Over the last 9 months, over 30 homes have been broken into by burglars armed with blowtorches who pray on homes with uPVC doors. Blowtorches are used to expose the locks on these doors and proceed to break into the property as there is no protection.
In the vast majority of these cases, the targeted homes have had an expensive car on the driveway leading thieves to break into the homes and steal the car keys before taking the vehicle itself.
The police are said to be doing everything they can to track down and arrest the people who are committing these robberies. There are border patrols and ongoing investigations to find those who are responsible and bring them to justice.
However, Halifax Doors & Windows warns that by the time the police are involved it is too late to save your door and you will have to fork out for a new one – the last thing you want to do at this time of year. They encourage communities to come together to defeat crime and make it impossible for criminals to target your area.
It is recommended that you review your home security and consider having 3-star Ultion locks fitted to all of your external doors, especially if they are uPVC. These locks will add an extra level of security to your home as they are harder for criminals to take advantage of, so even if your door is attacked your possessions will be safe. Halifax Doors & Windows and Ultion are so confident in the security of the Ultion lock that it comes with a £1000 guarantee.
