Reserve one spot in your car for the door opener of your garage, and keep it there always. Failing to do so could find you fumbling to find the opener in the dark. In a distracted state, with your car in drive but with your foot on the brake, your car could inch forward and – you guessed it – ram the garage door. While you’re at it, hide the opener in a console or the glove compartment so that it is not visible to potential car and house thieves.
uPVC is naturally resilient to moisture, mould, mildew and atmospheric contaminations,. It does not flake, rot, rust, blister and is resistant to salt corrosion. This brands uPVC windows and doors as durable different from wooden one’s which require regular upkeep. unPlasticized Polyvinyl Chloride material is the most durable. In overall, new technology uPVC windows are estimated to last for 30-40 years, while the lifespan of timber is nearly half less and rarely go beyond 15-20 years.
On the other hand, doors are heavy, difficult to manoeuvre and take up a lot of space. The trestles might leave contact marks behind; and you will have to wait several hours for the first side to dry before you can paint the second one. In practice, most home owners prefer to decorate the door in the frame. Wait for a warm day (at least 10°C) with no wind, to avoid dust being blown on to the wet paint. Don’t work in strong sunlight as the paint may blister. Wedge the door open before you start, and place some cardboard underneath to catch drips.
