Benefits of Impact Glass

 

There are many different advantages that come with Impact glass. For example, some of these advantages include cutting costs on your power bill, cutting down on outside noise coming in, deterring intruders, and lowering the amount  of damage that can come from hurricane weather. Best known for its functions on windows and doors, impact glass is able to replace the need for hurricane shutters as long as there is proper impact window installation. But impact glass isn’t just great in hurricane weather. Having impact glass installed in your home has a lot of benefits during normal weather as well, as it can help secure the home from any potential shattered glass and can protect against potential intruders as well, as impact glass does not shatter as easily as regular glass. Think about this situation- an intruder attempts to enter your home or business, and they are unable to break the impact glass easily. This will likely cause them to abandon the effort.

 

Noise Canceling Windows

 

If you’re ever been abruptly awakened by a loud neighbor when planning a luxurious sleep on a Sunday morning, or live in a busy urban area where you are constantly being bombarded by traffic and noise pollution, then you will recognize the advantages of windows that help to block out noise. Maybe you reside in a suburban neighborhood where houses are all being built closer together and in closer proximity to highways. There is an expanding demand for sound-reduction solutions for homes, as noise complaints such as those discussed above has become more and more typical. The answer to all of these problems are impact windows. As a homeowner, one of the things that you look most forwards to when coming home is being able to have a place where you can quietly relax whenever you want to. Although it’s rare that somebody picks impact windows with only the goal of noise reduction in mind, it is still a fantastic benefit that you should keep in mind when choose windows for your next project.

Learn About The 6 Impact Door Styles We Offer

Are you looking for the perfect door that will complement both the interior and exterior of your home? The professionals at Florida Engineered Glass Corp. are proud to offer impact front doors and hurricane doors FL residents love. We are located in Miami.

 

What Makes Impact Doors Different

The average entry door is generally constructed of two steel facings and an insulating filler. Many entry doors also include a solid wood block where the handle and lock attach for added security. Standard door frames are made of wood or aluminum. While this construction is generally safe, those that live in areas that may be impacted by hurricanes or tropical storms should consider a higher level of protection. A standard door is going to be sorely tested when the intense winds, that accompany a hurricane, start to swirl.

 

Impact doors, on the other hand, are made of materials that have been tested and approved to withstand the most severe weather conditions. Composed of thick, fiberglass skins with wood and composite reinforcements, impact doors have specialized polyurethane foam cores that will better protect you and your family in the event of a storm. Reinforced hinges and beefed up door frames ensure the door isn’t going anywhere, under any conditions.

 

Hurricane Doors FL Residents Can Trust

We offer doors that can pass the most rigorous of wind and impact tests, conforming to the strictest of Florida building codes. Brands like CGI and ThermaTru test their impact doors with the worst-case scenario in mind – launching a 9lb 2×4 building stud at the door at 35mph! A builder-grade door can’t keep projectiles at bay.

Need Commercial Storefront Windows That Are Hurricane Ready?

We have finally entered the Spring season. What does that mean? It means you are running out of time to get prepared before storm season hits. Does your business have storefront impact windows protecting it? At Florida Engineered Glass Corp. we are here to ensure that you and your place of business are protected. We specialize in impact window installation and are located in Miami.

Get Windows That Will Protect

When it comes to retail and commercial storefront windows and doors, it’s practically necessary to go impact. When a hurricane hits and there is no impact product surrounding a retail or commercial store location, then the results can be devastating. Nobody wants to have to deal with the aftermath of a hurricane, especially when it comes to cleaning up the business location and getting all new windows and doors. That is why the best course of action to take is to get guaranteed hurricane protection with impact-resistant windows and doors.

So what is resistant glass? These products are considered as strong and resilient as they are because it all comes down to the hurricane resistant glass that they are composed of. The impact windows and doors consist of the double glazed pane with an aluminum frame to create sufficient stability and strength. There are layers of glass with a plastic film keeping them in place. So, even if the outside layer were to crack, the other layers will remain unaffected because of the film.

