Why You Should Upgrade Your Doors, Windows and Locks

Monday, August 05, 2019 Steve Sherbourne

Upgrading your doors, windows and locks has a lot of significant advantages. Maybe you want to keep your property looking modern? Or a security issue has left you contemplating the safety of your home? Whatever the reason for upgrading, let's take a look at how you can benefit.

1. Add security to your home

Keeping your property, and everything inside, safe is important to any homeowner. With the latest technology offering a range of video security options, it’s easy to forget about the simple things. Often, an upgrade to your windows, doors and locks not only provides additional security, but also peace of mind.

Home security

Access points to your property are most likely to be targeted if they aren’t performing as they should. Carrying out preventive maintenance on your doors, windows and locks helps you to start securing your home and understand what upgrades may be needed.

2. Ensure insurance compliance

Did you know that your doors, windows, and locks need to comply with your home insurance policy? Checking your level of protection and that your doors, windows, and locks are compliant with your policy is crucial to ensuring you’re covered, with failure to comply potentially making any claims invalid. This is true for both commercial and domestic properties.

Our locksmith services, include installation of five lever insurance grade sash and deadlocks, and multi point locks for all types of doors to ensure your property complies with the latest standards. This could also help you save money as sometimes home insurance policies will offer a discount for properties with highly secured locks.

3. Upgrade the appearance of your property

Have your doors and windows started to deteriorate over time? If a renovation project appeals to you then consider replacing your windows and doors to keep your home looking modern and refreshed. Upgrading your locks will improve functionality and performance of your home, as well as the added benefit of a new style. Upgrading can also warn off opportunistic thieves, as modern, secure-looking properties are generally avoided.

Windrush have installed new pvcu patio doors in the residents homes on site. The window installers being friendly and polite and having a nice demeanour and getting on well with the residents. The work was carried out in a professional manor with their work being clean and tidy all with an insurance baked guarantee. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I would just like to say that I was very impressed by the two young men who came to do the windows yesterday, they were very efficient, had impeccable manners and they cleared up after themselves which was a joy.

Windrush serviced two Velux windows and re-glazed with new sealed units, re-glazed a bedroom window with three sealed units, and re-glazed a conservatory upgrading sealed units to "Low E Argon" gas and thermal bar

During the School holidays the Windrush team carried out window adaption works for the School. Windrush installed remote window winding equipment to our high level windows that have been a health and safety issue with pupils and staff standing on chairs to open. I can recommend Windrush for their professional approach, competitive pricing and ability to accommodate our requirements during a busy time with many other trades on site. They were willing to change their work schedule to accommodate changing circumstances on site.

This June Windrush installed 39 Pvcu windows to our student accommodation block at Rewley Abbey Court. The work required them to install the windows while residents were in occupation, some with young children. Windrush carried out a full risk and method statement and appraisal to carry out the works in a safe manner with multi-occupation to consider. Full scaffolding and access booms were used with everything being alarmed and fenced off with appropriate signage in place. The Windrush team involved had all the necessary accreditation holding CSCS cards, asbestos awareness trained, CRB checked etc. The windows were as per our requested specification with Windrush being the most competitive out of the competition. The College are very pleased with all aspects of the work carried out and will be using Windrush on our future projects.
