Why Choose Impact Windows to Protect your Home?
Impact windows and doors—What are they? Why are they important? Why should you consider purchasing them for your home? These are the questions our clients ask when they are shopping for new windows and doors. The reasons why impact windows and doors are so effective, and why they are worth the investment, are varied: in addition to superior protection from extreme weather conditions, impact windows and doors offer protection against other intrusions—burglars, and noise pollution for example. Hurricane damage can be devastating. When debris from high wind storms become penetrating projectiles, ordinary windows and doors fail. When a failure occurs during a storm, the pressure difference between inside and outside of your residence can cause significant structural damage in seconds. Blowing rain in high wind storms can actually penetrate your home and deposit a large amount of water causing thousands of dollars of damage even if your window and doors don’t break. Impact windows and doors provide a safe and secure storm barrier from wind blown projectiles and blowing rain. Florida’s Best provides affordable category 5 protection.
