When hurricane season arrives, you don’t want to be in a hurry trying to board up your windows and make sure your home or business is safe. It makes sense for us to start getting prepared early, whether it means getting out the tattered hurricane box from the garage, dusting off the generator, or doing the smart thing by investing in your home’s security and safety by installing high-impact glass windows and doors. In recent years, builders have made this glass standard in their home builds all over the state. Homeowners will breathe a sigh of relief because they now have this important safety layer in place. But what do you do if your home isn’t a new model and your wood doors can barely stand up to the winds produced from a tropical storm? A trusted company like Ameriglass Contractors can help with installing high-impact glass doors.
With all of the new, state-of-the-art glass technology available on the market today, high-impact glass doors are more efficient and affordable than ever. They are virtually shatterproof and unbreakable. High impact glass is made of “inner membrane glass.” This thick glass is comprised of two panels of glass pressed together, coated by a clear film of polyvinyl butyral, a substance that holds the glass together, should it shatter. Not only are they aesthetically beautiful, but this sturdy door glass will also give you and your family peace of mind for years to come.
Here are some of the reasons why high-impact glass doors make sense today:
- Keeps you safe from high winds
- Built-in security system to keep you and your family safe from theft
- Many customizable options and beautiful patterns to choose from
- Provides a sound-proof barrier in case you are near a noisy street or park
- Provides a layer of insulation
- Allows for privacy and also lets light in
- Lowers your insurance
- Increases the value of your property
