According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), shoppers are getting festive by focusing their spending on gifts and non-gift purchases, such as holiday decorations. The NRF adds that consumers plan to spend big at various brick-and-mortar and online retailers as they check the names of family and friends off their holiday gift lists this year.
In addition, the NRF annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics revealed that a substantial percentage of Americans plan to celebrate the quickly approaching winter holiday season.
As there are only 22 days until major retailers offer significant discounts on products in almost every category – from apparel to electronics; it’s paramount to ensure your garage door doesn’t prevent you from scoring epic deals on holiday gifts. To do this, you’ll want to hire a local garage door service professional.
Additional reasons to be proactive by contacting a repair professional this holiday season is if you’re traveling to visit extended family, inviting friends over for dinner, or attending community events. These, along with shopping excursions, will cause you to use the door more often and may put more stress on the system’s critical components.
Here are some ways a garage door service professional can help.
Inspect and Maintain the Door
The garage door is composed of many interworking parts, many of which can develop issues over time, potentially causing the entire system to malfunction. By regularly inspecting and maintaining the door, including lubricating crucial moving parts, you can be assured it continues to operate safely and reliably. Hiring a garage door repair professional is the most efficient way to inspect and maintain your garage door and opener. They possess specialized expertise to identify potential issues before those issues can develop into substantial problems that can be costly to repair.
Heavy-Duty Torsion Springs Installation
Most garage door systems are installed with either extension or torsion springs, rated for 10,000 cycles. The frequency in which you will have to replace these depend on your specific usage. For example, if you open and close the door four times per day, regularly maintained garage door springs are expected to last about seven years. However, should you find yourself using the door with more frequency – as may be the case this holiday season, you may want to consider having a professional install heavy-duty torsion springs for enhanced longevity.
Install an Advanced Garage Door Opener
For many, the holiday season is a busy time, filled with seasonal activities and events. While the garage door already creates a convenient way to enter your home on demand, having a garage door service professional install an advanced garage door opener with your choice of smartphone control, battery backup, or integrated camera can further increase the ease of coming and going. Some models will even allow a specific online retailer to make deliveries inside the garage, so you can be assured that not only were your holiday packages safely delivered but that they will remain secure until you get home.
