Doors1One of the more overlooked aspects of home maintenance is door repair. If you do not keep the doors of your business in good shape, it can lead to a number of problems. Here is a look at the importance of maintaining and repairing doors in South Houston.

The Aesthetics of Doors

When people arrive at your business, one of the first things they will see is your entry door. If it is cracked or shows other signs of aging, you are presenting a bad impression to the world. With that in mind, it is crucial that you always keep your front door looking great. Regular door maintenance will ensure that the doors in your home look their best.

Protection Against the Elements

If you live in South Houston, you are already aware of the changes in the weather. When you own a business, you want to protect that your doors are safe from elements for both your employees and your customers. Even worn out weather stripping can allow cause problems and allow air from the outside to come inside your building. To keep your doors and building safe it is important to have them maintained regularly.

Vortex_TruckIf you own a business in South Houston, you know how important it is to keep your commercial doors well maintained. And you also know how important it is to rely on a company you trust to maintain or repair your doors either in advance or for emergency services. Not every commercial door repair service is identical to one another. Businesses do want to call on the most exceptional one. The following are a few traits to look for in a top service:

Maintain and Repair Every Type of Door

No matter what particular type of interior or exterior door is having problems, the repair service can fix it. Look for a company that can handle any type of door, including roll-up, overhead, entrance, automatic doorswarehouse, and fire doors.

Available Around The Clock

Problems with the door to a commercial establishment are very serious. If you have a break-in or a problem because of weather, waving to wait several days for a repair crew to arrive is just not acceptable. Find a company that offers emergency service 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. And it is also important to find a company that will take your call anytime around the clock.

Technicians are professional and highly skilled

Each employee should look professional and receive proper safety training in techniques associated with door repair, including welding, torch use, loading and ladder safety. In addition to demonstrating safety and knowledge, the technician should also be helpful and provide customers with excellent service.

South Houston is a pretty amazing place. There is so much to do and see for residents and visitors alike. One of the best places to start to learn about this part of the city is to discover some of the trivia about this great place. Here is a look four interesting facts about South Houston.

Home to One of the Most Epic Monuments to Recycling in the World

Beer_Can_HouseWhen John Milkovish started his Beer Can House in 1968, he had no idea what kind of attraction it would develop into. Milkovish, a retired upholsterer for Southern Pacific Railroad, has covered his home with siding made from aluminum beer cans. Not only does it look unique, but it greatly lowers his energy bills. “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” did a show about the Beer Can House, and they estimated that more than 50,000 beer cans have been used in its construction.

Vince Young Hails from South Houston

Vince Young was part of one of the most famous national championship games in college football history, when he scored the winning touchdown at the Rose Bowl on 4th down with just 19 seconds to go in the game. The quarterback went on to have a mixed career in the NFL, but he is undoubtedly one of the biggest local heroes to hail from South Houston.

Famous Alumni

Jim Parsons, who plays the nutty physicist Sheldon Cooper on hit smash TV show “The Big Bang Theory,” got his BA in Theatre at the university. The most famous alumni may be the acting brothers Randy and Dennis Quaid.

If you own a business, you know how important it is to take care of your facility. One thing you may not know, however, is how great a toll the weather of South Houston can take on entrance doors, warehouse doors, and other commercial and industrial door systems. It is important to have these doors inspected and repaired regularly by a professional especially with your doors being exposed daily by the elements.

Tropical Weather

Since South Houston is located just miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, tropical cyclones and hurricanes are an ever-present threat from late spring through early winter. These intense, large-scale systems can bring destructive winds and widespread flooding, both of which pose a threat to commercial and industrial doors. High winds can easily damage a large door or dislodge it from its tracks, making it difficult or impossible to use and presenting a potential security threat. In addition, flooding can also damage a door structurally or cause it to rapidly rust.

High Humidity

One of the most common problems with doors in South Houston is corrosion caused by the moist, humid climate. High humidity accelerates corrosion of doors and their frames, which can weaken a door structurally and even lead to mechanical failure if left unchecked. If your commercial door, loading dock, or security gate is showing signs of corrosion, it is best to have a technician service the door to address the rust. In addition, this will help verify that it is still structurally sound.

Severe Storms

Along with tropical systems, local severe storms are often associated with damage to doors as well. In addition to high winds, severe storms may also bring damaging hail and torrential rains. Large hail, often driven by the wind, is capable of causing dents or even significant deformation of a door, causing it to stop working properly and leaving it more vulnerable to corrosion and other damage.

And we are excited to now be part of the South Houston community. This expansion means that Vortex will have more trucks to keep our response the fastest in the industry!
