Recent research by the Home Office has found that ninety percent of home intrusions are opportunistic in nature. According to them, a building that has been burgled once – stands four times more chances to be broken into all over again. More than twenty percent of the premises belonging to commercial establishments are targeted by burglars every year in Ireland.
It is no surprise though, that detached properties are at a higher risk than those in better populated areas. The seclusion factor works in favour of the intruders, who prefer to work those premises that are at the end of a street, or next to alleys, parks, or waste yards. These spaces provide the criminals easy access, and prevent the closest neighbours from taking much notice. Although property owners might think otherwise, boundary walls, pickets, fences or bushes in or around the premises actually enhance the camouflage for burglars, instead of keeping them out.
When a break-in does happen, apart from the loss of goods and valuables, it leaves a trail of damage on the property. Most of this damage is taken by entry or exit points, ventilations, and other small openings in the building. Whatever is the case, it is the property owner who has to ultimately bear the brunt of it all, although insurance can take care of a part of the losses. At this point, what a home or office owner needs is a reliable locksmith service that can provide cost effective and long lasting window repairs and related services.
