It’s important to make your home something original and personal when you’re working on a remodeling project. But, it’s also vital to keep security measures in mind.

If you’re remodeling your home, you’re probably concerned with design and decor.  That’s understandable!  It’s important to make your home something original and personal when you’re working on a remodeling project.  But, it’s also vital to keep security measures in mind.  Now is the perfect opportunity to fix those security hazards you’ve been meaning to address.  So, here’s how you can keep security in mind when you’re remodeling your home!


Install an Alarm

 

This one should be your primary objective when it comes to security.  Living without an alarm isn’t safe, and it leaves you vulnerable to all sorts of crime.  Anyone can be a target, and crime can occur at any time, in any neighborhood.  To keep yourself safe, it’s important to install an alarm system, which is best completed when a home is being built or renovated.  Wireless alarms are also available, but any alarm is better than none at all.

 

A Mail Slot

 

If you aren’t home for a week, mail can pile up.  This is a sure sign that you aren’t home, which makes you a target for burglary and theft.  A mail slot is the perfect solution to this problem.  There’s no visual of your mail, which means criminals can’t tell if you’re not home.  They won’t be able to see mail gathering in a box, so it’ll deter them.

 

Get a Better Front Door

 

Do you have a window on your front door?  That’s a security sin–windows make it easy for the criminal to break in, as it provides access to the lock once broken.  If the door is very close to a window, it would be easy to break that window in order to reach in and unlock the door.  You should also consider security hinges, a deadbolt lock, and perhaps a storm door to keep burglars at bay.
