Fall Decorating Tips

It's finally fall! Cooler weather, pumpkins, and crunchy leaves. It's one of the most colorful seasons of the year and it's a perfect time to get festive. We're sharing our favorite fall decorating tips, along with a few suggestions on how to adorn your garage door, too!

OHD's Guide to Flawless Fall Decorating

Tip #1 - Go Natural

Using decorative gourds, hay, twigs, corn, and leaves to deck out your home for autumn is a great idea! Not only are you making your home look festive, you're utilizing biodegradable materials - waste not, want not. If you buy pumpkins, consider not cutting them to make Halloween jack-o'-lanterns - you can reuse them through the end of November for Thanksgiving. 

Tip #2 - Deck Out Your Doors

Using garlands or wreaths around or on your door is a cheery welcome for autumn visitors. You can even make your own leafy garland following these instructions from HGTV. One of the best things about garland is that you can also use it to decorate around your garage door. However, for your safety, carefully string it so that it's away from moving parts and vehicles.

You didn't think we were going to forget Halloween, did you? If you've opted to use the first two ideas, simply add to what you've already got - purchase fake spider webs, wicked witches, or ghastly ghoul decorations to add to your haystack. If you'd prefer to skip the scary decor, opt for scarecrows and fake birds.

Tip #4 - Go a Little Color Crazy

Fall is known for its fantastically rich colors. For Halloween, paint pumpkins white, black, purple, orange, and lime green for a perfectly haunted look. If you plan to use them through Thanksgiving, choose white and orange, which pair well with the other seasonal colors. Pumpkins also make a great addition to the sides of your garage door to add an even more festive look to your home. Consider swapping out outdoor furniture seating for rich purple, deep red, copper, and chocolate brown tones.

We hope our ideas have sparked your creative juices this fall! Autumn is an opportune time to consider changing our your garage door, just in time for cooler temperatures. It's also a great way to make a festive statement before fall decorating begins! Find out more about how our helpful team can help you change the look of your home this season.

How to Spot a Garage Door Scam

Posted by Bob weidner on Thu, Sep 14, 2017 @ 09:17 AM

how-to-spot-a-garage-door-scam.png

Unfortunately, there are many people who happily take advantage of those in need. Garage door service is no different. No one wants to be conned. That's why the professionals at Overhead Door are sharing ways to spot a garage door scam. 

They Offer Insanely Cheap Fees

Watch out for companies advertising low or no service call fees. Most reputable companies charge approximately $100 for a service call - this fee covers the cost of using a trained technician who has the skills to properly diagnose and correct garage door issues. Cheap companies often lure in customers with inexpensive initial rates, then price gouge them later.

They Have a Website, but No Supporting Facts

Just because you find a company online doesn't mean that it's a legitimate company. It's important to research reviews, ask your sphere of friends and family, and do what you can to verify the company's claims. Just because someone has a website doesn't mean they're qualified to work on your garage door.

They Push to Begin Work Quickly

While most service companies want to get your garage door up and running quickly, use caution with companies who won't provide a total written estimate. Though some jobs can become more involved once a technician begins the work, scammers will quickly tear your door apart, then demand exorbitant fees to reassemble it (assuming they can put it back together).

They Want Free Reign

Unless you have an excellent security system or you're working with a company you can trust, be cautious of who you allow into your home. Before the technician arrives, put away valuables. Some would-be thieves will use the guise of a service call to case your home. Additionally, don't leave your home unattended while the technician completes his or her work.

Are you looking for a name you can trust? Overhead Door has decades of experience - our customers rely on us to protect their homes and offer reasonable service rates. To schedule an appointment with our professionals, contact us today!

Garage Door Maintenance Tips for Fall

Posted by Bob weidner on Thu, Sep 07, 2017 @ 09:51 AM

OHDPB_Fall Maintenance.png

It’s almost autumn! Cooler weather brings relief to West Texas after a long hot summer. However, it’s critical that you conduct these quick garage door maintenance tips for fall - they can help you avoid serious issues that could put a damper on your autumn weekends.

Grease Review 

Hot summer air dries out more than just the ground. If you notice your garage door isn’t opening and closing as smoothly as you would like, consider apply lubricant to the moving parts. Though grease can last a long time, it’s always good to run a quick check to confirm. Additionally, make sure there’s no lubricant where there shouldn’t be. Fall cleanings can be just as cathartic as spring cleanings!

Weatherstripping Replacement

Over time, the rubber or plastic weatherstripping along the bottom of your garage can rot away. Fall is the perfect time of year to replace it, because who wants water, dust, or autumn leaves in their garage? Additionally, it helps to regulate the temperature in your garage. 

Balance Inspection

Place a standard contractor’s level on your door when it is in the “up” position. If the bubble doesn’t balance, it means that your door is off-kilter. When your garage door is unbalanced, you increase the risk of it falling off the track. It also causes more wear and tear on your door than is necessary.

Seasonal Maintenance Check

Though you can conduct a significant amount of this maintenance yourself, have a professional conduct a seasonal check before cooler months begin. Weather can alter your door’s performance, especially if something is already a little off. Contact the professionals at Overhead Door to set up your appointment. We don’t just offer new door sales and emergency repairs – our preventative services can help save you time and headache.
