Hurricane Windows Versus Hurricane Panels: Which One is Right For You?

Florida living definitely has its perks: Breath-taking landscapes, days filled with sunshine, and a climate that makes our Northern neighbors insanely jealous come winter-time. But there are some weather conditions in Florida for which every resident should be prepared: Hurricanes and heavy rain. Protect your home by educating yourself on hurricane windows and panels, and which one is right for you.

Hurricane Windows: The ultimate in protection

Good protection from hurricane force winds start with a high-quality window. Single hung vinyl windows from companies like PGT undergo certification to match Miami-Dade protocols for small and large projectile resistance. FAS Windows & Doors carries hurricane impact windows with laminated glass, which resist impact and keep original shape even when hit with a high-velocity object.

Hurricane Panels: A low-cost alternative

If you are content with the quality of your current windows, hurricane panels offer added protection. FAS Windows & Doors carries storm panels in three materials: Galvanized steel, aluminum, and clear lexan plastic. Hurricane panels offer a more affordable alternative if you aren’t looking to augment the permanent look of your home. Our experts at FASWD are here to answer all of your questions.
