It goes without saying that security is one of the most important aspects of a home—you’ll definitely want to keep yourself, your family, and your possessions safe. Criminals will often target weak and defenseless homes, and if your garage door is old, broken or damaged, then your property will appear vulnerable to those with ill intent. If such is the case, you’ll need to have a garage door repair or replacement done immediately. Investing in advanced garage door features openers, wall consoles, and motion sensors is a good option, but your first consideration should be your garage door’s condition; you need to ensure that it’s strong, sturdy, and reliable above all else. Remember: the condition of your garage door directly affects your home’s overall security.

West Palm Beach, in particular, has a long history of standing ground against many Atlantic hurricanes, having been in the path of 67 storms in the past 144 years. Although none of the three storms recorded this season reached Category III or even made landfall anywhere close to The Island, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) still advises the public to prepare for such an event.

A garage door leads a pretty basic life – going up and coming down repeatedly at your bidding, until that fateful day when it decides to ignore your commands and stay put. This may not seem much like a big deal, but what if there is an emergency and you need to drive out immediately?
If being stuck inside is bad enough, what happens when you’re stuck outside? A garage door may not seem like much, but on those days when the weather is less than favorable, you’ll be considerably glad to have one.

Life in Fort Lauderdale can be pretty great, especially if you have all the necessary equipment and amenities at your disposal. One of such necessities is a fully functional garage door. This is because the weather conditions can sometimes be erratic and surely you don’t want the elements making a mess of your garage. Sometimes, this means calling for repairs; other times, a replacement may be inevitable. How do you identify which?
Chipping paint and the occasional dents are pretty normal in any garage door. A new coat of paint, along with a few hammerings here and there, can easily resolve those concerns. There are some instances, however, wherein the repair option is no longer feasible and you have no other choice but to call for a replacement.

Before calling local garage door repair professionals, check if you really have a sensor issue – but exercise caution when you do. First, it helps to know how typical safety sensors work. There are often two sensors, one on each side, with one sending the other a beam of infrared light. When this beam is disturbed, the door would refuse to budge, as a standard safety procedure. The electronic components inside sensors are typically long-lived, but they’re not invulnerable to failures over time.

Springs are perhaps one of the most underappreciated components of a typical garage door. Such a belief is understandable in a sense, but choosing to almost completely ignore the springs is quite uncalled-for—without them, the door wouldn’t even be able to work properly. Any sort of trouble with your garage door has, more or less, something to do with these springs, and you’ll have to know when they’ve actually failed. A garage door’s springs can give out under a variety of ways, as any local garage door repair expert in or around Tamarac would confirm. In general, a good combination of continuous lifting and weather changes can gradually weaken the metal springs and cause them to break. When they do break, they don’t do so quietly: the garage door falls down in a large bang that could severely injure or destroy anything blocking its path on the way down.
