Garage Door Security Tips

 In Garage Door Services, Residential Garage Doors

Lawrenceville GA New Garage DoorsGarage 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.

Does your garage have weak points? Don’t let your garage doors make you susceptible to break-ins. Keep your property safe with a top-quality garage door. We offer the highest-grade custom and branded doors available. Call HABPRO Garage Doors for a garage door evaluation today.

K S.
Saved a ton of money getting a lot more life out of a door that was not constructed correctly so it split and started folding ! This was a nightmare being that it is one panel for a double garage yet I got the door fixed and now will get many more years out of our door and it was done all by the end of the week I called. I will definitely be using Habpro again in the future, if we even will need to get another replacement ever.

Thank you!
Greg R.
Fast quick and in a hurry
I found out at 3 pm on a Friday that our garage door wouldn’t open. They came out that evening and got it back working. Replaced both springs and greased it up and it’s back like new. I highly recommend them and the only ones I will use.
Bobbie A.
The top of the warehouse dock door fell off the rollers and the cable broke. I called Bill at Habpro and he gave me the best price and next business day service. The techs that came out to repair the dock door were professional and and they did a great job.
Hayden B.
Bill was such a blessing to us today! He was able to work us in for a quick service call to repair a broken spring on our door. He was upfront about pricing, arrived on time, was so knowledgeable and efficient and just generally pleasant to work with. Turned a frustrating situation into a great experience!
Teresa C.
Habpro was a pleasure to work with! Very fairly priced...The team was efficient, arrived when scheduled and left my driveway and garage spotless! Couldn’t have asked for better customer service!
Daniel B.
Fantastic service and premium quality product. Bill gave me competitive prices on two insulated metal doors and programmable openers, scheduled the installation at a convenient time for me, and Chuck who did the installation show up right on time. After he thoroughly cleaned up, he stayed and helped sync both vehicles to the openers. I highly recommend Habpro. You won't be disappointed.

Our Clients Reviews
Choosing Habpro Garage for my carport enclosure was an excellent decision. The project was executed flawlessly. The owner Bill is professional, thorough, and a consistent communicator.
My project was not a standard install, but Bill did not hesitate to accept the job. He reviewed the scope, quote job at a great price & timeline, and completed the project on time as quoted.
Habpro Garage is the best choice for garage door projects.
Jason P.
Superb service. Chuck was very professional and efficient. He knows inside out about garage systems. Did a great job with fixing and installation. Highly recommend.
Pavan K.
Since the first day I met Bill, he was very professional and helpful. I needed to replace broken spring on my garage door. I am mechanically inclined and encourage me to do it myself, so I did! His three part video walked me through how to do it and offer help when I needed it. He helped me pick out the right springs and even met up with me after a service call he was making. Thanks a lot Bill.
Allen S.
Chuck was our installer and he did an incredible job! Not only was he genuinely nice, he was fast and thorough! I highly recommend them if you want it done right.
Dream B.
Within 30 minutes of requesting contact about a broken spring, I received a call from Bill. He made arrangements to come to my house a few hours later and arrived at promised time. Bill completed the job and performed a few tweaks to make my door run better. I appreciate the service!
Bridget G.
Great experience. Details were gone over to make sure everything was communicated well and prompt service. New garage doors look great!
Chad C.
Very reasonable and great service. Bill and Chuck are top notch professionals! I had a broken spring, preventing me from opening my door and they were there quickly to fix it!
Susy N.
Great service ! Fair prices excellent communication
Jennifer A.
Excellent Garage Doors and Customer Service! Bill came out and installed 2 new garage doors and openers (exactly what we ordered) for our new house. Very affordable, trustworthy, efficient and most important on time. I can't say enough about Habpro and the wonderful experience we had. Thanks Bill!
Margaret K.
Great service. A torsion spring on my garage broke. So the door no longer opened or closed. One phone call and Bill was able to get out to my house the same day. Within 30 -60 minutes, he not only had the new parts installed, but also inspected and confirmed that other parts of the garage mechanisms were all in excellent condition as well.

