Industry: Real Estate

Chicago, IL (PRUnderground) May 19th, 2015

Door And Window Guard Systems Inc. (D.A.W.G.S), a provider of steel window and door guards for vacant property security, announces expansion of operations to East Coast Markets including Philadelphia, PA, Wilmington, DE and Camden, Trenton, and Newark, NJ.

DAWGS has successfully helped the real estate markets and blighted communities in Chicago, Detroit and Ohio, the expanded East Coast coverage will help with neighborhood revitalization efforts across the country.

Vacant properties depress property values and de-stabilize communities.  Additionally, vacant properties that are not properly secured attract a criminal element.  DAWGS steel door and window guards keep the property secure, allows access as required, while keeping crime at bay.  DAWGS door and window guards also fight blight.  They blend in with the surroundings and provide an aesthetically pleasing alternative to other board-up options.

In addition to providing steel door and window guards, DAWGS Clearguard product offers a hybrid security approach.  Since the majority of break-ins occur on the sides or backs of properties, the hybrid approach offers a clear polycarbonate plastic option for the front of the building with steel window and door guards securing the sides and rear of the property.

Recently, real estate professionals and restoration companies have been turning to DAWGS for their door-only property security offering.  In the case of real estate agents, the coded steel door secures the property and eliminates the need for a lock-box and the missing key issues that accompany it.  For emergency restoration companies, managing the multiple vendors coming and going from the property can be a logistical nightmare.  The DAWGS door guard allows the restoration company to grant access to contractors as required without the need to manage keys and coordinate meetings.

According to Jim Glass, Partner and Vice President of Engineering for DAWGS, “DAWGS has helped turn around blighted and declining neighborhoods in Chicago, Detroit, NW Indiana and parts of Ohio.  We are pleased to now be able to offer our property security services to communities in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.  The expansion will also bring needed employment opportunities to the communities we will now serve.”
