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!

How secure is your home?

No comments

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.
