Making your home more resistant to break-ins is called "target hardening". You really cannot make your home impossible to penetrate, but you can make it more difficult. Target hardening is essentially buying time. Research shows that criminals are usually opportunists and look for homes that are easier to break into and offer the least resistance. If you can delay a burglar from entry for just three minutes, he will usually give up and leave. The risk of being seen or heard will deter most burglars.
The difficulty of kicking in your door depends primarily on two things: the quality of your deadbolt lock on your door, and the quality of strike on your door jamb. Give us a call and we be happy to provide a free home evaluation. Also, please visit our page: Security Tips for more information.
A reinforced strike plate can prevent the majority of kick in type burglaries. When combined with a quality deadbolt, a reinforced strike plate adds solid protection to the weakest part of the door opening.
