Did you know that 9.4% of households experienced one or more household crimes with break-ins and attempted break-ins attributing to 38% of those crimes*. Like most homeowners, you’re probably already vigilant about keeping your home secure by locking your doors and windows. Or you’ve invested in a security system, motion lights, cameras or all of the above. You feel pretty secure, but have you done enough?
Most likely whoever would try to get into your home wouldn’t be the most sophisticated burglar. They’d look for easy access where they could get in and out quick—most burglaries take less than ten minutes. They’re also likely to be scared and wary of anything that slows them down or causes them to draw attention to themselves. That’s why the most popular ways of breaking into homes is through an unlocked door or breaking a window.
So what can you do? You can make it harder for them to gain access by fortifying your windows. No, not with bars—with window film.
