5 Tips on How to Efficiently Organize Your Garage Storage

Your garage should be more than just a convenient place to keep your car or an additional entranceway into your home. If you have a high-quality garage door with a secure garage door opening system, you can also use your garage to safely store countless valuables without worry.

Here are five handy tips for efficiently organizing your garage into a superior storage space:

1.     Install Shelving Systems

Shelves are an easy and inexpensive way to keep your garage organized. Try to dedicate one entire wall to a shelving system, if it still leaves enough room for your vehicle. Shelves are great for organizing cleaners, motor oil, or gardening tools. You can place plastic baskets on the shelves to keep smaller items organized.

2.     Overhead Racking System

Purchase some form of racking system for the ceiling of your garage to utilize all of the available space. The overhead section of your garage is perfect for suspending sporting equipment like tennis rackets, baseball bats, and hockey sticks. It is also a great spot for things you only use seasonally like camping gear, the weed-whacker, and fishing poles.

3.     Buy a Cabinet for Your Garage

Add a simple two-door cabinet in your garage to keep all of your more expensive tools hidden and protected from the elements. If you have a tight budget, choose a cabinet made with an inexpensive wood or hard plastic. There are also some incredible steel cabinets and tool chests you can use, if you have room in your garage and the budget to afford it. It is a good idea to put a lock on the cabinet, unless you are completly confident in the security of your garage door system.

4.     Pegboards for Tools

Another great organizational tip for your garage is installing a pegboard to hang your small tools on. This will make them look neat and ensure they are easily accessible when you are using them inside of the garage.

5.     Ask a Professional

If you have an exceptionally large garage or a lot of stuff that needs organizing, you can always consult an organizational or home interior specialist for advice. The garage door specialists at Perfect Solutions can also provide some tips specific to your exact garage layout.

A garage is an extension of your home, and you should be proud of its exterior and interior appearance. If you need help securing your garage door, or you are looking for more tips on how to maximize the space, please contact the team at Perfect Solutions Garage Doors.

What You Need to Know Before Calling a Garage Door Company

garage doorIf you are having issues with your automatic garage door, it will be beneficial to prepare yourself for the questions you will be asked before you call the repair company. Most reputable garage door companies like Perfect Solutions will ask questions on the phone, so they can serve you more efficiently once they arrive at your house.

Be leery of any garage door company that doesn’t ask the following questions during the initial phone conversation. There is a good chance they plan on dragging out the diagnostic process, so they can charge more in labor later on.

Here are four answers you should have ready before you call a garage door company:

1.       Know Your Make & Model

Professional garage door technicians will ask the make and model of the garage door opener in advance, so they can bring the right tools and spare parts to fix that particular model. The team at Perfect Solutions Garage Doors will also conduct some preliminary research to see if there are any common problems with that particular make or model.

2.       Know the Type of Drive Mechanism

It will be easier for the garage door technician to diagnosis the problem if they know what type of drive mechanism is being used, especially if it is an issue with the motor. Your automatic garage door will either have a belt-drive, chain-drive, or screw-drive system. Your owner’s manual should specify the drive mechanism if you are unsure of it.

3.       Know the Doors History & Symptoms

Most garage door companies will ask how long you have had the garage door opener and how long the problem has been going on. Make sure you can clearly describe the reason you are calling, when it started, and any steps you’ve taken to try to fix it on your own.

4.       Know the Cause of the Problem

Take a few minutes to inspect the tracking, pulleys, springs, and chains before calling the garage door company. Try to figure out what may be causing the problem on your own before the repairman visits your house. Some less-than-trustworthy companies will take advantage of homeowners by exaggerating the cause of the problem, although you will never have to worry about that happening at Perfect Solutions Garage Door.

Most garage door repairs will be easy and inexpensive if you use the right company. You can make it easier on the garage door company by knowing your garage door’s make, model, drive mechanism, history, symptoms, and possible cause of the problem. The experts at Perfect Solutions Garage Door are available if you have any questions or concerns.

Five Essential Tips for Better Garage Door Security

shutterstock_1589767Unwanted intruders will often choose a garage door as an entry point for mischief and mayhem because it is more discreet than the front door and more accessible than a back door. Garage doors also make it easier to sneak inside the house unnoticed, especially since most people fail to lock the door connecting the garage to the house.

Perfect Solutions Garage Door wants to help our customers stay safe and secure, which is why we are positing these five essential tips for better garage door security.

1.     Lock the Inside Door

It may take away from the convenience factor for your family, since they will need to unlock the door to get inside and out, but it will also make the entryway less convenient for an intruder. You can hang up a key to that particular door on the inside of the house, so your family can bring it with them if they plan on traveling in and out of the house through the garage door. For greater security, you should have an alarm on both the garage door and the interior door to your home.

2.     Shut the Garage Door

Hopefully you already keep the garage door shut when you are not home or sleeping, but you should also keep it shut when you are doing work around the house, even if you are outside. An open garage is an advertisement to thieves of what you have inside that they might want to take. They could drive by during the day and see your fancy car, expensive toys, and high-tech equipment and then decide that it is worth a return visit when you’re not home to protect your belongings.

3.     Keep it Well-lit

Perfect Solutions Garage Door encourages all of our customers to purchase spotlighting and an interior lighting system. Intruders prefer to work in the dark, and security lighting will make it difficult for them to do their dirty work.

4.     Upgrade Your Garage Door Opener

Today’s modern garage door openers have incredible new security features that thieves haven’t figured out how to crack, like rolling code entry systems. It may be worth it to get an upgrade if your system is more than five years old.

5.     Don’t Leave the Remote in Your Car

Most modern garage door openers will come with a remote control access feature that can be hooked onto your keychain. This is much safer than the older version that hung from your car’s visor. You should protect your garage door remote the same way you protect your house key.

Perfect Solutions Garage Door can help with the installation of a new garage door opener or any other garage door security features that will help make you and your family feel more protected.
