Double-Hung Windows

A double-hung window is similar in looks to a single-hung, but includes top and bottom operational panels. This means that you have more versatility in how they are used and more options for ventilation. Double-hung windows don’t just slide up and down; the different panels also tilt in for easy cleaning.

Sliding Windows

Since they offer the opportunity for homeowners to regulate their interior temperature without adjusting the thermostat, sliding windows can save you hundreds of dollars every year in heating and cooling costs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Impact-resistant windows are windows that are designed for specific regions where storms are common. Some counties and municipalities have stricter guidelines than others, but using the design pressure specification suitable for your area determines the type of impact window that is best for your home. The design pressure is a performance specification for how active the window is, expressed in how many pounds per square foot (PSF) of force the window can withstand. The design pressure can fluctuate based on factors such as geographic location, the height of the building, the site of the window structure, etc. All these are used to calculate the design pressure of a specific impact window or door.

Impact windows are manufactured to the specifications of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard 7 for the location of the home for which the windows will be installed. For areas of high risk, these windows can be manufactured to withstand up to Category 5 strength hurricane force wind and debris. These windows would be rated to withstand sustained winds of greater than 140 mph and gusts up to 200+ mph.

Impact windows are manufactured to meet at least the minimum wind speed or pressure rating outlined by the American Society of Civil
Engineers. This can vary based on the location of your home, but our product specialist will review your options with you and answer any questions regarding specific needs or preferences. Windows can be manufactured to withstand up to Hurricane Category Level 5 wind speeds, so even if you don’t live in a high risk area, we can help provide a range of safety options for your family that meet your desired comfort level.

What are Impact Windows?

Impact windows are a type of window that is designed to protect your home from damage caused by natural disasters. They are made from a combination of laminated glass and a polymer interlayer, making them much stronger than regular windows.

How Do Impact Windows Work?

Impact windows work by absorbing the force of an impact and distributing it evenly across the entire window. The laminated glass and polymer interlayer work together to prevent the glass from shattering into small pieces, which can cause injury or damage to your home.

Types of Impact Windows

There are several types of impact windows, each with its own unique features and benefits. Some of the most popular types of impact windows include:

Single-Hung Impact Windows

Single-hung impact windows are a popular choice for many homeowners. They are easy to operate, energy-efficient, and can be customized to fit the style of your home.

Double-Hung Impact Windows

Double-hung impact windows are similar to single-hung impact windows, but they have two movable sashes instead of one. This allows for better ventilation and easier cleaning.

Casement Impact Windows

Casement impact windows are hinged on one side and open outward, providing excellent ventilation and natural light. They are also very energy-efficient and can be customized to fit the style of your home.

Awning Impact Windows

Awning impact windows are hinged at the top and open outward, providing excellent ventilation and natural light. They are also very energy-efficient and can be customized to fit the style of your home.

Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors are a popular choice for many homeowners. They are easy to operate, energy-efficient, and can be customized to fit the style of your home.

Most impact window manufacturers offer warranties that cover defects in materials and workmanship. It’s important to choose a manufacturer that offers a good warranty, as this can provide peace of mind and protection against unexpected costs.
