A recent article in CREB Real Estate News, brought up some great tips on keeping your garage safe and secure. The story was written following an increase in Calgary's surrounding areas of garage break-ins, which has prompted the RCMP to reach out to residents.
Taking precautions to keep your garage secure is just as important as the rest of your home. Here's a few tips from the article:
Lock it up:
While this seems common sense, ensure all windows and doors to your garage are locked.
Take it with you:
If you're parking your vehicle outside your garage, take your garage door opener with you.
Light your exterior:
Keeping your garage doors lit just makes it easier to keep an eye on things.
If you have windows in your garage, ensure anything of value is kept out of sight.
