How TruFrame windows help prevent home intrusions

Nobody wants to think their house may one day be burgled. It’s every homeowner’s worst nightmare and any home could at some point, become the target of criminals. In this article, we’ll look at ways to create a safer and more secure home, which is protected against any possible invasion. We’ll also take look at how TruFrame windows and doors offer heightened security for added peace of mind.

Secure practice

Before we go into the security features of TruFrame’s windows and doors, there are a number of things homeowners can do to reduce the risk of becoming the target of criminal activity.

Firstly, leaving valuables on display should be avoided. A criminal is more likely to break into a home if they can see contents worth taking. Electronics, jewellery and other high-value items are most enticing, so should be moved out of sight from anyone looking into the home.

This can be difficult if the house has patio or bifold doors installed, however net curtains or blinds will help to prevent unwanted visitors from seeing inside the property.

It’s advised that homeowners don’t give off the impression that their home is unattended. If out for the night, we recommend leaving lights on inside so criminals will think somebody is home. Similarly, if a homeowner is on holiday, installing light timers ensures lights come on for set periods. This is a good way to create the illusion that someone is in the house.

If that is not possible, it is advised that a friend, family member or neighbour visit the house daily to open and close curtains and switch on a light at night, to provide additional safety.
