Tips for Garage door replacement
As Christmas Eve is coming and most of us maintain or renovate our homes but somehow we ignore the garage door. Now the time has come when you have a chance to replace your old garage door with the new one. Garage door replacement are very common as you can choose from numerous types of doors made up of various materials that were never available not too long ago.
In early days, people generally chose doors that were made of wood. Although this approach has changed after the introduction of synthetic elements for example steel and fiberglass as materials applied for building doors. These materials have added classiness in looks & style that wooden doors generally don’t have.
These days, garage doors are made to shield the garage's interior from weather factors like snow, rain, and the wind. These doors also comprise the most recent technology & standards when it comes to safety.
For example, in the U.S. since 1993, garage door opener must include a safety reversing system, such as photoelectric eyes mounted no higher than six inches above the ground, with a light beam spanning the door opening. The garage door opener is required to reverse the door to the open position if the beam is broken. Other examples of safety reversing systems, allowed within the guideline of U.S. federal law (UL 325), include electric safety edges, which reverse with approximately 15 pounds of downward pressure, and a garage door and opener system without photo eyes, tested together, which reverses upon approximately 15 pounds of pressure.
When you are considering garage door replacement, it is good to keep the above safety features in mind when you shop. Other points of consideration that are recommended are to use doors that have plastic windows that let light entering your garage. On the contrary, windows constructed of glass are not recommended since they involve some safety issues.
An effective garage door replacement is one that not only adds curb appeal to your home but also doesn’t compromise safety. Additionally, manufacturers of garage doors have utilized techniques for the door opener to transmit/receive varying codes every time the door opens. This will preclude thieves from stealing codes & open your garage when you are not at home or already sleeping soundly in your house.
Homeowners who prefer to do things by themselves or DIY may find it manageable to replace their garage doors. However, for some people, the doors might be too big & heavy to handle. Moving the doors can be a difficult chore particularly for those who don’t have any prior experience. It would be more beneficial to hire a professional for garage door replacement, as they will ensure that everything is installed properly.
In the end, even if you have the abilities and technical know-how in garage door replacement, it is always worthwhile to consider hiring a professional's help just for safety and to save time.
