Choosing the right garage door can improve the appearance of your home, increase security and provide convenient access. Attractive garage doors can make a huge difference, but more importantly they can protect not just your car, but any tools or items you store. A secure garage door is critically important if your garage is connected to your home, as intruders often gain access to your home via the garage if you have an internal door. A garage door made of a durable material often helps to insulate and to prevent damp, draughts and weather damage too. Garage doors are available in a wide range of materials including steel/metal,wood, glass reinforced plastic and ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene). Steel/metal garage doors are extremely durable and maintenance free, cheap in comparison to other materials their biggest advantage is their strength, perfect for security purposes.
Timber garage doors are stylish and very expensive, they also require regular maintenance to prevent rotting but are a strong, naturally insulating material. GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) garage doors are strong and durable, available in many colours and finishes, some of which look like real wood. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene garage doors are the toughest material you can get for garage doors, but are fairly lightweight and still maintenance free. They are an expensive choice but will last a long time and are super tough.
Your garage is part of your home so you should safeguard it against thieves and vandals as part of any home security plan. Your objective should be to make entry to your home as possible for criminals. A great deal of burglars will give up if they find it is going to take a long time to get inside, many will not even attempt entry unless they are presented with an easy option. Criminals look for low risk, high reward jobs, they are not generally looking to defeat high security measures. This is why it is important to get the best possible garage security door and to have it installed by trained professionals and accredited companies.
The security of your garage is just as important as having your windows and doors secure. if your windows and doors have security locks fitted, then a security garage door will deter criminals from using your garage as a way of gaining entry to your home. Investing in a secure garage door may be slightly more expensive initially, but will pay dividends in the long run.
