Windstorm Impact Resistant Windows and Doors
Living by the beach has many benefits, especially when the sun is shining and there’s not a cloud in sight. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. For homeowners who live in the Gulf Coast region or hurricane-prone areas, it’s important to have windstorm impact-resistant windows and doors to protect your home.
Custom Windows offers a number of hurricane impact and wind resistant products for you to choose for your home. Top window manufacturers such as Sierra Pacific, MI, and Alside have a variety of windows and patio doors that will meet the building codes of your region.
Choose from upgraded glass options, reinforced mulls and frames, and high design pressure (DP) rating building products to reliably withstand severe weather conditions.
Additional Benefits of Coastal Windows
Impact-rated windows are designed with a laminated glass unit that can reduce noise even more than traditional windows. By absorbing low frequencies, your home can be quieter for years to come.
In addition to hurricane-force winds and wind-blown debris, the laminated glass can double as protection from intruders. The glass may crack during a forced entry attempt, but the laminate layer holds the glass in place and requires a knife to cut through completely.
UV Ray Protection
The laminate glass blocks on coastal windows also offers a level of protection against UV rays. Instead of having faded carpet or furniture, your windows can help block over 99% of damaging ultraviolet rays.
WINDSTORM AREAS IN THE U.S.
Do you live in one of the three Windstorm zones defined by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI)?
If you are located in one of these windstorm areas, it’s crucial for your home to have windows and doors that have an impact-resistant glass. In the case of a severe weather storm, being prepared is your first defense toward loss of property or unsafe conditions.
For your safety, also review the TDI Map indicating the windstorm areas, specifically the Seaward, Inland I, and Inland II zones. Every zone has individual requirements for homes to follow.
