1 Safety — Everyone stores stuff in their garage, like holiday decorations, tools, and even keepsakes. Not to mention, most people park in their garage! If your garage door is stuck open, everything in there is open to being stolen or damaged. If people can get into your garage, then there’s a good chance they can get into your house. On the flip side, if you’re unable to open the garage after you have your car parked in there…uh-oh. It’s important to keep your garage door in good working condition on the basis of safety alone, but there’s another point.
2 Appearance — It may not be as important as the safety of your home, but appearances matter! If your garage door is stuck permanently open, then your neighbors (and strangers on the street) might have a lot to say about its contents. If there’s bad weather, the items inside will be affected. Or if the door is damaged somehow, bent or cracked, that doesn’t look good either. It may seemingly only be an issue if you’re readying to sell, but it’s still important to maintain regardless of homeowner status.
Garage door repair should never be put off for these two main reasons. It may seem like a hassle, or that it’s too expensive, but when you think about it, you use your garage door every single day. Why not take care of it? Garage Door Doctors is ready to address any repair needs you have.
