For homes that are subject to stormy weather and hurricanes, your choice in windows should reflect that. You want glass and a frame that durable enough to resist those winds, impacts, and rains. This means that vinyl or wood might not be the best call.
So which window offer the most protection against hurricane-like weather?
I’d go with the Marvin Ultimate window. This window is made for exterior durability and resistance to the elements. The exterior fasteners are corrosive-resistant and with StormPlus, you have even more added protection. The extruded aluminum casing also helps to ensure maximum durability in the frame, while preserving design in the long run.
Another thing to consider during hurricane weather is flying debris. If this hits your frame, it can lead to cracks and vulnerabilities for moisture and drafts. If it hits your glass, it means dangerous shards may enter your home. It could be a good idea to consider tempered glass or laminated. This way, if debris or strong winds were to shatter your window, it will either shatter into harmless beads or crack within the laminated film, and ensure safety for your family.
When it comes to choosing the most durable window option, Marvin Ultimate is an amazing choice, especially when considering protection from hurricane-like weather. This stems from the extremely durable extruded aluminum exterior, as well as the glass panes. Along with tempered glass, they come insulated as an added perk for Jersey Shore homes.
