With summer approaching, homeowners may be more likely to leave their windows open to enjoy the warm breeze. Unfortunately, while it may be pleasant, open windows may make a home more susceptible to burglaries. A new window screen, however, may eliminate this problem.

According to KSFY.com, new screens are being manufactured that can resist baseball bats, crowbars and bricks. While the screens were developed to be installed in homes where hurricanes happen often, the crime-proof nature of the window covering should not be denied.

With a screen such as this, homeowners may be able to safely enjoy the summer breeze. If windows will remain open during summer months, individuals might consider hanging wood blinds to decorate the room as they take advantage of the beautiful weather.

Wood blinds offer protection from the harsh summer sun while allowing outside air to pass through the slats. This cool window treatment also infuses rooms with the cool, natural beauty inherent to timber.

Homeowners who open their windows during summertime should remember to lock the windows and shut the blinds before bedtime, as HomeSecurity.net reports that 23 percent of burglars gain access through first-floor windows.
