Who has the keys to your house? More importantly, are keys even required to get into your house? Just how secure is your house?
The openings on your house protect your most valuable assets–your family, your memories, your possessions. Ask any victim of a burglary and they will tell you it deals a devastating blow to your sense of security and peace of mind. In far too many cases we are called upon to repair existing damage on a house. But physical repairs to the structure do not repair the emotional damage inflicted upon your family by a burglary. In this case the saying is true–an ounce of prevention is well worth a pound of cure!
Prevention is your safest bet. We offer free residential security evaluations to help our customers determine the weak links in their physical security. You don’t have to take any action–We can prioritize security risks for you, and you can decide which, if any, of the weaknesses you would like to address. It may not be feasible to make your house impenetrable, but your security can be brought up to a level that will discourage unauthorized entry.
Educate yourself about security weaknesses. Sometimes we find houses with secure hardware that only need to address key control issues. It doesn’t matter how much money you spend on locks if you do not know who has the keys! Some people realize that when they purchase a home they need to re-key the locks to prevent future access by current key holders. This is particularly true for land lords and rent houses.
Most people do not consider how many keys are distributed during new home construction. Even if you purchase a new construction home, most of the contractors and sub-contractors have access to keys during the construction process. Do you know if the keys were all returned, or if any were duplicated during construction?
Re-key your locks when you move into a new house, or anytime you cannot account for all keys. This is the safest and easiest preventative measure you can take.
