If you love living in South Florida, you’re certainly not alone. From the sunshine to our mild winters, there are many things to love about living in this area. Yet, it’s not all perfect here in paradise. Every summer, the weather alerts begin. It’s hurricane season! Our area is hit with major storm after major storm in the late summer and early fall. This is why so many of your friends and neighbors have opted to install impact windows in their home. Doing so offers numerous benefits! Just a few of the top benefits of impact windows include:
#1 One Time Installation
You don’t need to be told what a nightmare it is to run to Home Depot or Lowe’s when the weather channel says Miami is in a possible hurricane path. Even if you have hurricane shutters, it can be downright impossible to hire a handyman to put them up in time. You’re competing with everyone else in the area for their time. Once impact windows are installed, there’s nothing else you need to do to prepare your home for the hurricane. Hurricane impact windows provide continuous protection from the moment they’re installed.
#2 Insurance Premium Discounts
You’re not the only one who is excited by the fact that your home won’t be damaged by a hurricane. Installing impact windows and doors in your home often means significant reductions to your insurance premiums. They won’t need to pay to replace broken windows and the wind damage inside, and they reward you for it!
#3 Increased Security
Stronger windows are beneficial year-round, not just during hurricane season. Not only do impact windows and doors protect you from flying debris during a windy storm, but they also protect your home from burglars attempting to break in. If a hurricane can’t smash a tree limb through the window, you can bet a person can’t break in with a tool either.
#4 Outside Noise Reduction
In addition to protecting your home from exterior damage, impact windows and doors can significantly decrease the level of noise from the outside. They’re stronger and thicker, keeping traffic and other outside noise to a minimum.
#5 UV Protection
The sun here in South Florida is fierce! Impact windows provide protection from ultraviolet (UV) light which causes damage to fabrics, artwork, photographs, and paint. Plus, this intense sunlight makes your house hotter. Keeping it cool lowers your monthly electric bill.
#6 Better Resale Value
Hurricane windows improve the value of your home. You’re not the only one who wants these benefits! New windows improve the curbside appeal of the house, making it easier to sell when the time comes. Plus, potential buyers will be happy to hear they don’t need to worry about installing hurricane shutters or running out for plywood.
