Hopefully, these security hazards can be avoided with updating or replacing any of the faulty doors and with these few security tips.
The Hazards of a Faulty Door
Besides windows front doors are the usual way of entry for any intruder, which puts you, your family, and your home at risk. If you suspect your door may not be up to standard check and look for any signs of weakness. For example, if you notice that there may be a gap between your door and the frame you should consider replacing the door.
