Burglary Repair Work

During a home burglary there is often a lot of damage to door and window locks where forceful entry has been gained. Lock snapping is the most common form of entry whereby the handles are broken from the door and the lock cylinder snapped out, exposing the vulnerable locking parts of the door. This kind of damage can usually be repaired quite easily as I stock a wide range of locks and handles to suit most doors. There are also higher security products available designed to withstand this type of destructive attack ensuring that your property is no longer an easy target. If you've been unfortunate enough to have been the victim of burglary I'm always happy to advise on the best course of action and provide free security surveys of existing doors and locks.

Burglary Prevention

They say prevention is better than cure. Unfortunately people tend to neglect their home security until they or someone they know is the victim of a burglary. Secure door locks are a staple part of your homes security and it's surprising to see that so many doors are using outdated vulnerable locks and handles. As well as a good handle and lock setup you should also be looking at a decent cctv and alarm system as well as good visual deterrents. Poorly lit properties are fifty percent more likely to be a target so decent flood lighting is a must have to illuminate vulnerable areas. There are numerous products on the market to add those finishing touches such as pricka strip to prevent climbing, fence panel fixings to prevent panel lifting and all manner of proximity and vibration sensors that can be fitted to windows and doors.

lock snapping problem

A recent home security study across the West Midlands area showed us the five main ways burglars get into our homes.

The results are surprising!!

-Through an open window.
8% of burglaries are a result of unlocked, open or forcing of a half open window.

-With the key.
A further 10% of home burglaries are committed with the key to the property. Do you know how many keys there are out there for your door?

-An unlocked door.
20% of the time, the burglar walks straight in through the unlocked door. Well if you're going to make it that easy what do you expect?

-Forced entry.
61% of burglaries are through forced entry such as lock snapping. The increased awareness of lock snapping should see the numbers fall over the next few years.

-Other methods.
Just 1% are through other means such as lock bumping, picking and bypassing of smart locks. Luckily for us, opportunist crooks are rarely skilled enough to James Bond their way in.

As you can guess, the majority of these are easily preventable with a little thought for your home security. Don't assume your open window/door will be fine for the five minutes you nip to the shop. Caution should be taken when moving into properties with old locks installed, do you know how many builders, ex tenants, etc have a copy of your keys? Ensuring you have good quality locks that meet the latest standards will prevent criminals exploiting weaknesses in old designs, anti snap locks being the most important upgrade.
