If you own an older Florida home, you may have a long list of remodeling projects to tackle. Naturally, your first concern is transforming your home into a structure that highlights your lifestyle and personality. However, when you live in Florida, upgrading your windows and doors to impact-resistant glass products should be your #1 priority. These exterior features are what will protect you, your family, and your belongings from hurricanes and tropical storms.
What Makes these Products different?
Hurricane impact windows and doors are made with impact-resistant glass that protect against the high winds generated by a hurricane or tropical storm as well as flying debris. With two layers of tempered glass surrounding an inner layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and framed with heavy duty aluminum, impact windows and doors from V&V Windows offer an added layer of protection and security for you and your family.
The atmospheric pressure generated by a hurricane as well as an intruder’s attempt at breaking the glass can cause it to spider web on impact. But, unlike standard windows, these products will not shatter inward. Another key concern is the wind-borne debris caused by hurricanes and tropical storms. If this debris were to shatter the windows in your home, the damage could be in the tens of thousands of dollars. Impact windows can help you stay safe even in the most inclement weather.
