What does your house need?
Before you choose new garage doors, you must consider whether you are located in a hurricane prone area, the peculiarities of the local climate, the crime rates of your neighborhood and home town, and personal priorities. These are the main criteria for a successful garage door replacement.
How well you know wood?
Wood is an excellent material, but it’s expensive because it’s natural. Garage door maintenance will also cost you more because wood requires frequent services and is not suitable for areas with high humidity levels. Though, it will certainly make your home look nicer and increase its value.
Do garage door inspection often
Did you know that garage door inspection won’t take you more than a half an hour?
You must tighten up some screws and lubricate the garage door springs making a difference to your safety and security. Though, it is wise to repeat the procedure often to prevent problems.
Don’t you love glass?
Glass garage doors are so lovable that some people install them in their bedroom. It is the first time they are introduced within the house and need frequent services.
Compare the insulation options when choosing a new garage door
Polyurethane has a higher R-value compared to polystyrene and is more resistant to damage. Polystyrene, on the other hand, is lighter. Besides, with it, you can have a lighter door with a two-layer structure – the panel and the layer of insulation. Weigh the pros and cons of each option based on your individual needs to make a decision.
Don’t try to open the garage door when a spring is broken
If you use the opener, this can lead to broken hardware parts and motor damage and malfunction. If you try lifting the door, the cables can get twisted around the rollers because they are loose. In either case, the problem will become worse and more difficult and time-consuming to solve. Avoid this by pulling the emergency handle and staying put until help arrives.
