electric garage doorWe’ve all been there: you come home from work and drive up to your garage door, reach for the remote, point, and begin clicking tentatively, twisting your wrist and altering the pressure in the hope that this might coax your garage door open. Alas, it doesn’t work. You vow that this is the last straw and you’ll get a replacement right away – but you don’t. And next week it starts all over again.

A faulty garage door opener isn’t the end of the world, but it’s definitely worth getting fixed. More than just a nuisance, it could cause some serious problems that you probably haven’t considered. So, this month, the team here at Diamond Garage Doors are on hand to convince you to change your faulty garage door opener!

It’s an entrance to your home

Many people don’t seem to know this, but 70% of homeowners use their garage door as a point of access to their house. So, for most people, their garage door is essential not just for storing their car, but for entering and leaving their property. If you fall into this group, then it’s certainly worth getting your garage door remote replaced. If your door keys were faulty, then you would almost certainly get them fixed, so you should do the same for your garage door remote, too!

What if your kids need access to your house?

It’s not the end of the world if you come home and can’t park your car in the garage because the remote’s playing up; however, it’s a much more serious matter if your children are using the remote. If you’re children ever need access to the house via the garage while you are not around – and the remote starts playing up again – then they could be locked out for hours. So, with that in mind, it’s certainly worth making sure your garage door is fully functional.

Your garage door stores your car

We think this is perhaps the most obvious reason for swapping out your defective remote: your garage is the most important storage facility in your home! Firstly, it stores your car! Besides your house, your vehicle is the most expensive thing that you own and not having immediate access to it, or not being able to store it properly, is an issue for everyone.

Your garage door is expensive

Think about it – your garage door is one of the largest and most expensive mechanisms in your home. And if the garage door controller doesn’t work – neither does the garage door. If you’re willing to invest money into a bespoke garage door that’s exactly to your tastes, then you should at least be willing to change the remote to keep your door functioning properly!
