How to make your garage more secure

The security of concrete garages is more important than ever. The modern garage contains much more valuable items than they used to because as the purpose of the garage is evolving so too are its contents. The role our garage plays is becoming much more important as more homeowners are looking to capitalise on the extra square door they provide your property.

As garages are being converted into living spaces such as a home cinema, a gym or guest room. As a result of the items inside become increasingly valuable with things like televisions and computers, the need to keep them safe is more important than ever. Here are some tips to help keep your concrete garage secure:

Lock your windows
The windows are one of the most common ways a burglar will break into your garage as they are considerably weaker than the walls or doors. A lot of thieves will check whether a window to any property is unlocked before breaking in. Simply locking them will deter a lot of thieves who will decide not to break in as it heightens the risk of them being caught.

Cover your windows
You can go one step further with this simple trick and cover your windows with a sheet or curtains. This prevents any opportunistic burglars being able to look inside and seeing what valuables are on display. As a result they will be less likely to risk breaking into the garage if they don’t know what is inside

There are many measures you can take to improve the security of your converted garage, from strengthening windows, buying additional locks or installing an alarm system.
