An unprotected garage makes households more vulnerable to invasion and burglary. These garage door upgrades can help improve security in your garage:
· Durable Steel Doors: Steel garage doors are a top choice for homeowners who prioritize security. These highly durable doors resist damage better than those made from wood or composite. Homeowners can also install steel doors rated to resist fire for over an hour. Steel doors from manufacturers like Overhead Door Company are always the best choice for security.
· High-Security Garage Openers: Many thieves take advantage of hacked radio signals to open garage doors, so invest in a high-quality garage door opener to prevent such a scenario. Systems like the Overhead Door Company’s CodeDodger® 2 Access Security System regularly cycle through billions of codes. This variability prevents signal piracy and deters attempts at theft.
· Household Access Deadbolts: For the maximum home security, avoid leaving any household access door unprotected—including the door between your garage and your home. Installing a simple deadbolt can help deter break-ins by slowing down potential thieves. This extra layer of defense ensures that your home remains protected even if your garage door is compromised.
· Keychain Remotes: Garage door openers represent a threat to your home’s security, as these small remotes can easily be misplaced or stolen. Fortunately, a quality garage door manufacturer will offer keychain openers, which can help you ensure that your garage door access remote is always in your hands. These convenient openers are compatible with rolling code access systems for the ultimate in security.
