Owners of rental properties know that security is a major concern, both for the property itself as well as the tenants. When it comes to securing a rental property, you need to offer many different things to make the property more appealing to those who might rent from you. Upgrading different things throughout is one way to get tenants, but one of the less known ways is to offer more security features.
Here are some of the best ways to secure your rental property so tenants are protected. And you’ll also be protecting your investment as well.
Secure Entry Doors
Adding strong entry doors is one of the best places to start. Since most burglaries happen through front doors, it just makes sense to secure this area as well as possible With many stylish options, you can do this easily and attractively.
We install both steel and fiberglass entry doors that provide exceptional security. A project like this also offers a good return on investment in terms of added property value.
Better Replacement Windows
Having stronger, better windows is another way to add to the security of a rental property. Many of the window lines we install come with security options, including window lock sensors. And if you have rental units occupied by children, you’ll appreciate features that limit opening size and prevent falls from open windows.
Law enforcement professionals recommend well-lit exteriors for added security. Outdoor lighting can deter people from breaking into a house. Lighting should be installed that focuses not only on entry points like doors and windows but also illuminates landscaping that might provide a hiding place.
Consider Security Alarms
Alarms and security cameras are two recommended courses of action to make your property more secure and your tenants more comfortable. It may be wise to give them access to the video feeds and information as to how your security system works. If you install alarms on individual units, make sure the occupants know how to properly operate them.
