Prevent Break-Ins with These Garage Door Security Tips

Your garage is an extension of your home. While you probably park at least one vehicle inside your garage, your garage space can be used as much more than just a “parking space.” If you have ever been the victim of a theft, then you know that intruders steal more than just your stuff. They rob you of your sense of security and peace, and it can be extremely difficult to overcome this type of emotional stress.

Protecting your home should be one of your highest priorities. Not only is your house likely to be your most significant investment within your lifetime, but your house is home to loved ones, memories, and everything you have worked hard to acquire. When it comes to protecting your home, it is easy to focus on getting new locks installed or investing in a security system. However, as your garage provides access to your home, it is essential to remember that your garage needs to be reinforced for safety and security as well. Below are tips that will help you protect what is most important to you.

Don’t leave your garage door open. An open garage door may seem like a neighborly way to say “welcome friends,” but it may also be the biggest signal that an unwanted visitor needs to access your home. Most people use their garage door entrance as the primary access to their home. They park their car inside the garage, and they walk through the door inside. If you leave your garage door wide open, an intruder can also have this easy access to your home.

Another thing to consider is that you probably store more than just your car inside your garage. Bikes, tools, toys, lawn equipment, card tables, recreational gear, and golf carts are all common items that many homeowners store in their garages. If you leave your garage door open, you make it very easy for anyone to walk up to your garage space and take what they want. You will most likely be inside behind closed doors, and unless there is a loud noise, an intruder may be able to walk off your property with you at home without you ever knowing.

Keep your garage door remote hidden from plain sight. It is super convenient to keep your garage door remote on your visor because it allows you to easily reach it when you pull down your garage. However, if it is easily accessible to you, it is also easily accessible to an intruder. If you park your vehicle in your driveway, don’t just lock your doors. Make sure your garage door remote is hidden so you don’t tempt an intruder to break into your car and have easy access to your home.

Maintain your garage door’s working parts. As with every other working component in your home, maintenance is necessary for things to run smoothly. Garage doors need to be routinely checked to ensure that all hardware is working properly. Without regular checkups, your garage door may become damaged and suffer extreme wear and tear that will cause you expensive repairs or replacement.

At HABPRO Garage Doors, you can rely on us to ensure that your garage door is working correctly to keep you, your family, and your friends safe. Our expert technicians make your safety our highest priority. Our Trained Professionals will perform a 15-Point Service Checklist, examine all of the moving parts for wear, lubricating them as needed, and make suggestions to prolong the life of your Garage Door and Garage Door Opener.

HABPRO Garage Doors also carries a complete selection of garage door remote controls, transmitters, gear kits, and keypads right on our repair truck so if you need an extra garage door remote or keypad, just ask. A bit of sound advice is to protect the life of your garage door opener and your wallet and install a surge protector on the outlet that your garage door opener is plugged into. A simple $10.00 surge protector can save you an expensive garage door repair.

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.
