Turning Your Garage into a Man Cave

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

Got a garage in your home that doesn’t get used? Turn it into a space for relaxing, entertaining and working. A man cave is a great way to make good use of a big space in your home that does nothing but store junk and collect dust. To make your garage a pleasant place to be (especially in winter), there’s a few changes you’ll have to make. ​

Cleaning

Many of us use our garages to store bikes, tools, boxes of old clothes, cleaning supplies, etc. To be able to create a true man cave, you’ll need a blank canvas. That’ll probably involve a lot of clearing and cleaning. Go through everything in your garage and see if you can either get rid of it, find a new spot for it or organise it more neatly. ​

The Floor

Most garages have just the concrete slab as the floor, which is quite cold. Add comfort and ambiance to the room with new flooring. Depending on how far you want to go, you could put down a few rugs or install insulation and floor boards. More affordable options include using carpet remnants, interlocking rubber tiles or floating floor boards that simply clip together. ​

Walls

Depending on how cold it gets, you may need to insulate the walls to ensure comfort in winter. Detached garages will need more insulation as they can’t get any warmth from the heating system inside the house. If your garage is unfinished, you can simply put up the insulation between the wall studs and cover it by installing drywall.

Paint the walls whatever colour you like once installed or decorate it with posters. Then you can go ahead and mount a TV or a basketball hop or a dart board depending on what you want to use the space for. ​

What to Put in There

A man cave is whatever you want it to be. Make it your own. You might enjoy having the garage as a garage in some areas, with a little workshop and tools hanging on the walls or camping gear in the corner. Otherwise, you might want to deck the whole place out like a dive bar, complete with a pool table, wine rack and keg. It’s up to you. ​

Security

If you’re going to keep a big flat screen TV and other valuables in your new man cave, you’ll want to ensure the space is secure. A quality electric garage door is a great solution in terms of security and convenience. This ensures the space can only be accessed from the outside with a code or garage door remote.

How to Select the Perfect Garage Door

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

​If you’re thinking about getting a new roller garage doors or electric garage doors, there’s a lot to consider. Since your garage doors are usually at the front of your home and directly in street view, they can add or detract value from your home, increasing or decreasing curb appeal. Your garage door choice should complement your home’s exterior, while reflecting the lifestyle and personality of your home and family.

Whether you’re replacing an old garage door or are in the process of building a new home, you’ll need to consider factors such as size, climate, insulation properties and door material, to help determine which option is best for you. You want something that suits your budget, is durable, secure, provides convenience and blends into the design of your home.

Materials

​Garage doors can be made of aluminium, steel, fibreglass or wood. Each have their pros and cons. Wood, for example, is beautiful but are prone to damage and require painting and staining every year. When comes to durability, nothing beats steel. However, your steel garage door may require more insulation.

Choosing a Style

​Whether you’re looking for something with natural beauty or a more practical and contemporary design, you can choose from a wide range of styles from high end custom designs to traditional options. At Dominator Christchurch, our wide range of steel sectional doors include minimalist options with classic ribbed profiles in a range of varieties, as well as doors suited to traditional, colonial era homes. You can also choose to add windows.

Colours and Textures

​Design your garage door so that it perfectly suits the architecture of your home by choosing the right style of texture and colour. Dominator garage doors can come in up to 18 different colour styles ranging from creams to blues, greens and dark grey. As pre-painted steel, you can be certain they’ll look great for years to come. You can also choose from a smooth finish or a wood grain texture depending on what works best with your home.

Insulation

Insulation comes as an optional extra for all our electric garage doors at Dominator Christchurch. If your garage is connected to your home, garage door insulation is just as valuable as anywhere else in your home. The thermal properties of insulation are expressed as an R-value, with a higher R-value being better at reducing noise and regulating temperature.

There are two types of insulation for garage doors – polystyrene and foamed-in-place polyurethane. Polystyrene comes in sheets that fit between the front and back panels of the door. Garage doors with polystyrene insulation can be thicker, but tend to have a lower R-value than polyurethane-insulated doors.

Control Your Garage Doors with Your Smartphone

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020
Do you ever leave your house and wonder if you might have accidentally left your garage door open? With a smartphone control kit, you can eliminate that potential problem and always have the peace of mind that your home is secure when you are out and about.

Internet of Things

​Using a smartphone to control your electric garage door is just one example of a string of innovations that allow you to control things around the house using a phone. It started with air conditioners and TVs. These days you can use your phone to brew coffee from your bed or unlock your front gate from the other side of the world. It’s part of the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) where everything increasingly has an on/off switch connected to the internet.

