Replacement Windows in San Jose Homes Can Help Prevent Burglaries
Burglary is one of the most prevalent crimes not just in California but across America as well. In fact, data from the FBI reveal that one burglary occurs somewhere in America every 15 seconds. As such, you’d do well to take all possible precautions to protect your home against this crime. One of the best things people can do is to install new windows in San Jose homes. After all, windows are the most fragile entry points to your home, and it doesn’t help that they’re usually shielded by privacy fences or trees—facts that any burglar will take advantage of. Wear and tear can compromise a window’s ability to latch or lock properly, and statistics show that thieves would much rather break into a home with an unlocked window than use force and possibly alert homeowners or neighbors.
