Garage. Tuesday , October 17th , 2017 - 23:52:39 PM
I have been involved in numerous garage door lawsuits where many different reasons for an injury have occurred. Having been retained as expert witness for both plaintiff and defense, several common factors have been observed. In many cases, unqualified individuals have attempted to repair or install garage doors. They have lacked the knowledge, skills or even the basic required tools to perform the work safely and properly. I have been hired as an expert by garage door manufacturers and installers to defend claims that they are not responsible for alleged product defects. In most cases, the components that failed, failed as a result of abuse or improper installation on the part of the end user. As stated above, the installation of many garage doors is not appropriate for an untrained person. An exception to this relates to "do it yourself" garage door kits that are sold at local home centers. A homeowner could install the door because these kits do not come with a professional quality package of hardware that should or would require special knowledge for the installation. These kits do not typically employ torsion springs that would require special knowledge, proper tools, and working skills to install. The doors are typically for light duty use. Professional installation services are often available through a home center to assist a homeowner in need of a specialized installation. As with most trade specific tasks, years of experience working as a professional installer qualifies tradesmen for their contracting license. The average homeowner watching a few television shows that give rough explanations of how to install garage doors is not usually qualified to install his or her own door. These "how to" television shows are no substitute for the many skills acquired after working in the field.
On the other hand with more car garages than ever it’s very hard to find the right garage for you and your car. Factors that make up the perfect garage would be, affordable prices, friendly customer service, no nasty surprises, quick service and a clean & comfortable workshop. When looking for the best servicing garage for your car, it’s important to balance up these factors, where big chain garages are often cheaper, the service often falls. Some garages are specialists for certain cars, and when using the term ’specialist’, this does not have to mean expensive, it can just mean they have the knowledge and focused ability for that area.
The main reason garages are so convenient for doing projects is the fact that it often is irrelevant when they get messy. Garages are often finished in a way that there’s hardly any concern for ruining the finishing. If a child gets paint on the family room carpet, damages are costly. For many people, if a child gets paint on the garage floor, minimal cleanup is essential. After the paint is dry, it is safe to walk on, and many people don’t worry over paint on the garage floor. Because of this, garages pose a kind of conundrum with regards to finishing. It’s great to possess a garage that’s organized, and orderly, as well as somewhat attractive, but many people don’t feel that it’s essential to spend much money making a garage look good, at least internally. However, a garage that doubles being a comfortable work zone for projects will see more use in general.