How It Works

​The smart phone control kit created by Dominator is an optional extra on all automatic electric garage doors provided by Dominator. This extra feature works with your automatic garage door opener to grant you remote access to your garage using a custom designed smartphone app.

This app, which can be downloaded on iOS devices, allows you to control your garage door. Unlike traditional garage door remotes, which only work when you are within a certain distance from the garage door, this smartphone app allows you to control your garage door from anywhere in the world so long as you have cellular or WiFi connection.

Benefits of the Smartphone Control Kit

​The smartphone control kit features extended range technology so that you can also operate an entrance gate as well as your garage on your app. The app is intuitive and easy to use, allowing you to:

  • Conveniently open and close your garage door as you enter and leave
  • Monitor your garage door 24/7
  • Receive notifications when anyone uses your door
  • Partially open the door to allow deliveries to be secured when you aren’t home
  • Built in activity log also displays usage history so you can see who has operated your garage door and when

There’s also an option to set up additional alerts to let you know if there has been an obstruction or if there is a need to service your automatic opener.

Why You Should Automate Your Doors

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020
Automation is increasingly becoming a part of our daily lives. While some automated solutions like automatic coffee makers and thermostats could be considered luxuries that aren’t crucial, automated garage doors are different. Automatic garage doors are a sensible option that every homeowner should consider. Below, we look at some of the benefits.

Convenience

​It makes sense to automate your garage door. You don’t have to get out of your car to open or close it which is convenient but also safer as you don’t need to leave children or pets in the car alone or leave your car unprotected. It also means you don’t have to go out in bad weather. The last thing you want to do when it’s pouring rain in the middle of winter is get out and fumble with a key and lock on your garage door to open it.

Security

Garage doors are often another way into your home. This makes garage security as essential as front door security. An automatic garage door opener is a great way of ensuring you family, home and possessions are kept safe when you’re home and when you’re not around. Automatic garage doors can only be can only be accessed from the outside with a code or garage door remote. The automatic opener is geared so that the door cannot be pushed or pulled open from the outside.

Automatic garage doors can also be controlled via a smartphone app, providing you with additional security benefits. You can monitor your garage door 24/7 and receive notifications whenever anyone uses the door. There’s also a built-in activity log that displays usage history so you can see who has operated your garage door and when.

Safety

​Old manual garage doors often require you to lift up a heavy door from the ground. To prevent any potential injuries doing this, you can opt for automatic garage doors which will do the heavy lifting for you. Automatic garage doors are ideal for homes with children, elderly people and those with health conditions that prevent them from manually operating a garage door.

With an automatic garage door, you’ll never have to worry about people getting injured from the doors closing on them as there are in-built sensors. If the garage door comes into contact with an obstruction on its way down, it automatically reverses or stops if it is obstructed on its way back up. An infra-red beam can sense if a child, pet or vehicle, moves under the door while closing and stop and reverse before it makes contact.

Finish Your Home with a Designer Door and Gate

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020
When choosing an electric garage door for your home, security, safety and durability are key considerations. However, you also want something that is unique, aesthetically pleasing and suits the architecture of your home. At Dominator Christchurch, we provide a wide range of options when it comes to customising your garage door and gate, from automation solutions to different choices in colour and style.

Traditional, Modern or Both?

​New Zealand has some beautiful old homesteads built by our 19th-century settlers. These benefit from classic restorations. Meanwhile modern homes often feature interesting roof lines and have a minimalist and practical look. Our range of garage doors allows you to find a perfect match. Styles like the Georgian and Somerset are perfect for traditional, colonial era homes. Meanwhile options like the Futura look great on all types of houses while the Sierra and Nevada look excellent on minimalist, contemporary homes.

Window Panels

​A glass or acrylic panelled garage door can be beautiful and complement the clean-lined geometry of modern architecture. It can also update an older home with contemporary style or turn a bland building into a stylish, contemporary home. During the day, the window panels allow natural light to filter into the garage, making the space more inviting.

At night, when lit from behind, the garage door ‘glows’ from within, creating a beautiful focal point on the home’s exterior. You can customise the transparency of the glazing to control daylight and privacy. You can also utilise tinting or frosting to create effects as well as choosing opaque, coloured, mirrored or even textured panels depending on your desired look.

