As 2021 begins to unwind, it’s important to step back and consider where your home could use improvements. This can include long term projects, as well as short term goals you want to set. While you could look at remodeling the bathroom, or installing new tile in the backyard patio, it’s time to make 2022 the year you get impact windows installed in your home. Impact windows are well worth the investment, offering you a number of benefits guaranteed to increase your quality of life the moment they’re installed.
Current Windows Lifespan
If your home was constructed during the large 80s & 90s build outs, you likely have the same windows installed. The typical lifespan of standard windows is around 20 years, extending to 30 with good maintenance. That means that even well maintained windows have reached the end of their lifespan and it’s time to make the switch. Rather than go with regular windows, make the switch to impact windows. Depending on the material and brand, impact windows can be sustained upwards of 30-40 years with proper maintenance. Coupled with the added benefits over regular windows, it becomes a must-have for your home.
Wealth Of Benefits

While most people associate impact windows solely with protection against hurricanes and tropical storms, they actually offer a number of other benefits as well.

Impact windows aren’t just for defense against storms, either. They also protect your home against potential home invaders.
