You’ve probably seen pictures of pedestrian doors on garages in the past. They look really great and seem very convenient, so people have become fond of posting galleries of them all over the Internet.
The rationalization behind pedestrian doors seems to be, “Instead of opening that big door to get in the garage, I could just walk through a much smaller one.”
Let's be honest; a spring break is made to be fun and exciting. However, not all of them hit the mark. We're referring to literal spring breaks here when your garage springs snap and make a loud noise that passes through the entire home.
The internet will provide you with a list of local cleaning companies who specialize in this type of work, but why not take a crack at it yourself? Below are helpful suggestions on how to tackle the job.
If you are like most people, you probably assume that most garage doors are going to be the same. They will work the same way, and they will have a row of windows in the same place that you have seen them countless times before.
Avoid spring break? Never! But that is precisely what most homeowners say they’d like to do when it is a spring that breaks on their garage door. Witty word play aside, the sound made by a snapping lifting spring is not joke. In fact, the volume and intensity of it will reverberate throughout the house and send everyone running towards the garage to find out if a small bomb exploded.
A residential burglary happens every minute and a half in Canada and evert 18 seconds in the United States. Roughly 60 to 80 percent of them occur in broad daylight.
One of the most common points of egress into a home is the garage, and burglars take advantage of this. Not only are connecting doors often unlocked but garages themselves are full of valuable items ranging from power tools and bicycles to motorcycles and more. Even more disturbing, though, is the fact that many burglars use the garage to break in because we are careless when away from home.
It doesn’t matter if you are doing home renovations and repairs, or building a new home, you can always find ways to tackle some DIY projects. Yet, most household improvements or jobs require the right tools, skills and level of experience. And nowhere is that truer than the garage door system. In fact, most experts say that it is an area suited to professionals alone.
