You are ten times more likely to be burgled if you don’t have basic security – even something as simple as putting strong locks on doors and windows will keep your house much safer.

The cylinder on a UPVC Door that you operate with your key is otherwise known as a Euro Profile Cylinder and should be fitted into the door so that there is no more than 5mm maximum sticking out either side of your handles. This not only looks better appearance wise but makes the door more secure and less vulnerable to burglary.

When a double glazed unit mists up, it can easily be replaced and does not mean that you have to replace the entire window frame.

If you have a wooden door, most insurance companies will require you to have a British Standard 5 lever Deadlock fitted or your contents may not be covered. Make sure you check with your insurance company in order to avoid disappointment.
