Protection #1: Weather Conditions

One of the biggest hazards to your transportation endeavors at your company is inclement weather. High winds, heavy rain, and storms can cause a significant amount of damage to your commercial building. Installing commercial-grade doors that can help your building withstand such conditions is definitely a positive investment. Not only does it protect equipment and materials inside, it can also protect employees from the dangers going on with the weather. 

Protection #2: Fire

Fire-rated overhead doors are designed to close automatically when a specifc alarm is triggered. They are meant to prevent the spread of flames, smoke, and toxic fumes. There are specific fire ratings for different doors, designed to withstand fires for anywhere from 20 minutes to 3 hours. If one of your company's industrial risks is fire, contact one of our representatives today. We can help you to determine which fire-rated door is the best fit for your business.

Protection #3: Theft

Whether you've got an industrial business or a retail company, it's important to protect your investment. Choosing an overhead door that keeps would-be thieves out of your building is an important safety precaution. Whether you need steel doors, counter doors, or a security grill, Overhead Door is available to help you determine your options.

Home Facelift Projects

Is your home looking and feeling a little blah lately? It doesn't have to! Try these great home facelift projects to give your home a boost.

Lawn Projects

One of the biggest curb appeals indicators is how well a home's yard work is done. Sometimes simply cutting the lawn more frequently can make a huge different. Try adding pops of color with pretty flowers. If you don't want to worry about the annual time and expense of planting flowers, consider adding perennial native plants and flowers. An additional benefit of this? Most plants native to our area are drought-resistant.

Roof Projects

Make sure that leaves, debris, and dust are kept off of your roof and gutters. One of the biggest reasons for this is that it enhances the durability of your roof and can add years to its life. Leaving debris on your roof not only decreases the longevity of your roof, it also provides an instant facelift for your home. 

You should also clean out your gutters regularly. Leaves and dust can form a "mud" in gutters, which reduces their effectiveness. It also increases the likelihood of leaks and damage to your home from water overflow.

Paint Projects

If you need a complete overhaul, be sure to consider complementary colors to make your home stand out.

Garage Door Projects

Surprisingly enough, a new garage door can completely change your home's exterior. Tired, worn-out old garage doors may be dented, scratched, or faded. Additionally, new garage doors are usually quieter and more energy efficient.

Garage Maintenance

Posted by Bob weidner on Fri, Apr 14, 2017 @ 05:26 PM

OHDPB.jpgMany people think that after installing a new garage door, there's nothing left to do. Like any investment, certain precautions can be taken to increase the lifespan of your doors. Our garage maintenance tips are easy to add to your home maintenance routine.


We live in an area with unusual weather patterns. Some days it's windy, some days it's rainy, most of the time it's dusty. It can fluctuate from one day to another. Dust and grim can accumulate on your garage doors, as well as the components. At least once annually, it's important to schedule a heavy duty cleaning.

  • Use a broom to remove any cobwebs or other debris.
  • Find a cleaner that can be used with the material of your garage door. It's not recommended to use the same kind of cleaner on wood doors as you would aluminum doors.
  • Be sure to use a water hose to clean off any chemical cleaner and excess dirt.
  • Sometimes, wiping down the door with a soft, clean cloth will work instead of using water or chemicals.
  • Wipe down keypads, the garage door "eyes," and the garage motor housing.


Take a look at all the components of your garage door, including springs, cables, brackets, and screws. It's important to make sure that all of the parts are in good working order. Look for rust, breakage, wear, and tears. If any of these pieces appear damaged, be sure to contact Overhead Door for a maintenance appointment.

Additionally, if you've noticed that the door is having problems opening or closing or that one portion is not closing completely, you may need to have your door balanced.


Another part of making sure your garage door is properly maintained is to lubricate the machinery. Like a little bit of elbow grease can scour a dirty pan, a little bit of actual grease can help make your garage door run better. Lubricating springs, chains, and other parts helps to:

  • make your garage door quieter and run more smoothly;
  • eliminate unnecessary wear and tear on your garage;
  • increase the life of your garage door and the components.

What To Do If You Need Help

That's simple! You just contact us! We're available to help with all of your garage door maintenance needs and repairs. Part of our job is to make sure that your garage door is running at its best.
