Important Tips About Window Security

One of the most important considerations when choosing home window replacement products is security. While many modern window designs put security and defense on high priority, some shady individuals can still find new and clever ways to get around the usual measures.

Here’s some advice on how to improve window security and protect your home from would-be trespassers.

Visual Inspections

Take a walk around your house, and give every single one of your replacement windows a closer look. Check for cracking and breakage in the frames and glazing. Wiggle the handles and hinges a little bit to see if they’re still pretty firm. Inspect the locks, and make sure that they’re still holding the window safely and securely. Pay special attention to the windows that are at an accessible height like the windows on your first floor. If you suspect any vulnerability in your windows, call your local window company for some repairs or a replacement right away.

Locks and Pins

Renewal by Andersen® windows come fully customizable with many different window accessories, including locks. Give your windows some security locks to keep your home secure even if you’re away. Additionally, installing window sensors adds another layer of defense against potential intruders as well. For windows like double-hung windows, there are security pins that allow the sash to open up slightly, allowing fresh air to still come in without sacrificing your home’s safety.

Grilles

Finally, our window replacement services also offer grille options to fully upgrade your security. Grilles are a great way to help a window maintain its operability and secure it. As an added bonus, these grilles can also be decorative, contributing to your home’s curb appeal.

"Their workers who installed the windows were excellent. Our experience with the sales rep was pleasant. He did not pressure us. He made suggestions that saved us money."

"I would give everyone involved in the whole process a 10 out of 10. With the exception of the window installation crew. They get an 11 out of 10. I can't express in words what an excellent job they did. They went above and beyond."

"Although it is a process and doesn't happen overnight the wait is worth the end results. A Representative will come to your home and walk you through the entire process. It does take a few weeks from the time they send someone to your home to personally measure your windows to the time the factory specifically custom cuts your windows and ships them out. However, the end result is overwhelmingly satisfactory. The crew sent to install them were professional, cleaned up after the job was completed and did the job in half the time they thought it would take. Highly recommend!"
