In this detailed cost guide we walk you through everything you need to do know how much hurricane proof windows cost, the different types of hurricane windows and the pros and cons.
What are Hurricane Proof Windows?
Hurricane Windows are designed to receive impact, usually caused by severe weather – like a hurricane. The glass used to make these impact resistant is much like the glass found on the windshield of an automobile. Although they are extremely difficult to break, if they do, the glass will resist shattering and break into larger, less dangerous pieces.
Before impact glass was used for homes, it was mostly used to create windshield panels for cars. Auto makers were happy to find an impact resistant material to use during the automobile boom.
