Garage Door Maintenance After Painting

by | Dec 28, 2020

When it comes to giving your garage door a new look it is easy to think painting it would be the best option. Sometimes painting your garage door is the best option and will give you the look you may want for your home. There are always steps to take when changing anything that runs on an automatic system like a garage door. Painting may seem like a simple step that you do not have to consider anything but you really do. Painting a garage door adds a new layer to the door which in turn adds weight. The motor you use to open and close the door has to have the weight distributed evenly as well as be capable of holding the new weight you are adding due to the paint.

At Garage Service Co. of Denver, CO we have seen a few motor break downs after clients have painted their garage doors. As you know it does not always take one coat of paint to cover up the old look it can take up to 2 – 3 coats to get the job done. The last thing you want it to have a freshly painted garage door that does not work. Rely on us to help make sure your garage door motor can handle the weight you have added to the door. You would not want to try and use the door and it not even open or maybe get half way and fall back to the ground. Avoid this step in the process and any safety hazards that may arise from your fresh paint job. Call us now to discuss what painting a garage door can do to the motor you use to open and close your garage.
