Bolster the security of your garage


As you most likely store a number of expensive items in your garage, it’s important to routinely evaluate your outbuildings’ security measures – as well as wanting to protect your possessions from the risk of theft, we also assume that you aren’t too keen on paying to repair the damage caused by a break-in.

Keeping this in mind, ask yourself the following: are you content with how secure your garage currently is?

If your answer to the above question is a resounding ‘no’ then listen up – today we’re outlining some simple ways of bolstering its safety:

Keep the windows shut

This one may sound particularly obvious, but in truth, you’d be surprised how many burglaries occur as a result of people not closing their windows. Everyone here at Bradford Garage Doors therefore strongly recommends that you remember to shut them whenever you aren’t nearby – opportunists have the chance to pounce when you’re out of sight.

Use more locks

Purchasing an extra lock or two can dramatically enhance the security of your garage. We do, however, advise you to call in the professionals if you’re unaware of how to do this – accidents may occur otherwise. You could also cause damage to existing fittings.

Replace your door

Believe it or not, all garage doors have a lifespan – each varies from model to model. While we can provide repairs on any damage, if a model is approaching old age then it’s often best to find a replacement rather than try and patch things up.

Should you be interested or in need of a replacement garage door, why not get in touch? We have a wide range of Hörmann models available, including up and over, sectional and roller units.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us today by calling 01274 352 303.