Colours and Textures

​Dominator garage doors come in a wide variety of colour options, with up to 18 choices ranging from dark blues and greens to light brown, cream and much more. All our garage doors are pre-painted steel so you can be certain they’ll look great for years. When it comes to textures, you can choose a wood grain texture or a smooth finish depending on your preferences and what best suits your home.

Automatic Garage Door and Gate Openers

​Add style, security and convenience to your home with high quality automatic garage door and gate openers. These can be controlled via a remote, keypad entry or through a smartphone app. The app allows you to control your gate and door from anywhere and monitor its use. At Dominator, our openers are suitable for a variety of gate sizes and styles including sliding gates and swing gates.

Our automated gates and garage doors include safety features like infra-red beams that detect anything moving in the path of the gate like children and pets and stops the motion immediately.

Make Your Garage Door Safer for Your Family

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

Your garage door must be not only good looking and reliable, it needs to be tough and secure. At Dominator Christchurch, we understand that security and safety are a key consideration when choosing a garage door or opener. The garage door is the largest moving item in your house and can cause serious injury if it fails.

Garage door systems can vary significantly in the type of safety and security features they offer. Our roller garage doors and electric garage doors use the latest safety and security features to ensure your family and possessions are safeguarded and the risk of an accident is mitigated.

Automatic Reverse Function

Automatic reversing comes as a standard feature on electric garage doors by Dominator. If the garage door comes into contact with an obstruction, it will stop and reverse back up. This function is sensitive so if that obstruction is a person, they will not be injured by the initial contact. The garage door will also automatically stop if it comes into contact with an obstruction on its upward journey.

Infra-Red Safety Beams

​For added safety, an infra-red safety beam can be added to your opener so that if the beam is broken while the door is in use, the garage door will automatically stop and reverse. This prevents any contact with the person or object that broke the beam, eliminating the risk of injury.

Entry Keypads

​Entry keypads allow you to open your garage door using a pin number. This allows people to enter the home without worrying about keeping track of multiple keys. It’s handy for busy households and those with children. Everyone can pop in and out without carrying anything and no one need ever be locked out.

Tricode Technology

Thieves can sometimes access an automatic garage door by sending out varying frequencies until they find one that opens your door. TrioCode uses ‘code hopping’ to generate trillions of garage door rolling codes, creating a new code every time the garage door is operated. This way, only your transmitters will open your door and the transmission can’t be hacked by anyone else trying to gain access.

TrioCode simultaneously transmits on three different frequencies. This prevents jams from other frequencies transmitted by devices like cordless headphones, wireless sound systems, etc. With three frequencies available, even if two frequencies are jammed, the TrioCode transmitter will still operate your door.

Smartphone Control Kit

​The Dominator SmartPhone Control Kit lets you operate and check the status of your garage door from anywhere in the world. You can monitor your garage 24/7 and receive notifications when anyone uses it via a specially designed smartphone app. You’ll never have to worry about whether the garage door was accidentally left open, and you will know each time when the garage door is operated and who is using it.

Improving the Resale Value of Your Home

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

It is often said that the single most important component for the value of a house is the location. To some extent, that’s true; most of the increase in house prices over the last few decades has actually been to do with the value of land. But, if you’re looking to sell your house, there’s nothing much you can do about the location – a house is where it is!

However, there are still many things you can do to improve the resale value of your home. Many other factors are considered when establishing how much a property is worth – things like street appeal, automation, and security. Here are just a few of the reasons why you might want to increase the value of your home, and how you can go about it.

Why Improve the Resale Value of Your Home?

​The most obvious reason you’d improve the resale value of your home is that you’re planning on selling in the future and want to make a bigger profit than you otherwise would. However, that’s not the only benefit that comes from having a better valued home. When the value of your home goes up, so does the amount of equity you have access to. If you do something like install high-quality electric garage doors, not only will you have all the physical benefits it confers, but you may be able to borrow more money from the bank, too.

What Factors Will Increase the Value of a Home?

​Simply put, a house is more valuable when it is more desirable. The more people are willing to pay for a property, the more the owner can expect to make when selling. So, what do people want in a house?

Street Appeal

​When establishing the value of a house, first impressions count! A house with great ‘street appeal’ is one that looks desirable from the outside. Things like a nice garden, pleasant façade, big windows, a pleasant fence, and a high-quality, safe garage door all contribute to street appeal.

Automation

​The latest mod cons are always sure to impress. In today’s terms, that means automation. Things like home security systems, voice activated LED lights, cameras and smart roller garage doors with infra-red safety beams and a cutting-edge garage door remote are all good examples.

