Protect your home from thieves when it’s unoccupied

According to the Office for National Statistics, 59% of intruders gained entry to a targeted property via the front door with 70% of all domestic burglaries taking place during the week. Add to these figures the fact that the risk of burglary doubles in the run up to and over Christmas and you realise there’s never been a better time to protect your home, especially when it’s unoccupied.

These figures, unfortunately, come as no surprise to us. We have lost count of how many calls we’ve received from distraught homeowners who have been burgled whilst at work on a Monday afternoon or the properties we’ve visited after Christmas where the front door has not withstood an attack and the home has been ransacked by thieves. That’s the worst part of our job.

The good news is, here at Secure House, we know exactly how to get get one step ahead of the burglars and remain there. This means increasing the security in and around your home in as many different ways as possible.

As homeowners ourselves, our main objective is to ensure that our family and our possessions are as safe and secure as possible and the first place to start is by replacing windows and doors with security windows and doors.

We have a huge range of the very highest quality security doors and windows to choose from. Not only do each and every one of our products offer enhanced home protection and security, they also look stunning and are specifically designed to secure your home and complement its individual style and character at the same time. People often think that a secure window or door will be ugly and purely functional. That’s definitely not the case with our products!

With a modest investment, it is possible to manufacture and install a bespoke or off-the-shelf security front door and we would also recommend replacing any back or side doors with a matching security door for all round protection. Adding security windows and even security shutters should also be considered if budgets allow.

Adding security front, side and back doors and windows to any home will make all the difference when it comes to improving residential safety and security. They will also completely transform the aesthetics of a property and add value. But, most importantly, they will ensure that burglars remain on the outside of your property where they belong!
