Residential Garage Door Services in Jacksonville
An important part of feeling comfortable at home is knowing that everything
is in good shape. If your garage door is in disrepair, for example, you
might be nervous about how well it will fare during the next hurricane.
The garage door repair professionals at A1A Overhead Door Company provide
garage door repairs for Jacksonville residents. We can ensure that your garage door is as
beautiful, functional, and as secure as possible.
Important Maintenance Tasks
To maximize your garage door's lifespan, you'll need to dedicate
some time to maintenance. While there are some tasks you can do yourself,
others are best left to the professionals.
Lubricate the Hinges: If your garage door creaks whenever it opens or closes, it's time to
lubricate the hinges. Experts recommend applying a small amount of lubricant
twice a year.
Paint/Stain the Door: Depending on your garage door material, you may need to paint or stain
your door to maintain its elegant appearance. Vinyl doors do not require
any painting or staining.
Rebalance the Door: If your door is out of balance, your opener may wear out prematurely. It's
a good idea to perform a garage door balance test once a month or so.
Benefits of Professional Repair
Like other homeowners, you probably get some pride out of performing household
repairs yourself. However, hiring a garage door company has a number of benefits.
No Risk of Injury: There are many ways to get injured when performing DIY garage door repairs—particularly
when working with the springs. To eliminate your risk of injury, have
a trained professional provide repairs.
Thorough Repairs: Though you may be able to make a few minor fixes, larger jobs may be more
than you can handle. A professional can provide significant repair services
that last a long time.
Maximum Safety: Poor repairs won't just cost you more down the road—they may
also compromise your safety. A garage door expert will ensure that your
garage door stands up to strong winds and persistent burglars.
Hurricane Code Compliance
By law, all Florida garage doors must comply with the state's Hurricane
Code. According to the Florida Alliance for Safe Homes, 80% of the damage
caused by Hurricane Andrew occurred as a result of wind entry through
garage doors. Some garage door companies in Jacksonville sell subpar garage
doors for very low prices, putting Jacksonville residents at great risk.
A1A Overhead Door Company, on the other hand, is committed to the safety of Jacksonville residents.
If you suspect that your garage door isn't up to code, or if it requires
any kind of repairs or maintenance, don't hesitate to contact us we
will fix your garage door.
