Prepare Your Tampa Home with Hurricane Impact Windows

Saturday, July 21, 2018

The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season is forecasted to be less active than the couple couples year, according to an update from the Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State University - but that doesn’t mean that we’re necessarily in the clear.

There are still predicted to be 10 named storms this season, including four hurricanes – one of those is expected to be categorized as a major hurricane (Category 3 or stronger).

While this doesn’t mean that any of those storms will make landfall in Florida, it does give us the knowledge we need to better prepare our homes and families in the event of a storm. So stop worrying about installing shutters or boarding up your windows. Now is the time to start preparing your home for the rest of the storm season and the future with impact resistant windows.

FAS Windows & Doors offers some of the safest, most reliable yet aesthetically beautiful 'weather safe' hurricane windows and doors, building code rated for the Southeast's storm-prone weather. These impact windows, while still beautiful and similar to standard windows, are made to withstand high winds and the impact of flying objects. Although it is still possible to experience some damage, the result is likely to be less severe than if you had normal windows installed.

If you live in Tampa or the surrounding areas, such improvements to your house can even improve its resale value, as hurricane protection can be a heavy consideration for new homebuyers.

Here are some of the hurricane impact windows carried by FAS Windows & Doors:

Andersen Coastal Windows with Stormwatch Protection

Eagle HaborMaster Systems

Simonton StormBreaker Plus

Though each brand offers different styles and options in their hurricane impact windows, all of them meet the strict standards required by the Miami-Dade Building Code. And with expert window installation provided by FAS, you can have some peace-of-mind that your home will be stronger than ever this storm season.

"FAS replaced 3 windows and a sliding glass door in my home. The new windows are like night & day from what I had before. They kept the windows in the style I wanted and the slider glides perfectly. I can't wait til phase two. I will most definitely be rehiring FAS and their install crews for the next go around!"
