Protecting your home or business against unwanted visitors isn’t always easy, but it can be done without drastic and expensive measures by adding security screens to doors and windows which not only protect your home but also serve many other purposes as well. Other forms of home security like CCTV cameras can be great, but they don’t actually prevent or deter someone from entering where they shouldn’t. Doors and windows are your weakest links against intruders, so they are the number one priority when it comes to extra protection.
High-quality security screens and doors will obviously have the most benefit, but high quality doesn’t mean unaffordable. Australian-made screens and doors of unique designs are still an affordable way to protect your home so let’s look at some of their other benefits.
Prevent Easy Access
The most important benefit of security screens and doors is to prevent easy access to the property from burglars. Most common break-ins are opportunistic and so it’s easy and quick access that makes this possible. Security screens will prevent this by taking away the opportunistic element. For a more determined burglar or intruder, high-quality safety screens will make it much harder and much more time-consuming to get in without alerting someone.
Metal screens are easily the most durable and long-lasting. They will also inherently offer greater protection from entry as outlined above. But not only that they will last a lifetime and will only need simple maintenance and cleaning.
Keep Kids and Pets Safely Indoors
Kids and pets have a tendency to wander which is perfectly normal, but knowing that they can’t wander out of the house is very beneficial. This means you can safely leave them in other rooms whilst knowing they can’t go outside unattended.
Increase Your Property Value
Security screens and doors will absolutely increase your property value, especially high-quality ones. Increased house protection is something all real estate agents will factor in when valuing a house.
Keep Insect Out
A huge bonus of security screens is that they allow your windows to be open allowing fresh air to come into the home or business whilst simultaneously keeping out insects and preventing your home from becoming a new home for all sorts of saying and crawling things! Knowing you can open windows and even doors at certain times of the year without being invaded is a huge plus.
It’s easy to see what benefits security screens and doors offer your property so the next step is to find the right ones for your home or business.
