Security Exterior Doors - Family Insurance, Peace of Mind
December 30, 2009
They say necessity is the mother of invention - so the fact that security exterior doors are a necessity is a sad commentary. But the fact that technology, innovation and old-fashioned strength can be combined to make a nearly indestructible and impenetrable security exterior door says something for the manufacturers that stepped up to the plate.
Security exterior doors are not necessarily an indicator of dangerous locations, they're an insurance policy. Just like any insurance policy for the home it means it's there if the unexpected and unthinkable should happen. That's why you have to assume the worst when choosing a security door. Play devil's advocate and lay out every 'what if' scenario. Being prepared and using all security on a regular basis and on every door is going to be your best defense.
In fact, speaking of insurance, using a security exterior door in conjunction with other security measures could lower your insurance premiums. Ask your agent what measures and upgrades qualify for deductions for your homeowner's policy.
Investing in the security of your home, family or even your business is money that will never go to waste. But besides the insurance factor, it's going to add value to the home. Choosing security exterior doors that can add to curb appeal besides the safety factor is going to give you the most bang for your buck.
Security doors don't need to be a trade off for aesthetics. Invest in quality security exterior doors for your home, for your family and for your peace of mind.
