When you’re having patio doors installed by Tameside companies, make sure you’re as security conscious with these new products as you are with your front door. You don’t want to make it easy for people to break in, after all.
This part of the house can be vulnerable so focusing on strengthening the doors is certainly advisable, especially as we head into winter when burglars are more likely to target homes since it’s easier for them to do so under the cover of darkness.
Consider investing in decorative steel bars that come with alarms already installed in them that can really help bolster your home security system.
Having secondary locks installed would also be advisable, whether you opt for keyless remotes or a standard deadbolt.
You may also want to consider investing in a set of security bars that can be installed over the glass on your patio doors. Even if you have the best burglar alarm in the world, having doors that are predominantly made of glass means that it’s easier for intruders to break in. With security bars, even if the glass is broken, it will be hard – or impossible – for someone to get into your home through the patio doors.
This time of year is, according to MoneySuperMarket research, peak season when it comes to home insurance burglary claims, with the months between September and November seeing the highest rate of these claims.
As such, it would certainly be wise to focus on home security and make improvements as and where you can.
