You Backed Your Car Into Your Garage Door
It’s bound to happen at some point in your life. If you don’t run your car into your garage door, there’s a good chance someone else might do it. Newly licensed or practicing driving teens in your home have a good chance of misjudging or accelerating the vehicle causing a dent in your garage door. It’s also common for individuals to begin backing out of the garage when the garage door is not entirely open. Weather conditions can also lead to an accidental slide into your garage door. Icy driveways can lead to an inability to break or avoid running into your garage door. There are also instances when you forget you have something strapped to the top of your vehicle and you pull in with insufficient clearance, damaging your garage door.
All these situations can cause you distress. Not only does your dented garage door look bad, but it also can make you feel unsafe if it doesn’t function properly and secure your home from intrusions. Also, you may begin trying to compute the amount of money you will need to spend on this unfortunate event. You may wonder, “Will my insurance cover the damage done to my car or garage door?” Christopher Williams with Pocket Sense offers sound advice when navigating your financial responsibilities and the responsibilities of your insurance company after a garage accident.
When Your Garage Door Springs Are Faulty
If your garage door springs are faulty, your garage door will most likely no longer function. The springs on your garage door are vital in the door’s ability to open and close properly. Broken garage door springs can happen for a variety of reasons. They may visually wear out over time. Separation may occur in them. Alternatively, they may begin to lose tension, which causes sagging and further harm if not replaced.
While garage springs are a tiny part of your door, they play a vital role in its function. You can spot a non-functioning spring by looking for a gap of a few inches in the middle of your torsion spring. You can also judge the rate that your door is closing. If it closes quickly, the spring is not functioning correctly. If your spring is broken, it will not allow you to pull the emergency rope and open your door.
You need A New Garage Door Or A Replacement Garage Door
Getting a new garage door is exciting. Garage doors can provide your home with aesthetics to accent your home or business. Don’t dismiss the value and beauty a garage door can provide for you. Pocket Sense provides valuable information on the value a garage door can add to your home appraisal. They state, “If you spend on the low end of According to Remodeling magazine’s Cost Versus Value Report, you can expect to recoup about 76.9 percent of the cost of the new door and its installation in increased value, making it a good investment.” They go on to explain, “At the high end, you’ll get an 85 percent on your investment for a $2,810 door with $3,300 installation. Compare this with a bathroom remodel, at 64.8 percent and a backyard patio at 54.9 percent, and it’s a good deal.”
