June is Garage Door Safety Month

June has been designated Garage Door Safety Month by the International Door Association (IDA) and the Door and Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA), so as we spend more time outside, it is always a good idea to keep your garage door running smoothly and safely. Keep in mind that the garage door is often the largest moving object and most-used entry point of the home, which is why the safety of this door is particularly important!

Make sure the garage door opener control button (remote) is out of the reach of children and do not let them play with remote controls. Never place fingers between door sections. Consider pinch-resistant door panels to help prevent accidents.

Visually inspect your garage door, paying particular attention to the springs, cables, pulleys and rollers for signs of wear and tear. Do not attempt to remove, adjust or repair these parts or anything attached to them. These parts are under high tension and should only be fixed by a trained garage door professional. Manually test your door using the door’s interior and exterior handles. (If you have an electric garage door opener, be sure to use the release mechanism first.) A properly maintained and safe garage door will lift smoothly with little to no resistance and will stay open 3 to 4 feet above the garage floor. If this does not occur, then your door may be out of balance and may be unsafe.

Test the reversing mechanism of your opener by placing a 2-inch by 4-inch board in the door’s path. If the door does not reverse after contacting the object, call a qualified garage door professional for repair. If the opener has not been replaced since 1993, replace the garage door opener with a new one that has safety beams and auto-reverse as a standard feature.

These are just some basic suggestions for keeping your family and friends safe during the summer months to come!!

If you find any signs of wear and tear and your door is just not operating smoothly, it is a great idea to have a trained garage door repair technician come out to fix any problems and to lube and adjust your door for optimal operation and ultimately everyone’s safety.

We at Overhead Door of Norwich and Tolland County and Windham County want to keep your garage door running smoothly and keep you safe. Call us for competitive pricing on repairs and replacements. Even if your garage door system is running well, keep it that way by taking advantage of a yearly checkup special pricing at $55 for the first door and $40 for each additional door. Just mention the “Service Special” when you call us!

SPRING HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!

June blog floweres

Hello Everyone!  It’s taken awhile but the sun is starting to peek out a few more days at a time now.  We’ve all heard of April showers and this year did not disappoint.   With sunny, warmer days, we tend to go outside and tidy up.  We plant flowers, pick up debris and maybe add some mulch to spruce things up.

You glance about your property.  It looks very nice, but wait!  The garage door looks terrible.  Paint is peeling, the wood is separating and it even looks a little crooked. Now is the time to spruce up your home by replacing your biggest door.  A new study snows that your ROI (Return on Investment) is over 100%!  I like those odds. Even if you are not selling your home now, a new garage door can add great curb appeal.  Who doesn’t want to be envied by your neighbors.  Let our representatives show you how with a free in-home estimate.  Call 1-800-462-4003 or email us at slepage@ohdct.com.  Better yet, come join us Saturday, May 12th, at 9am to 2pm for our OPEN HOUSE!  Feel the difference.  I look forward to having you there!

HURRICANE BLOG

Harvey….Irma….Jose.  These names of recent hurricanes no doubt are etched into your mind.  Connecticut fortunately does not normally lie in the crosshairs of these types of storms.  Occasionally we do get storms of magnitude like the hurricane of 1938 and Superstorm Sandy; remember those names?  High winds and storm surge are the two biggest effects of these weather conditions.  How can you protect yourself?  

Overhead Door Company of Eastern Connecticut can provide you with wind rated doors, impact glass and vents if needed.  Doors can be wind rated to a variety of mph.  Impact glass meets Florida’s Dade County requirements for flying debris and vents can help remove water when water levels recede.  Connecticut State law requires the home owner to have new doors to be wind rated and impact glass within one mile from the shore. 

Let us show you with our FREE ESTIMATE how we can help protect you, your family and your property.  When the next “big one” comes, be ready.  Call Overhead Door of Easter Connecticut today!

You may contact us at any of these locations!
