Preventive measures in case of a hail storm

Damages caused by a hail storm are usually expensive to repair. That is why it is important to avoid huge expenses by doing the following to protect a garage door from hail.

Use a Surge Protector

This protector guards the garage door opener against malfunctioning in case it comes in contact with water during a hail storm. At ADS Automatic Door Specialists we are well-equipped to install a surge protector that is customized for your specific garage door. We can provide a brand-new garage door opener to ensure that the garage door will not fail in the middle of a hail storm.

Avoiding Rust

Rust makes a garage door structurally weak and when a hail storm hits, the damages will become more expensive. We recommend painting the exterior of the garage door with latex-based paint that is external grade. This will prevent any likely development of rust. 

Garage door owners should periodically check the springs, wheels, and rails for any signs of rust. White vinegar will remove rust when it is applied to the garage door’s affected parts. 

Repairing garage doors in San Diego is a complicated process that can either be done by an expert or the owner. However, hail-related damages become expensive when not carried out properly. To learn more about maintaining an efficient garage door visit for more information.
