Tips For Fortifying Your Home Against Break-ins
It would help if you took the necessary precautions to ensure your home and its contents are secure against theft and potential damage. This is good advice, regardless of where you live, and there are several self-help steps that we encourage you to take. There are countless proactive steps you can adopt. While some might seem straightforward, others offer nuanced protection, bridging the gap between a vulnerable and fortified home. We recommend that you:
Ensure that all windows in exterior doors, like your front door, are at minimum forty inches apart from any locks and letterboxes.
Security locks installed on your windows are locked securely when possible.
Lock your tools, ladders, and lawnmowers away from prying eyes.
Think about getting a dog. This is an added security factor. Dogs are an outstanding intruder alarm and deterrent to would-be thieves.
Keep your home lights on while on holiday or away from home for extended periods. You can set up strategic lighting points throughout your home.
Lock personal items of sentimental and financial value in a safe. Safes can be situated inside a cupboard, floor or wardrobe for extra peace of mind in the unfortunate event of a burglary.
