Impact Windows Help Osprey, FL, Homes Handle Hurricane Season
When a Florida home doesn’t have impact windows installed, hurricane season brings high pressure for the homeowner—in more ways than one. We’ve seen many examples of this in over 40 years of serving Osprey, Florida, and much of the Sunshine State. That’s why, at Reece Windows & Doors, we recommend that anyone in the market for replacement windows chooses some that are built to endure our state’s worst weather events.
How Hurricane Windows Work
Like virtually any house window, impact windows have breakable glass. But what sets them apart from regular windows is that their glass panes are designed to break without shattering. Laminated glass keeps everything intact when a pane is struck with enough force that would shatter a normal window—which, in turn, would cause a major change in air pressure inside your home and result in serious damage.
Reece Windows & Doors installs impact windows manufactured by Conservation Windows, whose commitment to quality is second to none. Beyond their impact-rated glass, these windows:
- Are made of steel-reinforced vinyl, creating a frame that can handle tough weather without cracking, warping, rotting, and fading
- Exceed national ENERGY STAR® guidelines, making them the perfect choice for homeowners looking to increase energy efficiency
- Are available in several styles, including single- and double-hung, awning, casement, picture, sliding, and specialty
