Does My Home Need Impact Windows?

With the hurricane season getting wilder every year it is of vital importance that your home and family has the protection they need. There is no way of telling if your home will become a victim of a hurricane so it is wise to prepare as much as you can. But does this mean that you need impact windows? What other options are available?

The Benefits of Impact Windows

Installing stronger windows in your home offers strong protection from hurricanes. They can withstand the wind, rain, and flying debris that a hurricane brings. However, that is not the only benefit they bring to your home. 

They are stronger and more convenient than using hurricane shutters or plywood. 


The strength of your hurricane windows also makes it harder for an intruder to force entry into your home. This means that by installing them you are providing your home with a deterrent to criminals. 

Energy Efficiency

Because of the design behind these windows, they are more energy efficient for your home. They can help keep the home cooler in the warmer months, while keeping that heat inside during the colder months. This helps you save money on your energy systems throughout the year. 


A side effect of Impact Windows is that your home has more soundproofing than a home without them. This means that you will not have to listen to the sound of traffic outside, nor will the neighbours complain about your singing. It’s a small thing that can improve the quality of your home life in a big way. 

Impact Windows in your Home

The bottom line, your home may be able to get by with hurricane shutters or plywood. But, when it comes to safety, impact windows cannot be beaten. Throw in all the other benefits of the impact windows and you’ll wonder how you ever managed without them.
