How Do Impact-Resistant Windows Protect Your Home?

People who live in Florida enjoy the sunshine roughly 2 out of every 3 days throughout the year. Naturally, there is a great deal of rainfall that can be very refreshing when it’s hot and humid outdoors. But despite the terrific year-round weather, residents must deal with hurricanes, especially during the months of June through November. Some of these storms have left millions of dollars of damage in their wake. So, if you live here, you want to ensure that you, your loved ones, and your home are protected by impact-resistant windows from V&V Windows.

If you’re a long-time Florida resident, you may already know the value of hurricane or impact-resistant windows.  If not, you’re probably wondering why you should invest in them. As the premier designer and manufacturer of impact doors and windows in the southeastern US, we can give you three reasons to consider investing in our products:

Impact-resistant windows won’t shatter on impact – one of the most dangerous and potentially life-threatening aspects of hurricane force winds is the flying debris that they often carry. Consequently, you never know if your home or its windows will be struck by this flying debris. If it does, and you only have standard glass in your windows, they could easily shatter, thereby allowing the debris and high force winds to enter your home and cause harm to you, your family, and your possessions.

Impact-resistant windows by V&V Windows will protect your home’s structural integrity – when a window on your home is broken in a hurricane or tropical storm, it causes pressure to build inside the structure. Since this pressure needs to find its way out, it typically rises. In the more severe weather conditions, this can damage the roof on your home or even blow it completely off the structure. Our hurricane windows and doors will remain intact when broken and protect the structural integrity of your home.

Impact-resistant windows protect against the heat in summer – the advantages of hurricane shatter-resistant windows go beyond protecting your family and home during a severe storm. They are also energy-efficient in that they keep the hot, humid air from entering your home while at the same time keeping the cool air indoors. This means that you and your family will be protected on those excessively hot days during the summer months late June through late September.

The complete product range that we have adheres to the building codes and impact glass quality standards to ensure you are safe when you install our products.
