Garage doors needs to be highly secure to prevent burglaries and vandalism. By buying a new garage door, you’re already half way there – a new door gives you far better security than an old one, where there are gaps in the frame and the door itself might be weakening after years of being battered by wind and rain.
Some doors are more secure than others. Indeed, some have been approved by police as the most secure kinds of door you can get, so if security is your main concern, look out for these. Make sure that the locks on the garage door are to British Standards and the fit of the door into the frame is perfect, so as not to leave gaps that could make you vulnerable to break ins. You can also alarm your door or your garage if you want additional security; there are various types of alarm on the market.
