The change of seasons has both pleasant and perilous effects on us and the things we use. Let us take garage doors, for instance. Seasonal changes have a harmful effect on Garage doors. This is why you should call a garage door professional for the seasonal maintenance of your garage doors.
 
Why do garage doors need seasonal maintenance?
 
If you observe closely, you will see signs of wear and tear on your garage door during every season as seen below.

Spring 

Spring is the best time not only for spring cleaning your home but for annual garage door maintenance too. During spring, the weather is pleasant and easy to work with no tension on the metal components as well.
 
Call a professional garage company for garage door inspection. Ask them to check and lubricate the torsion springs, extension springs, lift cables, track hardware, etc. 

Summer
 
Summer may cause many problems for your garage door. The scorching rays of the sun may fall on the photoelectric sensors. This prevents the door from closing. The extreme heat of the summer may cause the paint to peel and your wooden doors may lose their aesthetic appeal. It is time to touch up your door with a fresh coat of paint. 
 
The extreme temperatures heat up the garage to even 1000. This causes your steel doors to expand and get jammed. Then, you must adjust the limits of the garage door opener. 
 
Summer is also the time to wash your garage doors with a mild detergent. You must also check the rubber weatherstripping and replace them if necessary.
For all these simple maintenance tasks, call a reliable garage door company. They can give you same-day service at affordable costs.
 
Fall
 
Fall (also known as Autumn) brings a bunch of dirt and debris with the falling leaves and blowing wind. Garage door rollers get worn out due to the buildup of dust on them. The dust can clog up on the garage door tracks and damaging them. If the photoelectric sensor is blocked up with dust, your garage door will not open or close properly. Do regular maintenance of your garage door each Fall to prevent additional damage.

Winter
 
Winter is worst for garage doors. The moisture causes wood doors to warp. There are signs of corrosion on your steel doors due to the moist climate. Aluminum garage doors also show signs of deterioration in coastal cold temperatures.
Better get your garage door weatherstripping changed before winter to prevent moisture from seeping in.
