Are you Jeopardizing Your Family’s Safety?
Key reasons for installing new windows & doors
Have you assessed your South Florida home in the past year?
We’re not talking about the value of your home, nor are we talking about the aesthetics or the curb appeal. We’re talking about assessing your home for safety and protection from damaging hurricane force winds and rain and even burglaries.
Your windows and doors play an important role in protecting your home from strong storms as well as potential break-ins. Standard and builder-grade windows just aren’t strong enough to withstand high winds or flying debris. Moreover, standard windows are known as easy targets for burglers.
In contrast, specialized storm-proof windows provide the protection every South Florida home requires given the high winds and rain sustained during hurricane season. The closer you live to the water, the more critical your need for window protecion and safety.
Storm proof dual-layered windows and doors are designed to withstand coastal weather and prevent wind, wave, and water damage. Water may penetrate the first layer of glass, but the second layer can keep your property dry, averting major home damage and costs associated with flooding. Water damage not only can ruin your furniture, décor, and personal belongings, but it can also affect the structural integrity of your home. Consequently, dual-layered storm-proof windows and doors are especially valuable for homes on or in close proximity of the the ocean, the intercoastal, canals, or lakes, since dual-layers help prevent flooding.
In addition to providing an excellent barrier for storms, dual-layer glass in storm windows also provide protection from potential burglaries. The two layers of glass separated with an interlayer are difficult to break – even with a sledgehammer. Moreover, if a hurricane-impact window does break, it won’t shatter in small pieces as with standard glass panes. Rather, storm windows break by splintering and accordingly leave no opening for a potential burglar.
In addition, the noise alone of banging a tool against a strong storm window will alert neighbors, further deterring forced entry. Since burglars prefer easy access in homes or buildings with standard, easy-access windows, storm windows are an excellent deterrent for forced entry.
Whether defending against heavy winds, flying debris, and rain or potential break-ins, investing in hurricane-resistent storm windows is one of the best ways to protect your home and your family.
