Used daily but often neglected, garage doors are really only thought about when they stop working or become damaged. Many Christchurch homeowners and landlords have cracks and broken framing on their garages walls and around the door. Getting an inspection and quote from a garage door specialist will not only let you fix issues but can also prevent them from worsening.
Finding A Garage Door Specialist
The best place to find a garage door specialist is somewhere you have access to a wide variety of trade professionals and here at Builderscrack is that place! To find the perfect repair person for your garage door, you will need to identify the type of door you have, what it is made of and the specific issues which need fixing or addressing.
With some manufacturers requiring a serviceman who has been specifically trained on the installation and repair of their brand of garage door to keep your warranty valid, a quick check on the types of doors that they are able to work on may be needed. Other garage doors will just need someone who is familiar in repairing problems with the type of door that it is.
Homeowners can do some basic maintenance safely on their garage doors such as regularly cleaning it with water and a scrubbing brush, wiping the tracks free of dirt and grime with a dry rag and dusting the springs, but more complex jobs are best left to the experts. A garage door doctor can help fix or replace an earthquake damaged door or frame, replace the high tensioned springs and undertake regular maintenance on the garage door remote and opener.
In the case of some Canterbury properties, your serviceman may refer you to another tradesperson or licensed building practitioner if any earthquake repairs that need doing are structural in nature or affect the water tightness of your property. In most cases they will be able to sort out the majority of issues themselves.
Sometimes it is just not financially viable to fix your garage door due to the cost of time and materials. This is when paying that little bit more and having a new door installed makes great sense.
With the wide range of garage doors available and each type providing its own benefits and visual appeal, take your time to chat with a range of local garage door installers before making your mind up.
