Your home should be a refuge in which you relax and enjoy family life; consequently, it’s vital that you feel safe and secure. Home security is essential but so many of us neglect it until it’s too late and it’s only when we have become a victim of burglary that we finally start to think about improving our security. Here at Bygone Windows we take your security seriously and our sash windows are a great, simple way to protect against criminal activity. We’ve compiled a few tips to help you get your security up to scratch by deterring burglars:


There really is no need to transform your home into Fort Knox as our sash windows can provide an extra level of security that your home needs. A criminal will always look for old, worn and therefore, weak windows as it’s the easiest way that they can enter a home; unfortunately, that means that if your windows aren’t in good condition, they could be actively attracting criminals to your properly. Our quality sash windows make it more difficult for a criminal to gain enter through your windows and new windows can deter criminals from showing any interest in your home at all.


An intruder alarm is a simple yet effective way to protect your home in much the same way as our windows are. A visible intruder alarm will put criminals off targeting your home and if a criminal does attempt to break in then an alarm will sound to alert both you and your neighbours to the activity and with the added protection of strong sash windows, you will have more time to call the authorities.
