In the wake of Hurricane Irma, millions of Floridians were left with damaged homes and/or without power for days to weeks on end. We have received hundreds of calls from people all over Florida asking what they can do to better protect their homes better from hurricanes and severe storms. In this day and age, not all windows are built equal. Since 2001, home developers in Florida have been required to build homes strong enough to withstand hurricane-force winds no less than 111 miles per hour, with Miami-Dade and Broward Counties mandating an even higher standard of 130 miles per hour. Even with these standards in place, many areas do not require homes to have high-impact rated windows or patio doors.
If your home was built before 2001, your current windows or sliding glass doors have not been replaced or updated since then, or you are just looking for better protection against the elements, you may want to consider upgrading to impact-resistant windows and doors. Impact resistant-windows and patio doors give you piece of mind by offering a much higher level of protection than ordinary glass panes. Protection not only from severe weather, but also from burglary and forced entry attempts. Please see the video below for a brief demonstration of Simonton StormBreaker Plus® impact-resistant windows and patio doors:
