Whilst decorating your home is the fun part, adding the correct security measures is vital. As burglars strike every 20 seconds, home security should be a top priority.

  1. Secure the Doors

You should inspect all of your exterior doors to ensure the frames are strong, that the hinges are protected and that you cannot unlock the door via the mail slot.

Other things you can install as a quick reinforcement include:

  1. Lock the Windows

Doors and windows are amongst the most popular entry points for burglars. You can improve your window security by installing locks or key-operated levers. Other ways to boost your window security includes reinforced glass with security film, window breaking sensors and window bars.

  1. Add Security Cameras

A great home security solution is a CCTV camera. Not only does it act as a deterrent, but they also act as a means of getting justice by providing evidence in court. We also recommend using a security system that is integrated with a mobile app, meaning you can keep an eye on your home on the go.

  1. Install an Automatic Gate

An automatic gate is a great way of adding extra protection and security for their home and their family. As well as this, they are a convenient and affordable option for home security. Automatic gates allow home owners to control who enters and exits their home. Click here.

  1. Secure Roofing

Having a secure roof especially on garden buildings such as a shed can prevent intruders from damaging the roof to enter the building. Another benefit of a new roof is that it is a cost-effective solution, especially for rubber roofing which can last in excess of 50 years. Find out about roofing types.
