Here are 5 life hassles that are completely solved with modern garage door technology.
Forgot to Close the Garage Door? Do it From Your Phone
We’ve all been there. It’s early in the morning. The coffee hasn’t kicked in yet. You’re late for work. You forget to close the garage door. With a smart garage door, this is no longer a problem. First, you’ll get a phone notification you forgot to close the door. And then you’ll be able to close the door remotely from anywhere — sitting in traffic, at the office, playing a round of golf. Smart technology puts the power of control in your pocket, literally.
Someone Stole Your Amazon Order? Provide Deliverymen Specific Access
Smart garage doors put an end to package theft. You can leave special instructions to your delivery driver to call you when your package arrives. You can give them access to your garage door so they can place your package safely inside. Never lose another package again — and you don’t even need to glitter bomb the culprit.
Heating or Cooling Bills High? Get an Insulated Garage Door
It’s not your imagination — electric bills are getting more expensive. This is a phenomenon only further exacerbated by climate change. By installing a new garage door, you can opt for higher insulation. This is a good idea even in the beautiful weather of Sacramento, California or Seattle, Washington. California summers can get really hot, and Washington winters get really cold. An insulated door protects your garage, and by extension your home, from the heat as well as the cold. This improves the heating and cooling efficiency of your home.
Need More Space? Add a High-lift Design to that Insulated Garage Door
Space is certainly at a premium in Sacramento suburbs like Fair Oaks, Arden Arcade, Carmichael, and Citrus Heights, not to mention Seattle’s main metropolitan area and surrounding communities. With an insulated door, you can turn your garage into a comfortable living space. Transform it into an entertainment space, yoga studio, gym, or meditation sanctuary. The first step is to make it comfortable. Installing a new insulated garage door does just the trick.
Another feature common in new garage doors is a high-lift feature, which allows way more overhead space in your garage, so the garage door limits the use of your space way less.
