Beautiful Windows Engineered for Strength and Durability
Florida homeowners know the importance of impact windows. The state is regularly hit with hurricanes as well as tropical storms. Apart from strong winds and heavy rains, homeowners also have to contend with year-round heat and humidity.
Impact windows are built to withstand not just daily wear-and-tear but also gale-force winds that would shatter regular windows. Unlike conventional window glass, impact glass—with its multiple layers—does not break in dangerous, jagged shards.
Instead, the outer, protective layer glass keeps broken glass connected to the window’s membrane. This helps ensure that your home and loved ones are protected from accidents resulting from broken windows during a hurricane.
However, just because impact windows are strong and sturdy doesn’t mean they have to be bulky and unattractive. Impact windows come in a wide range of styles, types, and sizes to suit any exterior design scheme.
You can choose from single-hung, double-hung, casement, fixed picture, and more. Whichever you choose, you can be confident that they will effectively protect your interiors from windborne debris while adding beauty to your home.
Other advantages of impact windows are:
- They protect furniture and carpets from fading caused by sunlight exposure
- Impact windows help with insulation by keeping out drafts and keeping in air-conditioned air
- They’re difficult to break, which can help deter would-be burglars
- Impact windows help insulate your home against street noise
- Having them installed means you get a discount on home insurance premiums, according to Florida law
Homes within one mile of the coast are required to have impact windows installed. However, even if you live more than a mile from the ocean, it’s still a good idea to have them.
You can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your windows won’t shatter if a storm reaches your area.
