Better Home Security: The Doors of Opportunity

Posted on November 9, 2016 by securityscreenmasters">securityscreenmasters

Even if you are used to entering your home through the garage, your house still has a front door. While you may see an ordinary door, think about what burglars see. The answer is often a opportunity for an easy break-in. An estimated 60 percent of burglars used forced entry to gain access to a home, and 33 percent of the time, this is through the front door. Unfortunately, many doors are highly vulnerable to forcible entry.

At Security Screen Masters, we offer burglar-proof screen doors that are as functional as they are appealing to the eye. These doors are made with a high-grade, rust-proof stainless steel material that is highly protective against burglars.

Is Your Door Vulnerable?

The doors that are easiest for burglars to break through are hollow doors or older wood doors that are lightweight and flimsy. Burglars can easily kick through this door type and force their way into your home. Although the idea of investing in a replacement door may sound unappealing, consider this: The average financial loss from a burglary is $2,185, according to the FBI.

Sadly, only 13 percent of burglars are even caught due to lack of witnesses and the fact that the stolen property is often quickly sold. Also, household members are home for an estimated 28 percent of burglaries. Burglaries have more than just a financial effect on a family, but also mental ones as well. The peace of mind and long-term protection of having secure entryways makes much more financial sense than saving a few dollars on a cheap door.

Protecting Yourself and Your Family

To protect your home from burglary, make your door the safest possible. Installing a new, solid door will reinforce the door to keep a burglar from breaking in. In addition, we can also install security screens for doors and windows to keep burglars from breaking in. These doors are not flimsy like traditional screens available at most home improvement stores. In fact, they are so impact-resistant, they have been tested against category 4 hurricanes. The screens and frames are available in custom colors and designs, if desired.

Custom designs are available for French doors, double doors, and more. They are made in the USA right here at the Security Screen Masters Factory in Tucson. This unique blend of home security and eye-catching appeal make Security Screen Masters’ burglar-proof screen doors and windows a must-have.
