The garage door is an important feature that needs as much attention as the rest of your home. Here are a few solutions to common garage door problems:
- Mechanical problems – just like any other mechanism, your garage door can experience mechanical problems over time. A troubleshooting checklist for a garage door that isn’t working properly includes checking the power source, the batteries in your remote, the track it runs along and the sensor, if it has one.
- Security problems – around half of all burglars gain access to a home through an open or insecure garage door, so the solution is to ensure the door is in good working order, to not leave your remote in your car and to close the garage door every single time.
- Aesthetic problems – your garage door plays a big part in curb appeal. A shabby, bland or neglected door can actually reduce the value of your home, so the solution is to install a quality, good-looking, long-lasting door (steel is always a good choice) that will enhance your home and improve its value.
