How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Before springing for a bunch of security gadgets, fortify your home’s low-tech barriers, starting with your locks. Our ratings will steer you to area locksmiths that provide excellent advice and workmanship at reasonable prices.

The first step in making any home security plan is to assess your locks. All exterior hinged doors, including doors leading to a garage, should be equipped with good deadbolt locks. A few easy steps can further beef up your locks.

Before investing in an alarm system, take a step back to evaluate—and improve—your home’s overall security. You can do many things to enhance protections that cost much less than an alarm system but do just as much good.

Insurance companies often promote policy features to make their plans seem superior to their competitors’. But most sell roughly the same coverage. Here's a rundown of what’s covered, what isn’t, and what’s optional.

We receive a disturbing number of complaints from consumers regarding window installation work, often about companies that advertise heavily. Many complaints are about sloppy work.

A quality fence can cost a bundle, especially if you choose a builder that charges high prices. Our ratings turned up companies that offer low prices and were rated highly by customers.

There’s much to decide on: fence type, materials, finish, height, spacing and width of slats, and post size. Also decide whether you want extras such as latticework or an electronic gate.
