The problem is that windows on garage doors have been associated with safety concerns.  Home owners feel burglars are able to see into their garage or even use windows as an entrance point.  Are windows really a concern?  There are a variety of products and steps you can take to make sure your home is safe when you choose to include windows in your residential garage door replacement.

  • You can choose to use products that are applied directly to the window to hide the inside contents from prying eyes but will still allow light to shine through freely.  These products are films or plastic appliques that come in a variety of styles.
  • Use exterior lights that are motion activated.  Burglars will be deterred from peeking into your garage.
  • If you are concerned that thieves will use the windows as an access point, choose a design with high windows that are too small for a person to fit through.
