Are you thinking about doing some renovations around your home? The past 18 months have spurred many homeowners to make home improvements. Why not make home security a renovation priority? Explore why you should add home security to your next home renovation project.

Home Improvement During the Pandemic

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many families have decided now would be a good time to invest in some home improvement projects. And for good reasons, many adults and kids spend more time at home now than ever before, so they want to add something new and fresh to their living space.

Google searches for home improvement work have increased nearly 50% compared to pre-pandemic levels. And with the economy continuing to rebound from last year’s recession, now is as good as time as ever to invest in a home improvement project.

Improving Your Home’s Value

Your home is an asset. And you want to protect that asset to the best of your ability. Investing in home security and smart technology not only helps protect your home and the valuables inside but also increases the property value.

Home Security

If you’re considering renovating your home, consider adding home security to your plans. The average home renovation project can range from a few thousand dollars to well over $100,000.

Adding a security system is generally less invasive than a renovation project and much less expensive. There are plenty of affordable security systems available on the market. Adding a security system is minuscule in cost when compared to a $20,000 home improvement project. Not to mention, it’ll help protect your renovation and add additional value to your home.

Fire and Carbon Monoxide Detection

Never overlook the importance of having modern fire and carbon monoxide detection systems in your home. House fires account for nearly $12 billion in damages each year. They can spread quickly and destroy valuable and even priceless items.

Likewise, carbon monoxide is a gas you should never take lightly. A carbon monoxide leak could have dire consequences on yourself, your family, and your pets. If you have outdated detectors, you want to update them, ensure they are working properly and located in key areas around your home.