Get Storefront Impact Windows

With similar reasons for choosing hurricane resistant impact windows and doors at residential locations, retail and commercial settings can also benefit significantly from having high impact resistant products.

One of the more apparent benefits of switching out current windows and doors at a retail or commercial location with ones that are a high impact is that the change can protect the whole store from the effects of a hurricane. Tropical storms and hurricanes can leave horrific results, especially on homes, businesses, and grounds that do not have the proper hurricane-resistant materials. If traditional, original windows and doors are left supporting the location and a hurricane hits, then it is highly likely that the glass will be all over the place afterward. Not only can this be a tedious mess to clean up, but the debris can also damage essential materials, products, and the store’s interior.

Another significant advantage of having impact windows and doors in the home is that these impact products can significantly reduce break-ins and shoplifting. These high impact windows and doors are so thick and virtually unbreakable that heavy objects cannot even break the glass open.

Hurricane Window Design Trends in 2019

As 2019 moves in, so do different trends in window design. For 2019 and beyond, the forecast for windows is larger units with an unobstructed viewing field, with dark-hued, minimal frames. Shapes are square and rectilinear, and the overall aesthetic is totally modern. Host of Sabine’s New House, designer and builder Sabine Schoenberg notes that “the move towards modern…  clean, and unfussy… is here to stay.” Windows are an important part of a home’s aesthetic, so read on to learn more about window design trends for your next home remodel to keep your home updated and modern! Florida Engineered Glass Corp. is one of the top impact window manufacturers who provides the trendiest designs in hurricane windows and doors Miami homeowners love. Call us today for your hurricane window needs!

 

Trends in Window Design This Year

 

There are a few major, clear trends in window design that is here to stay in 2019. Architects are mulling windows together and occasionally mixing shapes in order to achieve the large window units that home buyers want. It depends on the weight of the glass when it comes to making an inoperable window larger than one that operates. For larger windows, such as in living areas, fixed windows are generally fine. South Florida Millwork vice president Joe LeFore notes that “everybody wants more glass and less frame,” and that “Bigger is better.” Florida Engineered Glass Corp., who provides hurricane windows and doors Miami homeowners trust, has seen that bigger windows with minimalist frames is a clear trend that is going to be here to stay for a while. We even occasionally do away with grids and muntins to increase the viewing area of the window. Moreover, while screens are always offered as an option, many people simply don’t want to have screens and don’t need the hassle of storing something away that they won’t be using, which is why screens are going away.

 

We Are Top Impact Window Manufacturers

 

When it comes to frames, painted metallic frames are a major trend, and the trend towards black frames on both the interior and exterior of windows continues to be a top trend. Painted frames are preferred over an actual metal frame, due to the fact that while home buyers may enjoy the look of a metal frame, it’s a concern that they may tire of the look in a few years and having an actual metal frame is a commitment. Moreover, aluminum windows are also costly to thermal break. The palette for other darker colors is also getting larger as they become more popular. Wood is popular in darker colored frames such as dark brown, barn red, and dark greens. While keeping costs in line is often at odds with trends in production building, Philadelphia architect Jim Wentling will often utilize smaller square windows as accents in Craftsman-style home, or in a ranch-style home accent with a ribbon window.

Hurricane Glass Windows Can Save You Money on Home Insurance

Who doesn’t love saving money on insurance? The experts at Florida Engineered Glass Corp know how to make that happen. Our answer: hurricane glass windows. Since we are in the winter months, now is the best time to incorporate these powerful windows into your home before storm season hits in the summer. We promise our customers will not be disappointed by our impact window Miami.

 

It is the Time to Save Money

No matter where you live in the state, it is appropriate to take a look at your homeowner’s insurance policy. You need to be fully aware of what type of coverage you have and whether or not you need additional protection from hurricanes. If you are a homeowner who lives near the beaches, you must consider hurricane insurance. If this is the case, check to see what discount you may be eligible for. You can trust our impact window Miami.

