Tips for keeping your home safe from burglars

At Dalton Timmis Insurance in Midland, we know how much your home means to you and your family. That’s why it’s very important that you take measures to burglar-proof your property.

Burglary is always a crime of opportunity. Most burglars attack during the daytime when dense bushes and trees protect them from view and the building appears unoccupied.

To best protect your home, look at it from a burglar’s perspective. What are the vulnerable parts? Take a few simple and inexpensive steps to make sure your home is not an attractive target.
