One of the most important aspects of being a responsible homeowner is ensuring your property’s safety and security. The last think you could want is for someone to break into your house. Your garage door is among the most vulnerable points of entry into your home. So what can you do to keep it secure in the face of a potential intruder? We here at Garage One take pride in the work we do on your garage door. Let our team of trained technicians show you what you can do to increase the safety and security of your garage door.

  1. Install a surveillance system

    Your garage is incredibly vulnerable when it comes to gaining unjustified access to your home. It’s a little ridiculous to think that most people don’t even have their garage door hooked up to their home-security system. Make sure that if someone is trying to enter your home through the garage an alarm will go off and alert the authorities. You should also consider a video surveillance system to monitor the area around your garage door. This will further deter potential intruders to begin with.

  2. Cover your windows

    Keeping your windows covered is a handy trick when it comes to securing your home. It also works remarkably well for your garage. Think about some of the things you keep in your garage: tools, expensive sports equipment and, sometimes, even cars. The contents of your garage are a good indicator for the kind of wealth you and your family possess. Cover the windows of your garage and increase the security of your home.

  3. Never leave your garage door remote in your car

    Cars are very easy to break into. It’s never a good idea to leave access to your home inside the glove compartment of your car. Take your remote inside with you and make sure that you know where your remote is at all times.

  4. Watch your garage door close

    We all know what happens when your garage door hits something on the way down—it comes back up again. Be sure to watch your garage door close fully before you your home.

  5. Make sure your garage door is properly maintained

    Ensuring that your garage door is in good working order could make all the difference. This means making sure the locking mechanisms are working and that the door can’t simply be slid open.
