April 14, 2010
Homeowners living in regions susceptible to severe wind can install new windows that offer resistance to wind damage and impact related breakage. Research indicates that most windows damaged during wind storms are ruined by objects propelled by wind rather than wind itself. Designed to equal or surpass the performance of storm shutters, Storm resistant windows provide similar protection without compromising your home's appearance. Here are some additional benefits of installing new windows specially designed to withstand storm conditions:
Benefits of New Windows
- Impact resistance: storm resistant windows can survive your son's mean line drive, but damage from objects striking your windows can be reduced.
- Improve noise control: Storm resistant windows insulate your home against exterior noise.
- Home security: Windows designed to resist breakage can help improve your home's security against intruders. Damage resistant windows can enhance your home security efforts.
- 100 Percent UV protection: If you've had furniture or window treatments damaged by sun, installing storm resistant windows can help as they filter 100 percent of the sun's damaging UV rays.
Storm resistant windows are competitive in price with other high quality windows; ask window sales personnel to help you compare prices among new windows you're considering. Shopping for new windows online is a good place to start; you can compare window styles, prices and installation services from the comfort of your home.