 

Discounts for Hurricane Glass Windows

If you don’t own them already, consider implementing a hurricane glass window. In hurricane-prone areas like Miami, this safety step will mitigate damage and insurance costs, so insurance agents often offer savings for such upgrades. Some hurricane-risk areas even legally require that protected home discounts be available to homeowners.

 

Windows are one of the most cost-effective updates to the home, and they generally earn the highest return on insurance discounts. This is because openings in the home are some of the most vulnerable points, and the glass from a broken window poses an additional threat. So, by updating them, you are reducing the potential damage insurers will have to pay for.

 

We suggest you contact your insurer before you make home upgrades to discuss what you will need to do to qualify for discounts, as the requirements and value will vary depending on where you live and which insurer you use.

 

Installing impact-resistant windows can save you a few hundred dollars a month, or even more than $10,000 per year, depending on your area and your insurance provider. On top of that, these types of changes will keep your home more protected against costly repairs from hurricane damage. If you update all home openings to be reinforced or hurricane-proof, you can often get a much larger discount for the combined strength. Sometimes you can cut your premiums almost in half.

 

We even suggest installing hurricane-resistant doors. These will help keep winds from adding more wind forces to your home, as well as garage door and skylight upgrades, and retrofitting of other potential leak points. Your insurer can tell you what the requirements are for your home.

 

The insurance discounts will continue annually, after a 1-time expense to reinforce your home. Talk to your insurance provider, and calculate the overall savings per year compared to the cost of the updates. Often, you will find they pay for themselves quickly, as you continue to save money.

 

Install Our Impact Window Miami

At Florida Engineered Glass Corp. we genuinely care about the safety of your home and family. We also want to ensure that you get the discounts you deserve with hurricane glass windows. We offer the best hurricane windows and doors Miami, Florida! Our variety of impact products will keep you satisfied and your house protected.  When it comes time to prepare for the next hurricane, get a step ahead of the game and call us for a free estimate on our impact window installation.

A Look At The Growth Trend For Impact Rated Windows

Hurricanes are a regular threat to Florida, especially areas like Miami, every year. It has been forecast that the frequency and power of these hurricanes will continue to increase. This means that the need for high impact rated windows will also increase. It’s dangerous for weak windows to be subjected to high-velocity winds. They can shatter and increase to the catastrophe by adding flying glass to the mix of wind and rain and other flying debris. These sturdy-framed, multi-pane products can save you money and ensure peace of mind in the midst of a devastating hurricane. In terms of value, impact-resistance windows account for around 10% of the market for windows and doors. Both are expected to continue to increase in the coming years due to the forecast of increased frequency and power of hurricanes in Florida. The main reason for this is their ability to mitigate storm-related damage to residential and business properties. It doesn’t help that four of the top five costliest hurricanes in US history have happened in the past 15 years. Be sure to look into Florida Engineered Glass’s impact window installation to cut down on the chance of a disaster getting even worse and costlier.

 

What Drives the Growth of This Product?

 

There are several factors which drive the growth of impact window installation, such as increasingly popular stringent statewide building codes, strong construction and population growth in the southern US, Heightened storm risk, and the array of benefits for homeowners who aren’t even in storm-prone areas. An example of these more stringent building codes are the ones introduced in 1992 following hurricane Andrew, and in 2005 following hurricane Katrina. The North Atlantic Basin is a prime area for cataclysmic weather conditions to hinder or completely halt construction work. The NOAA has predicted an increasing number of tropical cyclones and hurricanes with levels unseen since 2012’s hurricane Sandy. Not only can impact resistant window provide benefits against storms, but they can also help against burglars, provide ambient noise reduction, energy efficiency, UV light protection, and discounts to your insurance premiums.

 

More Info on Impact Rated Windows

 

Traditionally, these windows are manufactured from metal, which is thought to be more capable of withstanding physical damage in the case of high winds and wind-blown debris. Many times, manufacturers use aluminum to be in line with the strict Dade County specifications for high-velocity hurricane impact resistance without sacrificing high-value aesthetic appearance. Recently, many have been using reinforced vinyl products due to their attractiveness to homeowners which stems from their lower cost and safety. Thanks to this, the sales of plastic impact windows has been projected at an increase in market, and it’s believed that they will even surpass the sales of metal-based products by 2020.

