Many people forget about their garage door until it breaks and that is usually at the most inconvenient time . With our yearly tune up we will make sure your garage door is functioning properly and is safe for future use. Taking care of your garage door before problems happen will save you money in the long run and ensure the safety of your garage door and others.
If your garage door is behaving at this moment, you can probably keep it working that way almost indefinitely if you follow these tips, These same tips may also correct problems that are just beginning to appear: Remember to fix the problem before it arises to ensure safety and no further issues .
Examine the rollers and tracks on the garage door. If you can’t remember the last time you cleaned them, clean the rollers and tracks with a good brushing and to lubricate the rollers and axles. The bearings on rollers can also wear out; replace any rollers that don’t operate smoothly.
We can change the rollers to nylon rollers instead of plastic to achieve a more quiet garage door
Tighten the hardware. The tracks that guide the rollers on an overhead garage door are assembled in sections and attached to the garage with brackets. Makes sure the sections are well secured and that the screws and bolts that hold the brackets are tight.
Check the cables and pulleys. Spring operated garage doors have cables and pulleys that may wear out over time. Frayed cables and damaged pulleys need to be replaced—a job best done by professionals.
Test the door balance. A garage door should require only a few pounds of pressure to move it up and down. If springs wear out and lose their resiliency, a garage door opener may need to work extra hard to lift the door. This can quickly wear out the motor on the garage door opener. Replacing worn-out springs is a job for a professional technician.
Test the autoreverse feature on the door opener. Garage door openers are designed to automatically reverse and lift the door if it encounters an obstacle on the way down to the floor. If this feature no longer works correctly, the heavy door poses a safety hazard and the door opener should be repaired or replaced.
We will inspect your garage door with our inspection tune up to ensure that your garage door is safe and preforming properly , also we will lubricate and make any adjustments that need to be made

When you clean up and ditch the unnecessaries taking up space in your garage and then get organized with the help of storage racks and shelves, you can have an orderly garage that has the space to park your car and do various projects! Here are five ways to save space and get your garage organized.
Ditch the Unneccessaries
Get Clean & Organized

1) Ditch the Unneccessaries
The first step in getting your garage organized is to throw away the clutter and stuff you never use. If you haven’t used it in a year–it’s time to throw it out.
2) Get Clean & Organized
Now that you have thrown away unneeded items, give your garage a deep cleaning. Start at the back of the garage and clean outwards. Scrub the garage door and floor, and if needed, spruce them up with a fresh coat of paint.
ProTip: To get your garage organized, consider itemizing things to store them into “regularly used”, “annually used”, and “sentimental storage” areas so you can access them only when and if needed.
3) Wall Storage Unit
Wall storage is a must-have when it comes to organizing your garage. Open shelves and better than shelves with doors because they allow you to see where everything is and access it easier. Another good idea is to make a simple tool rack and get those garden tools off the floor.
4) Ceiling Storage
There is so much available space on your garage ceiling! Make space on the floor by installing a ceiling storage to put things you don’t need access to very often. This is the perfect place for holiday items that you only need to pull down once a year.
5) Install Pegboards
Pegboards are relatively inexpensive and easy to install and help you keep track of all your tools. They can be cut to size and even painted to customize the look; several manufacturers make a wide variety of compatible hooks, shelves, and organizers.
Keeping Your Garage Organized
Now that your garage is organized, make sure you keep it that way! Be sure to put everything back where you found it and every few months, do a light cleaning to keep the dust at bay. Once a year, go back through and weed out items you just don’t need anymore.