Security

​Quite understandably, people want to feel safe in their own homes. If a house looks as though it isn’t secure – with shoddy locks and an easy to break into garage – that will keep the value of the property low. For a house that looks safe, you can’t do better than secure Dominator doors.

Protect Your Car with a Safe Garage Door

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

After your house, your car is probably the most expensive asset you own. Not only is an automobile financially valuable, but so much of our lives depend on driving around. Despite that, many people are appallingly blasé when it comes to protecting their car. They leave it out front of their homes, exposed to the elements and passers-by, or house it in a garage behind a flimsy and outdated roller door.

If you want to protect your car, as well as everything else in your home, it’s vital that your vehicle is protected with secure electric garage doors.

Stay Secure

​You wouldn’t leave your windows wide open or have your front door unlocked at night, so why would you take that sort of chance with your garage door? Old, broken garage doors are a boon for thieves, not to mention that they’re at risk of being battered down by the elements. On the other hand, Dominator doors are tough with thick, quality New Zealand steel and ingenious design. Plus, with auto-lock technology, you’ll be protected from your own forgetfulness, too.

Protect Everything in Your Garage

​Principally, your garage door is for keeping your car safe. However, there are many other things kept in the garage that need protecting, too. From cherished mementoes and precious works of art to storage boxes filled with books and off-season clothes. Don’t risk a break in; cover yourself with high-quality roller garage doors.

Safety for Your Car and Your Family

​An old, faulty garage door is a liability. Not only will it be easier for thieves to break into your home, but vulnerable members of the household are at risk, too. Every year, small children and pets are trapped under garage doors. Don’t let that happen to your loved ones. With a dominator car door, infra-red beams can be outfitted to garage openers. With this technology, if a child, pet, vehicle or obstacle goes under the door while it is closing, the door will automatically stop and reverse without making contact. Additionally, the doors can be fitted with an automatic reverse function so that if they do make contact with an obstruction, movement automatically stops.

Stay Safe Time After Time

​Dominator doors keep you, your car and your family safe, and with a fantastic ten-year total confidence warranty covering garage door repair, you can rest assured that it will stay that way for years to come.

We Have Garage Doors to Suit Harsh Climates

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

Garage doors look sturdy because they’re so large and heavy. But what you may not know is that many garage doors are deceptively fragile. Their motors have tiny moving parts, and a low-quality garage door will break down or rust quickly when exposed to the elements.

Dominator electric garage doors with garage door insulation are different. They’re built to suit harsh climates and are designed specifically to withstand aggressive weather. From torrential rain, to hail, harsh sunlight, strong winds and snow, the Dominator doors are up to the task.

Garage doors need to withstand the weather, whether that is torrential rain, hail, harsh sunlight, strong winds, etc. Find out why you need a Dominator door to protect yourselves.

Why Do You Need A Good Quality Garage Door?

​There are some home furnishings that it’s OK to skimp on. For example, you don’t necessarily need top-of-the-line door handles or a $20,000 door mat to live in a respectable home. However, there are some parts of your abode for which you should never accept a low-quality substitute. Your roof, for example, needs to be in excellent working condition to protect you from harsh weather events. The same goes for the garage door.

Your roller garage doors protect your car – probably your most valuable asset after the home itself – so you should make sure the door can stand up to the elements. Otherwise, your car may as well just be out in the street getting hailed on.

What Makes Dominator Doors Better Than Any Alternative?

​Our doors are made from New Zealand steel, which is superior both practically and aesthetically to other, lesser makes of steel. Dominator doors can stand up to all types of weather, are rust resistant, and offer terrific protection against thieves and intruders.

Why is Street Appeal So Important?

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020
Street appeal is massively important, not just for increasing the value of your home, but for aesthetic pleasantry and general liveability, too. Who doesn’t want to live in a home that looks beautiful? If you’re new to the concept of street appeal, or if you’re looking for some efficient and effective ways of improving the street appeal of your house, read on!

What is Street Appeal?

‘Street appeal’ is a name that designers and real estate agents use to describe the desirability of a home when viewed from the street outside. Many factors contribute to street appeal like the fence, garden, roller garage doors, façade, roofing, and windows. Basically, it’s a combination of all the different visible elements.

How Does Street Appeal Change the Feel of a Home?

​A home with great street appeal feels even better on the inside. Think of it like a meal; if the entrée is fantastic, you’re likely to enjoy the main meal even more so. In the same way, an outstanding street appeal puts one in a positive frame of mind. Additionally, it pre-disposes a person to likening a home even before they step through the front door.

