How to Reinforce an Entry Door for Under $10

Uploaded on Dec 1, 2011 by Frugal Home DIY


Everyone needs to feel safe and secure in their own home in order to feel free. However, a home feeling secure and actually being secure is very different. After all, it isn’t a coincidence that burglaries happen more to households where no security measures have been taken. By being proactive, developing good habits, and implementing some security measures you can significantly reduce your chances of being burglarized.

So, what is the usual burglary like? The vast majority of home burglaries are committed on weekdays between 1 and 5 pm by men between the ages of 16 and 25 years old. They look for an open door or window, cheap locks, or a house that can be approached without anyone seeing. They may ask themselves; does anybody appear to be home? Is there evidence of an alarm system? Are there any easy points of entry? Are there any valuables I can see to determine if this house is worth the risk? People need to ask themselves these types of questions to determine if their house is at risk. This is done by knowing what catches a burglar’s eye and taking steps to eliminate these “eye catching” events. I wrote an ebook called Home Security Principles that details how to secure your home.