I had him replace the older torsion spring that wasn't broke as well. So I'd have 2 new ones instead of 1 old and one new. Made much more sense to do this longevity wise.

Great service, quick and quality driven.

Really fair price.

Highly recommend...
Jules R.
Wonderful experience with Habpro!! Chuck came out exactly when he said that he would (giving me a call beforehand) and fixed my garage door springs and installed a new garage door opener. Chuck is extremely personable, knowledgeable, professional, and trustworthy! Thank you so much for your work!
Kathy W.
I had a very good experience using Habpro. They were flexible with scheduling so I could have the work done when I needed it to be done. The installers showed up right on time and got the work done quickly and completely. When it was finished the installer explained to me how it all worked and made sure all of my questions were answered before I left. The price for the opener and installation was very reasonable. I would recommend Habpro to anyone who needs a garage door opener installed.
Ken K.
Dealing with Bill on the phone and his excellent installer Chuck I was impressed by both their knowledge and expedited manner in which they fixed my garage headache. They will make you feel at ease with whatever problem you are having. The price is fair and quality of work and customer satisfaction is off the charts excellent!!! If you are having a problem let them take care of it, they really stand behind their work! Thanks Bill and Chuck!!
Marc E.
I really appreciate Bill getting my garage door replaced so quickly and at a great price! The work was done very well as was clean up. I highly recommend Habpro! Great company!

Quick service, fair prices. Two different houses, two different garage doors -- Bill diagnosed and gave estimates over the phone. He or his employees showed up on time and all were courteous and efficient. I've been VERY pleased with this company.
Susan C.
Excellent customer service! I called Bill yesterday for garage door repair on both bays. He was here today at the appointment time. Garage doors were fixed at an affordable price and working fabulously! Thanks so much Bill.
Kelley R.
Quick service and really fair priced. Spoke with Bill yesterday and his associate arrived today morning and replaced my torsion springs in about an hour. Highly recommend Habpro.
Jason L.
I very seldom write reviews but this company deserves a 5 star review. I have dealt with Bill twice. The first time I bought a part from him since I used to work in the garage door industry and have experience. The second time was today. I had a very weird problem that I couldn't get to go away so I called and got Bill again. I told him my problem and he asked me a couple questions and determined what was wrong and told me over the phone what to do. I thanked him and told him I was glad there are still some honest people out there. Bill is a nice guy, very knowledgeable, and if you are looking for a honest company that does great work and has ethics call this company. You cannot go wrong with them. I highly recommend them!!
Mike K.
I highly recommended them for all garage door needs. They repaired ours and they were fast, reliable and very reasonably priced.

Had a great experience with Habpro! Technician was prompt, courteous and did a great job replacing our old garage door opener!
Kelly D.
After purchasing my home I noticed my garage was really hot in the summer and my bonus room above my garage was really warm too. A friend suggested I look at replacing my garage door with an insulated garage door. After receiving several quotes, I decided to use Habpro. They were very professional and friendly. I am very happy with their customer service and my new garage door. My garage and bonus room are a lot cooler and more comfortable. I like that Habpro is a family business and will definitely use them again in the future for any garage door needs!
Arona E.
Bill and his crew have done it again! Great repair service in the past, and now seamless install on two new garage doors for our home. A fair price, great service and communication, wonderful product and workmanship, and a thorough cleanup. It really was a fantastic experience start to finish. Will never call anyone else, and if you're in the Atlanta area, you shouldn't either.
Buck A.
If you need a Garage Pro HABPRO is it! They were prompt and answered all my questions eagerly and the work was completed quickly and professionally. Save yourself the time and call HABPRO first!

