Garage Maintenance for Spring

As the temperature begins to warm up throughout the Emerald Coast, many homeowners are looking forward to enjoying the spring season. However, before you can fully embrace the outdoors, it’s important to take care of some seasonal maintenance tasks, including your garage door system. Spring maintenance for your garage door is essential to ensure that it functions properly throughout the year.

At Bluewater Garage Door Services, we recommend that homeowners lubricate their metal components and inspect their weather stripping for damage. If you notice higher than usual energy bills, it may be time to replace your weather stripping.

Winter May Have Damaged Your Garage Door

Winter in the panhandle has been rough, and we may have a little more before spring actually arrives. The below-freezing temperatures, rain and wind can affect how your garage door operates. This can lead to further damage.

Is the garage door squeaking, squealing or shaking when you open it? Does it hang up or go halfway before stopping in the middle? Does your garage door hang at an awkward angle?

If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you need a specialist from Bluewater Garage Door Services to check out the opener and the door.

Our specialists can perform any necessary maintenance, including replacing broken parts, adjusting door openers, and lubricating the door, as well as the opener. Your garage door and opener will operate like brand new.

Get Your Garage Door Winter Ready

The holiday season has finally arrived in the panhandle and there are loads of reasons to be cheery. The majority of us get to spend time with our families, relax, and eat great food. For the locals, the holiday season also means we get a break from the heat and humidity we are all accustomed to for a majority of the year. We are able to break out our winter clothes, if only for a month or two, then it’s right back to the heat. The winter months here are mild, but they should not be ignored. This is especially true when relating to your house and its components, and more specifically, your garage door system.

Again, the winters in Florida are pretty mild. However, we believe there are still precautions homeowners can take during the colder months to assure their garage door system stays up-and-running continuously. The biggest, and most common, safeguards a homeowner can implement before winter are inspecting your doors and tracks, and lubricating all of the system’s moving parts. Doing these can help assure that your garage door system can open and close when needed. An additional tip we suggest is adding insulation where it is needed. This can not only help protect your vehicles and belongings from the frigid cold, but also assist in cutting down on heating costs.

The winter months should not be ignored no matter how mild. Contact us today or visit our website for additional tips or to set up an inspection with one of our professionals. We hope you have a happy holiday season and an even better new year!

Pre-Winter Garage Issues

The holiday season is underway and the weather in the panhandle is getting chillier by the day. There are several reasons why the holidays can bring about unwanted grief. They are stressful!

Here at Bluewater Garage Door Services we aim to provide our customers with the information necessary to cut down on unwanted expenses regarding their garage door systems.

The winter months can sometimes be detrimental to the well-being of a garage. This is why it is important to have your garage door system adequately prepared for when the temperatures begin to drop. There are various pre-winter garage door issues, and tips, that we advise our customers to use or look out for.

The first, and most common, is if your garage door isn’t opening or closing completely. This is obviously an issue you’d like to nip in the bud before the temperatures drop too low. Not only does this have the possibility to cause unwanted damage to numerous components, but it can also have an adverse effect on your heating bill.

Another precaution homeowners can take is to properly prepare their pipes and water heater. Frozen pipes can potentially be disastrous and cause damage to your garage or living area. Insulating your pipes appropriately can save you hassle and money on energy costs.

Take Care of Your Garage Door

If your garage door is acting cranky lately, maybe it needs a little TLC. After all, it raises and lowers quite often – maybe several times a day. All this up and down can be hard on the opener, and it’s letting you know it needs care.

The opener is probably a piece of equipment you don’t give the first thought to. The door opens when you press the button and closes when you press it again.

While the opener seems simple enough, it actually has many parts and pieces that can wear out due to age and use. All those parts work together to lift a heavy garage door. If you start noticing problems, make note of what isn’t working correctly and call Bluewater Garage Door Services.

We’ll send a trained repair person to check the door and opener out. He will make the necessary repairs to your satisfaction and have your garage door opening and closing like brand new.

Don’t delay. Give us a call or contact us when your garage door opener needs TLC.

Garage Doors Can Develop Issues

Up and down. Up and down. How many times a day does your garage door open and close? Many families use the garage door for entry into their home instead of the front door. The door has always worked perfectly, but now it has some issues.

Does your garage door shake, rattle and roll as it’s opening or closing? Maybe it squeals, reverses direction or makes other strange noises. Maybe it won’t open or close at all.

Just like any other piece of equipment, your garage door and opener experience a lot of wear and tear and many components could fail. While it may seem like a simple fix, garage doors are more complex than you would think. Where would you begin?

The best thing to do is call Blue Water Garage Door Services and let a trained repair person check it out. Once the problem has been identified, repairs can begin, and you’ll be back in business.

Tune Up That Squeaky Garage Door

If your garage door makes screeching noises that send chills down your spine when it opens, you may need a tune-up or minor repairs.

Things can go wrong with a door that goes up and down several times a day. Shaking, squealing or hanging at an odd angle means something is wrong with one or more of the parts that make it go up and down.

If any of these things are happening with your garage door, don’t try to repair it yourself because you could be seriously injured. Instead, call Bluewater Garage Door Services today and get it checked.

All the problems are most likely repairable but leave that decision to a trained repair person. While the opener may seem like a simple device, there are many moving parts that are best left to someone who knows the equipment.

Give us a call today, and your garage door opener will soon be opening and closing like new.
