If you don’t care about aesthetics, securing your home is easy. You could put up a ten-foot chain link fence, top it with rows of barbed wire, steel bars on your windows, and replace your front door with an industrial steel door. That will pretty much guarantee your home is well defended from intruders. It will also guarantee that you have the most visually unappealing home on your street and create several other problems:
Despite the fact that these measures do in fact secure your home, they would still attract plenty of unwanted attention. That is a security risk in and of itself. You don’t want strangers and suspicious neighbors taking pictures or poking around in your business. The most secure home is the one that hides in plain sight, not the one that is known throughout town because it looks like a prison.
At Shield, we believe that the secret to good security is to keep it a secret. All our doors and windows are custom made and can resemble anything. We offer the same forced entry, ballistic, and fire certifications as the ugly industrial steel doors, so you don’t have to choose between security and aesthetics. We can turn your home into a fortress without changing the architecture or design.