Is Street Appeal Important for The Value of a House?

​A house that has terrific street appeal will almost always sell for more than a comparable abode that looks worse on the outside. Deep down in our human nature, we want to live in beautiful spaces. Since the value of a house is determined by how much people are willing to pay for it, a property with splendid street appeal will raise up the value it can command on the market.

Easy Ways to Improve Street Appeal

​There are many ways to improve the street appeal of a home, but most of them are costly and difficult. Replanting the front garden, for example, or rendering and painting the entire front of the house, are both ways of improving street appeal that might be costly and time consuming. So, what is the best way of raising the street appeal without wasting time and blowing out your bank account? One answer is beautiful new, safe electric garage doors. It makes your house look sleek, secure, and poses a great many practical benefits as well.

Make Every Aspect of Your Home Child-Safe

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020
Our children are so precious to us, and we look after them the best we can. But when we look away – even for just a moment – kids get themselves into all sorts of trouble! That’s why it is so vital to have a child-safe home. It is necessary to take the steps required to remove all possible hazards from an encounter with your accident-prone progeny. Here are some of the main child-safety measures that parents, and guardians, need to take. Plus, a few that you might not even have thought of yet, like roller garage doors.

Be Vigilant Around Swimming Pools

​Kids love swimming and having a pool in your backyard is a great way to encourage exercise and sociability. However, ensuring that your pool is child-safe is an absolute must. Make sure there’s a fence around the pool that it’s clean and safe, that your children have been trained with survival swimming skills, and that they’re supervised at all times.

Beware Strangulation Hazards

​Our homes are full of things that are perfectly safe for adults, but which might wreak havoc on a child. For example, the dangling cords on blinds might be a dangerous strangulation hazard. Similarly, beware when children use headphones that have long cables, especially when they are in bed.

Watch Out for Corners and Sharp Edges

​Furniture, like coffee tables that has sharp edges and corners, can be a pain for adults. When you’re walking around at night, they might collide with your shin, causing you to cry out in distress. How much more vulnerable are our children who are running around with edges and corners at head height. To keep your home child-safe, make sensible and thoughtful furniture choices and consider covering hazardous regions with a foam-type material.

Install a Safe Garage Door

​A bad, old, poorly installed garage door has the potential to be dangerous – they’re large pieces of heavy machinery, and you don’t want any young people getting trapped underneath! That’s why Dominator doors have so many safety options and use such a reliable garage door remote. From automatic stopping technology to infra-red protective sensors, electric garage doors don’t come more child-safe than a Dominator.

What Can Go Wrong with Garage Doors?

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020
Electric garage doors are huge, heavy pieces of machinery that have multiple moving parts and can present real risks. If a garage door is poorly installed, old, or incorrectly maintained, it might be a hazard for yourself, your belongings and your car, not to mention your pets and any young family members. Additionally, if your garage doors aren’t working properly, they won’t work as protection for your precious belongings. Read on to learn about some of the ways garage doors can go wrong, and discover a few of the precautions Dominator have taken to ensure that their products are the safest on the market.

Flimsy Materials, Bad Results

​Some roller garage doors are better than others. Cheap, poorly designed doors are easy for thieves to break into, and don’t protect your home and contents from the elements. If your garage doors can be easily knocked down – or even just lifted up by hand – then they’re purely ornamental and won’t actually provide security.

Sometimes, old garage doors will stop providing protection, because with the passing of the years, you haven’t noticed the extent to which they’ve deteriorated. Don’t get caught out. Make sure you’ve got quality doors on your garage. Dominator doors, for example, use the best New Zealand steel and cutting-edge technology.

Closing When They Shouldn’t

​Do you remember those nasty, ancient elevator doors that seemed as though they were going to close on you and never stop? Mostly, they’ve been removed from public spaces, because they weren’t safe. It should be the same with your garage door at home; if your garage door won’t automatically stop when it encounters an obstruction, it is a safety risk. Same goes for an unreliable garage door remote.

It would be terrible if your big, heavy garage door were to come down on top of you, your pet, your car, or a family member. That’s why Dominator doors are equipped with accident prevention measures to avert disaster.

Safety First

​At Dominator, we can outfit a Garage door with safety precautions to prevent accidents. For example, infra-red beams can be outfitted to garage openers on a dominator door. If anything is under the door when you tell it to shut, it’ll automatically stop without contact. Additionally, an automatic reverse function can be installed so that, if the door does make contact with something, movement stops automatically.
