Tips to Prevent Garage Door Break-ins from Overhead Door Tampa

The Tampa overhead door dealer, Overhead Door Tampa, offers tips on how to keep intruders out of your garage. Unauthorized break-ins happen every day, so it pays to be aware.

    TAMPA, FL, March 19, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Tampa overhead door business, Overhead Door Tampa, would like to take a moment to discuss ways you can prevent burglars from breaking into your garage. Such intrusions happen every day and in all areas of the country. No matter where you live or how safe you think you may be, it is simply not worth the risk to be unprepared.

How to Protect Your Family and Your Valuables

The most effective way to prevent an unlawful intrusion is to establish deterrents. One of the cheapest things you can do is purchase a motion sensor that will automatically trigger a light to turn on when someone comes within a certain distance (typically 15 to 20 feet) of the building. This will alert the homeowner and neighbors of activity and thus keep criminals at bay. The commercial overhead doors company also says a security camera (real or fake) is a sound investment for the same reason.

If there have been recently reported break-ins in your neighborhood, consider leaving a light on in your house when you are away or asleep. This will make the burglar think someone is present and awake, and thus more unwilling to take the risk.

According to Bob Briesacher, President of Overhead Door Tampa, "As far as your garage is concerned, we recommend installing a vertical deadbolt on the entry door and equipping an electric opening system. Manual garage doors are too easily compromised."

Overhead Door Tampa sells roll-up doors and also offers repair services to help protect your garage. Feel free to visit them at
