Impact Windows Provide Better Storm Protection for Homes in Orange Beach, AL
Until the introduction of impact windows, homeowners in Orange Beach, Alabama, and other coastal areas had to struggle with the dilemma of when and how to cover their windows whenever a hurricane threatened their community. Should windows be boarded up as soon as a hurricane warning is sounded? That can mean spending days in a darkened home. What about permanently installed storm shutters? Those can be a bit unsightly, and you may not have time to secure them properly if a tropical windstorm whips up without notice.
Impact windows that look beautiful and offer year-round protection from high winds and heavy rainfall are the ideal alternative. That’s why NewSouth Window Solutions offers hurricane impact windows that are specially engineered to safeguard your coastal-area home from high-speed winds, flying debris, and heavy rainfall.
Anatomy of a NewSouth Impact Window
Our impact-resistant windows undergo extensive testing to make sure they meet the stringent requirements for protecting homes during Wind Zone 4 events, which are characterized by wind speeds greater than 170 mph. This is one of the reasons you can feel confident choosing impact windows from our company, but we’ll also be happy to provide you with details about our windows’ protective features, including:
- Laminated glass that consists of two pieces of extra-strong glass baked together with a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer
- Metal reinforcements in the premium vinyl frames
- Special engineering techniques to make sure that even if the glass shatters, the window won’t breach and allow wind and water to invade your home
You’ll also be able to trust our hurricane-resistant windows & installation services because our practices meet or exceed the industry standards. When you purchase impact windows from our company, they’ll be installed to meet our standards by factory-trained professionals whose expertise you can count on. You’ll also receive a lifetime warranty that covers both your replacement windows and their installation.
