Usually during a storm the power goes out. When the power goes out, so do many other things. In this case it is your garage door what goes out of service.
There are some garage doors that come equipped so you will be prepared in cases of a black out.
New garage doors are equipped with a battery back up system that will allow you to open or close your garage door regardless if energy is available.
For more information about what your garage could offer you, contact the General Garage Door Service, Inc. at 1-800-429-3832.
