If you want to use your garage for parking, then a garage door opener is pretty much a must have feature. Once you have all of your clutter removed and you can fit your vehicles in your garage, then it's time to install an automatic opener. Whether it's excessive heat, cold, rain, or snow, openers are worth every single penny spent...period!
One problem I had, was that both my wife and I would often forget to close it when we would leave for work or to run errands. I thought, there has to be some kind of solution for this. Well...there is! If you have an automatic opener, then why not have an automatic closer to go with it?
Something to ponder...
How many times have you forgotten to close it? How many times did you drive away wondering? If I was to suggest you do just one thing for you garage, it would definitely be this: Get an automatic closer!! You'll love the security and peace of mind it delivers.
If you STILL don't think you need an automatic closer, then at the least a door monitor should be something to consider. It's a wireless device that lets you know if your door is open or closed. Best of all, you can locate the LED receiver anywhere in your house!
