Think ahead to the 2019 hurricane season

By Elima Pangorang Posted in: Windows

As holiday celebrations commence, be sure to keep the jolly times rolling as we enter 2019. Even though the 2018 hurricane season has passed, that doesn’t mean to turn a blind eye to impending threats. The smartest thing to do is to practice safety and think proactively.

If you’re planning on updating your windows and doors — for the best possible protection to you and your home — before next year’s stormy period hits, general manager of Windows Hawaii, Mario Garcia extends his advice and care to Hawaii residents that sooner is better than later.

“We should be thinking about getting ready for 2019 hurricane season,” he said.

“We live on one of the most beautiful islands there are, but living in paradise comes with its challenges. We have to learn to prepare, and do so in advance.”

A typical renovation project usually goes a little something like this: Receive a quote; pick, choose and order products; have products shipped then installed. In general, getting to the day of completion can take weeks to months. That’s not counting unforeseen delays that possibly could happen.

Plus if you find something amiss following installation, it gives you time to get things squared away with plenty of time left to spare.

What’s more, Garcia mentioned an excellent point to keep in mind. “We know it takes time (long or short) to get anything done, but we also know that true, good quality takes time and care.” When it comes to taking care of your home, the last thing you’d want to do is go with a cheaper, low-quality product — it is, after all, one of the most valuable investments you will make in your life.

Look no further than Windows Hawaii as the superior option.

“If you are looking to replace your windows with quality products to be ready for next year’s hurricane season, this is the right time to contact Windows Hawaii, your exclusive Alii Extreme window dealer. The windows can withstand strong storm forces,” explained Garcia.

The company has a grand selection of windows and doors that stand up to the harmful effects of inclement conditions with its Ali‘i Extreme line of windows and doors that are tailor made to Hawaii’s tropical climate.

There are many reasons to love the Ali‘i Extreme line with its reliable security, sound efficiency and energy efficiency features. Its 1/8-3/16 glass combination provides extra protection during bad weather, while its triple-strength (3/16) glass functions as an efficient noise reducer both inside and out.

The exclusive line’s INFINIT e Plus high performance glazing system blocks 95 percent of harmful UV rays resulting in a cooler home and reduced energy bills.

“INFINIT e is a coating on the inside and the PLUS is the coating on the outside,” Garcia explained. “INFINIT e PLUS is a coating the glass has, and nobody else in the island carries that — it’s exclusive to Anlin. If customers don’t get INFINIT e PLUS, they’re not getting the protection they deserve. INFINIT e PLUS, the solar reflective coating on the vinyl and the vinyl’s master blend are three of the main reasons why our windows are of the highest quality.”

Garcia also informs customers to inquire about the INFINIT e feature by name when calling, adding that it is a vital component because without it, residents will not get all the protection a dual pane window can provide.

Additionally, a triple-fin weather strip blocks air fl ow and reduces thermal transfer. The product’s unique stainless steel window sash bolt brings it full circle to provide added security against potential intruders.

“Competitors usually feature all-climate window packages, but Anlin windows are engineered for Hawaiian homes,” described Garcia. “If customers get an Ali‘i Extreme from us, there’s a True Double Lifetime Warranty on that window.”

A True Double Lifetime Warranty covers the products purchased for life. Furthermore, it is fully transferable to the next homeowner should you ever decide to sell your house. It’s a loaded deal that parallels Windows Hawaii’s beliefs and values of caring for its customers. More information about the warranty can be found at the company’s website.

Windows Hawaii is known for its superior products and superb customer service, and is the islands’ top choice in quality window replacement. The company has been voted first place as Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s “Hawaii’s Best” People’s Choice Award the past five years in a row.
