An exterior reno, say Colin and Justin, is an investment that reaps rewards

We’ve all heard of ‘curb appeal’, or indeed ‘pavement presence’ as we call it back home in blighty.

Commanding admiration as onlookers gaze lovingly at your hard work, curb appeal should never be under estimated, particularly when it comes time to sell.

Real estate with a well-planned exterior, after all, is far more attractive to potential buyers than a dowdy looking approach that struggles to make a statement.

In our most recent Northern ‘fix’, the project’s front elevation had bags of ‘lakeside allure’ (that’s curb appeal in the rural context) but the rear elevation desperately needed help.

Painted insipid pale blue, we decreed the best course of remedial action ‘Wrought Iron’ by Benjamin Moore. So we brandished our brushes.

Or, rather, we flexed our bristles across the cottage’s lower reaches. The higher elements – and various apexes – were tackled by Tim, a good friend whose ‘ladder legs’ are eminently less shaky than our own.

Common garage door repair related FAQ

How long does it take to replace a garage door?

Roughly 3 to 4 hours, if done properly.

How often should my a garage door be serviced?

Your garage door is a large piece of moving equipment made up of many parts. Some families use their garage door more than their front door. We recommend having your garage door and operator serviced every year in order to ensure a properly working door and operator. The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warning signs” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result.

How long do garage door springs usually last?

The most common torsion springs have an expected life of about 10,000 cycles (one opening and one closing is a cycle.)

What is the life span of a garage door opener?

The average life span of a door opener can vary from 10 to 20 years depending on the model and usage.
