Safety Tips For Residential Garage Doors

Safety Tips For Residential Garage Doors. It’s important to be aware of safety precautions before opening your garage door. The first step, is to make sure the area around the door and driveway are clear of objects, people and pets. This will help avoid injury from a car backing out, or someone stepping forward into the path of an open door. If you have children in your home then it’s also important that they know how to use their safety devices appropriately. It can be difficult for them to reach these so parents should take time to teach their kids how to open the door in case they need to. Garage doors can also pose safety risks if they are not installed correctly. So homeowners should always check with their professional installer about installation and information.

5 Safety Tips For Residential Garage Doors

Anyone who has a home with a garage can tell to how convenient it is. Once you’ve had a garage it’s hard to imagine having a home without one.While garage doors have come a long way over the years as far as functionality and safety, it’s still something homeowners should be mindful of. The last thing you want to do is have an injury especially if it was avoidable.

  1.  The safety of your family is the most important factor when choosing a garage door. Do not sacrifice this for looks or compatibility with other features in your home! You should never put yourself at risk by allowing something as small-scale as aesthetics affect major decisions about what could save lives someday. So make sure you get a garage door that provides the best security.
  2. Do not let the cost of a garage door installation deter you from getting one. Hiring professionals garage door installers will ensure that their work meets high standards for both safety and longevity. The minimal amount of money saved isn’t worth drastically increased risks
  3. Always close the door. It is never a good idea to leave the door open. Animals or uninvited guests find their way into your garage when you are out, it could also lead to becoming stuck and having someone trapped underneath
  4. Know your garage door features. As you will be opening your garage door for the first time, it’s important to know how they work. When installing a new one or just interested in knowing more about them, make sure that there are emergency features explained clearly before going through with installation. Emergency functions can help during emergencies so being aware of these vital details is really useful when safety matters most.
  5. Parents, keep the door opener out of reach from your children. If they have access to this device, their curiosity could lead them to a dangerous situation that you don’t want for them. It may seem harmless to leave it on a high shelf or in a closet just out of reach. These places are also where kids often play and explore so there is still a chance that they’ll find it.

We hope these safety tips have helped you to feel more confident about your residential garage door. However, if you need any additional information or advice, please contact us and we will be happy to help!

Mohamed responded to my request for repair of my garage immediately ! I was conned into purchasing brand new garage doors costing over $5000 and was told the garage could not be repaired!!! Soon as Mohamed saw the pictures he assured me that the garage door can be repaired and would cost me only $400. He was honest , eager to help , genuinely was concerned for my well-being and the fact that I was being conned !! There aren’t many people who are honest like this and I would highly recommend this company !!! Amazing repair job !
