The Security, Storm and Sound benefits of installing insulated impact windows
Mike has been in the whole construction business for probably 20 years.
I consider him an expert on these PGT WinGuard™ impact windows and I asked him to share this video and come in today to talk to us a little bit about the benefits of these impact windows and what you as a homeowner should be looking for when selecting the right impact window?
So you get all those benefits, security, temperature, hurricane resistance impact, there is no need to cover these windows with shutters, with accordions, with panels, with wood, they meet the same standard that all of those products do, that’s how they’re tested, they shoot a 2 × 4 at this window, very similarly the way they shoot it at a standard accordion awning or at aluminum panel shutter that goes over your window, they meet the same test, that’s what qualifies them. Visit Rapid Construction our other blog post that shows an actual 2X4 shooting into a window.
Overall, they’re great products, well worth the investment in your home, if you’re planning on being their a long time, I would not only recommend upgrading to an impact window but also an insulated glass window with a Low-E, get the highest efficiency, make your home as efficient as you can.
Thanks for viewing and have a safe 2018 hurricane season.
