Minimize home-related risk with a policy and precautions
Are you in the process of buying a new house? Are you planning on some summer renovations to your current home? If so, now is the perfect time to update your homeowners policy. While you’re protecting your home with a renewed policy, don’t forget to protect your home by taking a few extra precautions.
Remember all exterior doors should be either metal or solid wood; keep all your doors and windows secured and locked. Have a deadbolt for doors, at least one inch long. If you have sliding glass doors, consider propping a piece of wood or a metal rod in the track to prevent it from being opened by force.
Other helpful tips for securing your home include: setting a few lights in your home on timers to go on and off at different times; keeping your hedges and any other landscaping properly trimmed; and positioning your valuable possessions, such as televisions and laptops, so they cannot be seen when a person looks in the window.
It’s important to secure your home and it’s equally important to have a back-up plan. That’s where we come in. We’ll make sure you have a homeowners policy that best fits your needs.
