A Challenging Home Project For Any Handyman Enthusiast

If you are handy with tools and love to create applications, whether out of wood and other materials with your own hands, creating a secure space for your car might be a good project to take up. If you have recently moved to a new home or are refurbishing your old one, many changes can be done in a home front including the driveway or other spaces.

Installation of gates for your car parking space

If your home does not have a secure garage space you might choose that as a handy assignment to take up. Installing a garage door might be daunting, especially when one has not done a similar project before. However, many attempt garage door repair by themselves if they have the expertise or enthusiasm or simply feel that it saves them money.

How to begin?

To begin with a garage door installation or replacement project one needs to decide on the door spring system before looking at the garage door price options. There are mainly two types that are commonly used, a standard torso spring mechanism and an extended spring system. The prior system might be daunting as it has a spring and drum system which needs to be installed in a manually wound state under pressure. This is not required for an extended spring system. Some garage door kits come complete with materials and spring systems along with necessary instructions. In order to attempt any such project, it is imperative that tape measure, pliers, hammer, screwdriver and level are kept handy as tools for such a project. Often garage door materials come in sections that need to be assembled right and then installed along with the spring system.

Benefit of expert help

For a homeowner who has not installed garage doors before, it might be a dangerous task to attempt all by oneself. If the assembling is not done right, it would mean more trouble. To avoid such mishaps, it is best to refer to garage door specialists. Many offer new garage door installation services as well as help in replacing old doors. With an expert service you can be sure that your garage door will be fixed and working in no time. It is usually a few hours’ work of a team of garage door specialists. You will also have a range of designs to choose from. As a result, you can find attractive garage door designs to choose from as well as get the installation done with a new and functional garage door within minutes. Nowadays, most garage door experts list their services online.

5 Brilliant Ways To Upgrade Your Existing Garage

Let’s admit it, out of all the places in our home, the garage gets the least amount of love. Oh, sure; we keep it clean and tidy. After all, it is the home for our ever-useful mode of transport. But when we consider the upgrades and the modernizations that the rest of the house received throughout the years, we’ll notice that this part of the house is rarely got a thought. In fact, we’d say that the only times people ever think of their garage, is when its safety has been compromised. Let’s change that today! Here are a few brilliant ways to upgrade and bring it up to date.

Make better storage and organizing options – Make it easy to keep your garage clutter free. Wall shelves are a great way to display the frequently used tools; and having a specific space for each tool makes it easier to keep the place organized. If you have the space, install cabinets for further storage options, and for tucking away the tools that are not often used. If you have limited space within your garage, consider opting for ceiling storage. This is a great option for other small spaces too. Remember to clear up the clutter before you install your upgrades.

Upgrade the door – This is something most people do, only if the door is damaged. But this is a great option to consider when thinking of upgrading. If you have an old fashioned manual sectional garage door, opt for the remote-controlled roller shutter type doors instead. Remember that even an upgrade on the locks of the door can make a huge difference to your garage and its safety.

Connecting to it – In relation to the above, this gives you another option in regards to your doors. Rather than simply installing or upgrading your garage door motor, consider having it connected to a mobile app that enables you to close and open it with a voice command, or even your phone. Apart from this, CCTV cameras and indicator lights (to show if you garage door is shut right) are also great upgrade options.

Insulate the area – Most people avoid being around the garage during the colder parts of the day and year. That’s because this place isn’t insulated, and you’ll only end up freezing yourself. To make sure that your haste to get back to the warmth doesn’t keep you from giving your vehicle the care it needs, provide the garage its share of warmth.

Make better use of this area – As most families now-a-days have more than one vehicle, having a garage that is built only for one vehicle can be inconvenient. If the height permits, consider getting a vehicle lift installed inside. This will allow you to park more than one vehicle at a time…
