It’s funny how you can look at the same thing every day and not notice signs of wear and tear. Signs of decay that have happened so slowly over time, that doesn’t even register in your mind, until you have a problem. The garage door can be like that. You see it at least twice a day when you leave home and return. You use it at least twice a day to get your car in or out of the garage but you don’t really notice it. Tiny hitch as the door goes up that gets greater over time. The soft squeal that becomes louder as time passes. All signs that your door is getting older as we all are and might need some repair or even to be replaced.
