How to Improve Your Home Door Security

There are many steps you can take to increase the security of your front doors:

Always Check the Basics First

There are all sorts of locks you can add to the external doors in your property, but it makes no difference if the doors themselves are fundamentally unsound. So, it’s important you first check all hinges are tightly screwed into the frames. With wooden doors, you need to check that the door frames are in good condition and not suffering from problems such as rot or warping.

Don’t Neglect the Back Door

French Doors The back of your house is just as much of a security risk as the entrance door is, if you don’t have secure doors. Back doors need just as much security as front doors do, including deadbolts and other locks. That’s why we provide double glazed patio doors, fitted with anti-lift devices and locking mechanisms. If you have sliding patio doors at the back of your property, it’s a good idea to have locks installed at both the top and the bottom of the door to provide optimum security.

We provide quality back doors for your property that are professionally fitted with quality locks for ultimate security.

Upgrade the Locks on Your Doors

Upgrading your locks is the most foundational part of front door security and, therefore, it is extremely important you make sure you’re using the right locks. If your locks are rusty, stiff, or even broken, it’s extremely important you get them replaced. You should also be aware of what your locks are vulnerable to so that you can take steps to protect against this.

When someone tries to attack your front door security, the first thing they target is the front door locks. Everything about your front door security starts and finishes with the locks, so you need to ensure they are strong, durable, and reliable. If you’re unsure which locks are best for your front door, speak to our experts. They can help advise on the most reliable locks to enhance front door security.

Install a Better Door

Nothing improves your front door security more than installing a secure and high-quality front door. If your front or back doors are hollow, you must replace them immediately for security reasons. If your doors sound hollow, they are merely sheets of veneer over cardboard and can be easily broken through if a thief wants to gain access to your property.

Re-Key the Locks

If you’re not the first person to live in your property, it is important you increase your front door security by re-keying the locks. This ensures that whoever may still have the keys to your property won’t be able to use them. As soon as you move into a new property, it is essential you re-key the locks to ensure the security of your home.

Extra Security Locks and Additions

There are so many ways you can increase the security of your front door and one of these is by installing extra locks and devices, such as:

Mortice deadlock – these locks fit inside the door and extend through into the frame.
Rim automatic deadlock – this lock is a more secure version of the traditional Yale lock and is ideal for thin doors that are not deep enough for a morticed lock.
Cylinder guard – this device goes around the barrel of a lock and helps protect it from attack.
Door viewer – many people install spyholes in their doors so that they can check who is standing at the door without having to open it first.
Door chain – door chains do a fantastic job of preventing doors from opening fully until the homeowner is happy to open the door fully and allow the caller inside.

We Install High-Quality Front Doors

Although door locks are a significant aspect of front door security, a secure front door also depends a lot on the door itself. When you choose a front door for security purposes, you should invest in a quality, durable, and reliable material. All the exterior doors we sell and install are made from the following reliable, quality, and secure materials:

– Fibreglass
– Solid wood
