Garage Door Security Tips

garage door security tips

Garage doors are an easy entry point for would-be burglars. Studies show that it only takes a few seconds for a skilled thief to get your garage door open. Even if you have an automatic garage door opening system, there are several ways thieves can access a garage and your home. Power tools, equipment, cars, lawn mowers, recreational vehicles and bicycles have good resell value and are therefore of interest to someone looking for things to steal.

There are a number of important ways you can help deter criminals by securing your garage doors and access to them. They are:

  1. Consider a solid garage door, one with windows that are high, or keep the windows covered.
  2. Install a motion sensor light at the garage door.
  3. Install a security system.
  4. Make sure the garage door has a secure locking mechanism, such as a padlock or deadbolt.
  5. Never leave your garage remote in the car.
  6. Ensure the service door near your garage is also equipped with a deadbolt.
  7. If you have an attached garage, lock all the interior doors that give access to your home.
  8. If you have an older garage door, consider replacing the motor to one with up-to-date security features and open-door alerts.
  9. Add a peep hole so that you can see out in the event of a noise or disturbance while you are inside.
  10. Employ a zip tie to keep crooks from using a coat hanger to reach the emergency release handle.
  11. Install a loud alarm that senses motion or movement.
  12. Keep a radio or television on when you are not home.

Spring break! Not the fun vacation kind, but was in need of a garage door spring replacement. Bill and his team at Habpro provided outstanding service and communication when we needed it! Also a shout-out to Jared for his installation work...you know you're going to get quality work from a Jared...definitely don't settle for Jerrys or Joshes or Jerrods. Thank you Habpro for getting our garage doors back in business.

Bill responded with in 30 minutes of me asking him to see if he could fix a sagging overlayed 16x7 garage door. 6 other garage door companies all said I need a new overlay door. Approximately $6 thousand dollars. Bill look at photos I sent him and had one of his guys Chuck there the next morning. Fixed the door for less than 3% of what the other guys wanted. He’ll get my business when I need that new door. Honest and great people! No joke!!

Bill and his team were professional and on time. Bill took the time (answered my call on Easter!) to explain the process and price before coming out. Garage door is working again and we are so appreciative!

When my garage door stopped working, I called Habpro. After asking me a few questions, the company representative suggested that I might be able to fix the problem myself. He then patiently walked me through the process of adjusting the garage door sensors. Despite my insistence on paying him for his time, knowledge, and patience, he refused any compensation. I have received services from many companies; this was the first time compensation was not expected. My garage door is working properly and my faith in the kindness of people is just a bit stronger.
