-- In 2009, there were an estimated 2,199,125 burglaries in the United States and, of these burglaries, its victims suffered an estimated $4.6 billion in lost property. There are burglaries across the nation each year and, in the state of New York, there are about 62,842 burglaries in a single year. The alarming rates and concerned residents produced a need for protection services to prevent a break-in.
After servicing all five boroughs of New York, Medallion Security now helps protect the Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. areas. The family owned and operated business specializes in the installation of secure doors and windows to prevent the tragedy of a burglary, along with replacement doors and windows for victims of a burglary.
“We began the business because we saw that the need was there and, specifically in Washington D.C., there are some neighborhoods that are rougher than others,” said Chief Financial Officer Sam Sanchez.
Medallion Security reviews each product before installing it into a client’s home. While other businesses in similar fields order products from other companies, Sam Sanchez and his team manufacture each product after taking the necessary measurements for a complete and custom installation.
“Our products are of the highest quality to ensure our clients are protected,” said Sanchez. “Our bars for windows are solid all the way through, instead of weak and hollow, and we use triple pane windows over double pane windows for ultimate protection.”
After success in its security services, Medallion Security expanded its aesthetic services. The aesthetic sect of the business offers pavers that add a timeless affect to landscapes, along with decks, fences, gutters and retractable awnings to complete the look of a home.
“Our success comes from our good word and our good work,” he said. “It’s not about selling, it’s about helping and we hope to continue working with the community and keeping its residents safe.”
Prince George’s County in Maryland, also known as PG County, promotes Medallion Security and encourages citizens to have their products installed to help keep the neighborhood safe.
