Are Sash Windows Really Safe and Secure?

Windows are one of the most important and definitely one of the most overlooked aspects when it comes to home safety and security. Poorly secured, weakened by wear and weather, easily accessible instead of protecting the occupant from prying eyes or even uninvited visitors, they increase the risk of getting stuck, breaking the locks or being toeasy to open by the average burglar.
