Securing Your Property: Essential Maintenance Tips for Doors and Windows

When it comes to property maintenance, ensuring the security of your doors and windows is of utmost importance. Properly maintained and secure entry points play a crucial role in safeguarding your property from unauthorized access, burglary, and other potential threats. In this article, we will provide essential maintenance tips for doors and windows to help you secure your property effectively.

1. Regular Inspection and Maintenance 

To keep your doors and windows secure, it's essential to conduct regular inspections and maintenance. Start by examining the condition of the door frames, hinges, locks, and handles. Look for any signs of wear and tear, loose screws, or damaged parts. Repair or replace any faulty components promptly to maintain the integrity of your entry points. SGPNOW’s network of vendors are available to assess any damages and provide bids to address.

2. Reinforce Entry Points

Strengthening the security of your doors and windows is vital to deter potential intruders. Consider installing deadbolt locks on exterior doors for added protection. Ensure that all locks are in good working condition and replace them if necessary. For windows, install window locks or key-operated security locks to prevent unauthorized opening. 

As a landlord or property manager, it is essential to change locks between renters or tenants to ensure the safety and security of those living at the property.  SGPNOW vendors are available to complete lock changes; visit to order services.

3. Add a Lockbox to Ensure Accessibility 

Installing a lockbox on your property is a great way to maintain security while offering accessibility when your property is on the market, whether for rent or for sale.  A lockbox gives you the ability to provide an access code to brokers or potential tenants in order to show the property without meeting to exchange keys.  

4. Boarding/Clear Boarding Broken Windows

In the unfortunate event that you do experience vandalism or natural accident that leaves your property unsecure, SGPNOW offers bolt boarding or clear boarding as options.  Both are available under the Property Securing section of our site and can be utilized as a fast solution to address a security issue.

Once you determine the extent of the damage, determine whether the full window will need to be replaced or if the pane can be reglazed.  Reglazing is an alternative option to new window installation that consists of replacing the glass and sealing it in place; it is often more affordable then full replacement.

Securing your property through proper maintenance of doors and windows is essential for protecting your investment and ensuring the safety of current and future occupants. Regular inspections, maintenance and lock changes are vital steps in enhancing property security. By following these essential maintenance tips, you can minimize the risk of unauthorized access and burglary.
