Tips to Organize Your Garage Door

Garage Door Repair Services of New Haven knows that it is difficult to keep up an organized system for your garage. Keeping a specific system in place will help you easily find anything you need. Here are some tips to organize your garage door.

Make Organization A Priority

Organizing takes time and effort. This is true with any area that is messy and cluttered. It is important that you set aside a good amount of time to organize your garage and find a place for each item. Depending on the amount of stuff you have, you should plan for a whole day or more.

The mess will seem overwhelming at first but plan to just start anyway. If you need to start with an area that is less cluttered, that’s fine. Remember, the result will make you feel great.

Get Tools You Need

You can’t organize without the proper tools. After you clear out your entire garage, it’s time to fill part of the area with supplies that will help. It’s helpful to think about the items you want before you go out and buy them.

Standing Shelves

Using shelves to organize your garage items will make a huge difference in the appearance and space. You can buy shelves or even make them. Regardless of the type you use, make sure they are durable and sturdy enough for holding heavy items.

Wire Shelving

If you need more space, think about installing wire shelves on the wall. These are inexpensive and allow more space. You can more than double your storage space by using different types of shelves.

Pegboards

Instead of storing all your tools in a toolbox or chest, try using pegboards. Installing pegboards ensures your tools are ready when you are. They also free up your toolbox for smaller tools.

Containers

Consider using various clear, plastic containers for your smaller items. Label them with a permanent marker and place them on your shelves. When you need a nail, screw, or other small tools, you will know where to find it.

Cabinets

Not all garage spaces are able to support cabinets. If you have space, these are an excellent idea for safely storing items. They are not expensive and you can securely attach them to the wall.

Use A System You Can Customize

Any sporting good store has plenty of shelves, hooks, crates, and more that they move around from time to time. You can use this same system in your garage to organize and store the things you need. This idea is great if you often buy new tools or recreational equipment.

Consider Your Space

It’s very important that you think about safety as you organize. It’s best that you keep as much off the garage floor as possible. Be sure all shelving is firmly attached to the wall and all items are away from any heat sources in the garage.

If you need more help organizing your garage, Garage Door Repair Services of New Haven is here to help you in any way you need. It is important that your garage is a safe place for you and your loved one. We want to help make that happen for you.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
