Garage Door Safety Month Giveaway and Tips – win a $25 Visa gift card

Garage Door Safety - International Door Association (IDA)

Did you know June is Garage Door Safety month? Well, it is. In honor of Garage Door Safety month, the International Door Association (IDA) has a new video offering homeowners a quick primer about their garage door and tips to keep the door operating safely and efficiently.
