With the start of hurricane season in 2020, a surprising number of Floridians still have not invested in impact windows and doors. Granted, there are many new residents in coastal areas that have yet to experience such a weather event. However, there is still time to increase your level of protection against any future hurricanes and tropical storms. Aside from the primary purpose of these products, there are several reasons to consider having impact-resistant windows and doors.
Decreases your energy consumption – impact windows and doors can significantly lower your monthly utility bills by reducing the strain on your HVAC system. The impact windows and doors installed by V&V Windows have a vacuum seal around them that helps keep cool air in during summer and warm air in during winter. With a multi-layer construction, our products reduce the number of solar rays that enter a home. This helps to keep your home better insulated, suiting different weather conditions throughout the year.
Improves your level of home security – burglaries and home invasions have become an all too common occurrence in many areas. Most burglars enter a home through its weakest points, namely the doors and windows. V&V Windows products fitted with impact-resistant glass can survive getting struck by flying debris in a hurricane. They have a multilayered glass that doesn’t shatter like normal glass, keeping your home and belongings safe.This means when burglars try to break in they’ll have a difficult time gaining access to your home.
Increases your home’s resale value – one of the most overlooked factors concerning impact windows and doors is the additional market value they add when it comes to selling your home. By showing that your home has been upgraded, it will increase the resale value to potential buyers.
Lowers your homeowner’s insurance premium rates – there are a number of factors that insurance companies take into consideration when conducting a risk assessment of your home and property. Two of these factors are storm protection and home security. Consequently, most insurance companies will offer discounted premium rates for those homeowners that have installed impact windows and doors.
Reduces exterior noise pollution – technology has evolved since the development of impact-resistant doors and windows. Another key reason to consider installing impact windows and doors is their soundproofing qualities. If you want to sleep through car noise, dogs barking, lawnmowers, and a range of other unpleasant sounds, impact-resistant doors and windows can significantly reduce them. That is why it is important to buy the best for your money.
