It’s beyond important to make sure that your home is hurricane ready in order to keep you and your family safe no matter what comes. Investing in hurricane windows not only increases the value of your home, but it’s the smartest decision you can make when it comes to preparing for the worst a storm can bring.
Impact Windows Have a Higher Advantage Over Regular Glass
There are structural and technical advantages when installing hurricane-resistant windows. Impact-windows keep windows and doors intact and prevent air pressure changes that usually causes devastating collapse when regular glass windows and doors blow out entirely during the severity and frequency of hurricanes. Moreover, after the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Andrew back in 1992, certain hurricane-prone areas have adopted a new American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) guidelines for windows to protect the structures from total collapse. They are designed to help houses survive category 5 hurricane. They offer great protection during the storm season.
Why Choose Hurricane Windows?
Hurricane windows may come at a higher price, but they’re worth every penny. They’re structurally designed to be able to withstand hurricane force winds, flying debris, and are resilient and unlikely to shatter in case a storm becomes too ferocious. After the devastating damages caused by Hurricane Andrew back in 1992, certain hurricane-prone areas have adopted new guidelines for buildings to protect the structures from total collapse. Hurricane windows have helped push these safety standards, as they are designed to help houses withstand category 5 hurricanes. It should go without saying that they offer great protection during the storm season.
