Impact Windows Can Keep You Safer for Hurricane Season
Nearly 40 percent of all U.S. hurricanes make landfall in South Florida. That’s why with storm season only a few months away, it’s time to start thinking about protecting your home.
In fact, impact windows and doors––which have the ability to withstand violent hurricane-force winds and fast-moving debris––are one of the best ways to defend against a powerful storm.
It’s important to remember one is not more important than the other: Impact windows and doors work together to keep your home intact. As impact-grade windows protect against wind and wreckage flying through the air, reinforced doors guard against the outdoor pressure. Ensuring your home’s openings are securely closed will decrease the likelihood of indoor pressure and subsequent roof damage.
Plus, as most impact windows consist of several layers of glass or other synthetic materials that make shattering and penetration difficult, you’ll get protection from storms and increased home security against unwanted visitors.
With plenty of different brands and product types to choose from, opt for a personalized home consultation to determine the best choice for you and your home. From picture windows to cabana doors and stylish awnings, BNT Impact Windows and Doors carries the latest and greatest in impact innovation, including products from the industry-leading PGT Custom Windows + Doors.
Depending on the type and force of storm, there is no guarantee your home won’t sustain damage; however, installing impact windows and doors greatly decreases your home’s risk of indoor and outdoor damage when compared to other methods of protection, including shutters, plywood, or no shielding at all.
If you’re not sure where to start, schedule a consultation with our experts at BNT. They will be with you from start to finish, ensuring every impact window and door installed in your home is as you expected.
Pro tip: Don’t wait until the last moment to schedule a consultation. With hurricane season quickly approaching, call as soon as possible to make sure your installation is complete before it’s too late.
