Making Your Colorado Home Unattractive to Criminals

 In Blog

There are many ways you can be proactive in protecting your home without having to resort to Fort Knox type protection. Installing an alarm system is the obvious first step, but there are other ways you can make your home unattractive to those people shopping for a five finger discount.

A beautiful wooden privacy fence can be a great deterrent for thieves. If they can't see over your fence to check out your home, chances are they'll move on to the next house.

Preventing theft and home invasions

Criminals love the dark. The darker the area, the easier it is to sneak around and window shop for your possessions. You always hear about burglars “lurking in the shadows.” You never hear about a criminal “lurking around in a spotlight.”

Let there be light, we say! Use motion sensors and timed lights to keep intruders off of your property.

Of course, there are also the daytime robberies, where criminals use the busy daylight hours to blend into the neighborhood and sneak into your home unnoticed. Getting to know your neighbors is a great way to add an extra level of security to your home. Knowing who belongs in your neighborhood, who’s having work done on their house, who’s out of town, etc. can help alert yourself and your neighbors to criminals stalking the neighborhood in search of booty.

Ameristar’s Montage collection of solid wrought iron security and ornamental boundary fences is a great way to protect your home.

And now to our favorite crime fighting tool: the security fence! If you’re looking for sturdy, yet elegant wrought iron fence to keep out intruders, the Montage fence line by Ameristar is the best solution. This low maintenance, high security and aesthetically pleasing fencing system can be tailored to any residential, commercial or industrial property.

If the iron fence solution seems a little drastic – despite its architectural beauty – a good, solid wooden or vinyl boundary fence can provide some protection to your home. A burglar isn’t going to break into your home hoping to strike gold. He (or she) is going to go to the home where they can see the valuables they want to steal. The right fence can prevent the burglar from taking inventory of your home simply by blocking their view from the street or sidewalk.

Out of sight, out of mind. Remember, people who steal are typically not the brightest or most ambitious people in the world. If you make it just a little hard for them to break into your home, chances are they’ll move on to an easier target.

(P.S. Lock your windows and doors.)
