With the highest population in the state, the Queen City is host to a major international airport, many businesses and a bustling tourism industry. Despite its appeal, Charlotte is not prone to local crime. However, City-data.com reports property crimes in the city have been higher than the national average for the past decade.

One of the best ways to protect your property and your family is to guard your home with a safe and sturdy door. If you’ve just moved into a new property or if your door is outdated, you might want to consider calling on a Charlotte door installation expert to make sure your home is safeguarded in the best way possible.

Local pro Bob Blanton of All Seasons Window & Door Co. Inc., says the first step should be evaluating if your door is in good shape and well-insulated. If it is, Blanton says consider upgrading the locks.

“I would recommend adding additional locking mechanisms or even adding a storm door with a good lock,” he says. “If the door needs to be replaced, I would recommend a 20-gauge steel door with a good deadbolt. And make sure the new door jamb has a steel plate mounted where the lock and deadbolt penetrate.”
