Orlando, FL (PressExposure) October 09, 2009 -- J.B. Mathews, Florida's premier garage door company, announced the launch of a full-service home protection program for Florida residents. With home invasion and property crime in Florida continuing to outpace the national average, the company is responding to a growing demand for increased home safety measures. J.B. Mathews four-pronged home protection program features a free garage door safety inspection service for qualified homeowners; 24/7 Emergency repair and replacement services; an expanded line of garage door opener solutions and an expanded offering of steel safety doors.
Florida Crime Rate Higher Than National Average
In 2008, Florida reported over 102,000 property crimes, 2.5 per capita, 24% higher than the national average. Nearly 25,000 burglaries were reported last year, 35% higher than the national per capita average. According to local police files, in many burglaries, garage doors are key entry points. Up-to-date openers and secure doors are essential for home safety. "J. B. Mathews Company is partnering with the communities we serve to not only create attractive living environments but to ensure and improve the security and safety of the residents," says Craig Mele, J.B. Mathews chief marketing officer. "Our home protection program is an important step in helping our customers and the community at large prevent home-related crimes and break-ins. We do not sleep. We offer around the clock services so that our customers can rest knowing that their garage doors are always providing that first line of defense."
J.B. Mathews Four-Pronged Home Protection Suite
1) Safety Inspection Team: J.B. Mathews is introducing a garage door safety inspection service, first for Florida residents, then the program will be rolled out to other communities. Qualified residents in the Orlando, Jacksonville and South Florida will be able to schedule appointments for a full-service garage door inspection that will focus on garage door openers and operations, as well as the health and efficacy of the garage doors themselves. Homeowners will receive a safety rating based on a four-star system and those with a four star rating will receive a Garage Door Safety Seal of Approval. All inspections will include recommendations for safeguarding the home. There is no cost to qualified homeowners for the inspection.
2) 24/7 Emergency Services and Preventive Maintenance Program: The J. B. Mathews Service department is set up to respond to virtually any emergency need on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week with factory-trained technicians. Experienced and dedicated service technicians operate fully equipped and stocked service trucks and vans to provide on-the-spot service and repairs for any garage door emergencies. For existing customers, to ensure that doors are maintained in good operating condition, J.B.Mathews' offers a Preventative Maintenance Program. Trained professionals inspect and service doors on a regularly scheduled basis. These on-going Preventative Maintenance Inspections help achieve the longest possible life-span from doors and help prevent unwanted failures.
3) Expanded Line of Garage Door Openers: Garage door openers are the most critical component in assuring home safety. Older systems using outdated technology are prime targets for burglars. J.B. Mathews provides a variety of options in garage door openers, including chain drive, screw drive and the top-of-the-line maintenance free belt drive models, all equipped with photo eyes to help insure the safety of homeowners' families, pets and possessions. The company features the latest generation of garage door openers employing rolling code technology (hopping code) which prevents thieves from cloning or "grabbing" garage door entry codes, by generating millions of different codes every time the remote is used.
4) Expanded Line of Steel Safety Doors: Safety begins with a strong reliable garage door, able to withstand challenges from weather and home invaders. Steel doors provide a strong first defense and attractive style options for safety-focused homeowners. From non-insulated galvanized steel to premium double steel insulated to custom built carriage doors, J.B. Mathews is expanding its line, featuring state-of-the-art doors from the top manufacturers. To meet local building codes, all doors are windload certified.
