Storm Windows In Houston!
Being so close to the Gulf of Mexico, a hotbed of hurricane activity, we get a lot of tropical storms through here. Therefore, many Houston area homes are located in specific “Hurricane Zones.” These areas, designated by the Texas Department of Insurance, come with specific building codes for homes.
One of those codes deals with the requirement of specific building products designed to withstand hurricane-level winds. Naturally, one of the requirements deals with windows.
Impact & Wind Resistance Are Critical Features Key
For storm windows in Houston, the most crucial features that must be present are impact resistance and wind resistance.
Once a home’s windows are compromised, air pressure in the home can build up so much that it can blow the roof right off. This usually results in the entire home being effectively leveled—extremely dangerous in any scenario.
Our windows are designed to withstand severe windstorms and even hurricane-force winds. Furthermore, with wind and hurricane-level storms comes flying debris—branches, objects, and more. O
Our storm windows in Houston homes protect against flying debris, and rain from penetrating through the windows. This negates the need for unsightly and often cumbersome storm shutters or boarding up with plywood.
These windows have been put through extreme stress tests in controlled labs with simulated conditions that equal or exceed most hurricane-force winds. Our windows have been AAMA-certified for use in the most extreme hurricane zones.
AAMA Certified Storm Windows In Houston
The AAMA, American Architectural Manufacturers Association is an industry association that has provided performance ratings for windows since 1962.
The certification program is not only accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) but also promotes the highest performance and quality standards for windows.
AAMA Certification Programs
- Gold Label for air leakage, water infiltration, and structural performance
- Silver Label for thermal performance
- Insulating Glass Certification
- Certifications for Mobile Home and Manufactured Housing
How Do Our Storm Windows Stack Up?
Our windows are built to very stringent AAMA standards for both wind and impact resistance. For example, in testing, the windows are struck with common objects at speeds over 30mph and the weather barrier remained intact with no issues at all.
Despite those proven results, we go even further and offer one of the best warranties on storm windows in Houston. You can review the warranty details with one of our window consultants for an in-depth review of the terms.
Stronger Than The Storm
We don’t settle for anything less than the absolute best hurricane performance. So, our windows are tested in storm conditions where wind speeds are measured up to 140mph. In fact, our storm windows exceed the standards set by the ASTM E1996 method.
To comply with this method windows must pass stringent testing that includes:
- Firing an eight-foot, nine-pound 2×4 wood beam from a cannon directly to the window
- Positive and negative pressure cycling at 20-100% of the windows design pressure
- Over 8,000 pressure cycles (4,500 positive and 4,500 negative specifically)
When You Go With The Window Source—You Get The Best
Our storm windows go through additional testing that goes well beyond what is required for AAMA certifications. We want to make sure that we give you a product that is the absolute toughest on the market.
