How loud should a garage sound?
They should be pretty whisper quiet, especially [if] the functionality of the opener [is good], as well as better rollers, better hinges, proper lubrication, proper maintenance, all those things. If the [homeowner] is leaving at 5 a.m., they [shouldn’t] wake up the rest of the home.
How often should professionals conduct maintenance checks on garage doors?
Ten thousand cycles is all those springs are designed to last, so a lot of times it’s a seven-year last for any garage door springs.
Can garage doors use smart housing technology?
You can get all kinds of technology on them. It’ll connect to your smart devices, your smart home features, and you can open it and close it from anywhere in the world. Your kids can open and close it if they’re coming home from school to an empty house.
The other one is the myQ app, which is an app that LiftMaster has, and that actually connects to Amazon. So if you have a bunch of Amazon deliveries ... the Amazon driver can actually open your garage door if you have a delivery registered through Prime. The Amazon thing is great to eliminate people from stealing your items off your porch like they do nowadays.
