Residential garage doors have one or two types of springs – torsion or extension. Heavy-duty torsion springs are mounted around a metal rod that runs parallel to the door.

One of the main areas of the house that people should pay attention to is the front of the home. The façade, the lawn and the front structures are what the neighbors will be looking at when they pass by your place.
A functional piece that is usually installed on the entry doors of old houses is the door knocker. For many years, door knockers have been used as notification devices to alert people that someone is waiting in the front door. When the electronic doorbells were introduced, the use of door knockers has deteriorated.
Today, door knockers are coming back and they are not only functional but they also add style to the façade of the house.
