Protecting your home and family is at the center of everything you do as a homeowner. When you think about your family’s safety, some of the first things you consider are your home’s doorways or a security system. But did you know that windows can actually play a vital role in making your home safer?
At The Construction Group in Minnesota, we understand the important role windows play in protecting your home. Read on to learn more about how replacement windows can work to make your home a safer place for the people living in it.
Protection Against Burglars
Burglars tend to go for the easiest entrance to a home. They will often enter through an easily opened window latch. If a burglar is not granted easy access to your home, most will continue looking for a quicker, easier target. However, single-pane and flimsy glass can easily be broken by more daring burglars.
Replacing your outdated windows with thick, high-performing glass will deter these scoundrels and send them in search of an easier mark.
We offer a wide range of windows to choose from:
● Storm windows
● Casements and awnings
● And more
Protection Against Wild Weather
One of the most important functions of good windows is to protect your home against the elements. A strong window will have reinforced glass to protect against precipitation like rain, snow, sleet, and hail. It will also keep the warm air from leaking out during the winter and promote energy savings. A flimsy, outdated pane can also be easily broken under the pressure of flying debris, but a reinforced window will repel these items, protecting your family against the dangers of broken glass.
Protection Against Mold and Mildew
When your windows are not sealed properly, they can leak or experience extra condensation. All of this moisture provides the perfect breathing ground for mold and mildew. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, this can be especially dangerous. But even for the healthiest among us, mold and mildew can cause health problems.
Replacing your windows with a new, moisture-resistant window can help protect against the growth of these unwanted biological organisms.
