Features & Benifits
Gulf Breeze's extreme weather is asking more from our windows and doors than anywhere else in the country, especially for hurricane windows and doors. As a result, Florida’s window testing and the standards for hurricane rated windows and doors are the most strict in the US.
Also known as hurricane rated windows or impact resistant windows, these Four seasons products are built to resist the impact of flying junk as a result of strong hurricane winds. Also, having Hurricane windows installed eliminates the need to put up plywood during the stress of pre-hurricane preparations. Why is flying or wind debris so bad?
Most of the damage that occurs to a home during a hurricane is a result of broken openings on the home due to winds and flying junk such as branches or roof tiles. When the security of your home is compromised, the storm moves inside and that's when the real damage occurs. This can cause unwanted water damage but also can create pressurized conditions that can lift sections or all of your roof.
Lets face it, Hurricanes are always a concern, especially for us living along the Gulf. Impact-resistant windows are a choice for such places because they are less likely to breach even under extreme weather such as our last Hurricane season. Hurricane windows also known as Impact-windows may also be necessary for a home where the owner lives with small children or pets.
Falling asleep can be hard in a noisy environment. Highway traffic, barking dogs, late parties can all cause all sorts of noise pollution. Not only will they keep you up at night but cause disturbance during the day. Fortunately Hurricane windows will dampen the noise from the outside. High Impact windows are fitted with a polyvinyl membrane that absorbs noise. With impact glass windows, homeowners can live without worrying about noise distractions.
Being homeowners, we care about the security and structural features ofour home. Things like windows, foundation, and roof significantly change a property’s resale value. So in retrospect hurricane windows / impact glass windows installation can make your home more valuable. New windows can also get potential buyers into buying your property.
The tradeoff for mild fall and winter temperatures in Florida is a hot steamy summer. Living along the Gulf we often get a nice breeze during the winter, but it can feel like walking on the sun during the summer. A strong AC can help, but the cooling cost can get expensive. Installing Hurricane windows can help resolve this. These windows have multi-layers that can help reduce the heat getting into the home. Impact windows can help seal the heat inside your home, keeping you and your family cool.
Although Hurricane windows are the best defense from storms in the panhandle, maybe you just installed new windows but you still need window protection. Our home remodeling company can still help. We have an assortment of window protection products to keep your home safe and you worry free. We Install:
