Its been a good start to the year for A.R Locksmiths, been very busy since the turn of the year with Upvc repairs.
Over the last couple of weeks I've had many calls from customers that have been having problems with their Upvc products.
Maybe its down to the weather and maybe its just that time of the year but either way its kept me busy.
I've had various window repairs, the lock, window friction stays (hinges), and window handles to name a few and then door repairs which have mainly been the gearboxes on the multipoint locks breaking. So instead of repairing the lock it is easier to order a new multipoint lock, identical to the old one and then it is a simple swap.
Something else that interested me this week was a few stats the Home security month put on their twitter page.
1- Research by neighbourhood watch revealed that two thirds of brits don't change their locks when they move home. And of those 86% don't even consider it.
2- The average cost of domestic burglaries has risen by more than 40% over the last three years, according to research from Zurich insurance uk.
Two Stats that caught my eye, i'm shocked that people still don't change their locks if they move house. Yon never know who the previous owner gave keys too, and maybe even the home owner before that. 5 or more people that you don't know might have keys to your new house.
