Getting Your Windows Hurricane Ready

The Atlantic hurricane season—running from June 1st through November 30th—is upon us. According to PBS, this season is forecasted to produce as many or slightly more storms than an average season would.

Due to the projected severity of this hurricane season, now is the time to protect your property from potentially high winds and flying debris.

Protect Your Windows

One of the most important aspects of getting your home hurricane-ready is making sure it is equipped with storm-resistant window coverings. While plywood is an emergency measure, there are permanent products that can withstand strong weather conditions to better protect your home.

Windows That Can Take a Beating

Windsor’s Pinnacle Clad windows use only heavy-duty .050 extruded aluminum cladding rather than thin roll form aluminum. These products are more durable and resistant to exterior damage, including dents and chips that can occur during a hurricane.

Protective Windows with Style

Legend HBR is another great option for storm protection. These windows are a unique hybrid that combine the strength and durability of the Legend frame with an aluminum-clad wood sash. Legend HBR windows offer a low maintenance exterior with a beautiful wooden interior, which offer both protection from the elements and style.
