Benefits of Installing Impact Doors & Windows

Safety is a top concern for all homeowners, especially during hurricane season. Learn about the benefits of impact windows and doors.

Looking to improve home protection while maintaining style? Here are the reasons to add impact doors and windows to your home.

One of the biggest concerns for all new and existing homeowners is security, especially during hurricane season. Impact doors and windows are specifically designed to withstand strong winds and the impact of flying debris, giving you peace of mind that your family is protected as much as possible.

With unpredictable weather patterns, it’s perhaps no surprise that impact windows and doors have become a popular choice for consumers. Fortunately, at Clark Hall, we understand your concerns and will work with you every step of the way to ensure you get the highest quality windows and doors for your home.

In this article, we walk you through the steps to make sure you get the right custom windows and doors for your needs.

Advantages of Impact Windows and Doors

Impact windows and doors (also known as hurricane windows and doors) offer many benefits over traditional windows, making them a worthwhile investment for homeowners.

Below, we delve into the advantages of installing impact windows and doors in your home:

Enhance Home Security

Impact doors consist of a heavy-duty frame and impact-rated glass, also known as laminated glass, that has an inner polymer layer for increased security and strength. The quality of steel at Clark Hall provides a much stronger material compared to wood or fiberglass, and acts as a great deterrent for burglars. We also install steel barrel hinges that are welded to the door, which provide extra protection compared to standard pin hinges.

Provide Severe Weather Protection

Impact doors and windows are built using at least 2-3 glass panes that are held in place by a structural inner layer, making them capable of withstanding high winds of up to 170 miles per hour. At Clark Hall, our wrought iron doors and windows can be designed to meet the strictest hurricane and wind ratings, as well as Florida building codes. Furthermore, we work with you from the initial sketch to project completion to make sure you get all the robust protection you need. 

Cut Down on Noise Pollution

Do you live on a busy street? Or maybe you are woken up early every weekday because of local construction work? Well, you are in luck, because impact windows and doors reduce the amount of external or internal noise that travels in or out of your home, while still allowing in plenty of natural light. This helps to improve privacy and a good night’s rest for all family members. It also allows you to ramp up the volume when watching TV or playing music!

Increase Your Property Value

Impact-resistant windows and doors can add value to your property, especially if you live in an area prone to inclement weather. In fact, adding hurricane windows to your home offers one of the highest ROI (return on investment) percentages for home renovations, reaching as high as 101%. The cost of installation will depend on the size and complexity of the project.
