Both recent and long-term key trends indicate that curb appeal projects generate higher return on investment than work completed in the interior of the home. Compared to other upgrades, garage door replacement now ranks at the top in a recently released annual survey.
Garage Door Replacement Offers the Biggest Bang for Your Buck
Remodeling Magazine’s 2018 Cost vs. Value Report compares the average cost for 21 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale. In this national survey, garage doors rank #1 with the least amount invested and the highest return. Nationally, homeowners can expect up to a 98 percent return on investment for their garage door replacement, on average. Now that’s using your money wisely, AND making the neighbors jealous!
Don’t wait until you are prepping to sell to make the improvement. Replace your garage doors now and enjoy your curb appeal while you still live there. Request a free quote today.
If your home has a garage, it is most likely the place you choose to store a step ladder. Reacquaint yourself with ladder safety at home in honor of National Ladder Safety Month.
Next time you take the ladder out to change light bulbs or reach something from a top shelf, take care to use stepladders safely and avoid common ladder injuries.
Prevalent Ladder Injuries
Did you know that 136,118 emergency room visits per year related to ladder injuries?
Compared to the following examples, chances are much more likely to be involved in an incident with a ladder.
- 19,000 emergency room visits per year from high heel related injuries
- 11,000 injuries per year from house fires
- 3,736 emergency room visits per year from microwaves

Take safety into your own hands by taking ladder safety seriously. Visit www.LadderSafetyMonth.com to learn more.
Ladder safety affects everyone. Whether at home or at work, you should take ladder safety seriously.
Ladder Safety and How It Affects Everyone
These numbers speak for themselves:
- 2,000 ladder injuries happen every day
- 364 deaths are caused by falls each year
- The most common ladder falls happen between 6 and 10 feet off the ground
How Do Most Common Ladder Accidents Happen?
- Missing the last step when climbing down
Avoid overreaching while using a ladder. You could lose your balance and the ladder could topple over, causing a fall.
Be sure to use the last step when you climb down. Skipping over the last step could lead to a fall if you trip.

June is Garage Door Safety Month. Since Overhead Door is the inventor of the upward-lifting garage door, we wanted to share some tips on maintaining the security and safety of your garage door.
Did you know that more than 70 percent of homeowners enter and exit through the garage? The garage is the most-often used entry point of the home, opening and closing an average of four times a day. That’s a lot foot traffic. It’s important to keep track of your garage door activity and ensure your garage door is well-maintained and functions safely.
Maintaining Garage Door Security
Managing the activity of your garage door is easy with OHD Anywhere™. With this application, you can control and monitor your garage door from anywhere. You can check if your garage door is open, closed or if there is any change to the door position. Know instantly when someone is operating your garage door, or open the door for anyone. Consider how great it would be for delivery, repair person or friends. All without having to provide the access password to your garage.
OHD Anywhere™ uses a sensor attached to the garage door. This is an important security advantage. Other systems monitor the opener, instead of the garage door position. The system alerts you whether the door changes to the fully open or closed position. Even if the door is operated manually by disengaging the door from the opener, you are notified.
OHD Anywhere™ delivers convenience, control, peace-of-mind and safety all in the palm of your hand. Another great tip: while on vacation, unplug the garage door opener unit. Or, use the vacation lock security switch on the wall console. This feature renders remotes unusable and is an optional accessory to most openers.
Garage Door Safety Tips:
- Keeping your garage door in working order is also important to safety. First, test the reversing mechanism by placing a 2-inch by 4-inch board in the door’s path. If the door does not reverse after contacting the object, call us or schedule a repair online.
- If the opener has not been replaced since 1993, replace the garage door opener with a new one that has safety beams and auto-reverse as a standard feature.
- All garage door owners should make sure that their little ones are kept safe when playing in or around garages. Make sure the garage door opener control button is out of the reach of children. Also, do not let them play with garage door remote controls.
- Visually inspect the garage door for wear and tear. Pay particular attention to springs, cables, rollers and pulleys. Do not attempt to remove, adjust or repair these parts or anything attached to them. These parts are under high tension and should be fixed only by a trained garage door professional.
If you find there is an issue with your garage door or opener, make sure you contact us for service. Our garage door repair professionals are fully trained on how to properly (and safely) fix your garage doors.

Overhead Door Earns Women’s Choice Award® for Providing Outstanding Customer Experience For the Fifth Year in a row
As the leading advocacy for female consumers, WomenCertified® is delighted to honor Overhead Door with the Women’s Choice Award® based on extraordinary recommendations from their female customers in a customer satisfaction survey conducted by WomenCertified Inc. using the company’s customer database. Overhead Door, which provides door and door related products and services, received excellent survey scores in several areas including the overall sales experience where 9 out of 10 of their female customers reported that they would highly recommend Overhead Door to friends and family.
Female consumers represent a driving economic powerhouse, controlling 65%, or approximately $20 trillion annually, in global spending and more than 80% of US spending, according to the Harvard Business Review and the Continuum’s Women and Children Research Group. Coupling that with a recent Nielsen report on global trust in advertising, which stated that 92% of consumers trust recommendations from people they know over any other form of advertising, reveals the significance of being an America’s Most Recommended brand by women.
The Women’s Choice Award has set the standard for helping women make smarter choices by identifying the brands most recommended and trusted by women. Overhead Door is a brand that delivers a customer experience worthy of her recommendation.
Passi commented on how the Women’s Choice Award serves as a competitive differentiator in today’s cluttered marketplace by explaining, “When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. Those are the businesses we wish to recognize for their efforts and commitment to the number one consumer – women. We are proud of Overhead Door for providing a remarkable roofing experience and for creating a service experience that is exceptional for both women and men alike.”

If we told you that someone in your area had been convicted of nine counts residential burglary and nine counts of theft, you’d glad to know that person was sentenced to 10+ years in state prison…right?
What if we told you that the person guilty of these crimes was a technician for a garage door repair company who intentionally overcharged his customers so much, it was considered a felony?
You’d expect that such behavior would be discouraged from a garage door repair company, correct?
According to a fellow employee of the company, this technician made more than $300,000 for himself in 2015 and was even awarded a trip from his company as praise as for being a “top gun” with such large invoices.
Check out this article from DASMA in this link HERE with further details from this technician working with what has been called “The worst garage door company in the nation” by DASMA in a previous article from 2015.
