Benefits of Hurricane Windows

Those of us in South Florida are all too familiar with destructive hurricanes. In September of 2017, Hurricane Irma caused more than $3 billion in property damage. It’s impossible to stop a hurricane, but it is possible to lessen its damage. Paradise Exteriors can help protect your home by installing impact windows, commonly known as hurricane windows in South Florida. These windows provide several benefits for South Florida residents.

1. Additional Protection

You probably already have hurricane shutters over your windows. Plenty of homes have them to prevent damage from flying debris. But hurricane windows provide additional protection.
These windows create a seal that prevents wind and water from seeping into your home. Debris also stays out because the glass might splinter, but it won’t shatter into pieces. Once your windows are installed, that’s it. They don’t require you to do anything special.

2. Protection from Robbery

Burglars often enter homes via a broken window. At Paradise Exteriors, we’ve replaced enough broken windows to know it’s a preferred entry method. Once the glass is broken, the thief can crawl through the window or reach inside and unlock a nearby door.
Impact windows are designed to withstand high speeds of wind and debris. And that means they are also likely to withstand a tossed brick or an attempted elbow through the window pane.

3. Save Money on Insurance

Installing hurricane windows can possibly lower your insurance premiums. Insurance companies like it when policyholders take steps to protect their property. Preventative measures are often rewarded with lower premiums.

Upgrading windows to impact windows is home improvement, but it increases safety. Other improvements include things such as burglar alarms, new locks, and storm doors. In South Florida, you might have homeowner’s insurance, hurricane insurance, and a separate policy for floods. Contact your insurance company to see if benefits are available.

4. Lower Your Energy Bill

Most people are surprised to learn impact windows save energy. We love to educate people about the safety aspects of hurricane windows. But we also should mention that the windows are energy efficient.

The windows have an excellent seal, much stronger than what you’d find on a traditional window. This seal prevents unwanted air from entering your home, and it also keeps unwanted air out. And the ultraviolet-resistant glass provides protection from harmful UV rays.

5. Improved Noise Reduction

Impact windows are good for noise reduction. You’ll appreciate this benefit if you live in an area with lots of noise. Perhaps you live near a busy intersection, have noisy neighbors, or live near the highway. Noise from outside is often distracting, and usually occurs during the most inopportune times. So in addition to protecting your home from hurricane dangers, these windows will make your home more quiet and peaceful.

Protect Your Property

There’s no doubt that South Florida residents can benefit from hurricane windows. This is one home improvement that will pay for itself over time. Less property damage and a lower power bill equals more money in your pocket. And also, remember that the shatter resistant glass adds an additional layer of security.

The team at Paradise kept in touch throughout the process - everything was perfect with the communication. Everything was taken care of during install. They picked up everything and the workers were cordial. I love the way they worked. The inspection went fine. It was definitely was a good choice to install the windows. The house stays cooler and my energy bill has gone down. I also don’t hear as much noise. I’ve sent my friends to Paradise a couple times already, and would recommend them again.

Extremely Knowledgeable sales rep as well as patient. Great product, can't wait for the windows to start saving on energy as well as making the house look great, updated and safe. Let me mention once again on the sales rep Santiago Munera, if not for his cool calm demeanor and running us through everything answering all our questions as well as our quirkiness. if not for him we would be with another contractor. We will definitely call for future projects.

I would give Paradise exteriors a 20 out of 10! The crew was amazing and I would love to speak to the owner about how top-notch the whole experience was for me. The installers were on time and courteous. They cleaned up their mess and clean my windows before they left. Afterwards, they did a thorough walk-through with me and showed me how to lock and operate everything properly. Overall everything was excellent! Wow!
