Secure doors are important when it comes to protecting your home. After all, it’s the first way an intruder will try to enter your home. Find out how secure your doors are here. If your doors have the following features then you’re actively reducing your risk of burglary:
1. A Deadbolt Lock
This is a must-have for any front door. However, don’t buy the cheapest one you can get hold of. It’s worth spending more money on a high-quality lock, with a throw bolt that’s at least an inch long.

So, if your door has one of these locks already, check to see if the measurement of the throw bolt is correct; it will need to be replaced if it’s not.
