At Ideal Window Solutions, we understand better than most the importance of feeling safe and secure in your own home – a home isn’t really a home without it. Around 70% of thieves gain access through the front door, with burglaries taking place every 106 seconds, which works out as 34 burglaries an hour or 816 per day! The fact is, your home is only as secure as its weakest point of entry, so it’s essential that your front, back, garage, and side doors are as secure and burglar resistant as possible.
