Garages are highly flexible spaces both at home and in commercial settings. At home, you might set up a garage as a man cave or hobby workspace, rather than a storage room for cars. At a warehouse, you might opt to use a garage to service work vehicles or store industrial equipment. In either case, both home and industrial door maintenance is important to keep doors and equipment in proper working order. Damaged doors could disrupt daily life and business processes.
It’s also important to consider what type of door will work best. A horizontal rolling door is a great option for a warehouse or hanger, for example. Meanwhile, a 14 ft roll up door might be a better option for a barn or other medium-sized facility. With commercial applications, property owners will also want to consider things like warehouse door protection.
Whatever the specifics, even the best garage door will eventually break down. When this day comes, you’ll likely want to hire a residential or commercial garage door repair service contractor. This contractor will be able to repair the door, or if the door happens to be beyond repair, they might recommend replacement.
One of the benefits of sheds and garages is that they both create additional space outside of the living part of the home, which makes them pretty versatile in their use. If you’re in the market for buying a shed or you’ve got one on your property that you don’t quite know what to do with, here are three cool ideas that you might not have thought of.
1. A Cool Playhouse.
We’ve all wanted a cool playhouse or clubhouse when we were kids. You could make a haphhazardly slapped together ramshackle hut for yours, but that probably isn’t safe, and you probably don’t want to have to take your kids to urgent care (or face a personal injury lawsuit if one of your neighbors kids get injured) if the thing collapses. Small sheds are about the perfect size for a few kids to fit safely inside out in the yard, where you don’t have to listen to their blathering or screaming (because when one kid screams, they all do).
2. A Detached Man Cave.
Another really cool thing you can do with sheds and garages is a man cave that isn’t in the house. We all know that one of the functions of a man cave is to create a space for male recreation without interruption, which is going to be pretty impossible to do with a wife and kids running around the house. They will always find you. Taking it to a detached shed or repurposing the garage for a man cave space is going to make it easier to avoid interruption when you’re playing Call of Duty or pumping iron.
3. A Craft or Hobby Space.
Another really cool thing you can do with small sheds that you probably never thought of is create a craft or hobby space if you don’t have an extra room in the house. Even if you do, you run the risk of tragedies like getting glitter in the carpeting that will never come out or the permeating smell of hot glue which lingers for way too long.
