Now she knows that something isnt right. As she stands there rubbing her eyes trying to make sense of what was happening a man suddenly emerges from her family room looking at one of her familys DVD covers. At that point the wife begins screaming for her husband "Someone is in the house! Get up! Get up! When the husband ran out of the bedroom he saw the criminal sprinting across the house to the front door. It just so happens that there was a child safety lock on the front door so the home invader stood there struggling with the front door long enough for the husband to retrieve his rifle and grab the man. The police soon came as they held the robber at bay and an arrest was made. It turns out that this burglar was part of a group who had been invading homes in the area.
This story was published in the "Far North Dallas Advocate" magazine in the March 2011 issue. It had a happy ending but how easily it could have turned tragic. What if the wife had not awakened during the night? What if the husband did not have a rifle? What if the robber struggled with the husband and took his rifle away? A simple robbery could have easily turned into a homicide. Now ask yourself this: "What if that had been your home and your family that were threatened?"
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.
There is a wide range as well when it comes to choosing the material of the garage door. You can choose any one from Steel fiberglass plain old wood or polyethylene base don your requirements. Steel doors are the strongest and most durable whereas high density polyethylene doors never dent rust or fade and do not require to be repainted. Fiberglass doors can also be an option if you want some natural light to pass through as these materials are translucent and also maintenance free. Conventional wooden doors would well fit into your budget and requirements but the low initial cost might be deceiving as the maintenance cost is relatively higher than the other options; wooden doors require regular check ups for warps and rotting.
