Home invasion is one of the greatest concern for most of the homeowners. Nowadays most of the people install alarm systems at home. To some extent, it is very helpful in finding the thief. But the statistics prove that most of the burglars enter the house through the front or back door. So keep it always locked and secure.
The type of door you use as the front doors is always important. Always make sure that you have the right door. If your front and back doors are hollow, replace it immediately. Make sure that the exterior doors are solid and made from the following materials: 1) Fiberglass 2) Solid wood 3) Solid wood core 4) Metal
If you are planning to install or replace a new door and frame, make sure that the fiberglass door swings outward rather than inward.
At home, all the exterior doors are windowed. Now I am planning to replace it with windowless doors. I have decided to install sliding doors as exterior doors. The main reason for it is to improve the security. Whenever you install a sliding door make sure that the company also provides sliding door replacement service. Always hire a company that provides good customer service so that you could get their help in case of emergency.
Thanks for sharing. Can't agree with you more. A sturdy door must match with a sturdy lock too. And also don't forget to replace the fragile window. Don't know if you guys have 'burglar mesh ' for the windows? I am curious about this.
