To prepare for the inevitable storms in Lakeland, FL, you should consider window replacement if you do not already have impact-resistant or tempered glass windows.
Living in the Lakeland, FL area is an ongoing hazard for hurricanes and storms. If you’ve lived in the area very long, you’ve likely experienced a hurricane or at the very least a tropical storm. As a result of living through hurricanes, it is now known that windows are the main point of damage during storms because, when they break, they allow all the wind, water, and debris outside into the property.
Window manufacturers have come a long way in designing windows that are more suited to stand up to the force from the wind during storms. Impact-resistant windows are required in most areas in Florida as part of the Florida Building Code to help reduce the damage from the inevitable storms.
During storms, windows usually fail due to broken glass from wind pressure and flying debris or the entire window, frame and all, being blown into the structure. Impact-resistant windows and tempered glass windows drastically improve the window’s ability to stay intact from high pressure winds, and if the glass does break, it is less likely to cause injury. Properly installed windows reduce the likelihood that the window will be blown in during a storm.
