Going into 2019

Christie Overhead Door recommends that you schedule a yearly tune-up on your motorized garage door system. It’s important to balance and align the system as well as lubricate all moving parts. After all, it is the “largest moving part” attached to your house. Just like with your car or snow blower. A professional should provide a yearly service on garage doors and other machinery used on a regular or seasonal basis.

How do you use your garage?

  • Storage
  • Additional living space
