When children get to the age of 15 ½ , they believe that it is time for them to take on more responsibility. They think they have the right to learn how to drive. If you are a parent then you have been with your child their entire life and only you can decide when you are ready to hand your teenager the keys to a 4,000 pound, 65 mph, possible death machine. Again, totally your choice to give them the keys… don’t do it.

One day when they get their driver’s license, you will be so proud until the day comes when they accidentally drive the car through the garage door. That pride may turn to rage, but you have to look at it as a learning experience.

Your teenager learned the difference between the gas and break peddles and while they think that they are not in trouble because you are such a forgiving and loving parent, you learned not to let your kid drive the car until they are 30. So now, the garage door is busted, it is time to call a garage door repair company.

Having to pick a garage door does not have to be a chore. Here are few things to consider:


  • You can’t have the same garage door that your teenager just drove through— that one was obviously not strong enough
  • You don’t want to buy a really nice garage door just to have it ran through and ruined by your teen for a second time
  • You need a garage door that is teenager proof if you are to ever trust you precious gift from above with the car again

The choice can be no other. You need a Steel Garage Door. They’re made with extremely strong and durable materials to make sure your teenager is stopped when they tap the garage door with the car. Steel garage doors will not crack or warp, as well as provide exceptional insulation regardless of weather conditions.
