Thinking of Installing Hurricane Windows? Here are 10 Good Reasons to Do It

If you live anywhere in South Florida, you know the need to protect your home during hurricane season. And there is nowhere that is more vulnerable than your glass windows and door openings. One of the best ways to protect these is with the installation of hurricane impact doors and windows. Need some good reasons? We’re glad you asked!

Protection Against Storms

Of course this is the most obvious reason. But unlike hurricane panels and shutters, impact-resistant windows and doors require no deployment. They are permanent and stress-free. And because it is glass, you know longer have more dark and dismal interior spaces to deal with.

Easy Operation

Or should we say, NO operation. They are just like regular windows and open and shut accordingly.

Savings on Insurance Premiums

Insurance companies are required to give discounts on premiums for windstorm coverage for hurricane mitigation measures you have taken. And who doesn’t want lower insurance premiums?

Reduced Energy Bills

And while you are saving on insurance, you are also saving on your energy bills. Hurricane windows and doors have added levels of insulation which is part of how they protect your home during a storm.

Extend the Life of Your HVAC System

While you are saving on your electric bills, you are also cutting down on the wear and tear on your HVAC system. The less it needs to work, the longer the longevity of the system.

Added Security

With that added insulation, you get added security. For the same reason your home is protected from dangerous projectiles during a storm, your local burglar will find it nearly impossible to break these windows and doors. Intruders will typically use the path of least resistance when breaking into a home which is usually doors and windows. With impact resistant options, a burglar will quickly understand that your home is no easy target.

Noise Reduction

With that added insulation also comes added noise reduction. Keep the outside noises outside and the inside noises inside. You can add peace and quiet to the monetary savings you get with hurricane windows and doors.

UV Protection

Hurricane windows are also an added barrier to damaging UV rays that will quickly face and break down things in your home such as fabrics, carpet, and wood.

Adds Resale Value

When you are looking to sell your home, impact windows will make your home much more enticing to a prospective buyer than one without impact windows. They may even choose to pay a bit more for your home.

Added Curb Appeal

Hurricane windows and doors are not only functionally beautiful, they are aesthetically beautiful.
