Has one of your garage door springs started slacking on the job? If your door is opening or closing unevenly it is usually because one of the springs is starting to lose its tension. This can become a very dangerous situation if not taken care of quickly.
A broken garage door spring can snap suddenly causing the entire door to fall. We don’t want this to happen. So now the question is do you have to replace both springs. We highly recommend it. It may not be a “necessity” at the moment but the springs are usually the same age with the same usage so if one is on its way out the other one probably is too. So instead of having a technician out twice in the span of a few months just go ahead and replace both springs at once!

Your garage is a perfect place for storing those things, right? Maybe not. Before you store things in your garage you need to consider what the item is, how you are going to store it, and where you are going to put it.
Your garage is a special environment. While it is enclosed and usually dry, It is not a closed off climate controlled place. Pests can get into your garage and temperatures and humidity levels can change. There are some things that you should not store in your garage.
First, you should never store food items in your garage. Food attracts a variety of pests that you just don’t want living amongst your things.
Second, you should never store wine, paints, or other temperature sensitive items in your garage. These items should be stored in environments that have an element of climate control so they retain their quality.
Finally, you should never store electronic items like computers or televisions in your garage. These items are subject to damage caused by changes in humidity. They should be stored inside where the temperature and humidity levels are more controlled.
For the items that you do store in your garage, you want to be conscious of how you are storing them.All fabric items like towels, linens, coats, and other clothing should be stored in closed plastic containers. Fabric items make great nesting places for pests, like mice. Keeping these items in the proper containers will protect them from critters.
In addition, you want to store as many items as you can on shelves, hooks, or in drawers. Keeping items off the floor will keep your garage looking neater and more organized and you will protect them from water damage if your garage leaks during a rain storm.
Your garage is a nice place to store things that you don’t use often or just need to keep out of the way. However, it is important to protect your things. Be mindful of items that could attract pests or be damaged by temperature or humidity changes. To protect the things that you do store in your garage, be sure to keep things off the floor by using shelving, hooks, and drawers.

When your garage door opener goes out, you’re often faced with a dilemma: Should you go with the same style of opener you had before, or should you take this opportunity to upgrade to a more current style of opener? (Of course, if you’ve upgraded in the past, this doesn’t apply to you, and you should never downgrade.) Well, considering that the vast majority of homeowners currently have a chain drive opener when they should have a belt drive, here are a few reasons why you should upgrade to a belt drive opener:
More modern style shows that you can stay hep with the times.
Reduced sound output makes for a more pleasurable garage door experience.
Increased reliability and serviceability as it’s a more modern piece of technological wonder.
I could come up with more, but really, the first is all you need. 😉

When it happened to Angel in 2014, they thought that it could never happen again. The Caledonia family assumed it was a fluke, a freak accident that saw their beloved family pet caught beneath the concrete driveway and the automatic garage door, an accident which ultimately crushed the cat to death. “Just a bad thing that happened and we didn’t expect it would happen again,” Carol Caledonia told local reporters at the time. In their town of 350 residents, even a cat’s untimely death could make headlines. Angel’s death fueled the local news cycle for weeks, as think pieces on the safety of automatic garage doors proliferated.
Now the Caledonias are making headlines again, because yet another family cat has succumbed to the garage door of their home, meeting its death because the garage door sensors failed to sense the cat slinking low along the ground. “You don’t think about it. You push a button and you don’t expect that pushing a button is going to kill your cat,” Carol Caledonia said. Strange though it may seem, the incidents have been traumatic for the family, whose members can’t help but blame themselves for what happened first to Angel and then to Piper, the most recent victim of their automatic garage door. This time around, the family has decided to sharing their story, in the hopes that sharing what happened to them can prevent another family from experiencing a similar loss. After taking pains to educate themselves at the local garage door manufacturer and retailer, the Caledonias say that some real and simple changes could protect your pets.
An expert told the family that the problem was the height of their garage door sensors. Sensors detect motion or obstructions in the path of the garage door, which signal it to stop closing or to reverse its course, preventing injury. These sensors work best when set at 8 inches or lower. The Staten Island garage door was likely set too high, and so they weren’t able to save Piper.
