We lock our doors for safety purposes, but all too often, we forget about window security. Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey-New York Metro, your trusted window and door supplier, expounds on the different ways that windows protect your home. They will show how your windows and doors can protect your home and family from any threat.
An unlocked front door exposes your home to intruders, so lock it whenever you leave your home. Unlocked windows also offer an inviting entrance but are often overlooked, so be especially mindful of securing them. Don’t forget your basement and second-story windows.
Falls are among the most common causes of injury among children. You can keep your children safe by securing the windows in your home. Make sure there is no furniture or other large items nearby that children can climb to reach windows.
Emergency Escape Routes
Windows offer an alternate escape route in case of fire. Create an escape plan and practice it with your family so that everyone knows what to do in an emergency. Do not install window AC units that can block your emergency escape route. Make sure your windows are not painted or nailed shut.
Windows keep the heat and cold, water, dust and insects from entering your home. If you feel drafts coming in or heat going out your home, seek help from your window professional. Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey-New York Metro can do a thorough inspection. If necessary, we’ll recommend a window replacement. We will also install new window screens to keep insects out of your home.
