Whether you live in a rough neighbourhood or one of the safest in Australia, you can never be too careful when it comes to protecting your home and family from intruders. Security doors have long been used as a method to stop those unwanted guests from coming in, but in the past security, doors were often made out of huge, heavy iron bars that made your home look more like a prison than a house. Luckily, those days are long gone, with modern security doors fitting any style or design of home you have. Here are three reasons you should consider security doors no matter where you live.
1. Dual Purpose
Security doors are built to withstand heavy attacks, from both knives and blunt force barrages, but that is not all they can be good at. Most security doors look similar to flyscreens, and some security door manufacturers have taken advantage of this and made them into fully-fledged insect blockers in addition to their security features. If you hate letting bugs and flies into your home, but still want the breeze to come through then you cannot go past security doors. They give you the peace of mind to leave your front or back door open on those magical summer afternoons.
2. Help With Insurance
The level of security precautions you take to defend your property can have an impact on your overall home insurance, especially if you live in an area that is more prone to burglaries and thefts. Security doors can therefore pay for themselves in just a few short months, by reducing your premium. That is before it ever stops someone from breaking into your home and doing a lot of damage, not to mention stealing your valuables. Every home should budget for security measures, and there is nothing more obvious and good at what it does in this area than security doors.
3. Choose Your Design
Security doors can be customised so that they blend in with the design of your home more readily. This is particularly helpful for families who have spent a great deal of time and pout a lot of thought into the facade of their home. Whether that is the colour, tone, surrounding adornments or whatever else, security doors can be given the essence of your home so that it fits in better. Always make sure you talk to a contractor before you decide whether or not to go in that direction. Some may offer it and you won't ever know if you don't ask.
