What Makes it a Wilson Window?
Strong windows are essential to any part of hurricane preparation. During hurricane force winds our impact-resistant glass may be the only thing standing between your family. Therefore, for protection it is imperative to install the best possible windows and doors. Wilson Window Glass & Mirror provides windows and doors with layers of glass interwoven with resin to create a shatter-resistant barrier. Secured with a strong frame, these windows and doors protect your home from destructive storms.
Hurricane Windows & Doors are also energy savers. This is because in addition to being double or triple pane they have a film which in addition to protecting you from flying objects adds an extra layer of insulation. Whether double or triple pane, a film is interwoven into the glass. This not only protects you from flying objects during inclement weather it also adds an extra layer of insulation. This shields the interior from the weather outside, thereby reducing energy bills!
Our clients are amazed at how much sound is blocked by these heavy duty windows and doors. This is due to a couple of variables. First the thickness of the glass; second there are multiple layers of glass and at least one layer of plastic film. Quiet windows and doors create a tranquil home.
Our impact-resistant windows and doors not only help protect you and your family from hurricanes, they also protect your home from intruders! With enough force, our impact windows and doors splinter rather than shatter, making them difficult to break and hard to enter through. The tougher the glass, the less appealing to burglars.
Homes with impact windows and doors qualify for insurance discounts on some policies. Ask your insurance agent to see if you qualify.
Every window and door we install is backed by our one year warranty, no questions asked.
