Picking a Design:
There are lots of options when picking out a new garage door. Some of the latest garage door design trends include the use of natural materials such as wood and stone, minimalist designs, and the integration of technology for smart home functionality. Some popular door styles are carriage-house, contemporary and barn-style doors.
Why you shouldn’t DIY garage maintenance:
As for the dangers of doing a garage door tune-up yourself, some common hazards include:
Springs tension: Garage door springs are under high tension and can cause serious injury if handled improperly.
Cable snapping: Snapped cables can cause a sudden release of tension and cause injury.
Door panel damage: Improper handling of door panels can lead to bending or breaking, which can cause them to fall and cause injury.
Electric shock: If you are working with the electrical components of the garage door opener, there is a risk of electric shock.
Pinched fingers: Hands and fingers can easily be pinched in the door or opener mechanism.
It is recommended to leave garage door maintenance and repair to professional technicians to avoid potential injuries and ensure the job is done safely and correctly.
