Owning a home is a serious responsibility, and most homeowners view their homes as investments. They know that putting money into their property can increase its value and make them feel better about what they own. Homeowners also care about the security and protection of their families and any valuables they keep inside their homes. Though some rely on guard dogs and home alarm or security systems, others use security windows. Professionals specializing in Raleigh windows want homeowners to know that there are a number of options available that will work with the design and style of their homes.

People generally think of security windows in terms of those ugly metal bars found on some homes. While those bars might stop people from getting in, they will look out of place on most Raleigh homes. The city has a number of older Victorian homes and Queen Anne style homes that used leaded glass and stained glass windows. Covering those windows with metal bars might offer some protection, but those bars will also hide the beautiful look of the glass and may hide or potentially damage the cames used in those windows. Other options will protect the window without damaging the came.

One good option is a security film.

A windows installer from Otto's Exteriors of Raleigh NC would be happy to answer any question you have about gutters or entry doors.

This type of film is similar to the film used on some bulletproof car windows. It can withstand fast speeds and a high amount of pressure without breaking or causing the window to crack. Many homeowners love that these films come in clear designs that won't interfere with the style or design of their windows. Window films may also act as a soundproofing material to dull some of the noises that reach inside the house and lessen the noises that reach the street.

Bulletproof or shatterproof glass windows are another option. These are the same windows that celebrities and other famous people use in their own homes to protect themselves and their families. The windows can stop bullets, but the glass won't break when hit with a hammer or another heavy object either.

Those who use screen windows might opt for durable metal security screen windows too. The metal used in those designs is strong enough that it can stop some heavy objects and won't break when a burglar uses a knife to try and cut through the screen. The newest options in security windows protect the home without interfering with the design of that home.
