Make Sure Your Garage Door Protects You Properly
By now, you know that your garage door can protect you from break-ins and a variety of weather elements. But if your garage door is old, outdated, broken or on it’s last legs, it won’t do a very good job at protecting you and your family. Use these easy tips to make sure your garage door protects you all year long.
Have Your Garage Door Serviced Regularly
What is the current condition of your garage door? Old and in need of repair? If so, it won’t be helpful in providing protection to your home. By making sure your garage door is up-to-date and fully functional, it is in your best interest to have a professional technician service your garage door and opener.
The technician will search for areas in need of repair, and fix them as soon as possible. There is no better way to protect your home than with a fully serviced garage door and opener.
Replace Opener Batteries
When is the last time you replaced the batteries in your garage door opener? If you cannot remember, it’s time to replace them.
You may be wondering what the opener has to do with protecting your family. Many garages are connected to homes and thus should be properly maintained for security.
Change Your Garage Passcode
Many of us use a pass code entry for our garage doors. If you do implement this method of opening your garage door, be sure to choose a complicated passcode. Using 1234 or 0000 as a passcode is too easy, and the two most frequently used codes. Thieves will instantly try those combinations first!
Also, be sure to change your pass code every six months or so as a safety precaution. It is in the best interest of your family to do so.
Ask A Technician About Weather-Proofing
Especially in Murfreesboro, TN, inclement weather can cause significant damage to a home. Ask your professional garage door technician about weather-proofing your garage door so it keeps you and your family safe during an intense storm.
