More Than Just Weathering The Storm: The Benefits Of Hurricane Windows

Living in a coastal region means living where your home is susceptible to hurricanes and other serious storms. Since hurricanes can bring severe winds and other damaging weather, your everyday windows just won't be enough to protect your home. Here are a few reasons to consider investing in hurricane windows instead.

Ultraviolet Ray Barrier

Your carpets, your furnishings and even the paint on your walls are vulnerable to damage from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Over time, direct exposure (even through the windows) will fade the colors and leave it all looking weathered. Hurricane windows provide an added layer of protection against ultraviolet rays, which makes it a worthwhile investment.

Mot hurricane windows provide that protection through the application of a layer of tint. There are many different types to choose from, which allows you to select how much light you want to let pass through.

Insurance Premium Savings

Whether you're insuring a home or condominium, hurricane windows can actually make you eligible for certain insurance premium discounts. By replacing all of the glass in your home with impact-resistant windows is often enough ti enhance your disaster preparations for a safety discount. Your insurance agent can tell you if there are any discounts available to you for your new windows.

Home Security Enhancement

The added safety barrier against storms also provides you with more protection against potential burglars. Hurricane windows come with a thin layer of film between the panes of glass, and that film prevents the windows from shattering. This makes it difficult for a would-be intruder to gain acess to your home through a broken window.

Minimal Transmission of Noise

If your home is in an area that sees a lot of traffic, the noise from outside can be bothersome. When you have hurricane windows installed, though, you'll find that the windows serve as a great barrier against the transmission of noise inside the home. It helps you create a calmer living environment. Whether you're experiencing noise at night that's disrupting your sleep or just a lot of disturbance during the day, the thick, insulated panes of glass in hurricane windows serve as a great barrier against the sound.

Coastal areas face a constant threat of storms, particularly hurricanes and similar weather threats. With the information here, you can see that hurricane windows protect your home from more than just those storms.
