Season’s greetings from our team at Overhead Doors! We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. We genuinely appreciate our valued customers for trusting us with one of the most important components of their home – their garage doors, windows, and exterior doors.
As a local company that supports Alberta’s economy, we know how important it is now more than ever to serve our local communities. We look forward to providing you with quality products and services in 2022 and onward.
With the holiday season comes outdoor decorations. Garage doors offer an enticing opportunity to beautify our home. However, there are some precautions to take before you add any decor on or around your garage door.
Tips for garage door safety when decorating
Of course, safety is the priority when placing any lights, garlands, or other trinkets around your garage. Before you do, we urge you to follow these tips:
1. Keep your garage door free of decoration – It’s tempting to add accessories right onto a garage door because of its size. However, we recommend refraining from doing so because the decor might get caught as the door lifts. This impacts its functionality and can do damage to garage door components.
2. Add garland and lights around the frame – Instead of decorating the garage door itself, a more practical way to make your garage a little more festive is to add decor around the frame. When adding garland or lights, be sure to secure them tightly so there’s no chance of them becoming loose and getting caught when the door opens.
Give the gift of garage door installation and repairs
It’s a unique and practical gift that can bring many benefits for a loved one, including safety and convenience. And when it comes time for a routine maintenance check or a brand new installation, your friend or family member will greatly appreciate the thoughtful gift.
