Hurricanes in South Florida are like rain in Seattle; we see them often enough that we probably don’t prepare—mentally and physically—as much as we should. We know the drill: water, non-perishables, a generator, flashlights, and candles, but what about hurricane windows? You may have shutters and think that’s enough, but you’re missing out on some key benefits of hurricane impact windows.
You Don’t Have to Sit In the Dark
Sitting in the dark for a few hours isn’t bad, but you’ll have to put up your shutters a day or two before the hurricane actually hits which will have you living in darkness. With shutters, you’re blocked out from all sunlight with no idea what is going on outside your home or what damage is being done. You’ll hear strange noises and loud bangs which leads to unnecessary anxiety in an already scary situation. With impact windows, you’ll get to enjoy some light without power, and you’ll be able to see outside, making the whole ordeal much less frightening and unpredictable.
You’ll Always Be Prepared
Hurricanes are unpredictable, and the path and severity can change at any moment. With impact windows, long gone are the days of panic while frantically attempting to gather up the troops and get those shutters up to protect your home. Hurricane impact windows are ready when you are, always up and prepared to protect you and your loved ones, no set up necessary. All you’ll have to worry about is running to your local Publix to grab water before they all run out.
Blocks 99% of Transmitted UV Light
Who knows sunburn better than those living in the sunshine state? If you’ve ever fallen asleep against a car window, you know all too well that UV light can penetrate windows. Since we’re right near the equator, our sun rays are particularly intense. As much as we’re told over and over again to always wear sunscreen, most people don’t—especially not in their own home. Protect you and your family from the sun’s harmful rays year-round with hurricane windows on your home.
