Are Your Windows Ready for Hurricane Season?

Are Your Windows Ready for Hurricane Season?

All American Windows Has You Covered

In South Florida, Hurricane Season is a serious matter. Those who have experienced an exceptionally rough one know that it is not a matter of if a storm will hit but when. In the eye of Hurricane season, the windows of your home or business are especially vulnerable. Broken windows can result from flying debris or high winds, damaging your home’s contents and increasing the likelihood of severe structural damage. However, property damage is the least of your worries, because of the serious safety hazard broken windows and airborne projectiles pose to you and your family, or your co-workers and employees.

Residential Impact Windows Keep You Prepared for Hurricane Season

Living in South Florida can be beautiful, but we’ve all seen those traumatic post-storm images of someone’s home with broken windows and broken dreams. Hurricanes, tornadoes, strong winds – all of these weather patterns and more can wreak havoc on your home if you don’t have the right windows in place. Invest in your family’s peace of mind with the installation of proven, tested and guaranteed hurricane impact windows and doors. 

Commercial Impact Windows from AAW Keeps Businesses Secure

Choosing the right commercial impact window company in South Florida is paramount for your business. Not only do you want to protect all your hard work and investment(s), but most importantly you want to protect the people who work with you, those smiling faces you see on a daily basis and have come to know and love. From retail spaces to restaurants, warehouses to offices, no structure is insusceptible to the fury of hurricane-force winds. 

Think Window Choice Isn’t That Important? 

Think again! According to the International Hurricane Protection Association, once there is a break and winds get inside a home or business during a hurricane, the roof – and most of the structure – likely will not survive. Pressure build-up will cause these elements to separate, devastating a structure in a matter of minutes. Hurricane Season begins on June 1st, so if you’re reading this now, and you don’t have impact windows on your home or business, you’ve already fallen behind.

More Than Meets the Eye (of the Storm)

It’s not just about storms. Impact windows maximize energy efficiency, reduce noise infiltration and enhance the value of your home. It is also a strong deterrent to burglars looking to pilfer your home or business because they are far harder to break than ordinary window panes. Whether you are building a new house or making improvements to an existing property, let All American Windows help you feel safe and secure.

How Do Hurricane Impact Windows Work?

Impact-resistant windows, simply called impact windows, combine heavy-duty frames with impact-resistant laminated glass and a special silicone glazing to keep the glass from breaking away from its frame. Although wind-borne debris or an attempted break-in may crack the glass on impact, the interlayer keeps the overall window and door intact, preventing destructive winds or intruders from entering your home. Replacing traditional windows with impact-resistant windows will help both to gain the best energy efficiencies and to protect the envelope of your home.
