Some people “lock” the door when they go on vacation by unplugging the opener. That’s a good idea, but physically locking the door is even better. An unplugged opener won’t prevent fishing, and—if you have an attached garage—it won’t stop a burglar who has entered through the house from opening the garage door from inside, backing in a van and using the garage as a loading dock for his plunder. Make a burglar’s job more difficult and time-consuming by locking the door itself.
adding the arbor over the garage with hardware on the doors is easy to do in Staging the Outside of a house for sale....I have recommended these kind of additions to many owners, it really helps curb appeal and works to help sell the house.... (and great to do too even if the owner is not moving)
