compensation was not expected. My garage door is working properly and my faith in the kindness of people is just a bit stronger.
