Impact Window Installation in Broward County
Hurricanes are extremely scary, even to lifelong Florida residents. Unlike Tornados or Monsoons, one good thing about Hurricanes is that you have advanced noticed and can prepare for them ahead of time. This extends far beyond stocking clean water and pulling your patio chairs inside. In fact, did you know you can actually prepare for next Hurricane Season right now? It is true! You can have hurricane-resistant impact windows installed in advance of the high season and absolutely know that your Broward County home will be protected in the event of another major storm.
Hurricane-resistant windows, also known sometimes as storm-proof windows, are composed of impact resistant glass. These contain a layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) between two slabs of glass. The most effective type of impact-resistant window is the inner-membrane window. While these windows may shatter on impact during a higher-category storm, it will still remain attached to the inner membrane along with the window frame and not send pieces flying. This is why it is referred to as as “impact resistant” and not “shatter proof.”
Before you go any further, let’s look at some of the advantages of choosing this type of window:
#1 They come in different styles and sizes, so these windows are sure to look fantastic after being installed in your home.
#2 They provide permanent protection against all Florida storms, including minor tornadoes that sometimes pop up. Of course, this includes hurricanes as well.
#3 Its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. Instead, when glass cracks, it will create a ‘spider web-like’ pattern and doesn’t send debris flying. This keeps you, your family, your pets, and your neighbors much safer.
#4 They provide a much higher sound insulation rating due to its damping effect.
#5 These windows block 99% of transmitted UV light. That’s great for keeping your house nice and cool in the summer.
#6 Because they keep everything inside your home safer, due to the fact that they won’t shatter and let outside debris fly in, some insurance companies offer up to 45% discount on premium. Be sure to check and see if this applies to your homeowners policy.
They even bring benefits to you outside of Hurricane Season! This is due to the fact that they lower your electric bill year round, because your HVAC unit doesn’t need to work as hard to keep your home cool and comfortable.
These windows offer great protection during storm season and can be very useful to protect property. They may even be the reason you can get a reduced cost in your insurance plan.
