When it comes to burglar-proofing a residence, the first and most important issue is the front door, which can make all the difference. Kyiv is flooded with places selling armor-plated models that can be installed for $70, in under an hour.
If you really want to feel secure, however, an armor-plated door might not be enough. Although it may sound dependable, the material a door is made from is fairly irrelevant. It is highly unlikely that any burglar would use a power saw to cut through the door, after all; there are far more sophisticated (and quiet) ways of getting in. What really matters, then, are the door’s lock and its hinges.
