Installing Energy-Efficient Impact Doors That Protect Fort Myers, FL Homes From Hurricane Damage
You may enjoy the expansive outdoor views your patio doors provide, but if their glass panels are vulnerable in a hurricane, you won’t enjoy seeing what the outdoors can bring into your home. Take a big step to prevent that with new impact doors from Affordable Window Systems. The replacement doors we install in Fort Myers and Southwest Florida are not only highly secure with sturdy glass panels and overall construction, they’re also quite energy efficient.
The Need for Hurricane Impact Doors
After Florida Building Code changes were made in 2002 and updated in 2012, it has become a requirement in certain areas for all glass openings to have hurricane protection. This applies to all new homes in Southwest Florida and to the replacement of windows or doors in existing homes. This protection can come in the form of manual shutters that you must put up and take down, or by installing shutters that become permanent fixtures on your home.
The Benefits of Impact Doors
Obviously, some homeowners will have no choice but to have impact doors installed. But even if you live in an area where you aren’t required to have impact doors (and windows) on your home, it can still be a good investment to make. Why? Because the impact doors we install:
- Offer increased protection from break-ins
- Are less likely to shatter in the event that a storm does blow something into the glass
- Have insulation that can help shrink your monthly energy bills and keep indoor temperatures more consistent
- Can reduce your homeowner’s insurance premium
- Help muffle outside noise to preserve the peace and quiet inside your home
