The Atlantic hurricane season is once again upon us, turning our thoughts to ways we can protect our coastal homes from Mother Nature’s wrath! Windows are one of the biggest causes of damage to homes and other buildings during tropical storm season. If your windows are not properly protected, we highly recommend you invest in some form of protection. Wind-borne debris can shatter windows and leave your home’s interior completely vulnerable to wind and rain. Wind can even enter through cracks or small holes around the window frame, and built-up air pressure inside the window frame can blow out windows and walls.
There are two ways to protect your home from these devastating scenarios. Installing custom-made plywood covers or storm shutters over all windows, skylights and doors with glass is the least expensive approach. If you have the budget for New Jersey window replacement, we strongly recommend you invest in the installation of impact-resistant windows from Harvey Building Products.
Harvey Vigilance impact-resistant windows were designed with rigorous coastal building codes in mind. While they can be used for other applications where added performance is desired, Vigilance windows were created to meet coastal building codes, among the most stringent in the industry. They provide exceptional storm protection from not only wind and rain, but also wind-borne debris, and can be used in both new building construction as well as replacement applications.
Aside from their beauty and strength, the installation of Harvey impact-resistant replacement windows will also help you save money on energy costs! We know you’ll love them year-round. Call Up and Above today at (973) 531-4225 to schedule a FREE in-home window estimate.
