Home improvements are always valuable because they not only make your property look better and feel good, but home renovations also increase the value of your property especially when you add the latest security features to your doors and windows. Adding extra features such as burglar-proofing your doors and windows is a recommended security factor that not only prevents common theft but also provides that additional layer of comfort knowing that you are extra safe in your home.
At Chartwell Construction, we provide our clients with various options when it comes to choosing the material that can be used in their door or window replacement or renovation projects. Likewise, we also offer our suggestions about the kinds of materials which are best used for the project such as choosing full glass windows over window panels when you want an open-living concept where you’ll have more natural light to come in. Also, we offer our suggestions when it comes to what types of extra features we can add to your doors or windows such as the frames, the handles, and the locks.
We make sure that we offer the best options to our clients and this means providing good advice which can help improve your property. Depending on the existing style, or what the clients would want to achieve with the project, we can point out the best options on what walls to take down to build an opening for a new door or window.
When using glass materials for your doors and windows, you’ll have the choice between tempered glass and a polycarbonate material which are four times and ten times stronger than annealed glass respectively. Tempered glass is made from alternating cooling and heating which makes the material stronger, and therefore, rather than cracking, the whole glass will crumble when broken into – which the noise will wake you up when burglars attempt to enter your home. On the other hand, polycarbonate and even plexiglass are made out of acrylic and resembles real glass, making them impact resistant but costs less than real glass.
For additional window security, there are various window locks we can add for extra protection. From pin locks that are installed to the floor that prevents your window from being lifted to hinged wedge locks that prevent your window from being opened from top or bottom, at Chartwell Construction, we can help you choose what’s best for your windows. In addition, we can also help install door and window sensors to alert you of unwanted intruders trying to get in on your property. On Window Bars: Lastly, we can also build window bars not only for decorative purposes and to keep intruders coming in, but also to prevent accidents happening especially when you have children or pets at home.
