General Questions

The short answer is to provide better protection in the event of a hurricane. Hurricane impact windows hold up better to the high-speed winds and high-impact forces that hurricanes present. If you reside in an area prone to hurricanes, it’s smart to spend the money to protect your residential or commercial property and to keep you and others safe. The amount of damage that hurricane-rated windows can prevent makes them worth the cost.

Simply adding shutters to your existing windows is not recommended because you don’t get the same level of protection as you would from hurricane windows. You simply get an extra layer of protection from the shutters, but it isn’t as effective. If the shutters are torn off in the storm, then you’re still left with your standard windows, which can easily break into large glass shards from the wind.

Yes, adding hurricane windows can drastically increase your home’s value. That said, when you sell your property, the upgraded hurricane windows will be a great selling point.

Being accredited by the Better Business Bureau means the BBB has determined that they meet accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good-faith effort to resolve any consumer issues.

Aside from providing protection against hurricanes and its effects, hurricane windows have numerous other benefits. When you install hurricane windows in your home or building, you increase its value. These windows also make your home or business more energy efficient because your property is better insulated. This will save you money on heating and cooling costs.

Because of the protection they offer, hurricane windows also protect you from home intrusion. Burglars cannot penetrate the glass of hurricane windows like they can with standard windows. And even if they manage to break the glass, the glass won’t shatter apart into large shards, which can make the situation more dangerous.
