Tips for Choosing from an endless array of Colors

As one of the largest single features of a home, a garage door’s color can play a major role in how much or how little your home stands out from your neighbors. Not only can it have an aesthetic impact, but your garage door’s color can also affect your home’s value.

One mistake you will want to avoid is choosing the same accent color as the front door, this can draw too much attention to the garage door and creates to many focal points.

You will want to find a color that is blends well with the color of the home. This guarantees that the garage door colors will harmonize with the rest of the home and give you nice curb appeal. You might choose wood garage doors, or a modern style but in the end its all you.

Galvanized Steel Lift Cable

Lift cable comparison

The galvanized steel lift cables that are installed on your new garage door are corrosion and humidity resistant.

These lift cables come standard and is aimed at addressing concerns of extreme corrosion that may be prevalent.

All of Martin's lift cables come standard 1/8 inch thick, or 3.175 mm, compared to the industry standard of 1/16 of an inch or 1.58 mm. One safety feature of the Martin Door lift cables is that even on low clearance/low headroom applications, the cables are located inside between the track and the door section.  It's safer because they are hidden and won't get in the way of your fingers.

Don't let kids take a ride

Child ridding garage doorIt's better to eliminate the risk, than simply warn a homeowners about the risks, especially when it comes to a child's safety.

The lure of the garage door is too much for many small children, who see potential adventure in riding the door up and down.

Martin Door doesn't think this lure is going to go away. “You're not going to stop children from riding garage doors with signs or training, but you can make the garage door safer!” Dave Martin said.

Martin has done just that, by building extra prevention into each Martin Garage Door. It is difficult for any child to take a ride on a Martin Door. If they do, extra safety is built into each section joint with finger safety joint and Low Profile Hinges. This prevention carries into other areas of the door; from the inside lift cable, to removing holes in the vertical track to having rolled edge tracks. The Consumer Product Safety Commission's latest report estimates to many accidents related to garage door use each year. The CPSC estimates that roughly 2,211 serious incidents occurred with children 14 and under.

Putting a face on those numbers only makes the issue more real. For example, in a northern Utah community two kids thought it would be fun to ride a garage door at their home. One of the boys put his fingers in the section joint. When the door reached the ground he was trapped. He had to be rushed to the hospital.  Martin said. “It's an embarrassment to our industry to make dangerious garage doors; Just fix the door.  ”
