Coastal homes face many unique maintenance challenges such as, debris and storm waters that can easily damage normal building materials. That’s why you should invest in windows and patio doors that are built to withstand these weather conditions:
Vinyl Doors and Windows
When it comes to all-around weather resistance, vinyl windows and doors come out on top. Vinyl acts as a natural insulator and protects your home from the chill of winter rain. Unlike metal and wood materials, vinyl is unaffected by the salt and moisture in the ocean air. This corrosion resistance ensures that your vinyl’s maintenance needs are minimal. Finally, vinyl boasts great impact resistance. This characteristic ensures that vinyl windows and doors remain unaffected by flying storm debris.
Vinyl materials aren’t enough to protect your coastal home from storm damage. Your window and patio doors should also be equipped with reinforced glass. Laminated glass panes, for instance, are able to stand up to storm winds. Plus, laminated glass can be further strengthened with durable interlayers and stainless steel spacers. Get in touch with your local window and door installation expert to learn about reinforced glass for windows and patio doors.
You don’t have to sacrifice looks when you upgrade your windows and doors. Window makers like Simonton offer vinyl windows in traditional shapes and styles. You may even see a bump in the value of your coastal home after installing windows that protect the home and enhance the exterior!
