A burglary is one of the most violating experiences that a homeowner can ever experience. At Armor Concepts, we know how this feels because this because we experienced several of them. The thought of someone in your home, going through your things, is very difficult to deal with.
Calling a carpenter for door jamb repair after a kick-in can cost more than $500.
The most disturbing fact about being robbed is you can count on them coming back. Simply put, they now know what you have and they know that insurance will replace what was taken.
The first move that many homeowners make after a break-in is to purchase a standard home alarm system. Installing an alarm will let you know the next time your are being robbed but will not stop a repeat offense. The first thing you should do after a break-in is to make sure that you are not a victim again. This should involve taking basic steps to prevent another break-in which involves securing the exterior of your home.
Installing an alarm system before strengthening the exterior of your home is like relying on OnStar to protect you in the event of an auto accident, instead of fastening your seat belt or buying a safer car. It simply does not make sense. Do not let someone talk you into spending a fortune because you are scared.
