We are finally in June, and you know what that means… we are officially in Hurricane Season. What does this mean for us Floridians? We must prepare and protect our properties. At TruGrit Roofing, we are here to make sure that you have all the information you need to keep your home protected. It is time to talk about impact windows!

What Are Impact Windows

Windows that are marketed as hurricane-resistant or storm-proof are constructed with impact-resistant glass treated with a layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). While this impact-resistant glass will probably still shatter upon strong impact from flying objects, it generally remains attached to the inner membrane and the window frame. When they break, these windows crack in a fine, spider-web pattern rather than sending out flying shards of glass.

With an ordinary window, it can be made more resistant to shattering by adding a surface membrane that covers the window glass. This will improve the shatter-resistant quality of the window. Although, it does not have the same effect that a genuine hurricane resistant window will have. Ask our professionals about the impact window installation.

It Is Worth The Investment

While the upfront price for hurricane windows might be daunting, it is a significant investment into your property here in Miami. Due to the hurricane season, a home with this type of security protection does much better on the market. By upgrading your windows, it increases the overall value of your home tremendously as this is quickly becoming the new standard for homes. It’s essential to protect your property and windows are often the weakest links in a home. By installing hurricane resistant windows, you are eliminating the problem from your home and making it more appealing. The investment is well worth it!

Due to the strength and thickness of these windows, they are created to endure damage from a category five hurricane. This feature makes the windows impenetrable and protects all year long from potential break-ins. These windows make it impossible for intruders to enter your home through your windows. Impact resistant windows are also custom fitted for your home.
