Looking for something fun to to this spring? Why not try something new and learn all about garage doors at the International Door Association Expo in Nashville, Tennessee, which will be held at the end of April 2009. If you happen to be in the area or live close by, then this expo can provide you with some fantastic ideas for updating your garage door. You'll also be able to meet many garage door contractors, suppliers and manufacturers. Your home is important, so why not gather as much information as you can before making any updates?
On a much sadder note, a recent accident involving a child and a garage door at a home in Palmdale, California (near Los Angeles) highlights the importance of garage door safety and maintenance. A malfunctioning garage door struck and killed a 3-year-old boy. There is no way to know if this horrible tragedy could have been prevented, as any system can malfunction at any time without warning, even if it is a top product and well maintained. But with that said, many garage door accidents can be prevented with maintenance and by having the proper safety features installed on your garage door. Do your part to prevent an accident and have your garage door installed by a reliable garage door installer.
