Chances are you’ve heard of vinyl windows and may have even considered them for your San Diego home. This popular window material was introduced in the early 1970’s as a cost-effective alternative to other window options on the market. Since then, the windows have risen in popularity to become the most widely purchased window material in the country, thanks to their many benefits including durability and energy efficiency. One benefit of vinyl windows you may not be aware of is the material’s ability to help protect your home. Here we will be discussing a number of ways that vinyl windows can keep your family and belongings safe.
Vinyl Windows Feature Double- and Triple-Paned Glass
Your windows are one of the easiest ways for outside threats to enter your home, and one of the most common ways break ins occur is by someone shattering your glass. The solution is simple, install a window material with a thicker density of glass, making it harder for anyone to break through and enter. Fortunately, vinyl windows come with double- or triple-paned glass standard, dramatically reducing the likelihood that a break in is even attempted.
Vinyl Windows are Weather Resistant
Weather resistance may not be the first thing you think of when you think about security, but it plays a major role in how well your windows protect your home. Windows that aren’t weather resistant typically hold on to extra moisture, causing the frames to rot, mold, and distort. Once such weather damage occurs it becomes easier for your windows to be manipulated from the outside, and in some cases it will even create openings within the frame. By choosing a durable, weather-resistant material like vinyl, you can rest assured that your windows will remain strongly in place.
Vinyl Windows are Compatible with Most Security Hardware
Today, a number of manufacturers are producing new security features that can be added on to your existing windows. Unfortunately, more traditional window options are often not compatible with such hardware. Vinyl windows, however, are compatible with almost every type of security hardware. Due to their vast popularity, it’s considered standard that additional hardware fits the material. That means you can easily upgrade your security hardware as new models advance.
