Storm Proof Windows

Something many people consider in South Florida is getting storm proof windows. You may not put up your shutters a lot, but when you do, you probably dislike every minute of it. For one, it's hot and humid out during hurricane season, so putting up shutters in the heat is no sweat-free task.

Why should I invest in new windows?

The shutters also require quite a bit of effort. You have to roll them over the window just right, align them properly, fasten them, and then make sure they’re secure. The worst part is, you have to do this for every window.

This makes the entire process time-consuming. And, the hurricane you are preparing for may not even hit or be as dangerous as predicted. The only way to avoid this dreadful task is to invest in storm proof windows in West Palm Beach, Florida.

At Statewide Windows & Doors, we know how many options you have protection and we understand how difficult it can be deciding which option may be best for you and your family.


HERE ARE A FEW COMMON CONCERNS PEOPLE HAVE WHEN CONSIDERING THEIR OPTIONS:


HURRICANE WINDOWS AND SHUTTERS DON’T DO THE SAME THING

One reason people do not make the switch from shutters to windows is because of the notion that they do the same thing. However, this could not be farther from the truth. While both the windows and the shutters will protect your home, the windows do much more than that. The windows, first and foremost, offer more protection as they have more layers. But, they also offer protection from intruders. No one can enter a home through a storm proof window. Even with the layers broken through, there is not enough room for a human to squeeze through the window. Also, the hurricane windows can lower UV rays in your home, potentially lowering your electric bill. They also can save you money on your insurance. Having shutters do not give you these discounts.

STORM WINDOWS ARE NOT “HURRICANE PROOF”

The one misconception that everyone should have cleared up is that storm windows are hurricane proof. The windows are hurricane resistant, meaning that they will protect your home from storms. But, the glass on the exterior can still shatter. However, it isn't going to form a big hole. It will instead look more like a spider web of glass. The reason people think the windows are storm proof is that the exterior glass breaking won't break the second dense layer. It's still vital to know that there is a difference between the word proof and resistant. Despite the windows being resistant, you can still depend on them to protect your home.

STORM WINDOWS WILL BE BULKY OR UNAPPEALING

One reason people choose not to get storm proof windows in West Palm Beach, Florida, is because of the way they think they look. People seem to think that the hurricane windows are unappealing to look at and only come in chunky styles. However, hurricane windows have come a long way in recent years. What once may have been the signature chunky window now comes in many delicate and elegant styles. You can even get hurricane windows put in for windows with unique shapes. The window does not need to be an ordinary square. The windows can be hexagons, octagons, circles, and more. You can also choose from different colors. Stormproof windows in West Palm Beach, Florida, have never been more appealing looking than they are now. If the way the windows have looked were the only thing putting you off to the windows, you no longer have to worry about that. At Statewide Windows & Doors, we have storm proof windows that can meet your aesthetic needs.
