Choose High-Quality Materials
As long as the materials and components that make up your replacement windows are of the highest quality, you can be sure that your investment will last long and won’t break easily under brute force. During your initial consultation with your local window contractor, learn more about the frames and other hardware components that come with their window offerings. Find out which ones are durable enough to withstand the elements and prevent intrusions.
Reinforce Your Windows
Sometimes, the locks and other security measures that come with your windows may not be enough. This is where reinforcements can be used to bolster your windows’ security. Clear or tinted films, for instance, discourages anyone from peeking inside. Some films can also reduce the likelihood of breakage in case an intrusion occurs. Window bars and grilles installed on your home’s exterior can also be of great help. Consult your window contractor to find out if any of these will be a good idea.
