How Can You Keep Your Family Safe Around Your Automatic Garage Door?

The garage door could pose a threat to the safety of your loved ones, but there is no need to worry if you perform monthly maintenance, keep fingers away from moving parts, and don’t let kids play with the garage door opener. These five tips can help you keep your family safe around your automatic garage door.

  1. Monthly Maintenance
  2. Keep the Garage Door Opener Away from Kids
  3. Open the Door Prior to Starting the Car
  4. Keep Your Fingers Away from Garage Door Parts
  5. Keep It Locked

1) Monthly Maintenance

One of the top (and easiest) ways to keep your loved ones safe when dealing with an automatic garage door is to perform monthly check-ups on your garage. You can easily do this yourself by opening and closing the door while inspecting gears, cables, and garage door springs to make sure nothing has broken, and nothing is blocking the track.

2) Keep the Garage Door Opener Away from Kids

The garage door opener is not a toy and it is important to keep it away from your children. Be sure to discuss with them the dangers of a garage door and how it can cause serious injury if they play with the garage door and opener.

3) Open the Door Prior to Starting the Car

Never start your vehicle while the garage door is closed. Vehicles emit exhaust when running and sitting in a closed garage with the car running can be dangerous and even deadly.

4) Keep Your Fingers Away from Garage Door Parts

When opening and closing your garage door, make sure no one’s fingers are anywhere near the door and the moving parts. They could get stuck between the door sections, causing injury and pain.

ProTip: To keep kids safe around your automatic garage door, teach them to never touch or be too close to the door while it is opening or closing.

5) Keep It Locked

Unfortunately, there has been a rise in home invasions over the past few years and if you keep your garage door unlocked, it can be an easy way for intruders to make their way into your home. Always keep your garage door closed and locked to help keep the whole house and family safe.

Staying Safe Around Automatic Garage Doors

Garages are great for many reasons—storage, home projects, play—but, they can also pose safety and security challenges. By following the above safety tips you can help ensure that everyone stays safe around your automatic garage door.

What Should You Take Into Consideration With Custom Designs for Garage Doors?

If you’ve decided to make your home gorgeous by adding a custom garage door you need to take into consideration your door size, what type of style, materials, and whether you want windows. Here is more information about what to think about before you create your custom garage door:

  1. Door Size
  2. Door Style
  3. Windows
  4. Panel Details
  5. Materials

1) Door Size

Knowing the size of your garage door is an important first step in buying a custom garage door. Custom doors are made to order, so be sure to tell them whether you have a single or double garage door. Be sure to measure the width and height so you can have the perfect fit.

2) Door Style

There are so many garage door styles to choose from these days! Go with the popular carriage style door, or a swing, tri-fold, or contemporary style door. It’s a good idea to take into consideration the style of your home’s architecture and choose a door that compliments your homes existing architectural style.

3) Windows

Once you decide on a style, you can decide whether you want to add windows to your custom garage door. You can also decide how many windows you want, if any. Choose from having them run all the way across, or only a few to accent your door.  There are also different glass options available, too, such as frosted glass, clear glass, and insulated glass.

4) Panel Details

Another thing to take into account is how many panels you have on your garage door. There are flat panels, raised panels, raised and recessed panels, and others to choose from.

ProTip: The number of panels will depend on your garage door style, so make sure to talk to your garage door professional about your options.

5) Materials

Standard garage doors are typically made from aluminum, but there are numerous other options to select when you have a custom garage door made for your home. Some options are custom wood, metal, higher quality aluminum, and other custom materials.

Most people don’t think about their garage door when it comes to “updating” their home. But in reality, the garage door is usually the first thing a person see’s when coming to your home or even driving by. It is approximately 112 square feet of the home. Not to mention basically a moving wall. It takes maintenance and most people fail to do this until it is to late and then you have a garage door that is falling out of the opening, your springs break, or it is simply making a lot of noise. Then it cost more to repair at that time. A garage door is like a car, it needs a little TLC every now and then in order to function and a lot of us use it as our front door now, why not take care of the garage door and make it last a long time without pricey repairs. If you want to add curb appeal we can help with that also. There are accessories for your garage door !
