Secure Your Home for Hurricane Season

With hurricane season upon us, it’s time to make certain that our homes are secure. Making or buying storm shutters for windows, clearing debris around the yard, and making certain that the roof is properly strapped down are all areas that most homeowners think about. An often overlooked, yet most important area to secure is generally the largest opening in the house: the garage door. An improperly installed or older, weakened system can bring disaster to your entire home should a hurricane head your way.

The certified technicians at Precision Overhead Garage Door Service are thoroughly trained to know your system, and after performing a 25-point safety inspection, will offer you their best recommendations based on safety and cost effectiveness. Any repairs that need to be done can usually be completed that same day, and all of the work comes with a written guarantee. Their motto is, “We Fix Garage Doors Right.” They can make this statement, not only because of how excellently their technicians are trained to work with all major brands of garage doors and openers, but also because they use only the highest quality garage door parts, such as their green-powder coated springs. These springs are 100% corrosion resistant and tested for 25,000 to 50,000 cycles – much higher than the industry standard of 5 to 10,000 cycles.

Hurricanes aren’t the only threat this time of year. Garage doors are an easy entrance into your home for burglars. Having a new opener installed that has more security features will help your family and valuables stay safe. One of the opening systems that Precision offers is the Liftmaster Belt Drive Opener, which comes with a myriad of important safety features such as back-up battery, special MyQ technology that lets you monitor and control your garage door (and house lights) remotely, a timer-to-close feature that automatically closes your door after a pre-programmed number of minutes, and the Smart Garage Door Opener® that lets you electronically program security codes.

When it’s time to totally replace that old door, you can rely on Precision Overhead Garage Door Service of Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg, Lakeland and New Port Richey Metro Area to provide the type of service you would expect from a locally owned company, while enjoying all the security and array of cost-effective options that doing business with a national franchise can bring.
