Four Things to Keep in Mind

Learning to live with hurricanes has always been a part of the Florida lifestyle. Hurricanes are so much a part of the Floridian culture that “the U” itself, the University of Miami famously represent themselves as “the Hurricanes.” If you live in Delray Beach or any nearby cities, Palm Aluminum can help you protect your home with high quality hurricane windows.

Delray Beach, like all of Florida, is always susceptible to hurricanes, so having the proper protection for your home is crucial.

How can you find the best hurricane windows Delray Beach has to offer? Here are four basic principles to keep in mind.

  1. Shatter-Proof:  Above all else, the most important thing to about quality hurricane windows is that they absolutely must be shatter-proof. Glass that isn’t shatter-proof will, in the event of a hurricane, not only shatter and cause damage, but allow the winds from the hurricane to whip around inside your home, destroying possessions, weakening the overall infrastructure, and causing even more in the way of damage.
  2. Aluminum Frames: In addition, when looking for hurricane windows Delray Beach (and the surrounding area), you’re going to want to look for aluminum frames. These kinds of frames are sturdy enough to stand up to strong winds while still allowing for a certain degree of flexibility. Why is this important?
  3. Frame Flexibility: Simply put, a frame that’s built too rigidly will be sheared off its hinges by the force of a hurricane-strong wind, leaving you with a massive amount of damage to deal with. Instead, you want a frame that’s just slightly flexible, allowing the glass to move ever so slightly during a hurricane without shattering or being blown away.
  4. You Get What You Pay For: A familiar piece of advice, but important one, to be sure—you don’t want to cut corners when it comes to the structural integrity of your home or the safety of your family. Instead, you want the best hurricane windows around.
