Windows complete the look of your home. They illuminate your indoor spaces and help with ventilation. However, they can risk your safety if not secured properly.
A trusted window and siding contractor gives tips for securing windows.
Install Grilles or Security Bars
Grilles and bars are effective in keeping unwanted guests from entering your house through windows. These barriers are difficult to break and make it harder for someone to open a window from the outside. They can also help prevent your home from being an easy target for intruders.
Invest in Quality Locks
Ensuring all window and door locks work efficiently is essential to securing your home. If you are getting new windows, it pays to invest in high-quality locks. Window guards and door chains are also great for added security.
Get Security Cameras or Alarms
You will find it easier to see if people are approaching your property with security cameras. Smart cameras allow you to monitor your indoor and outdoor spaces through your phone, tablet or computer, even when you are away. Meanwhile, alarms will alert you when someone attempts to enter your home.
Replace Damaged Windows
Intruders can use cracked windows to access your home. If you have damaged windows, do not wait long before replacing them. At Homecraft® Inc., we have attractive, durable and energy-efficient window and siding options for you.
Get Reinforced Glass
Consider investing in reinforced glass for improved home security. It is more challenging to break than regular glass, making it less likely for someone to enter through a window.
