Advanced Door Ogden UT Garage Door

Your garage door – it’s there, stoically guarding your car and your stuff. But beyond its practical purpose, there’s a surprising amount of fun and interesting facts hiding behind that big panel. At Advanced Door, we’re passionate about all things garage doors, so buckle up and get ready for some fascinating trivia!

Fact #1: A Historical Heavy Hitter:

The concept of a garage door as we know it is a relatively recent invention. The first “upward-lifting” garage door was created by C.G. Johnson in 1921, a mere 100 years ago! Before that, carriages were often kept in horse-drawn versions of carports.

Fact #2: More Than Meets the Eye:

The average garage door opens and closes a whopping 1,500 times per year! That’s a lot of wear and tear, which is why regular maintenance is so crucial. Advanced Door offers comprehensive maintenance plans to keep your garage door functioning smoothly and safely.

Fact #3: A Home Away From Home (For Famous Bands, That Is):

Believe it or not, many iconic bands got their start jamming in garages! From The Beatles to Metallica, these legendary musicians honed their craft in the humble space behind the house. Who knows, maybe your garage door is hiding the next rock stars?

Fact #4: A Brainy Business:

Modern garage door openers are packed with smart technology. Gone are the days of easily copied codes; rolling codes ensure your opener transmits a unique signal each time, preventing unauthorized access. Advanced Door can install and service the latest in secure and convenient garage door openers.

Fact #5: Eco-Friendly Options:

Looking to make your home more sustainable? Energy-efficient garage doors are a great option! These doors are insulated to prevent heat transfer, reducing the strain on your HVAC system and lowering your energy bills. At Advanced Door, we offer a wide selection of energy-efficient garage doors to help you save money and the planet.

Fact #6: Hollywood Hero (Maybe):

Remember that iconic scene in “Back to the Future” where Marty McFly blasts off in his DeLorean through a garage door? Believe it or not, some speculate the filmmakers actually built a special breakaway door for that scene! Here at Advanced Door, we recommend more traditional methods of car exiting (like, you know, the driveway).

Fact #7: The Return on Investment King:

Thinking of upgrading your home? According to some reports, a new garage door replacement can offer a return on investment (ROI) of up to 98%! That’s a significant boost to your home’s value. Advanced Door can help you choose the perfect door to enhance your curb appeal and add lasting value to your property.
