For some people, a garage is simply the place where they park their vehicle when it’s not in use. For others, it’s the gateway to their home. When you use your garage as a main entry and exit point, having a door in garage door capability can offer several benefits.
Rundum Meir custom garage doors can be used as a pedestrian doorway, easily opening to a partial width to allow the whole family to come and go as they please. In addition to making this large elevation of your home more functional, the design flexibility offered by our bespoke garage doors can also make this a stylish focal point of your home.
The Convenience of Having A Walk Through Garage Door
One of the primary reasons homeowners enjoy Rundum Meir’s door in garage door functionality is the convenience of it. Whether you’re taking the dog for a walk or your kids are coming and going on bicycles and skateboards, it can become cumbersome continually waiting for the full garage door to open and close.
There is also an increased privacy factor with partial opening, keeping the majority of the contents of your garage less exposed to prying eyes.
For those who want to use their garage as a regular entryway to the home, the easy solution might be to build an extra door in the garage for pedestrian traffic. However, being able to use your side sliding garage door as a pedestrian entrance negates the need for this, freeing up space that could be used for shelves or cabinets.
Better Climate Control
If you have a home office, utility room or other workspace in your garage, it’s likely that you also keep your garage space climate controlled. When the garage door is fully opened, you lose a significant amount of heating and cooling, forcing your air conditioning and heating system to work overtime to get it back to your desired temperature.
When you use Rundum Meir’s door in garage door function, the garage’s climate controlled environment will be no more affected than your home is when opening the front door. This saves energy — which means you save money — while also keeping your garage space more comfortable.
