The windows are an important part of every American home. After all, not only does it improve your home’s ventilation but it also improves the overall look of the house. Unfortunately, no matter how pretty your window is, it does have a drawback: it can be used as an entry point into your home. Luckily, on the other hand, it is possible to prevent this from happening by properly securing your windows.
Window installation and siding contractor Custom Installations discusses below the different ways you can secure your windows:
Install Security Locks
When you install new windows in your home, they often come with locks that are said to help you secure your windows. However, according to experts, you’ll need to have these locks changed as they usually offer basic security, focusing more on aesthetics than functionality. By having the default locks replaced with stronger ones, you’ll be able to secure your windows a lot better than before.
Reinforce the Glass
Apart from replacing the default locks of your windows, window replacement and roofing services experts say that you can also secure your windows better by choosing reinforced glass from the get-go. This gives you a fortified window glass that won’t be easy to break.
Get Grilles and Security Bars
Finally, you can also consider installing grilles and security bars on your windows once they’re installed. That way, you can completely deter intruders from trying to gain access to your home via your windows. However, if you want to do this, keep in mind that you should keep at least one window free of bars and grilles in the event of an emergency.
