We here in Southeast Louisiana are sadly no strangers to flooding and heavy rains.

We've all witnessed the devastation that water can have on our neighborhoods, homes and businesses. But it doesn't take a hurricane or massive rainstorm to cause damage on your residential or commercial garage door. Prolonged exposure to water is enough to wreak havoc on the integrity of your door.

Often times, the water damage is secluded to the bottom portion of the door, which is typically some type of overhang designed to allow the door to clear the driveway/concrete without getting stuck. But it's not uncommon to see water damage arise in the door jambs or headers, either.

Yet even if the damage is isolated to a specific area of the door, replacing the entire door is typically your best option, but that's not always the case.

A garage door specialist can help you determine the extent of your water damage and your best course of action moving forward. In helping you decide your next steps, your garage door specialist will factor in:

  • The immediate costs of replacement or repair
  • The long term impact of either option (often times a repair will require more work down the line)

At American Garage Door of Louisiana, our primary concern is helping our customers regain the security and integrity of their doors quickly and effectively, which is why we offer rot and termite repair to all types of garage doors found throughout St. Tammany and Tangipahoa parishes.

You'd be surprised at the number of odd things people have wanted to store in their garage. From alligators to a shrine of the band ZZ Top, we've seen it all in our years as the leading garage door dealer in Mandeville, Covington, Slidell and New Orleans.

But one item that is not so strange to store in your garage is your boat.

In fact, if the only other option you have is to leave your boat out on the water all year round, then we definitely encourage you to store your boat in your garage.

That's because an extended period of in-water storage will not only cause significant damage during even New Orleans' winters, but you're also opening yourself up to a greater likelihood of theft and vandalism.

Bathrooms and kitchens get all the attention when homeowners throughout New Orleans, Slidell, and Mandeville look to take on a new renovation project.

But giving your garage a makeover (both inside and out) could be exactly what you need to fall back in love with your home.

When you open up your garage, what's the first thing to come to your mind? Are you welcomed with clutter, spider webs, and a drab and boring space?

It doesn't have to be that way.
