Nicola Vaughan3 signs that your uPVC back door isn’t secure enough
The security of your home should be a top priority for every homeowner. After all, your home contains the people and possessions you care most about, so it shouldn’t be a space that just about anyone can waltz into. As you might expect, one of the most common points of entry for a would-be home intruder is the front door.
It’s important that every aspect of your home is as safe as it possibly could be, and whilst as a homeowner you often make sure that your windows and doors are secure, it’s easy to neglect your patio doors. The last thing any homeowner wants is a break in, so follow these patio door safety tips from Fitter Windows to ensure you’re doing the most you can to minimise this risk.

If you’ve had your windows for a long time or they were poorly installed, you may have begun to experience some unexpected issues. It’s common for old or dodgy windows to become stuck, which is the last thing anybody wants. If it’s stuck in the closed position, you won’t be able to let air into the affected room and your home can begin to feel quite stuffy. A stuck window can also be very serious as it becomes a fire hazard because it’s somewhere that won’t be able to be used as a possible escape route or for smoke to leave the room. It’s annoying no matter which way you look at it, so we’ve provided some quick fix tips to resolve this problem!

Burglaries and break ins are more common now than they have been before, and this means that a number of people have found their homes have been broken into and their property stolen. At the end of 2017 burglary was the 5th most common crime in England and Wales, with over 35,000 burglaries being reported each month. Having someone break in can cause a huge amount of stress and worry, which is why it’s important to take measures to cut down on the chances of it happening. Despite home security systems and alarms being better than ever, burglars are still able to gain access. Often, this is through an unsecure access point or an unlocked window or door. Luckily, there are ways to ensure your home is as secure as possible.
When purchasing a new composite front door, there are so many different styles, colours and finishes to choose from. But there is more to consider than just the overall look of the door. Behind the sleek styling and colourful finishes can be the world of difference when it comes to how your door is actually made.

Don’t make this easy for them, read our quick article below on the most common things burglars will look for to enter your home and what you can do to secure your home. From replacement windows and doors through to remembering to cancel your newspapers, we cover every aspect to help you keep your home safe and secure.

It was really easy to use and I've now spoken to somebody there to place my order and arranged for somebody to come and measure everything up for me. Saved a bunch and they where very helpful, can't wait for the new door to come now!!read more

The fitting team came within about three weeks and were professional, neat and tidy and we are very pleased with the results - four windows and double patio doors. We are very happy to recommend them.read more

Fitter Windows delivered an excellent service-from the first marketing call to the last finishing touches during the installation.
Without wasting my time Martin guided me to find the best product for me, offered me a. very reasonable quote and stayed in touch all the time to ensure that everything was running smoothly.
The installation team was very professional, efficient and polite.
Thanks to the team for the excellent service!

This is just the beginning and I cant wait to see the final results. I have been looking around the window market for about 5 years now and I think I have had every wide boy in my living room that ever existed from Arthur Daley to Del Trotter, All making promised, spending 4 or 5 hrs happily listening to their own voice and they never listen to the customer and then putting the huge sting in tale by quoting extortionate prices.
Well that all changed when a very nice Chap called Martin, from Fitter Windows rang me, obviously one of the companies I had previously been in contact with had passed on my information but Martin was a breath of fresh air. He Listened, yes I said he listened, he actually heard what I was saying, he wasnt pushy or pompous, he was just a genuinely nice bloke. He rang me the week before I was due to go on holiday, He was patient and said he would call after I got back, which he did but not the min I got of the aeroplane, he waited 2 weeks before he called me.
He came to see me yesterday and was a super nice guys. He took me through everything, step by step, we sighed the paper work and then he had a long drive back to kent, I rang martin at 7.45 to as him a question before the surveyor about Facia's, Martin wrang straight back answering the question and sorted it all
10.30 this morning the surveyor was at my house and he was such a lovely man too, that is all now sorted and my windows will be fitted at the beg of Oct.
Thank you Martin you really are a genuine superstar.
Really cant wait for them to be fitted (pics will follow....... I promise x)read more

Very happy overall with the service. There was a little bit of confusion around the quote and admin side but very promptly responded to. First delivery date was delayed due to broken down van and late arrival on revised install date due to traffic issues but I was kept informed and all went well in the end. Fitters were brilliant. Quality of Windows is excellent. Everything left clean and tidy. Would definitely use again.read more
