If you have extension springs, make sure you have safety cables as well
Although similar to garage door cables, safety cables serve a different purpose. This type of cable goes through the spring itself, and contains its movement in case it breaks.

So, keep your family safe from injuries or worse, and protect your possessions from any damage and have safety cables installed.

Another reason is to keep yet another type of unwanted guests out - all kinds of animals out there looking for a shelter, especially in winter time. Which brings me to the weather conditions: even the best insulated garage door can’t serve its purpose if you leave it open. So, just don’t.
