It’s not often that you see someone driving around in a car that still has hand-cranked windows, but they’re certainly out there. Similarly, manual-open garage doors may seem like a thing of the past, but they’re not gone yet. As we often discuss here at FS Construction Services, garage doors are only as effective as they are convenient. A good, working garage door is almost invisible, something you expect to open and close every time you need it to, and then it’s completely forgotten. And while we know many have either switched to or inherited automatic garage door openers, we also know there are some out there who haven’t made the jump yet. So in case you’re someone who is still hanging on to their manual-open garage door, here are a few reasons why it might be time for an upgrade.
Why You Need Automatic Garage Door Openers
As previously stated, garage doors are all about convenience. And there is nothing more convenient than a big, heavy door you don’t have to lift yourself. Plus you don’t have to linger in bad weather, navigate an armload of groceries, or groan at the extra effort and time lifting the door adds on to every trip.
However, perhaps even more important than convenience is security. Automatic garage doors will keep what’s in your garage safe and protected. With many doors you can even have the option of controlling them from your phone, offering a guest the ability to use your door, and so on.
Most automatic garage door openers feature lights that will turn on when you open them, meaning you no longer have to stumble your way through a dark garage feeling for the switch. Automatic garage door openers come with a variety of features and options, meaning you can find the right fit at the right price and finally leave behind the days of heaving a heavy door over your head.
