Backyard sheds are often used to store some of our most prized possessions. Much like a house, it’s important your shed be adequately secure and protected.
There are certain things burglars look for in their pursuit. By being aware of these factors now, you’ll be able to better protect your belongings in the future.
Here are three security tips for protecting your shed and keeping all of your belongings secure.
A Locking System
This first factor is perhaps, the most obvious. If you don’t want your things to get stolen, lock them up, right? All portable buildings from Cook Portable Warehouses are constructed with high quality doors reinforced by a sturdy locking system.
If, however, your shed does not come with such security measures, it would be wise to invest in a lock right away.
Trim Overgrown Plants
Thieves are likely to approach your shed if they feel they can do so while remaining relatively hidden. Overgrown foliage provides the ideal setting for creeping around unnoticed. Take time to trim away any unnecessary overgrowth.
Remember, the more you can see, the less they can hide. You can download our creative guide for landscaping around your shed free here.
Light Dark Spaces
With that being said, you may want to go a step further by installing landscape lighting or motion activated floodlights. These items are relatively inexpensive and can be found at your local home improvement stores.
These security measures can be applied to protect your shed and also your home. The more you know, the better prepared you’ll be.
