Impact Windows & Doors
Living in South Florida, you know that hurricanes are a likelihood. While the Florida Building Code has come a long way since Hurricane Andrew in requiring stronger door and window materials, true impact-resistant glass is not mandatory. Homes within one mile of the coast that are susceptible to winds of 110+MPH are required to have impact-resistant windows, or, the windows must be be “protected,” such as with approved hurricane shutters or storm panels.
Today, more homeowners are turning to impact glass for its superior storm protection, curb appeal, and energy savings.
