Do your windows double as shields of strength? If not window replacement might be something to consider.
Living minutes from Tampa Bay, we also have the Hillsborough River rolling through town. To top things off, our environment is perfect for the sand live oak trees to flourish.
In fact, we have more of them here than any other place in central Florida. It earned us a Tree City USA award. Of course, that doesn’t often spring to mind when their branches are ripped lose and become storm-debris.
Window replacement is on the costly side of home maintenance. However, when considering tackling the job, the benefits they provide tip the scale in their favor.
More than one way to protect
If you’re replacing the windows in your home, did you base your decision solely on added storm protection? It’s certainly the reason many Florida homeowners make the choice.
Installing impact windows definitely strengthens your home’s hurricane resistance. In fact, plans to implement stricter building codes to increase hurricane protection challenged window manufacturers to create them after Hurricane Andrew ripped Florida apart in 1992.
Thankfully, hurricanes are few and far between, but did you realize that impact windows serve your family year-round in other ways?
Guard against break-ins
Intruders intend to hit hard and fast.
Often that means gaining entry through a home’s windows. Replacing your windows with impact windows protects your home against their assault. The momentary look of surprise when the anticipated sound of smashing glass is replaced by a dull thud will quickly fade to dismay. Odds are they won’t be hanging around a moment longer.
Guard against energy loss
Window replacement protects your home against energy loss. We’ve all seen pictures of homes with dollar signs floating through the windows depicting energy loss. It’s a true representation.
Installing impact windows increases the energy efficiency of your home. Especially if you live in an older home, you may be surprised at the “comfort level” difference in your environment. And, you’ll definitely enjoy the savings you experience when the utility bills hit.
Impact windows do an excellent job of keeping the hot, muggy air outside and the cool air inside with you.
Sun faded furniture isn’t planned, but it happens. It’s hard to resist letting all that beautiful sunshine burst into our homes. We can pay the price for it though, huh? The sun can wreak havoc on our stuff.
Impact windows guard against the sun’s damaging UV rays. No more fretting over sun fade!
Neighborhood noise can impact our lives now and then, can’t it? Nothing worse than finally getting an opportunity to squeeze in an afternoon nap only to be so distracted by the mowers or the exuberant kids in the pool that you give up on the idea.
We understand the frustration.
If your window replacement includes an upgrade to impact windows, outside noises fade away.
Reece windows are impact resistant
At Reece, we build all of our windows to meet the FBC’s strict regulations regarding hurricane resistance. We’re committed to using high-quality materials and producing a high-quality product. Not only that, we install your new windows ourselves to guard against poor installation causing you future problems.
Living in Florida, we understand the added value they bring to a home. We want our customers to not only enjoy their new windows but to know that their family is safer because of them.
At Reece, we manufacture our windows using tempered glass and high-tech polymer. We sandwich the polymer between the panes of glass resulting in windows that are virtually shatter-proof. Even when struck by a nine-pound 2×4 shot from a cannon with enough force to cover a distance of fifty feet per second, our windows don’t come apart.
Believe it or not, that’s included in the test. The second test involves said cannon and steel ball bearings. Lastly, our windows are tested for wind and rain resistance.
