Valentine’s Day is a time to show your friends and family how much they mean to you by presenting them with a meaningful present or memorable experience. According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), more than half of consumers plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a significant way, spending an average of $175.41 on such as a delectable box of chocolate or an exquisite floral arrangement for themselves and others. The NRF estimates that Valentine’s Day spending will reach $23.9 billion this year.

However, people are not the only thing that should be shown some love, and Valentine’s Day isn’t the only time to do so, as February is an ideal time to focus on home improvement before the Spring Equinox on March 20.

Without exception, it’s also essential to provide attention to the one door that receives the most use, likely as the main entry into your home. Many rely on the garage door to function at the press of a button or, if the door is equipped with a smart opener, with the flick of a smartphone app a minimum of four times each day. That is a lot of wear of tear, which over time, can cause the door to malfunction necessitating you to contact a local garage door service professional.

Here are some ways a local garage door professional can help you show your garage door some love this February. Schedule an appointment for any of the following or another service today at (480) 460-1199.

Routine Maintenance

February offers optimal temperatures and exciting holidays/events, making it an ideal time to schedule an appointment to have a professional maintain your garage door system, including the opener. Just like with the vehicle it shelters, the door is composed of many parts and components that work together to open and close the door on demand, each time you’re coming and going. A professional will check these parts for abnormal wear, listen for unusual sounds, lubricate moving parts, test critical safety features, and tighten all hardware.

Same Day & Emergency Repair

A garage door service professional possesses specialized skills and equipment to troubleshoot and repair common issues such as broken garage door springs, noisy garage door rollers, a door that won’t open, and many more often the same day you call. For example, they can replace broken garage door springs with your choice of standard or heavy-duty, high cycle springs, which will afford you double the number of cycles for increased peace of mind. They can also help quiet a noisy garage door by providing a premium set of ball-bearing nylon rollers for $99 installed.

New Garage Door Sales & Installation

When it’s time to improve the curb appeal of your home with a new garage door – netting you a nearly 94% return on investment at resale – you can choose from a wide range of materials and styles using Apex Garage Door & Repair’s online door designer.
