Keeping Our Neighborhoods Safe This Holiday Season

Holidays bring cheer and more people will be around your home. A wonderful time for everyone, including thieves, prowlers, trespassers and the like. We all get busier during this season and as such, might not be as mindful of activity that surrounds the home and community. People tend to travel more frequently in the months of November and December and empty homes are the perfect camp for intruders. These sorts will bank on the fact that you might not notice an extra person or vehicle in your neighborhood as you might in the less busy times.  Be aware of your surroundings and your neighbors’ travels. Notice if mail is piling up or if newspapers are left alone at any home and be extra open to unusual signs that might give rise to concern. If something stands apart, report it to the local police department. This all may seem logical, but in today’s hurried times, we each get caught up in our own schedules and activities and tend to forget what goes on around us.

When you decorate the outside of your home, notice if shrubberies are blocking the front of your house. An area hidden by bushes will breed the perfect hiding place for an intruder. Be sure that all windows and doors are locked at all times. You should check the locks periodically — sometimes, a window may not be locked properly and you will not know this until you check it out. Be sure to lock your vehicle doors as well — why make it easy on the criminal?

Don’t be a victim due to an unsecured home or unlocked vehicle. Take precautions to ensure that you celebrate your Holidays peacefully. If you have questions on your home improvements this season, be sure to call on the experts at Windows Plus at 703-956-6172. We provide outstanding service for your windows, doors, siding and roofing and are proud to service your communities for over two decades. Thank you to all of our customers — your referrals and repeat business are the backbone of our company. Wishing you an outstanding celebration this season, The Staff at Windows Plus.


Check Out Safety Tips

Per the Fairfax County Crime Prevention Officers, here are some tips for greater safety for you, your home, and your property. Always take precautions — you cannot be too safe.

No matter what vehicle you drive, you should always make sure it is locked:

·        Purchase wheel locks and locking lug nuts;

·        Park in well-lit areas and utilize your security features;

·        Be attentive in late night hours whether driving in your neighborhood or up to get a midnight snack….peer outside; and

·        Stay active in Neighborhood Watch.

When leaving your home whether for an hour, a day or longer, check that all windows and doors are secured. Make sure that you leave an impression that someone is home–have neighbors aware of your absence and ask them to check on your house. Make arrangements for your mail and newspapers — abandoned papers scattered around a home are a clear sign of absence. The careless homeowner will be an easy target.

Contact Windows Plus at 703-956-6172 or windowsplus@windowspls.com for greater tips on window and door safety. We offer many outstanding glass packages that will enhance your home and protect you in greater ways.

Wishing you a fantastic rest of your summer. Stay tuned four more tips along the way, AND, thank you for your business always.

 

 

 

 


Credits Available for 2012 Improvements

Hot news concerning the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012–energy tax credits for windows, doors, skylights and more are again available for qualifying purchases. The 25C  homeowner credits are retroactive for 2012 and extend through 2013.  Information on the 2012 Residential Energy Credits, Form 5695, is available through the website for Internal Revenue Service.  Details on the extended homeowner tax credits and builder tax credits  are also available from Dsire, a database of renewable and efficiency incentive programs sponsored by the Department of Energy. This information is not yet available through the EnergyStar website, but promises to be so in the near future.

This move by Congress shows a great potential for increased home improvement projects this year and upswings in the housing market; hopefully, this important move by Congress will serve to lessen any doubts by the homeowner on the benefits of energy efficient products in the home.  Clearly, energy efficiency is a thriving topic and it appears that the 113th Congress will continue to advance legislation appropriately. Bipartisan work at its best!
