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! A majority of the country is traveling, rounding up the money that they have to buy gifts, and hosting family. We all have enough to worry about and unforeseen costs can really dampen the spirits. 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.
There are several other tips we can offer to prepare your garage for the winter. Please contact us for more information or tips. Our goal is to help make your holiday season smooth!
