Have you ever been to an outdoor movie? Movies on the lawn are a summertime tradition, the hallmark of festivals and family gatherings. There’s few things that bring a community or family together better than gathering everyone on the grass to watch a timeless classic, projected on the big screen. Unfortunately, those huge screens can be hard for a homeowner to come by! Inflatable screens are expensive and difficult to set up, and finding a wall that’s both the right color and the right position can be impossible. Instead, why not turn to your handy garage door to get the job done?
When was your residential garage door installed? Many homeowners can’t even answer that simple question, since they’ve had the same garage door for as long as they’ve lived in their home and didn’t ask the previous owners about the state of the door. For some reason, some homeowners assume that their garage door will keep working forever. Their door is big and noisy, but it works every time they press a button so it seems reasonable to assume that the door will continue working so long as no one hits it with a car!
When you look at your garage door, you probably don’t feel very inspired. That’s okay! Here at A Plus Garage Doors, we live and breath garage doors, and even we can understand that most homeowners aren’t exactly in love with theirs. The garage door can be an eyesore, or a headache, or just a loud grumbling part of your morning routine that is forgotten the second you close it behind you on your way to work. For some people, however, that isn’t enough. Some people look at their garage door and are inspired… Today’s blog goes out to them!
People use their garages for all kinds of things, but consistently we see two uses that stand out as the most common. Many people store things in the garage, and many (although perhaps fewer than you’d expert!) also keep their cars there. For some people, however, they can practice their hobby and keep their cars indoors at the same time. For anyone who collects hot rods or considers themselves a hobbyist mechanic, the thought of leaving their beautiful custom car outside, exposed to the elements, is unthinkable. The garage has always been home to tinkerers and auto experts, but some modern chop shops take this fascination to a whole new level.
