However, even if you’re “just” a homeowner, paying attention to door quality can help keep you—and your possessions—safe.
You don’t always have a say in choosing exterior doors, but that doesn’t mean they’re not important.

If you get to choose the doors, make sure you’re informed. If not, it’s time to talk to your property manager about upping security.
3. Your Rental Properties
As a landlord, you need to know how to choose roll up or garage doors that keep your tenants (and your property) safe. If something happens and it’s discovered that the property you rent out wasn’t safeguarded, that could lead to legal trouble.
4. Your Storage Space
Many people depend on self-storage units for their overflow, while traveling extensively or simply if they own property in numerous regions. Even if a storage site has camera surveillance and on-site security guards, you still need to know the doors used are of good quality and regularly maintained. Consider this a part of your check list when shopping around for a storage site.
5. Your Outer Property Buildings
Do you have a barn, storage unit or greenhouse on your property? These regularly overlooked spaces house costly equipment. Make sure the doors provide adequate protection against intrusions.
Keeping up with exterior door maintenance should be regular and comprehensive. Otherwise, who knows what (or who) might make their way inside?
