A garage is used to store a number of valuable items, from expensive power tools and yard equipment to your automobile and sports gear. What’s more, many garages in Lowell and surrounding areas are attached, meaning that a garage doesn’t just store the items within it; it also provides access to your home.
Securing your garage – and your home – is integral to your safety. Did you know that when your garage door is in poor form, though, it can be easier to break into?
Garage doors that are damaged, have weakened areas (very common in wooden doors that have started to decay as a result of age and weather), or that are made from cheap materials are easier to break into than strong, new, and well-maintained doors. In fact, doors that are old and deteriorating may be accessed very easily with few tools.
If your garage door is more than a decade old, or if it has been damaged by weather or another accident, such as backing up your vehicle into the garage, you should check it for any areas of weakness. Signs of weakness that could make your garage vulnerable to a break in include dents, cracks, rotting, and mold damage.
