When you’re looking to buy a property, how much stock do you put into the safety of the home? Sure, you could check crime in the area online or drive around the neighborhood to get a feel for it. In South Florida, another thing to think about is protecting your home from hurricanes.
Whether you’re buying a home or selling your home, hurricane windows can be a great investment that gives peace of mind that everything you own is protected from weather.
No matter if you’re planning to buy a fixer upper or a turnkey home, it’s a good idea to look for homes with hurricane windows (or consider adding them yourself). These specially designed windows are made to withstand impacts from debris blown by hurricane winds. If the impact is strong enough & they do happen to shatter, they are made to stay in place rather than fall which helps to to avoid water or other debris from getting inside.
When you’ve recently bought the home of your dreams, the last thing you want is for hurricane season to put a dent in what you’ve built. Hurricane windows are an easy way to add another layer of protection to your home, and we recommend you consider a home that features them or consider adding them in yourself.
When trying to sell your home, you want to do everything you can to increase the value. While interior renovations are great for adding value, the outside of your home is often forgotten.
In addition to offering extra protection for the next owner of your home, this upgrade can be a selling point in the same way energy-efficient appliances are. Hurricane and impact windows are thicker and more insulative than standard glass which helps to keep cool air inside during the summer. This also helps to reduce outdoor noise, which us another nice benefit.
The money saving benefits and convenience hurricane windows offer are a great bonus to make your home stand out. Installing them before you sell your home adds value by saving the buyer time and money on the upgrade – something they’ll be willing to pay for.
