As a homeowner, you are responsible for maintaining and keeping your house in good living condition. It can be hard work, especially if your house is old and poorly built, but another part of the home that often requires attention is the garage. There are a number of common problems with garages which I will highlight here as well as offer the solutions.
- Excess clutter. This is extremely common among homeowners and usually happens when the garage is used as a place for items you don’t use regularly but don’t know where to put. It is possible for the garage to be organised if you utilise the space correctly. Try overhead storage racks, and make the most of the garage walls rather than piling things up. It may also be time to declutter!
- A worn out, outdated or damaged garage door. Garage technology has come a long way in the past few years so now is a great time to update. You may not be aware that your garage door has a lifespan. If it has springs, they will have a maximum number of cycles they can go through, so if you start to experience problems with opening and shutting (which is a safety hazard), it is probably time for a change.

- Poor garage lighting is another common garage problem yet it is simple and not at all costly to fix. By installing a LED garage lighting fixture you’ll be able to see everything in your garage without using more energy.
Hopefully these tips will help you with your garage problems, and make the most of the extra space next to your home.
