Below we look at some of the things you should do to upgrade the security of a new home.
Fit new locks on the doors
Firstly you may need to replace the locks on every door of your new home. Pay special attention to entry locks at the front and rear of the property. These offer direct access, therefore you need to make sure they are high quality.
It would be an incredibly bad idea to attempt to install locks yourself even though you can buy them at a shop. Even people who are very handy won’t want to risk a mistake, especially if they don’t know how to rectify it. You could damage the door and frame in the process as well as compromise the security of the property. This is why it is a much better option to leave this task to a professional.
Guard the garage
You might have had upgrades on all the doors but what about the garage? This is an incredibly important area to keep secure as it is often extremely easy to get in and out of a house this way. Make sure you fit a decent lock on the inner access door that connects the rest of the house with the garage. If it is a separate building, make sure the main lock is a high quality one so there is little chance of a thief breaking in.
Far too often, people forget that windows can be used to gain entry to a property. As a result they need as much attention as the doors. What you need here is good locks as well as keys. Some solid advice to keep in mind is that you should use these locks when you are not home. It is also a good idea to lock windows at night if a thief could reach them.
