Composite Doors and Double Glazing in Coulsdon
Easy Ways to Secure Your Home

Burglaries happen across the UK every day. Thankfully, there are simple ways to secure the home from thieves. While alarm systems prove beneficial, not everyone in Coulsdon or the surrounding areas want them. This is where the team at Dorwyn Ltd comes in. We fit high-quality uPVC windows, double glazing, bifold doors and composite doors, and ensure all uPVC doors and windows feature durable locks.

So how can you secure your home in a way that won’t cost you a small fortune? Read on to find out or call Dorwyn Ltd for advice, supply and installation in the local area.

Inspect the Locks

It’s essential to check that all door and windows lock as they should. This is because any issue will make your locks in the Coulsdon area that much easier to pick or break through. Be on alert for loose or flimsy door handles, damage to the lock itself indicating a previous attempt, and be sure to secure each entry point before you leave the house.

Upgrade Your Doors

If in doubt, consider the multipoint locking systems found in composite doors. Modern bifold doors, windows with double glazing and uPVC doors are highly secure too, making it more difficult for a potential burglar to get in. Beyond updating to more durable doors, why not ask our team for uPVC windows, fully installed by a reliable member of our team? By doing so, you replace the outdated locking systems that today’s burglars might see as an easy mark.

Clear Away the Hedges

Many homeowners think they’ll discourage thieves by covering windows with tall shrubbery. In fact, this can have the opposite effect. Potential intruders love to have a place to hide away while messing with your doors and windows, preferring to avoid open spaces that could land them in trouble. When combined with the strength of composite doors, modern bifold doors, and uPVC windows complete with double glazing, your home in Coulsdon will put off anyone who prefers to stay unseen.

Don’t Just Think About Night

It’s natural to feel most vulnerable when the sun goes down, but statistically speaking, most burglaries happen during the day. This makes closing your uPVC doors, patio doors and windows whenever you’re not in the room vital. By keeping these entry points closed when unmonitored, you put off any would-be thieves.

Modernise When Needed

Do you have concerns that your existing windows and doors in the Coulsdon area just aren’t up to the standards of today’s installations? If so, call Dorwyn Ltd for uPVC windows and doors, bifold doors and more besides. We strip out the fixtures that could enable forced entry and install the latest products, like composite doors, renowned for boosting security in the UK.
