If you asked a thousand people what are the most important things to do to make sure your property is secure, I would say top of their list is secure windows, doors and locks for your property. We have all heard about the nightmare of someone who left there conservatory doors unlocked and finding that there home has been ransacked. How can we stop this happening?
1). Ensure you lock all windows, doors, porch doors and your conservatory before you go to bed.
2) Install a burglar alarm
If you are paying out several thousands of pounds on your new conservatory, windows and doors, it might be an idea to get a burglar alarm fitted. You can buy a reliable burglar alarm for around the £100 mark that triggers attacks and acts as a deterrent to intruders. Fitting a quality burglar alarm could also cut the cost of your home insurance.
As an accompaniment to a brand new burglar alarm, think about installing CCTV. Businesses frequently use it so what’s stopping you from installing it at your home?. Put a camera in all your rooms and at the front and back doors to ensure you have visibility of anyone trying to break in. Many burglars will think twice about forcing their way into your private living space if they catch sight of CCTV. It’ll also obviously increase the chances of identifying thieves.
4) Get a friend or neighbour to house-sit
Heading off on holiday for a week or two? Ask a friend or neighbour to pop in first thing in the morning and last thing at night to draw or pull your curtains open. It will also be a chance for you to show off your new conservatory.
5) Stop leaving the spare key out
When somebody needs to get in the house and you’re not there it’s always tempting to leave a spare key for them under the doormat or in a plant pot next to the door. Don’t do it!
Burglars will look for keys in such spots and you’ll be giving them an open invitation into your home. How would you explain that to the insurers?
6) Get the latest up to date modern windows and doors fitted in your property.