Best service ever! Nice reliable and on time. quality work too :)
Jan H.
I was in the process of selling my home when my garage door stopped working. Habpro was not only the most affordable but they came out the next day and repaired the garage door. Courteous,friendly, and extremely professional. I cannot recommend them enough! If you want the job done right by experts, at a great price, look no further.
Glen A.
Last week my garage door opener stopped working after a lightning storm, I researched a half dozen different companies and finally decided to use Habpro for my new Liftmaster opener. They had excellent reviews on Kudzu and were very helpful answering all my questions and helping me decide which model to buy.
I would highly recommend giving them a try and I will certainly use them again in the future
Loretta J.
Bill could not have been nicer. The quality of the repair on more door was excellent. There were no hidden costs. He worked with my schedule and was on time. I give him an unqualified recommendation.
Marie B.
Bill came promptly after the door company with the famous name let us down. Fast service, reasonable prices, knew his stuff. We'll use Habpro again!
Robert B.
I broke my top door slat closing the garage on a bike rack, the owner Bill had me take a few pictures on my phone and text it to him. The technician Gary came and fixed the door within 30 minutes. Fantastic job and quality service, I highly recommend Habpro for any garage door repairs, you will not be disappointed and the service is top notch!
Jeremy M.
Woke up this morning only to find a broken garage door spring. Door would not open automatically and it took a lot to get it open manually. I called several companys ( which will remain nameless for ethical reasons) which did not sound professional or very upfront with there prices. I came across Habpro online and I quickly called them. Bill answered the phone and right away I can tell that he was very knowledgeable in the garage door industry. I was tossing with the idea of doing it myself, but with there fair prices, I chose to let them do it. He arrived promptly. Was very professional and got the job done in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Bill and his crew to anyone needing garage door help.
Thank you Habpro.
Your new customer, Tony Orlando, ( inside joke )
Matt S.
Bill Farmer at Habpro Lawrenceville is just awesome! Called him early Monday morning for garage repairs and he was out to the house in no time. Our garage has never worked this good! I highly recommend this company for your garage door repairs.
Greg N.
Bill has been doing commercial door service work for me for the past 18 years. It is a pleasure to make a single phone call and know that the issues with my doors will be solved soon. Bill is professional, courteous, competent, and responsive. If you choose Hapbro to handle your door service and installation you will be glad you did.

Best Garage Door Service Ever!, 1/13/2016

I was in a tight spot because I could not get a car out of my garage because of a broken spring. The tech showed up, quickly diagnosed the problem, and installed 2 springs on my old one spring system. Also fixed the track where a car had backed into it. Took about 25 minutes tops. Great price and I will call them again.
Mark P.
Last week I went to leave my house and my Garage door wouldn't open and I called my neighbor, he came over and saw that my spring broken. He had used Habpro Garage Door in the past so I gave them a call and they were at my home in less than two hours and replaced my springs at a very reasonable cost. They also serviced my entire door, I will definitely call them again the next time I have a garage door problem.
Robert J.
Bill will talk you through minor problems, like an IR sensor that isn't aligned, without even charging for a service call. His service guy is really fast and the price to repair a broken spring is very reasonable. Very satisfied and recommend Habpro to all my friends. My residence is due for new doors soon, and I will use Habpro again.
Dick M.
Very satisfied with the service I received, Bill arrived on time as he said he would and was very quick and efficient in fixing my garage door. He was a huge help, I highly recommend Habpro!

Curt B.

I was in need of a garage door repair company to replace my broken cable. My door was jammed shut, and my car was stuck in my garage.
After an Internet search and calling several companies, I chose Habpro.
They responded the same day, and the final repair bill was within their quote on the phone.
I highly recommend calling them.
Ally C.
Great service, came out right away. Reasonable rates.
Nancy H.
I have used Habpro twice for emergency garage repairs. In each occurance someone was out to my house within hours. This impressed me the most since I had called another company with "24 hour servcie" and never even received a return call. The Habpro workers were friendly and very efficient. The work was completed in no time and the prices were very fair. I will definately use them again.
A.C. R,
Quick and easy! If you need repair or a new door, Habpro is the best!
William M.
