Being able to control your garage door just as easily from across the globe as from across the street would be pretty convenient, wouldn’t it? Well, you can do exactly that when you purchase a new garage door opener from LiftMaster equipped with MyQ® technology. It’s quite literally just as easy as swiping your finger across your device and you can open or close your garage door even if oceans stand between you and it.
With your Android, Apple, or Blackberry, you can control not just your garage door, but your lighting and your small appliances. How’s that for enhanced home security?
Contrary to what you might think, buying a new garage door isn’t as simple as selecting one and hiring someone to install it for you. There’s more that you have to consider.
Most importantly, you want to make sure that you’re working with a reputable garage door dealer. When you’re looking, be sure to see if the dealer backs up their work with a warranty. If they do, then it’s a good sign they can be trusted.
But, that’s not all you should be concerned with. Here’s everything else:
Believe it or not, you can easily and rather quickly organize your garage. If the only thing you use your garage for is storing your car and whatever mess you have accumulated over the years, you are wasting one of the largest open spaces in your home. Taking a little bit of time to organize the items in your garage allows you to maximize the use of that space, which makes sense, since you are already paying for it.
When you think about it, your garage door is the single largest moving component of your entire home. Despite this size, your garage door is used every day, at all hours and in all kinds of seasons. All these demands can have a negative effect on your garage door over time if you’re not careful. That’s why it’s essential that you spend time throughout the year performing basic maintenance on it. Here are the 10 best steps you can take to ensure your garage continues working for years to come.
It is not uncommon for those who own homes to run out of storage space. Often times we end up with more belongings than we can store in the space that is currently available. We would like to show you how you can create a garage in an existing basement room to increase your storage capacity. In this example, the homeowner took out his patio door and installed a 6’10” by 6’6” garage door, and included an electric garage door opener.
Your home’s curb appeal is very important. It is what makes people look at your home and either say “wow” or “yuck”. You definitely want the former. It means your home looks great, and it might even mean that it has a higher value than it would without curb appeal. Quite a few things go into the appeal of your home’s exterior, and they all need to work well together in order for you to present a truly beautiful property. Landscaping is a huge part of it, as is the condition and color of your home. A nice paint job or attractive siding can make a big difference. Additionally, you have to think about the color of the garage door.
