Our Top Five Places for Garage Door Inspiration



August is the perfect time of the year to invest in a new garage door. Summer is in full swing, but soon those fall home improvement will be underway, just in time for the busy holidays. As time flies by, it may be a good idea to start looking at garage door ideas that will inspire you to choose the right garage door for your budget and style.

To help you get started, the team at Ramirez Overhead Door have put together a list of the top five places to look for garage door inspiration. Some you can do in the comfort of your own home. The last tip (and our favorite) requires you to get up off the couch, but it’s well worth it!

Houzz

We absolutely love Houzz for its huge collection of garage door photos, as well as photos and ideas about how to repurpose your garage into something unique and special. Houzz also features a great Advice and Stories section where you can read about homeowners experiences with choosing a garage door and how they customized the door to suit the look of their home.

The Clopay Website

Not only can you view Clopay’s entire collection on their website but here you can also find an ideas book and a buyer’s guide. You can also compare doors on the site, so you can choose doors you’re interested in and then check them out side-by-side to see which one will work better for your home.

Pinterest

As you peruse the web for great garage door ideas, you’ll need a place to keep track of what you’ve found. Pinterest is our favorite way to organize garage door photos and inspirations. It’s easy to navigate, and as you build your Pinterest board for garage door ideas, you’ll get cued into what others put on their Pinterest boards, too, which will give you even more inspiration.

Your Neighborhood

That’s right. Inspiration can be found just outside your door. Take a look at the homes in your neighborhood that you love and check their garage doors and what you like about them. You’ll notice that some of the best-looking houses on the block are the ones with garage doors that work with the look of the home.

Five Garage Door Safety Tips from Ramirez Overhead Doors


At Ramirez Overhead Door, we take garage door safety seriously and we hope you do, too.

To keep you safe in your garage, we’ve put together list of garage door problems that can lead to injuries if you aren’t careful. 

Common garage door injuries range from getting fingers caught between sections of the door to malfunctioning doors that fall, to injuries from broken springs and the myriad of others caused when you try to repair your garage door yourself.

The good news is that injuries can be avoided. Below are some garage door safety tips to follow this month and every month.

Check the cables. If you check the cables that attach to your springs, you can see if they are frayed or breaking. If you notice significant wear like this, contact a technician and schedule an appointment. If a cable breaks, it can result in very serious injury. 

Replace old springs. Garage door springs are vital to your garage door working safely. As the springs get older, they break, which can be dangerous. Make sure to get your springs checked by a professional regularly, especially if the doors are older. And when you replace them, always choose to replace both (if your garage door uses two), even if only one is broken.

Maintain regular service. No matter how old your garage door is, you should get it serviced once a year by professionals. Our team can ensure that every component of your garage door system is working properly. This isn’t just for safety reasons, but for cost too. Regular garage door service can save you on costly repairs. 

It’s not DIY it’s NDIY: When it comes to garage door repair, we say “Never Do It Yourself.”  It can be tempting to try to install a garage door or repair one on your own, but please don’t do it. We’d rather you sit back, relax, and let us handle the job. Ramirez Overhead Door technicians are experts and stand by the work they do for businesses and homes.

Don’t ignore a struggling door. When your door isn’t moving up and down normally, or if it is making sounds like creaking or crunching, it should be checked by a garage door technician. Sometimes springs can become out of balance and cause the door to not move properly. Other times, it can be normal wear-and-tear, especially if it is an older door. 

Let this summer be about enjoying time with family and friends, not about trips to the ER from faulty garage door parts or after a DIY project goes awry. Contact the team at Ramirez Overhead Door in Vacaville and let us handle the work so you and your loved ones can stay safe and secure.
