Securing Your Windows

Does Your Home Stand Out As The Ideal Target For The Opportunist Burglar Prowling Around Your Neighbourhood Right Now?

Every day and night in the UK, thousands of innocent victims have their homes broken into, property damaged, and homes ransacked by criminals looking to make quick cash

And it feels like it’s getting closer to home as social media quickly spreads the unpleasant stories of yet another victim of a home break-in from your own neighbourhood

What if it happened to you?

When you see all these stories, it’s something you can’t help thinking about isn’t it?

The reality is – It could happen to you – And I’m not saying that to worry you or cause you any anxiety … Instead, to get you to think about your home’s security now – Rather than having to go through what I see on a regular basis – People who have had their homes broken into and call me in to secure the property and advise them about improving their home security so it can’t happen again – That’s when it gets really expensive, stressful and incredibly time consuming

Right now, with a bit of insider knowledge, a few hours effort and not so much money – You can make your property the most unattractive home to attempt breaking into – And most of the time, that’s all it takes to avoid your home being broken into, because despite what you might think about burglars, they’re not professional safe-breakers like in the movies, or climbing the walls with ninja like skills all dressed in black  – They’re opportunists … (Scum of the earth opportunists), who are looking for the least secure home to get in and out of quickly and easily without being seen or heard

Think Like A Burglar!

Thinking like those scumbag burglars is your first insight into finding all the weak points in your home security.

This is not the movies; most burglars are common criminals – and criminals don’t exactly like working hard for their gains … they look for easy targets and vulnerable people and properties

Most burglaries are committed as opportunity break ins as thieves walk through neighbourhoods just looking for those easy and quick to gain entry targets

Stand outside your property and first view from the outside …

  • Are exterior entry points secure?
  • Are gates closed properly?
  • Are fences in good repair?
  • Does it look like there is someone home?
  • Are windows left open?
  • Are windows easy to look through and view the property on show inside?
  • What can be seen from peering through your letterbox?
  • Are doors in good repair?
  • Do you have visible sufficient locks on your doors and windows?
  • Do you have visual deterrents such as security cameras and exterior sensor lighting?
  • Would thieves sneaking around the outside of your property be visible to neighbouring houses or the road?

 

Remember these 3 things as you take the external tour of your property …

  • Burglars hate to be seen
  • Burglars hate to be heard
  • Thieves and burglars want to be in and out of your home as quickly as possible

Now, you’re thinking in terms of weak points in your home – Let’s delve a little deeper into what opportunist thieves and burglars look for and what you can do around your home  ….

 

Your Home’s Entry Points

There’s the obvious doors and windows, but also consider other not so obvious entry points
