5 Top Tips For Making Your Home More Secure

As much as it is important that your home looks as stylish as you want and is designed to your taste, it is imperative that you feel safe in your home and ensure that you take steps to make sure you feel comfortable and secure. Often if you have a conservatory or another extension to your home you may want to make extra changes to your home to make you feel more protected. There a number of reasons for this and here are a few tips to help you along the way.

Replace Your Doors With Composite Doors

Composite doors provide high quality protection for your home as well as giving an attractive welcome. They have a number of properties that will increase the security of your home; not only do they stay stable during heat changes of the seasons, but they are made from a variety of materials ensuring that they have the necessary reinforcements.

Composite doors have an ultra secure multipoint locking system, meaning the door is protected from any possible vulnerabilities all along the frame. Doors of other kinds may require expensive reinforcing to provide the same level of protection as composite doors.

Install uPVC Windows

Having u-PVC windows installed in your home would add extra security as they are designed to provide rigidity and strength. These types of windows allow for high performance handles, hinges and locking mechanisms to be installed, automatically increasing the level of security in your home.

Choose Bi-Folding Doors

Not only are bi-folding doors ideal for creating versatility in your home, they are a great choice if you are wanting to ensure that the doors at the back of your house are secure. When bi-folding doors are shut, they are designed to interlock and create a solid walling system that will no doubt be difficult to break through.

Keep Your Keys Out Of Sight

Of course there are other tips in increasing the security of your house that do not require such big changes. There are a number of things you can do when you are leaving the house. One of the biggest to keep any keys out of sight of the windows. Often burglars will break into a home in order to steal car keys and so it is better for your safety if they are hidden.

Don’t Advertise When You’re Away

If you have gone on holiday, it may be wise to make it look as though someone is in every now and again. This can be done in a number of ways, either through using automatic light timers or giving a neighbour a spare key to check on everything while you are away.
