Garage door maintenance also takes into account your property’s surroundings. This has to do with your security requirements. On a domestic property, the garage door is often closest to the street, so you might want to relook at just how secure that garage door is. One new option before you is to go in for an automated opening and closing system, ideally through remote control. This replaces the rusting padlocks which can still be easily cut away by unwelcome intruders.
And that’s another thing. This assumes that the rest of your home has already been burglar proofed. Do make sure that the armed response alarm system you have in place is linked to the garage door as well. Your garage door technician can consult you on this, if necessary.
Finally, seeing as the garage door is just so close to the street, why not make it look as attractive as possible.
