Easy Steps to Take to Get Your Driveway Gate Ready For Winter

As the weather turns cooler, you should start thinking about what you need to do to get your home or business gate ready. Every gate needs a little preparation before the winter comes in order to keep it running smoothly. This is true no matter what kind of weather comes.

Fall is the perfect time to schedule a “tune-up” for your garage door or security gate. Think about it, your gate operates several times a day (especially for businesses), and we depend on them to work properly each time. Your gate is a machine, and eventually all machines break down over time, so it is important to have preventative maintenance to keep breakdowns from happening too soon. The experts at OC Garage Door & Gates are trained to perform maintenance checks and look for any lurking problems with the system. Get your gate or garage door checked out before the cooler weather hits- it will save you time, money and give you peace of mind.

Although, we don’t see freezing temperatures in sunny California, it is still a good idea to keep your gate locked in the “open” position. Many times security gate owners do not do this and when bad weather hits, their gate ends up frozen in the closed position! Cars can also slide on ice and run right into the gate, damaging it. Luckily, in Los Angeles, we don’t have to worry about snow and ice, but it is still a good idea to keep the gate in the locked “open” position.

If you are thinking about hanging Christmas lights from your security gate, think about this beforehand. A security gate operates by retracting or lifting, so if a wreath or other decoration are not properly placed, they can get caught in the moving parts and cause damage to your machine and to your decorations. Make sure you have enough clearance before putting on a wreath or other holiday decorations.

Obviously, what you need to do to prepare for winter differs from area to area, but we do know that it is beneficial and helpful to have a “tune-up” before the cooler weather hits, no matter where you live. So, this fall season, make sure to plan ahead for those cooler winter months.

If your garage door or driveway gate is damaged or malfunctioning, call our experts today to schedule a repair or maintenance visit.
