Protect your home with impact resistant glass
When factoring environmental risks into home purchasing and home building, protecting the building envelope is a top priority. Keeping what’s inside safe is integral. To do this, builders and homeowners often choose Impact Resistant Windows to keep the elements out.
Inside a home the goal is to keep unwanted wind and water out. With hurricane windows or high-impact glass windows it is possible to get the durability and functionality that protects a home against unwanted intrusion by the elements.
These windows do more than protect the inside of a home. They provide noise reduction, UV protection and often help to lower insurance premiums. In some states where windstorms and hurricanes are a risk, it is mandatory to have high-impact glass windows, something to consider before building in a windy environment.
