SEPTEMBER SPECIAL!

We have been sadly reminded that hurricane season is upon us. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people who are suffering and will continue to suffer for some time to come, from the wrath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

 

We carry an assortment of American Made Flags. See our website www.ohdct.com to view our product. If you do not see the flag you are looking for, call us and we can surely find it for you. We offer discounts for Military Vets and Seniors.

This flag is created from the names of those who perished in the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

 

 

 

Changing of the Seasons is the one thing I love the most about New England. With this, however, comes a lot of preparation for the changes. Going into the winter months, we may want to give our garage doors a “check up”, so to speak. We offer a Service Special that provides a professional inspection and maintenance of your doors and openers, and our highly trained technicians will make recommendations to you. Our Service Special offers a 15% off any materials that may be required upon the inspection. Just call us and ask for the “Service Special”.

 

People are becoming increasingly more aware of the sun and the damage it causes. I find myself and my friends and family seeking protection from the sun and heat during those hot summer months, when we prefer to lounge and entertain outside, but do not want to go back indoors (we are indoors all winter!)

Overhead Door Company of Tolland County and Awnings of Eastern Connecticut now offer a vast range of commercial and residential awning styles and accessories.

We offer stationary as well as motorized, remote controlled retractable awnings.   Visit our website at www.awningsofect.com to see our terrific selection of awning types, and over 150 fabric designs and colors.

If you are thinking ahead to next summer, you may want to consider this sooner than later, before the heat is upon us once again. We are currently running this Special! With the purchase of a retractable awning, we will give you the motor at no cost. This is quite a DEAL!! Get this installed now and you will be ready for next spring!!

June – Garage Door Safety Month!

sunflower3

Summer is here, school is out and there will be a lot more activity in your yard and around your home.  Garage Door safety is crucial for this time of year when children are running in and out of the house! 

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!

If you may be considering replacing your garage door system, we are running a terrific special now for $2095.00.  This includes two single steel 9×7 garage doors that are well insulated, as well as two garage door openers including an outdoor keypad!  We have experienced and trained technicians to do the installation and remove and dispose of your old!

Just call us today and mention the $2095 2x2 Special!

AWNINGS and FLAGS!

June blog floweres

We are all starting to think forward to summer.  I was always a sun worshipper, myself, but am learning that the sun can also be  extremely dangerous to our health.  Not only are sunrays the leading cause of skin cancer, but the older I get the less of the heat I can take.

Many people are taking to the purchase of patio awnings.  They allow for the option of shade when the sun comes around to the patio.  We sell retractable patio awnings ( as well as many other types of awnings, commercial and residential ) which are motorized with a remote control, making this a very quick and easy task, to add comfort for you and your friends and family.

We are currently running our Show Special $2695.00  for a Motorized Remote Controlled Awning – measurements from 12 ft. to 14 ft wide by 10 ft!  This price includes shipping and installation for Standard wall mount applications.  (Other specialty brackets & accessories not included)

Call and ask about our Awning Special today!!  1-800-462-4003. This Special expires April 18th.

FEBRUARY 2017 – HOME SHOWS COMING UP!

When I began to write this blog, it  was 50 degrees in Northeastern CT and it was feeling like springtime was almost here.  I suppose I got a little ahead of myself, because I shoveled 18 inches of snow yesterday!  So, yes, blame me!!

 

Springtime is my favorite time of year.  It always amazes me to watch nature come alive!! I come alive, too!  For some reason, I gain more energy and more incentive to do things when the daylight gets longer and the temperatures get warmer.  Of course, with that come more projects around the house and yard.  For those that are homeowners, these Shows can be a lot of fun and give us some creative ideas.  We are proud to be at attendance for both of these CT Home Shows coming up the first weekend in March.  Please, come and visit us, any and all current and future customers!!

We are proud Title Sponsors of the Eastern Connecticut Home Show and would love to have you all come visit us and our amazing employees! The dates are March 4th and 5th, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.  Location:  Mystic Marriott, 625 North Road (Rte. 117), Groton, CT.

Come and visit us at the Connecticut  Home Show in Hartford,  coming up the first weekend of March.  Meet Dave, our Tolland County Sales Manager, and his Tolland Team.  He can answer any question you have, as he installed for us for over 20 years and is now our Lead Sales Manager for Tolland County.
