WHY RESIDENTIAL GARAGE DOORS
A residential security door eliminates the easiest entry point on your home, meaning that thieves will have to work that harder to get in. Robbery is a crime of opportunity and thieves will likely move on to easier targets when confronted with such an obstacle. In fact, since professional thieves are apt to case a job beforehand, just the site of the heavy duty doors may be enough to keep them from even trying. A smart crook would have to expect a house with excellent external security to also have a top quality alarm and probably safe. This makes the job look like more and more work, hence, less and less appealing.
HIGH LEVELS OF SECURITY
Security doors offer the best protection when used for all of your exterior doors. It is not worth just protecting the front when a prowler can easily walk around to the back door. In fact, many break-ins happen at back doors since they tend to be out of view from neighbors. This gives thieves plenty of privacy to kick away. The major improvement of a security door is the heavily constructed casing that surrounds it. The door itself is strong, but when it is locked to the casing it becomes a solid part of the house. A thief would be better off trying to kick through a wall then getting through the door.
It is also an excellent idea to install one residential security door inside your house to create a safe room for your family in case of threats. A large walk-in closet makes a good choice. Besides, the door will blend right into the decor and you will never notice it unless one day you need its protection. Then you will be glad you made the right choice for the safety of your family.
REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE
All garage doors require regular maintenance to ensure safe and efficient operation. Without the right maintenance, parts may wear out quickly if they are not made up of durable materials. Even if parts are expensive, the time or cost in replacing them may cost you more during the lifetime of the door. Look for roller garage doors that use pressed steel castellated drum wheels or engineering grade plastic. Use a combination of precision springing and pressed steel drum giving a harmonious balance to the roller mechanism.
By carefully researching your new garage roller door, you should get the right door for your requirements. So look for doors that meet or exceed given standards, are quiet (especially it is for a residential situation), have durable components and will be value for money over the entire lifetime of the door.
