Why Impact Windows?
Each year, U.S properties experience hurricane season. In such occurrences, both residential and commercial properties are often susceptible to damage. Therefore, if you live in a hurricane-prone region, it is always essential to be ready for hurricanes. In this article, we discuss one of the ways of always being prepared: installing impact windows. From increased ROI to 24/7 protection, we outline some benefits of impact windows.
Impact windows are commonly referred to as storm or hurricane windows. Unlike traditional, single-pane windows, these windows have a Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) layer pressed between glass panes. These serve to prevent the window from shattering upon impact by flying storm debris. However, in more furious storms, the glass could break. Even if this happens, the glass sticks to the PVB layer instead of getting scattered across the floor.
