The Advantages of Impact-Resistant Windows

Impact Resistant WindowsWindows can be some of your home’s greatest features — and its most significant vulnerabilities. This is especially true in Florida, where burglars and UV rays exist alongside hurricane-force winds that propel debris at breakneck speeds. The solution for many homeowners? Upgrade to impact-resistant windows in West Palm Beach.


Built to handle a pounding without shattering, these installations could save you thousands of dollars in property damage, or even save your life! To get a good idea of how much they can protect you, let’s look at three situations where the right window makes all the difference.


Rough Weather — From Summer storms to full-on hurricanes, it only takes one gust of wind to propel a tree branch into your window. Normal glass shatters, filling your space with broken shards and exposing it to water damage. Impact-resistant windows stand strong, making your home much safer.


Break-Ins — For the average thief, few things are a more tempting target than an easy-to-access window. At the same time, you need natural lighting in places that might be prime spots for a burglar. Having impact-resistant glass means that even the most enterprising criminal is unlikely to make it into the building.

Custom & Specialty Glass Shower Enclosures for Your Home

Specialty Glass If you were to do one thing to improve your bathroom, what would it be? You may have a few ideas, and so do we. However, one fixture to add to this space that would assure you of elegance, luxury, beauty, and resale value would be installing a frameless glass shower. You’ve seen pictures, and you know how gorgeous they are. With that specialty glass in West Palm Beach, you have turned your bathroom into something worthy of a home decorating magazine.


That almost invisible look opens up the space so this room looks larger. It also gives it a high-end appeal that your family and future potential buyers enjoy. The ability to look through the glass and see the rest of the room through it makes the shower almost seem like a lovely illusion.


The Use of Specialty Glass

Since there is no frame but the glass itself, specialty glass is essential to the manufacturing. The glass must be thick and heavy enough to support its weight. Besides being so pleasing in appearance, glass is much easier to clean than a frame and glass, where the intersection can gum up with soap. To add cleaning convenience, beauty, and resale value to this space, consider a frameless glass shower.
