When you decide to replace your old windows with impact windows, there are a few factors that you should consider.
Design Pressure: The DP of a window is simply the amount of pressure that a window can withstand during a hurricane before the glass pops out of the frame. The BHPwindows has design pressure (DP) requirements for new impact windows.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient: The SHGC measures how well your window blocks the sun's heat. You will find this information on the fenestration label on your window. This is measured on a scale from 0.00 to 1.00, where 0.00 allows no heat to pass through your window and 1.00 allows 100% of the sun's heat to enter your home.
Visible Transmittance: The VT measures how much of the sun's natural light is allowed to pass through your window. Even though you want some sunlight to enter your home, you will probably want to minimize the sun's blinding light that you may find during the day. This is also measured on a scale from 0.00 to 1.00
Manufacturer: There are a number of window supplier and manufacturers to choose from. A few of the more recognizable impact window manufacturers are PGT, CGI, ESW, Lawson and Mr Glass. There are a few factors to consider when deciding which one is best for you. Price, timeline, necessity, location and the type of structure are a few.
Installation: And last but certainly not least, who will install your new windows. Most companies sell many of the same brands, so how do you decide on a contractor. Just remember, you can buy the best impact windows but if they are not installed properly you are just wasting your money. The simple fact is, the windows and doors you purchase are only as good as the company who installs them.
