The incidence of car theft is sadly going up in the United Kingdom and now people need to take additional steps to protect their vehicles. Many garages that have never been used for the purpose of protecting the car are now being utilised again, but many garage owners are finding that their old garage door is no longer fit for purpose. Thankfully, garage door technology has come on leaps and bounds and there are now so many different kinds of garage doors to choose from in many colours and materials.
If you are considering installing a new garage door in Kingston upon Thames, then here are a few of the different kinds of garage doors that are currently available for you to buy.
- The standard up and over garage door is still available, but with many improvements. It is now much stronger, yet lighter and it comes with additional springs that allow you to open and close the door very easily.
- Garage doors can now be motorised which means by the simple push of a button, you don’t have to physically open and close your garage door when you want to go in or out. You can simply press the remote control from within your car.
- You can also get garage doors with sensors and these can be placed on your driveway so that when you pass, the garage door by itself and you simply just drive into the open garage and the door will close itself behind you.
Starting to use your garage again will allow you to save money because insurance companies now will give you a reduced premium if you lock your car in there at night.
