This video presents a detailed view of the operation of the Breezy Living Garage Screen Door which contains a retractable roll-up passage door.
The passage door allows the homeowner to enter and exit her garage without having to put the entire screen door up like she would have to do for roll-up electric retractable screens.
Breezy works with your existing garage door. Breezy is spring loaded for easy operation, and Breezy works on practically every garage door. Above all, there’s nothing like the Breezy.
Notice how easy it is to operate the screen door and how it stores away out of sight when its not in use. Also, because it stores and operates entirely on the interior of the garage cavity and opening the Breezy Living Garage Screen Door is approved for installation in most communities where the HOA may have banned aluminum sliders and electric retractables which are unsightly and require tracks and frames to be attached to the outside frame of the garage opening.
The Breezy Living Garage Screen Door is also a green product because it uses no electricity or power and 90% of the materials used in its manufacture are recyclable.

Chris Chapman from One Clear Choice Garage Doors appears on Colorado’s Best TV show to discuss the innovative Door Imagination System and how it helped transform a historic firehouse in downtown Denver.
Although One Clear Choice guarantees the best quality, value, and price on the install, repair, and replacement on doors of all brands, we choose Clopay, the only garage door manufacturer with the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
Whether you live in the middle of the country, in a higher elevation or along the coast, chances are your garage door could be exposed to damage from high winds. This could leave your home or business subject to a greater amount of damage in a wind storm.
Garage doors are susceptible to wind damage, and double-wide doors more vulnerable than single doors. The wind may cause the door to buckle, force it out of the roller track, or the track could be vulnerable to the pressure, especially if it is light weight or the fasteners don’t penetrate the wall deep enough. Wind coming into your home or business through an opening this large poses grave problems for the rest of the structure, especially your roof.
The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) offers the following guidelines to help determine if your garage door is at a higher risk of wind damage:
Look for a sticker indicating wind pressure rating suitable for your location.
If there is no sticker, consider three options:
- Install after-market vertical braces that are code approved and available at a local home improvement store.
- Check with the door manufacturer for a kit to strengthen the door and its track so that it has the properties found in new wind-rated doors appropriate for your location.
- Follow the IBHS guidance to perform the retrofits yourself.
- Replace the door with one that is pressure or pressure and impact-rated; see local code requirements.

The Life Protector™ by Mangeney Controls detects and responds to the presence of CO by ventilating the affected area without human interaction. When the Life Protector™ system detects dangerous levels of carbon monoxide gas it responds by opening the garage door to quickly ventilate the area. It simply goes into action when you cannot, quite possibly saving you or your loved ones’ lives.

Tips for homeowners for their garage doors in the sunny, windy, and cold climate of Colorado
By Chris Chapman, One Clear Choice Garage Doors Owner
Here are three garage door problems that are unusual for some areas, but common to the sunny, windy, and cold climate of Colorado, and what to do about them:
1. SUN – Safety eyes can malfunction
In Colorado we have a lot of sun, and not many tall trees to provide shade. This can cause a problem with garage door safety eyes.
Safety eyes are optical safety sensors that tell the garage door when something is blocking it to prevent it from closing on top of something or someone.
If there is too much sun or light interference near your garage door safety eyes, this can prove to be a difficult problem to diagnose because it only happens at certain times of the year at certain times of the day. However, there are some solutions – theoretical as well as proven.
One possible solution is to reverse the safety eyes. Move the transmitting safety eye to the receiving eye position and the receiving eye to the transmitting eye’s old position.
The other solution is to put a safety eye guard around the safety eyes. This provides shade. The guards are sold as a solution to this problem, and the manufacturer claims that it will improve this type of interference, but does not claim that it eliminates the interference from the sun and is therefore not a warrantable fix.
If you suspect an issue with your garage door safety eyes, call One Clear Choice at 303-565-6409 and we will come diagnose the problem.
2. WIND – Uninsulated doors can be blown in
In the windy areas of Colorado, high winds can blow in garage doors. This can be prevented by reinforcing the sections. Uninsulated garage doors should not be installed where high winds are present.
Read more in our post on how to increase the lifetime of your garage door in Castle Rock, where strong winds are a common occurrence.
3. COLD – Garage doors can freeze to the ground
On cold and snowy days, when moisture gets trapped under the garage door, the weather seal may temporarily freeze the door to the ground.
It may seem like your entire garage door is broken when this happens, especially if the opener is working properly. However, adjusting the sensitivity settings should prevent this problem from occurring.
If you need help with any of the above garage door issues, call One Clear Choice at 303-565-6409 and we will be glad to assess the problem!
By far, the most common threat to your home is burglary. According to FBI statistics, a house, apartment or condo is burglarized once every 15 seconds and most burglars enter via the front, back or garage door. SecureShield prevents overhead garage door break-ins.
This patent pending design mounts around the emergency release lever and protects it from outside access. It is easy to install and works with most garage doors. Intruders will no longer have the ability to enter your home, giving you peace-of-mind while keeping your family at home safe.
SecureShield is available now through One Clear Choice. Visit our Products page for pricing information (SecureShield is at the very bottom).
