HOW IMPORTANT ARE WINDOW GUARDS?

I felt compelled to share a Facebook post that was originally posted by Rocky Banks with Pillar to Post at https://rockybanks.pillartopost.com/, a very solid home inspection company in Montgomery County, MD.  I've always recommended that my clients install window guards to protect their children (and pets).  And not just windows on mid-level or high rise condo/apt buildings, but ANY property that has windows above the first level.  And...in some cases, it might even make sense to install window guards on first-level windows to prevent a toddler from exiting the home without your knowledge.  I don't think this is a good idea.  I think it's a great idea.  Thanks Rocky for sharing this valuable information for all homeowners and tenants!!!  Call me at 240-234-1000 or email me at jamie@gotagent.com with any of your real estate needs in MD, DC or VA.

Window guards aren’t really something people think about but you’ve given them something to chew on and that’s pretty darn good I would say!

Thanks Laura.  When my kids were little, I was always afraid that they would find a way out of a second story window so I would take extra precautions on those windows.  Too bad I couldn't get away with those extra precautions when they turned in to teenagers!
