Most South West homes and properties include a shed. Usually located at the rear of a home or property, a shed offers an ideal space for storage. From vehicles to tools to the lawnmower and barbeque, a sheds use is limitless.
Although your shed may be located at the rear of your home or property, it is important to ensure it is safe and secure. Have peace of mind knowing valuable items stored in your shed are protected with these 3 tips including:
- Have locks installed on all your sheds doors
- Install window treatments in your shed
- Install a security light or alarm on your shed
Have locks installed on all your sheds doors
Whether your shed has a swinging door, roller door or both ensure they are fitted with high-quality locks. While fitting them with locks is the first step, it goes without saying to ensure these locks are put to good use and kept locked too. If your shed is located near a side entrance or alternate entrance to your home, ensure this gate or door is locked too which will further help to keep the contents of your shed protected.
Install window treatments in your shed
If your shed is fitted with windows, it is a good idea to install window treatments to avoid it being easily visible what’s stored inside. There are a range of window treatment options including tinting the windows, installing roller shutters on the outside or blinds on the inside.
Install a security light or alarm on your shed
Lighting can be another way to help keep your shed safe and secure. Installing security lighting can act as a deterrent as can a security alarm that sends an alert if your shed is broken into. Having signage displayed on the outside of your shed that it is fitted with an alarm may help to deter unwanted visitors.