The Beauty In Hurricane Impact French Doors

Preparing your home for a hurricane doesn’t have to mean losing out on the style you’ve come to love and admire. A lot of people think of impact windows and doors Miami and think bulky thick options that leave little room for aesthetic appeal, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. You can obtain beauty while also choosing doors that will withstand the forces of high winds and torrential downpours.

 

Impact french doors that are hurricane resistant are fantastic additions to your home. Care and consideration are put into each of the products that are installed to ensure that they get the job done when the time comes. Safety should always be a priority when you are thinking about how to keep your home and family safe, but you should not have to sacrifice any of your style.

 

Many times impact doors and windows will come in one style, but this is unrealistic. Not everyone has the same preference when it comes to design and just because someone needs a specific type of window they shouldn’t have to settle for the one model that is put out on the market. Hurricane resistant french doors offer an elegant appearance while ensuring your home stays safe during severe weather. There are even options to get these doors custom made to make sure they fit all your impact requirements as well as design preference.

 

Another benefit of impact french doors is their ability to be extremely hurricane resistant. They can withstand winds ranging from 210 to 390 miles per hour. Their beauty doesn’t take away from their ability to have the same resilience as hurricane resistant windows. They are also able to withstand blunt force trauma and not shatter. This is a crucial quality in impact doors and windows because you can never predict what type of debris will be flying around or the speed of wind that will accompany a hurricane. Choosing impact french doors provide a safe and effective way to protect your home in severe weather. They also offer endless amounts of beauty and energy-savings to your home.

Important Things To Know About Hurricane Windows Are Installed

Hurricanes are an unfortunate aspect of living in the coastal state of Florida, and homeowners should be proactive and be prepared in the case of strong tropical storms or hurricanes. There are rigorous testing procedures and installation standards that most people aren’t aware of, that hurricane impact windows should meet in order to properly protect your home. Moreover, the simple fact that a window is being marketed and sold as a “hurricane impact window” does not necessarily mean it is the right type of window for your condo or house. Thus, it is in your best interest as a buyer to be informed regarding the best hurricane windows for your specific situation in order to ensure that you’re getting the value and protection your home needs. Florida Engineered Glass Corp. provides hurricane windows and doors Miami residents can trust. Call us today to hurricane-proof your home!

 

What To Know When Installing Hurricane Impact Windows

 

There are a few things you should know prior to installing hurricane impact windows in your home or condo. First of all, you should check the wind-borne debris testing. During a hurricane, every exterior opening, including windows, must be protected from wind-borne debris caused by the hurricane. Impact and pressure requirements are the two main elements of wind-borne debris testing. There are certain tests such as the large-missile debris test and small-missile debris test that you can utilize in order to test for the rating of the window, and you should also take into consideration the height of your window when conducting these tests as they have an effect on the type of window you should get. Secondly, you should look for a label on the window to check which standards it has passed. You need to take into account the geographical location of your home, as it will dictate the wind zone and exposure category of your home. This means that the location of your home also impacts the installation requirements of your windows. For example, Broward and Miami-Dade counties have the highest standards when it comes to installation as they are in a high-velocity hurricane zone (HVHZ). Any window that meets the HVHZ standards are considered safe in other counties.

 

How To Choose the Best Hurricane Windows For You

 

Florida Engineered Glass Corp., who produces hurricane windows and doors Miami residents rely on, notes that you need to check for a building permit prior to installing a hurricane impact window. This is generally to the homeowner’s benefit, as building permit applicant is required to provide information such as what is being installed, the manufacturers, product approval numbers, and also often the installation instructions. The building department’s job is to make sure that the products used meet the standards of the building. Lastly, and perhaps most obviously, it’s important to pick a contractor who will install the windows properly, as the impact resistance of the windows are compromised if installed improperly.
