Try Using Hurricane-Resistant Windows

Hurricanes can devastate your house and leave you with nothing. There are things that you can do that will help lessen and mitigate the damage that happens from any hurricane that may hit your house. One thing that you can do is to add hurricane resistant windows on your house. 

Hurricane Resistant vs. Hurricane Proof

When you are looking around at the windows, you are going to hear that they are hurricane-proof. The thing is that there probably isn't any window that is truly hurricane-proof. A hurricane-proof window is one that isn't going to break no matter what the hurricane throws at them. That would mean that the hurricane wouldn't damage or break those windows at all. When a window is hurricane-resistant, it is going to handle a whole heck of a lot of whatever the hurricane can throw at them. That means that they are much, much less likely to do break when a normal window would. They can reach a failure point, but it's going to take an incredible amount of hurricane to do it. So, what makes a hurricane-resistant window hurricane resistant?

The Process

There are several different kinds of processes that hurricane-resistant windows can go through to make them stronger so that they can withstand the hurricane. 

  • Lamination: When windows are laminated that means that two or more layers of a material are layered together like a sandwich. The two pieces of the material are like the bread and the adhesive that puts them together is the filling in the sandwich. Generally, that adhesive is some kind of resin. It's put in between the two pieces of glass and then they are pressed together and generally put under an extreme amount of pressure and heat so that they become one strong, solid piece. You actually use laminated glass every day when you are driving since your windshield is made out of laminated glass. The lamination can allow one layer to be damaged while the other layer or layers can stay solid. 
  • Hardening: Before the pieces of glass go through the lamination process they are generally hardened to make them stronger. They can be heated and cooled in a series of cycles which will give them the hardness and toughness you are looking for. Another way is to go through a chemical process that can change the way that the molecules of the glass are arranged so that they are stronger. 

Hurricanes can do a whole lot of damage to your house. There are ways that you can start to lessen the amount of damage you may get. Hurricane impact windows are just one of those ways.
