3 Security Tips to Keep in Mind as Spring Approaches:
It's All about the Door:
It may sound obvious but the most common point of entry for criminals is the front door. Even if your door is locked, a standard soft-wood doorjamb can be easily kicked in. Invest in a deadbolt lock with a heavy duty strike plate. Make sure your mounting screws are at least 3 inches long.
Are you Visible?
The next time you pull into your driveway at night, check to see if your house numbers are clearly visible. Reflective house numbers can help emergency responders find your house quickly.
Mend Your Fences:
Harsh winter conditions can lead to splitting, rotting and rusting. Take the time now to repair broken or weakened areas of your fences make sure that latches and locks are working properly.
