When taking on a home improvement project for your San Diego home, there are a number of factors to consider. Typically, these factors will include increasing the energy efficiency of a home, updating its aesthetic appeal or adding to the resale value of the home. However, one of the most important reasons to take on a home improvement project is to increase your home’s security for you and your family. Replacement windows are one of the smartest ways to create a more secure home and to protect both your belongings and those you love. Here we will discuss a few ways replacement windows can help keep your home safe and sound.
Choosing Double or Triple Pane Replacement Windows
Your windows are one of the easiest access points for outside threats to enter your home. Typically, break ins will occur by smashing a glass to open the window and enter the house. If your windows are too thin, your home will be left vulnerable for attacks. By replacing your windows with double or triple pane glass, not only will it be more difficult to break in, but thieves may not even attempt to do so after realizing how thick the glass is.
Choosing Windows with Up to Date Security Hardware
Traditional windows are stunning, but most feature out of date security hardware like simple latches that can easily be maneuvered from the outside. By replacing your windows with a more modern model, your home can utilize quality security measures to protect your family and your belongings.
Choose Windows that Decrease Safety Threats
When it comes to your windows, not all threats come from the outside. Windows that become jammed or lodged into place quickly become a safety hazard as they can slam shut at any given moment, injuring anyone who’s near them. This makes them particularly dangerous for homes where small children live. By replacing your windows with a new and fully functioning model you can greatly decrease the chances of window-related injuries occurring.
