Why are Impact Windows Needed for Hurricane Protection?

If not properly protected, the doors and windows as well as the roof of your home can suffer the most damage in the wake of a hurricane.  If you haven’t installed impact windows and doors, you could be looking at tens of thousands of dollars in damages.  With that in mind, people often ask “Are hurricane shutters the only reliable form of protection available?” The answer is NO.  Another and more effective way to protect your home from damaging winds and flying debris are impact windows and doors.

Preventing damage to your South Florida home during a hurricane may seem like a daunting task, especially if you live along the coast or in areas that are prone to high velocity hurricanes.  Granted, there are certain steps that homeowners can take in order to protect their windows such as hurricane shutters or plywood.  However, impact windows are more efficient and reliable, not to mention hassle-free once they’re installed.  It goes without saying that they provide the best value for the investment.

Increased Window Protection with Impact-resistant Glass

Forget about plywood and shutters.  If you want to ensure that flying debris and strong winds won’t shatter your windows, V&V Windows impact-resistant products are the way to go.  Increased protection against hurricane winds and flying debris are just part of the story.  With our products it’s all about their construction and the benefits they provide as a result.

Our impact windows are comprised of two layers of glass laminated together with a layer of PVB (Polyvinyl butyral) in a heavy-duty extruded aluminum frame for superior shatter resistance and strength.  In addition to their construction, our impact-resistant windows provide the following benefits:

  • Easy to clean
  • Elegant design
  • Energy efficiency
  • Noise reduction
  • UV protection

For seasonal travelers and “snowbirds” who spend their winters in South Florida, our impact windows give them peace of mind knowing that their homes are protected during the stormy season while they’re back in their home state.

Added Security

In addition to the benefits above, V&V Windows impact-resistant products provide an extra layer of security against burglaries and home invasions, a very important fact considering the holidays are drawing near.  Rather than shattering inward, the shards of broken glass adhere to the PVB layer between the two glass panes whenever a thief attempts to break in through a window.  Since it takes longer for them to break into your home, they run the risk of getting caught in the act.
