When you have planned to spend some length of time away from home, possibly because of a work commitment, or you own a second property that is currently standing empty, it is very important to consider securing the premises against illegal entry for your own peace of mind.
No one likes the worry of having an empty property left at the mercy of thieves and vandals, especially when the damage caused by an illegal entry can be more far reaching and long lasting than the initial clean up after the event.
There is not only the risk of having valuable possessions stolen, but also the damage that may be done to your building, especially from potential vandals and arsonists.
There are some obvious measures you can take to protect your house. You may even have some basic security in place such as deadlocked doors and windows, and maybe an alarm system and security lighting. However, even these measures may not be enough to deter the most ardent of burglars from smashing a window or kicking a door panel through to gain entry, and quickly grabbing as much as they can and making off before the police arrive.
If you know you will be away from your home for a long while, or your second property is going to stand vacant for a long period of time, then have you considered having the doors and windows professionally boarded up with the latest design in steel security door and windows?
Long gone are the days when boarding-up service’s used ugly looking chipboard panels to secure empty homes and vacant commercial buildings, quite often wooden boarding can be easily removed with crowbars and screwdrivers, and the boards themselves can be used as fuel to start a fire within the property after the criminals have done with the place.
Secure Site UK uses the latest in galvanised steel window security screens that are perforated to allow good ventilation and light to circulate within the property while it is standing empty. These measures mean that no windows can be smashed to gain entry, or can be damaged by passing vandals out to cause trouble, but also means that internal inspections can be carried out without difficulty.
The screens used are also weatherproof, so will not deteriorate in bad weather in the same way that timber boarding will. The screens are also more aesthetically pleasing than chipboard or wooden panel boards.
