Is your home begging to be broken into?by Tim Manni
Chances are your home is the largest investment you’ll ever make. We’ve made that point many times over. But you can never say enough about how to protect your biggest investment from thieves and crooks.
Nearly 2.2 million burglaries occurred in 2010 alone, raking up $4.6 billion in estimated damages. While home repairs can remedy the physical damage caused by a break-in, the emotional toll of a home invasion may never go away.
To help homeowners deter criminals from targeting their properties, we recently published a slideshow that explained six different ways you can think like a criminal when evaluating your home’s security.
But our friends at ImprovementCenter.com took this concept a step further when they designed their latest infographic, “Under lock and key: protecting your home from invasion.”
‘Under lock and key’ displays the latest crime statistics in addition to providing concrete strategies and tips on how to protect your home and deter criminals.
