M.J. Iqbal, owner of Sara’s Garage Doors said it is unsafe to keep using older model garage door openers.
“When you consider the recent spate of bad news about thieves breaking into homes through garage doors, you will understand why upgrading your garage door to the newest model is not an option. It is simply important,” Iqbal said in his office in Houston, Texas earlier today.
The Houston and Katy garage door specialist said besides security, there are other reasons area residents need to urgently upgrade their garage door openers.
“Most homeowners have garage door openers that are really noisy when they open or close their garage doors. This is because they have garage doors that use chain drive instead of the newer screw or belt drive,” Iqbal said.
He said newer garage doors have better features and safety mechanisms.
“Most new door openers come with internet connectivity and remote operation functions, alerts homeowners when left unsecured or during security breach and come with battery backup. They also have the added benefit of operating with two or more sensors allowing them to reverse in cases of obstacles or obstructions during operation. This feature alone is invaluable to families with children,” Iqbal said.
He added that these additional functionalities and safety benefits alone is enough for any homeowner to replace their door openers.
“They are worth the additional cost of replacing these garage door openers. If they protect your family from harm, stop thieves from breaking into your home and stealing your property or simply give you the peace of mind of knowing that your home is secure, then the investment is worth it,” Iqbal said.
