Is your garage secure?

Many homes have garages which are either attached to the house or stand alone. Garages always used to be the place where people parked their vehicles, but with many of us using a vehicles daily, a garage often becomes a place to store other items and the car gets parked on the drive. You may have some valuable items in your garage such as gym equipment, tools or gardening equipment such as mowers or strimmer. It is important that your garage is secure so that you can try and protect your property as much as possible. It may even be that you have access from your garage straight in to your house. If this is the case then it is even more important to ensure that the garage is secure as it could potentially be an access point for criminals wanting to enter your home.

Making sure that your garage is secure is relatively straight forward. It is always worth investing in some good quality garage doors, internal and external. If you have windows in your garage you may want to reinforce them with bars. CCTV systems installed above your garage in easy view will also act as a deterrent.
