Keeping your Garage Secure this Summer

The summer is one of the greatest times of the year in our opinion – you get to be outside all the time, spend time with friends and family, and spend your days by the swimming pool! Your kids are out of school for the summer which means you can spend your weekends travel to the lake or the beach. While this is all fun, spending so much time away from your house can pique interest for neighborhood burglars. The team at Bob’s Advance Garage Doors is here to help prevent that!

We asked our team for some tips when it comes to keeping your garage and home secure this summer so you can go off and enjoy some fun in the sun. Here’s what they came up with…

6 tips for keeping your garage door secure this summer:


1. Keep it closed

One of the easier things you can do to ensure the safety of your home is making sure to keep your garage door closed at all times. If your garage door faces the street and people walking or driving by see that it’s always open with no one in or around it, that’s an open invitation for trouble. Make it a habit to always keep your garage door closed when you aren’t out there!

2. Choose frosted windows

Not only do frosted garage door windows add value and charm to your home, but they also act as an extra layer of protection. Frosted garage door windows are always recommended by Bob’s Advance Garage Doors because people on the outside can’t see in – they act as privacy windows. 

3. Hide the openers

We aren’t talking about the opener on the actual door unit itself, but the ones you keep in your car. You want to make sure you don’t show yourself as an easy target, so if you leave your openers laying in your unlocked car, you are essentially handing a burglar the keys to your home. 

4. Lock it

If you have multiple access points to your garage that lead into your home, you want to ensure all doors are locked and/or dead-bolted at all times. If you have a side garage door, but you rarely use it, make sure it is locked at all times, but carry a key for it in case of emergency. By locking any doors that lead into your garage, you are making it almost impossible for anyone but you and your family to get inside. 

5. Install lighting

Most garage doors that we install come with a light that automatically turns on when the garage door is being opened. Another great way to secure your garage doors is to install motion censored lighting around your garage, that way if someone were trying to break in, the light turning on would deter them away first. 

6. Install a security system

If you’re planning on going on a vacation, or you spend your weekends at your camp, installing a security system is one of the best ways to secure your garage. Simply give Bob’s Advance Garage Doors a call and we will come to install your new security system for you!

  • How Often Should I Perform a Garage Door Tune Up?

    Your garage door is probably the largest moving hardware in your home. This door has components that are working hard numerous times a day just to provide you with egress and ingress into your garage. 

  • How to Clean Your Garage Door

    Over time, the garage door accumulates a fair amount of dirt on its surface due to weather, sun exposure, and regular use. However, most homeowners give special care to windows, patios, and other exterior areas while neglecting the garage door which is seemingly one of the most used building components.

  • Risk of Broken Garage Doors

    The garage door provides a lot of utility and makes life easier. They protect one of our most pricey investments as well as add beauty to our homes. Unfortunately, some homeowners neglect the garage door until they damage or stop functioning.

  • How to Pick the Right Garage Door for Your Home?

    Whether you are looking to install your first garage door or upgrade from your old one, we want to first congratulate you then remind you that shopping for a new garage door asks for some due diligence.
