The choice is clear
With another hurricane season approaching, some minds might be churning at the thought of increasing home protection. Up first on the list? Windows.
There are a ton of options out there, and Windows Hawaii general manager Mario Garcia is here to help. First, when looking for hurricane-grade windows, be sure they have an official hurricane rating — Garcia warns that some dealers might mislead customers by stating their windows are hurricane approved without the actual certification.
On another note, dealers who offer hurricane-rated windows are also likely to present higher prices. So, if you’re looking for a middleman who can help you weather the storm without the added cost of hurricane-rated windows, check out Windows Hawaii’s Storm Package. The package enhances the company’s already-impressive Alii Extreme Windows by manufacturer Anlin Windows and Doors.
The storm package comes with very robust thickness of 1/8-inch to 3/16-inch glass, providing impressive protection during inclement weather. Then, taking it a step further, customers can upgrade this with First Guard Laminated Security Glass.
First Guard doubles the thickness of standard laminate seen in traditional laminated windows. The polyvinyl butyral inner layer is double the standard thickness fused between two layers of glass that boasts an extra layer of security and elevated noise reduction.
Security is greatly enhanced, too, creating a near-impenetrable triple-layer lamination of glass and polymer to better protect homes against invasions. The extra lamination fused in between two layers of glass make the window engineered to fracture but remain in place, even after repeated attempts to break in or during strong storms.
“First Guard is the newest upgrade to our windows that complement our Sound and Security Package offered exclusively at Windows Hawaii,” says Garcia. “No other manufacturers offer anything like it. Any of the aforementioned options, with all the other Alii-exclusive included features, make our windows the best products available on the island, and they are specially made to withstand Hawaii’s climate.”
Interested individuals can call Windows Hawaii to set up a free consultation, or to just get more information.
“We are happy to be of service,” says Garcia. “We offer the best service department, along with the best products and attitude. These are all what makes us the first choice when it comes to windows and siding replacement.”
