When it comes to keeping your family safe, you might want to think about investing in a fence. Having a fence can greatly decrease the probability of a criminal sneaking up and infiltrating your home. Today we’ll be talking about how criminals can strike during the summer and how a fence can help you stay safe. Are you ready to learn more? Let’s read more!
Summer changes the way criminals attack.
There isn’t necessarily a spike in criminal activity around the summer time. This is a myth, according to the police departments of Washington DC and Baltimore. Now, the way criminals may operate will, however, change a little bit. For example, when the weather is warmer, people may forget to roll up their windows when they get out of the car. This can make your valuables very susceptible to theft if you leave them in your car. Another common summer problem is that many people leave their garage doors open. This can give criminals easy access to your home and the tools they need to infiltrate it. So, how can a fence help with both of these safety issues?
How fences make a difference.
Fences make a huge difference in terms of safety, and we’re going to tell you how. Sometimes, when criminals see a fence, they can lost interest in attempting to break in. This is called a “mental barrier.” Now, a determined criminal won’t be deterred by simply looking at a fence. That’s why you should think about height. A high fence will present an obstacle for the criminal. While even the most determined of criminals if climbing you fence, the time they spend climbing could alert a neighbor to their presence. Now, the final thing you should think about is if they get over the fence. If you have a privacy fence, then the criminal will not be seen if they make it over the fence. Consider a chain link or a picket fence to counteract this issue and protect your safety.
