Pool Construction Tips

Hi, I'm Mandy. If you're looking for tips on pool construction, you've come to the right place. We've just had a new pool installed and I'm full of advice! When I started on our pool I thought it would be an easy build. Boy, was I wrong. I didn't know anything about building a pool apart from the fact I wanted one. Luckily, our construction company set me straight. They helped me work out how big the pool could be and they showed me which shape would suit our yard space. They sorted out permits and even gave me advice on fencing. To find out what I learned, read through my blog. Hope it helps!

Stay safe and dry by fitting a garage roller door opener

by Bessie Beck

Your car is a valuable asset, and you shouldn't risk exposing it to damage or potential theft by leaving it parked on the road or outside your home overnight. Choosing to park your car in your garage is always a great decision -- for security and also as a way of protecting your car from the elements -- but it isn't always the most convenient option. You can't normally leave your garage doors open all day, and that means that when you get home at night you are forced to get out of the car and struggle to unlock the garage in the dark. You then need to open the garage door, get back in the car and drive into the garage before exiting the car and locking the garage door. If it happens to be raining, you are forced to endure a soaking while trying to keep your car dry; even when it's dry, you are exposed to potential attackers who may have been waiting for your arrival to gain entrance to your property.

What's the best solution?

There is a way to protect you and your car without the inconvenience of manually opening and closing garage doors all the time. By fitting a garage roller door opener you can have a garage door that opens at the touch of a button, allowing you to approach your garage door and drive straight into the garage. You won't need to get out of the car until your vehicle is sitting safely in the garage.

Are garage roller doors safe?

Some people are concerned about automatic garage doors, believing that they could pose a risk to their vehicle or to pets or children who may be in the vicinity and accidentally get caught in the door as it is closing. That concern is entirely unfounded. While it is always possible for you to trigger the closing mechanism of the door unintentionally, or before your vehicle is fully inside the garage, such an action will not allow the garage door to come into contact with anything that might prevent it from closing. An automatic garage door will always be fitted with sensors to ensure that if anything is detected in the path of the closing door, the door will not be allowed to close and crush or trap anything or anyone.
