Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors for Homes

What Are Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors

Hurricane impact windows and doors are designed to withstand high winds, flying debris, and rain

When a hurricane is approaching, homeowners are often advised to shutter their windows and secure their homes as much as possible. But once the storm passes and it's safe to leave your shelter, you'll want to protect your home from future storms by installing hurricane impact windows or doors

What Are Hurricane Impact Windows

Hurricane impact windows are made of special glass that can withstand extreme weather conditions. The glass may be laminated or tempered for extra strength and durability. The frames of hurricane impact windows are also specially designed with steel or aluminum frames that can withstand strong winds and flying debris. When installed correctly, these windows will remain intact even if they are broken by high winds during a hurricane or other severe storm event

What Are Hurricane Impact Doors

Hurricane impact doors are similar to hurricane impact windows in that they have steel frames that can withstand high winds and flying debris during severe weather events like hurricanes or tornadoes. However, instead of being made with glass panes like hurricane impact windows, they're made with solid panels of wood or vinyl composite material instead. These solid panels provide better protection against hurricanes because they don't break easily like windowpanes

Is It Worth the Cost to Invest in Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors

Hurricane impact windows and doors are designed to resist wind, rain and flying debris. They are available in various styles, including single hung, double hung, casement and sliding. The choice of a specific window or door style depends on your needs and preferences

If you live in an area prone to hurricanes or other severe weather, hurricane impact windows and doors can help protect your home*s interior from damage caused by high winds and flooding. They also provide extra insulation against extreme temperatures

However, these products are expensive compared with standard storm protection devices such as shutters. You might not want to invest in them if you live in an area that rarely experiences severe storms or have only one or two windows in need of protection

How Do I Find the Right Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors

It's a good idea to get some quotes from hurricane impact windows and doors manufacturers before you make your decision. And you might want to talk with your insurance company about what they recommend

Here are some things to think about

Size and shape of the openings. You'll need to know the size and shape of each opening that needs to be replaced, so you can find the right replacement. It's best to get measurements from an experienced professional who can advise you on what will fit best

Protection level. The type of protection offered by a window or door is measured in "pounds per square inch" (PSI), which represents how much pressure it can withstand before breaking or bending. For example, a hurricane impact window with a 30 PSI rating means it can withstand winds up to 130 miles per hour without failing 〞 or until winds reach 50 miles per hour less than its rating. You'll find these ratings listed prominently on any hurricane impact windows or doors that are designed for this purpose.
