Getting Help With Glass

I have always had problems renovating my home, which is one of the reasons I started focusing so seriously on finding contractors. I began going through and looking for incredible places who could help with everything from replacing my carpet to taking care of finding new glass, and a few months ago, I was able to find a contractor that I felt really great about working with. They went through my home and replaced all of the auto glass, and I was really impressed with how great of a job they did for me. This blog is all about getting help with glass.

The Benefits Of Choosing An Impact Door For Your Home

by Lynn Webb

If you're looking for a secure new entry door, then you should consider choosing an impact door. These quality doors are built to meet hurricane building codes so they can withstand strong impacts from flying debris, high winds, and intruders. Even the glass in these doors is impact resistant. Here are some benefits of installing an impact door on your home:

Your Home Is Always Ready For A Storm

When you have an impact door, there is nothing you have to do to get it ready for a storm. You might need to board up a traditional door if it has glass in it or around it. An impact door doesn't require any type of shutters or boards because it is strong enough to stand up to a storm by itself. This eliminates the worry you may have when you're away from home of blowing debris or high wind knocking the door down and leaving your home open. If you head to a shelter or evacuate when severe weather heads your way, you won't have to worry about coming home to find your door wide open and your home destroyed. When your door fails during high winds, the wind rushes in your home and can cause all kinds of damage. Not only that, if your home is open, it can be looted during the storm.

You Have Protection Against Home Invasion

An impact door can't be kicked in because it is exceptionally strong and the method of installing it makes it very secure. The glass in an impact door may crack if it is hit just right, but the film holds the glass together so it doesn't fall out when an intruder strikes it. You may want one of these doors just to increase your home's security. If you've always wanted an entry door with a large glass insert or with glass along the sides but were reluctant to install one because of the fear of an intruder kicking out the glass, then an impact door is the perfect solution. You can buy French doors, sliding glass doors, and just about any type of door you want that is resistant to impact.

You may also notice an impact door acts as a sound barrier that reduces outside noise, which is an added benefit. In addition, the film used to make the glass strong is able to block UV rays so if you choose an entry door with a lot of glass, you don't have to worry about sun damage to your furniture or floor.
