The only way I know to answer this question is to give you the facts as I see them and let you make up your own mind.
The facts as I know them:
A deterrence to Burglars
Security gates, when designed and installed properly, absolutely deter thieves. According to several articles I have read there is a break-in approximately every 15 seconds in Los Angeles County. These beak-ins are not unique to any one city and no cities are exempt. Let me repeat that last bit again...No Cities Are Exempt. We wear a seat belt to protect us and our loved ones from injury in a car crash (because no car is exempt from car crashes). It stands to reason that similarly a security feature like a security gate can help to protect us.
Protecting children and Animals
If you have small children or pets at home, you definitely want to think about installing a security gate. It will protect them from danger. When you let your kids play in the yard, you will not have to worry about them roaming into the street and potentially getting hit by a car. If your dog or cat escapes out of your home, it will at least be behind a gate and will not be able to roam into oncoming traffic on the street.
Today, a high-quality security gate can also increase the curb appeal of your home. You can customize the gate so that it compliments your home well. When people drive past your house and see a security gate surrounding it, they will have a more positive impression of your home. When the time comes to sell your home, some buyers will appreciate the security it offers and may even offer you a higher price.
Lower Home Insurance Costs
Cheaper home insurance premiums is another good reason to install a security gate and fence around your property. Your insurance company will like the fact that you are making an effort to deter burglars from your home and may be willing to reduce your insurance rates. After you install the fence, take a photo of it and show it to your insurance company for proof. You may be surprised how much it saves you on insurance.
Preventing Unwanted Visitors
Do you frequently experience solicitors coming to your door and selling you magazine subscriptions and various other services? If you are a private person and do not want to be bothered by unwanted guests, you have another reason to install a security gate. This gate will prevent these guests from coming to your door and ruining your privacy.
