The first reason that every home needs a garage is because of the traditional usage of the space. Your garage keeps your car safe from a lot and is the obvious place to put it. Depending on where you live street parking may not be an option and so having your own garage is a necessity so that you don’t pile up parking tickets just from owning a car. However, there is more to the idea behind keeping your car in the garage than just legal necessity. A garage keeps your car safe and protected from just a bunch of different things. With a garage your car is safe from hazardous weather, things like snowstorms, windstorms and just bad rain won’t be able to touch your car because of your garage which is something that just wouldn’t be possible if you didn’t have a garage.
There are certain things that you can do to keep your garage from some of these things if you don’t have a garage, but oftentimes trying to shield your car from these problems just exacerbates others. If you park your car in your driveway under a tree to keep your car safe from things like rain you open your car up to more hazards like falling tree branches from heaps of snow, or just heavy winds. You also are still going to get some rain on your car in heavier showers so you can say goodbye to ever really having a clean car again. All of these problems are just some of the reasons why keeping your car in the garage has just become second nature to many people.
Besides weather becoming a problem and having the potential to do serious damage to your car there are in fact more reasons that garages are nearly mandatory for most homeowners. The other reasons also don’t necessarily preclude you to car ownership. Cyclists, and motorcycle owners use their garages just as much as most car owners maybe even more if they are both a car owner and own another type of transportation. A garage and garage door also help those who don’t use a car everyday in a variety of ways as well as helping those that use them among other types of transportation. A garage keeps your motorcycles, bicycles and even trailers just as safe from weather and other things as it keeps a car. This is another reason why even those who aren't always huge supporters of the car or even just hobbyists who love cycling or motorbiking still can get behind the idea of the garage and garage door being a near mandatory accessory for most homes.
It’s great, garages and garage doors are great. This should be obvious to anyone on a website that is about garage doors and garage door repair in general. However somehow we didn’t get to all of the reasons in this article so if you have comments about why you should repair your garage door or pass on that home without a garage then hold off and we should be able to get to a few more in the next article. Today we mostly looked at why people who own cars, which is the vast majority of the population, might love garages and garage doors, but up next we will look at some of the maybe lesser thought of ideas. We also looked at how garage owners who also cycle or have a motorcycle would find some pretty big similarities between the reasons why car owners love garages and the reasons why they might. Of course by big similarities I mean that they are pretty much identical. Next time we should get into things side from things like the weather and how they could affect your car as well as the legal problem of parking your car on the street or elsewhere if you don’t have a garage to park it in, something that most city dwellers will really know about. Whether you are already convinced as someone who loves their car and couldn’t think of leaving it out to deal with the rain, sleet and snow or you are still yet to be convinced as someone who sees their car more as a tool to simply carry you from point A to B then we will get to you. Follow up with us shortly to fin the next installment on why the garage is a near necessity for most modern day home owners.
