A woman from Allen, Texas called recently, explaining to us just how scary it was to feel insecure in her own home after a break-in. She had been broken into the night before, and wanted to get her garage door fixed where they had done the damage. We explained that we could get her garage door fixed the same day, so that it would be one less thing to worry about.
Six second scare!
We followed right along into the conversation by allowing this woman to know it is truly very easy to break into most home garages now days. What she was unaware of, how just in six seconds someone can force themselves inside without hesitancy at all. All that is needed is a coat hanger and a little bit of practice and YouTube videos unfortunately. In reality, statistics show how just on one YouTube video, there were over one million views. She was astonished to think that some of these viewers could essentially live on a street near you.
What YOU can do to avoid this…
After the conversation calmed down some, we went into specifics to see what we could come up with and brainstorm some ideas together about what her door needs and wants are so we can avoid another future break-in. She had a 16×7 insulated door with window inserts. After finding that out, she went on about how she definitely wants to avoid glass at all cost from now on, no exceptions.

Different problems; different prices!
She informed me about the discomfort she had about cost so we let her know that the cost to repair a door depends largely on the problem and the type of door. So in some cases, such as debris in the tracks, are fairly inexpensive fixes, while broke panels with window inserts or faulty cables can cost a lot more. I had also informed her that usually, insulated steel doors need to be completely replaced if damaged and since she also had windows; glass repair is likely to involve replacing the complete panel and is worth at least an hour’s labor.
