Prevent Garage Break-Ins With These 6 Tips!

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Tue, Jul 28, 2015 @ 11:09 AM

Did you know an experienced burglar can break into your garage in as little as 6 seconds with nothing more than a coat hanger? Additionally, the garage is among the most frequently broken into areas of a home. Find out how you can prevent garage break-ins with our tips!

6 Tips To Prevent Garage Break-Ins: 

1. The first (and maybe most obvious) tip to prevent garage break-ins is to not leave your garage door open! This is basically inviting burglars in. No matter how safe you think your neighborhood is, do NOT leave your garage door open. "Safe" neighborhoods are typically the first place criminals look for their next burglary.

2. Consider frosting or covering your garage door windows to keep thieves from looking in. Sometimes, they will first look through the windows of a garage door to see if your car is there, thus indicating them if someone is home.

3. If you're going out of town, padlock the throw latch on your garage door to keep burglars from easily opening it.1452217063_f2135b29bf_m

4. Do NOT leave the garage door remote in your vehicle (most people are guilty of this)! If a thief breaks into your car, he now has a way into your home.

5. Instead of using a garage door remote that clips to your visor, consider purchasing a keychain remote that you can leave on your keys. That way, you aren't tempted to leave your remote in your car.

6. Put a deadbolt on the door between your house and garage. Most people leave this door unlocked for easy entrance into your home. Unfortunately, this also allows for easy entrance for a burglar breaking in.

Ensure the safety of your home and prevent garage break-ins with those easy tips! Just a few of them can make all the difference. For all your garage door needs, remember Overhead Door, where your safety and satisfaction are our priorities!

How To Know When To Replace Your Garage Door

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Tue, Jul 14, 2015 @ 12:21 PM

Garages are often the largest entrance to your home, one most people use everyday for years. Other than just wanting an upgrade, or just a new look for your home, how do you know when to replace your garage door? To ensure the safety of anyone who uses your door, it is important to recognize these critical signs that it may be necessary to replace your garage door.


Signs That You Should Replace Your Garage Door:

1. Shaking Doors-If you fear an earthquake every time you open your garage door, it may be a sign that it should be replaced. A shaking garage door could mean that parts are loose and could result in a collapse...and even serious injury.

2. Noise-If you hear any unfamiliar noises coming from your door as you open/close it, chances are, you should give our service team a call. The parts may just need to be oiled, but a noisy door is also a sign your garage door needs replacement.

3. Crooked Door-If your door does not close straight, give us a call right away. A part has probably busted or come loose. The misalignment of your door is a sign that it is about to collapse.

4. Wires/Cords-There should not be any wires or cords hanging from any part of your garage door system. Exposed wires or cords can lead to bigger (more expensive) problems down the road, so give us a call before it's too late!

At Overhead Door, your safety and satisfaction are our priorities. If your garage door is displaying any of the above signs, give us a call for an entirely FREE estimate to see if you should replace your garage door. Or, if it's time for a new look, try out our visualization tool to give you an idea of what your new door will look like!
