Homeowners often cite being more organized as one of their New Year’s resolutions. Organization often entails renovating the home, both in the interior and exterior. If you’re going to improve the home, then you should also make New Year’s resolutions for garage door maintenance. This goes for both the functional and aesthetics aspects of the door.
If you use the garage daily without incident, then all is well. Nevertheless, you should perform a function and safety check. This includes testing the door’s reversal function, inspecting the photo eyes, and checking for balance. We covered all of these in our previous posts; just click on any of the links for an overview. Schedule a garage door repair if any of the points above are not operating normally.
Does the door look outdated or incompatible with the rest of the home? Consider installing a new garage door. This is also a good idea if the existing door is full of dings and dents. Stylish garage doors to look for in 2018 include barn-style, faux word, and all-glass garage doors.
If you’re fine with the existing door, then how about a fresh coat of paint? A bold color works wonders for making the door the focal piece.
You can unlock car doors nowadays via mobile app. Some garage doors have the same capability. Consider “technifying” your door to integrate it with your devices. Be careful, though, because such convenience also comes the risk of hacking from intruders.
