Adding a security system to your home is one of the best ways to increase the value of your property. While high-tech security camera and alarm systems are good, they can also be expensive, they need regular updating and they only alert the homeowner once a break-in has occurred. A fast, cost-effective security solution is to install security screens to your windows and doors. At Nu Style Shutters, we specialise in creating high quality, custom security screens and doors to keep Perth homes safe. Here’s 4 ways that security screens can add instant value to your home.
They Evoke a Feeling of Safety
Homes that have gone the extra mile to ensure they are safe and secure from break-ins are worth more financially. All potential homebuyers are on the lookout for properties that have high quality security features already installed. Security screens and doors are an exceptional way to deter would-be thieves from entering your home, keeping your family and your belongings safe. If a prospective buyer feels a sense of safety when they enter your home, they are more likely to pay a higher price for it.
They Add a Modern Look and Boost Curb Appeal
Older style security screens were bulky, made homes look and feel like a fortress and even obscured views from the window. Nowadays, security doors and window screens are available in a broad range of fashionable styles, colours and materials, and when custom made to suit your home, will add visual interest and give your home a contemporary aesthetic that makes your house stand out from the neighbouring homes in your street.
They Maximise Internal Comfort
Security screens on windows and doors allow fresh air to flow through your home whilst keeping pesky flies and mosquitoes out, as well as still deterring burglars. This increases ventilation, and keeps your home cooler and pest-free in summer. A home that is safe, comfortable and free from pests is sure to attract a higher value.
They Can Reduce Home Insurance Premiums
Improving the security of a property could potentially earn a discount on home and contents insurance costs. Security doors and screens make it difficult for burglars to break into a house, which lowers your risk according to insurance companies. Most prospective homebuyers would be willing to pay more for a home which will cost them less to insure each year.
