Avoid hollow woods for your door
While hollow woods are cheaper, they don’t provide much security because they can be easily kicked in, making it easier for thieves to enter. The best materials to choose for your doors are steel and solid wood. According to our experts, these are sturdy and difficult to break, thus offering better security.
Doors and frames should not have gaps
While it’s important to have quality locks installed in your home, it’s equally important that doors are properly installed, too. Make sure there are no gaps between the frame and door as this could give thieves a chance to pry inside the house and plan an attack. If you see any gaps, have it fixed immediately.
Get in the habit of checking all windows and doors before leaving the house
It should be second nature and part of your routine to think about all locks before leaving. If it isn't, it's time to start drilling it in. Some insurers will claim that cover is voided if you are attacked while one of your locks or windows is left open. Why take the risk? Make sure your window locks are properly locked and in place.
