How to Keep Your Home Safe: From Composite Doors to Double Glazing

You and your family’s well-being is the focal point of every home. An integral part of this is keeping it safe from possible threats such as burglaries, damage and wintertime chills, which can also cost you and your family in the long run. To keep your home safe, here are some simple tips that can maximise the safety and security in your home.

Protect your windows with modern double-glazing

Double-glazing is a great way to deter burglars. They are thicker and harder to break than single-glazing and create more noise, all things that are likely to prevent someone from targeting your home or stop them in their tracks. Furthermore, double-glazing is more insulating meaning your home will be warmer during the winter months and less likely to deal with frozen or burst pipes.

Opt for composite front doors

Composite doors are much stronger than other types of doors and offer an unrivalled standard of protection. In the darker months, burglaries are 25% more likely. However, you can rest assured with a composite door as they are much safer. With a solid combination of composite materials that actively resist warping, expanding and contracting and high-performance glazing, we’re firm believers that composite doors tick all of the boxes when it comes to strength, security and peace of mind.

Get to know your neighbours

Your neighbours are one of the best tools you can use to keep your home safe. They are likely around when you are not and can keep an eye on your home for any concerning behaviour. If you are close with your neighbours and have a good relationship with them, they are much more likely to help you out and watch over your home while you are at work or on holiday.

Leave the lights on

Burglaries and crime are much more likely to occur during darker hours. Therefore, leaving your lights on when you are out at night will help deter break-ins. If you are away for a longer period of time, use timers to put lights on inside your home.
