How to Choose the Right Impact Windows for Your Home

While South Florida is one of the most beautiful areas in the U.S to call home, it is often threatened by hurricanes and tropical storms.  So, it’s extremely important to focus on the safety and security of your family and home as well as your valuables and other belongings.  Whether you’re building a new home or purchasing an existing one, you should consider installing impact windows for added protection. And you know how unsafe it can be to try and weather a tropical storm without it.

If you’ve already thought about doing this and are ready to start shopping for the best products for your home, here are the three most common materials that these products are manufactured with:

Aluminum – the most widely used material for impact-resistant window frames in South Florida is aluminum.  This material is commonly associated with durability and longevity.  Our windows feature impact glass, heavy duty aluminum framing and secure glazing between these two elements in order to protect you and your family.

Vinyl – impact-resistant doors and windows constructed with vinyl frames have been in use for roughly 40 years.  Initially, they were advertised as wooden windows with vinyl surfaces.  Consequently, most vinyl framed doors and windows equipped with impact-resistant glass are extremely durable and long-lasting.  This type of frame isn’t as popular and widespread throughout Florida compared to other areas of the US.
