Check Your Door Security 


Before the nights start to draw in again, now is the perfect time of year to check the security of your doors. First, check if there is a need to replace or repair the locks on your front and back doors and make sure they are in good working order. What are your doors made of? Do they fit properly and do they raise any security concerns? 


At Croft, we have a doors showroom in Preston with a range of top quality secure doors. From uPVC, Rockdoors high quality composite doors in a range of colours and styles to Spitfire premium Aluminium doors, we have something to suit all tastes. 


The latest secure doors don’t need to look uninviting. From cottage doors to stable doors, we have something to suit all house styles while also offering maximum security and peace of mind. If you feel you need to replace a vulnerable door weak spot in your home, just give us a call and we can put your mind at ease.


Check Your Window Security 


Take a few minutes to go around your house and check all your windows. Do you have the correct keys in the right place? Do the locks work? Are the window frames in good working order? Were the windows installed by a trusted supplier to the best industry standards? What are your windows made of? 


From a security perspective, windows are unfortunately a weak spot for some homes so it is important to keep up to date with the latest construction technology to keep your homes secure. In our Preston window showroom, we can demonstrate the latest technology to keep your home warm, cosy and secure.
