Garage Door – Another Thing to Consider When Buying a House
One of the things you have to take into account when buying a house is a garage door. Though a minor expense in comparison to other things you will have to buy, it is still an expense.
Like everything else, there is a wide range of prices for garage doors. It is all a matter of type and quality. There is also a factor of size – whether you want a single or double door.
Doors available on the market may cost you 200 – 4,000 dollars. The average price (including installation) revolves around 1,000 dollars.
Another thing you must think of is maintenance. Since the doors are automatic, they tend to get broken and so demand repair. To minimize cost, you will have to find a reliable garage door repairman that will not charge you with excessive prices.
Short research on the Internet reveals that the average repair price (included labor charge) is approximately 200 dollars – of course, it depends on the type of damage.
Now that you know all of that, you can choose wisely to equip your house garage with a door at a reasonable price. Finally, before we conclude, we must say a word or two about safety.
Safety becomes an important issue especially when you have kids. To prevent accidents, you must make sure the garage door is equipped with pressure sensors to make sure a kid is not trapped when the door closes. Second, the switch that opens the door must be placed beyond the reach of young children. Children love to play with closing and opening the door and that puts them in danger. These devices can be easily installed by any technician at a minimum cost.
