As summer approaches in Florida, hurricane season is just around the corner. Is your home ready to withstand a potential storm? Could the windows in your house remain intact during high winds and possible impact from flying debris?
Beyond severe weather incidents, the benefits of replacement windows in Jacksonville and throughout the Sunshine State are many. You’ll save money, improve comfort, and keep your friends and loved ones safe. Read on to learn more about the major perks of upgrading your windows this season.
Have you noticed a recent spike in your utility bills? Faulty windows often cause drafts or air leaks. That means the cool of air-conditioning escapes during the summer, and during the winter the cold outdoor air will find its way in, no matter how high you turn up the heat.
In addition to a tight seal, replacement windows also have other benefits. For instance, they’re easier to clean and maintain, can drastically reduce outdoor noise, offer improved views to the exterior of your home, and help keep you and your guests comfortable inside. Plus, high-quality aluminum window frames are naturally water and rust-resistant, while offering a stylish and elegant appeal.
Think about the current windows in your home. Would a burglar be able to easily open them and gain access to your property? Law enforcement experts say most criminals are opportunists. That means they’re looking for easy ways to pull a quick heist. Replacement windows are built tough. When potential robbers realize breaking into your home is next to impossible, they’ll simply move on.
In addition, new windows come with features that filter the sun’s harmful UV rays. That keeps your family safe inside. You’ll also get a clearer view of what’s happening outside. Plus, by increasing natural light, the potential for accidents inside your home caused by poor visibility is greatly reduced.
When you couple replacement windows with aesthetic and functional features (such as awnings in Orlando), you also get a stylish and elegant look, with optimal protection.
Storm Protection and Security
As mentioned, the threat of severe weather is an unfortunate reality in Florida. Outside of hurricanes, even strong thunderstorms and/or high winds can create complications. However, replacement windows that feature tempered and impact-resistant glass help protect your property and loved ones.
In addition, you’ll never again have to go through the aggravation of installing special windows or protective covers (including plywood). That’s because durable replacement windows are always on the defense against a variety of exterior threats.
Enhanced Property Value and Better Quality of Life
More than improving the look of your home, replacement windows can actually make the property more appealing to potential buyers. Even if you don’t plan to sell anytime soon, the sheer pride of ownership you display will make a positive impact on neighbors and guests.
That’s saying nothing about the other added benefits of new windows, including energy and cost savings, reduced A/C costs, improved views, no more fading of furniture and flooring, and much more. Plus, similar to the pleasant atmosphere on your Florida screened porch, newer windows simply make you feel more comfortable at home.
