There are three reasons why a homeowner should consider door replacement services: to enhance your home’s security; to improve insulation; or to boost curb appeal.
The security of your home is a top consideration in terms of ensuring the safety of your loved ones and valuables. Considering that doors are the primary point of access for burglars, getting a replacement door can help stop potential burglars from invading your home in the following ways:
- Deterrence – this is the first line of defence. A strong and sturdy door and frame, good locks, translucent glass panes, and good security practices reduce the threat of burglary
- Detection – if the burglar is unable to access your home through the entry door, they may be forced to try other options that raise alarm. For instance, breaking a window or smashing through the door will alert the public and neighbours.
- Delay – whether the burglar is trying to pick a lock or smash a door, the longer it takes to gain access, the higher the chances of them getting caught. This may cause them to abandon and escape without gaining access to your residence.
