When remodeling your garage, you might consider replacing your garage door. However, did you know that not all garage doors are the same size? In fact, there is not set standard for garage doors. So, purchasing a new garage door might not be as easy as going down to the local hardware store and picking a new one out.
It’s been a long day. You pull up in front of your garage, press the open button on the remote, and you wait for the door to open. And then you wait some more. You press the button again, but still nothing happens. You realize that there’s something wrong, but it can’t be the remote, as you just changed the batteries. You realize with a sinking heart that you’re going to have to reprogram your LiftMaster/Chamberlain garage door opener.
It doesn’t matter where you happen to live. Power outages happen from time to time. It might be due to a storm, someone hitting a power line, heavy snow, or any other number of reasons. Regardless of what caused the problem, we all know that power outages aren’t typically a good time. If you are stuck inside, you can try to make the best of things, but sometimes you need to get out. However, if you have an electric garage door opener, you might be wondering how to do that. After all, doesn’t the opener need power to run?
They say you should dress for success. What if the same goes for more than just your clothes? Maybe it’s time to take that same idea and apply it to your garage door. Here’s a little thought experiment.
Close your eyes and imagine you have just walked outside and are standing on the curb. Now turn and face your house. What is the first thing you see? It’s probably your garage door. After all, a garage door takes up a good portion of your house’s exterior, especially if it fits 2 cars.
Have you given up the basement space in your home? Maybe you once had a game room where a pool table or other activities were enjoyed, but those days are over and it is overrun with teens watching TV or using it as a bedroom? That's okay, for a minimal investment, your garage can be reorganized and converted not a bigger, better game room.
The front of your business is the first thing that people see when they pull up or drive by. How your store front looks is giving potential customers their first impression of your business, in many cases. So, you need to think about what message your commercial garage door is sending to the people who lay eyes on it. You want it to be making a statement about your business that goes along with what your company vision is.
All of the spaces in your home need a little TLC from time to time, and your garage is no exception. You wouldn’t allow your HVAC system to fall into disrepair, and if your roof was showing signs of wear, you’d fix it. Your garage door needs the same amount of respect.
