Impact Doors vs Normal Doors

Impact Doors vs Normal Doors. Rain on a window

More and more by the day, Floridians are making the choice of replacing their current standard doors with new impact-resistant models. And if you’re amongst the many, you’re probably left to wonder why the switch. More so, you’re also probably left wondering if you should get yours replaced, too. There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with your normal doors, so why get impact doors?

While there isn’t anything necessarily wrong with your normal doors, they’re not usually built optimally for the use of defense. Especially here in Florida, where the weather and other elements can cause a devastating impact on your property. But when your normal doors are replaced with impact doors, you’ll begin to notice right away why these models are installed into countless Florida properties. And if you’re interested in knowing more about why impact doors are better than normal doors, continue reading below. The Window Guys of Florida can provide you with the best impact doors that you can’t find anywhere else.

Impact Doors Vs. Normal Doors

Normal doors on just about any property are constructed with two steel facings and a filler. Other types also include one solid wood block with an attached handle and lock for added security. And even though such models are generally safe, they’re not always strong enough to protect property occupants from the forces of hurricanes and other severe storms. In fact, if you live in regions where such forces are common – such as Florida – it’s highly recommended that you get them replaced with impact-resistant models as soon as you can. And this is because impact doors are designed and made with materials that have been tested and approved to withstand even the most powerful weather conditions.

Impact doors are constructed with thick fiberglass skins with both wood and composite materials. They’re also made with reinforced hinges and dense door frames that provide an extra layer of protection. Generally, with impact doors, you’ll get the ultimate protection.

Benefits of Impact Doors over Normal Doors

Impact Doors provide a myriad of other benefits to property owners. The best ones, however, include:

Protection From Criminals

Floridians often get impact doors installed because they’re seeking protection from powerful storms. But one other benefit of impact doors is that they also provide protection from criminals as well. Any home invader or vandal can easily break your normal doors. But with our impact doors, you can rest assured that no amount of human force will be able to break through. In fact, we feel certain that there won’t even be a single crack.

Increased Property Value

Owning property also means that you own an investment. So when your property is faltering in some areas, you’re losing out on the potential of your investment itself. By getting your normal doors replaced with impact doors, you’ll be able to increase your property value substantially. And as a result, investors will acknowledge the worth of your property and will be more than willing to purchase it from you when you’re ready to sell it.

Reduced Insurance Premiums

Becoming a Florida resident often coincides with paying a lot for insurance premiums. And this is so that you’ll be covered in the event that disaster strikes your property. But by making the necessary home improvements, the insurance company will acknowledge your efforts and will likely reduce your insurance premium. When an impact door is installed, it’s very probable that your insurance premiums will drop drastically.

How to Maintain Your Impact Windows

How to Maintain your Impact Windows

If you own impact windows then you want to make sure that your windows are kept clean. Doing so will free them from any hazards that could hinder their performance. Impact windows are made to protect your home and though they are sturdy, lack of care will cause their features to diminish. But how exactly do you clean your impact windows? 

Though they are much different from a standard window cleaning your protective windows is not difficult. Continue reading down below to see what you need to do to maintain your Impact windows.

Supplies

Supplies you’ll need to clean your windows include:

  • microfiber towels
  • non-abrasive cleaner
  • Water hose
  • Squeegee 

It’s important that you get these materials to clean your impact windows and nothing else. 

You’ll want a microfiber towel instead of paper towels. Paper towels aren’t able to absorb all the moisture off of your impact windows which can leave spots due to drying from the sun. 

Though cheaper, the standard blue window cleaner solution you see in stores won’t be enough to maintain the performance of your impact windows. Using a non-abrasive cleaner will help clean your impact windows much better. But be warned, you’ll want to check the chemicals that are in the cleaner you are using. Certain chemicals can harm the coating on your impact windows, causing it to peel or degrade. If you are unsure of what chemicals can harm your windows, contact your impact window provider for inquiries.

You’ll want to use a hose as opposed to a pressure cleaner. Applying high pressure to your window will cause caulking issues. The squeegee will be needed to remove water that remains on your windows.

Steps

  1. First, take your hose and turn it on. Thoroughly hose the window down to remove any unwanted dirt and bacteria off.
  2. Starting from left to right, top to bottom, use your squeegee to remove any water remaining on your impact window.
  3. Once the impact window is dry, take your non-abrasive cleaner and apply gently with a microfiber towel, evenly coating all areas of the window.
  4. Lastly, take another dry microfiber towel and wipe away any excess cleaner remaining on your window.
  5. Repeat steps 1 – 4 for all of your windows.
