When you’re living in Wichita, replacement windows can be very important in terms of their long term durability and impact resistance. The strong winds associated with local storms can lead to trees and branches being displaced. In some cases, your windows can be hit by larger pieces of debris and suffer a lot of damage. Even hail storms can lead to the same outcome if the wind picks up and blows the hail straight into the fragile glass of your older windows.
The best thing you can do is replace your old windows with a set of high quality, composite frame polycarbonate windows that can withstand strong impacts and wind speeds exceeding 160 mph. Depending on the quality of the windows and on whether or not they were installed correctly, some impact-resistant windows can even withstand stronger wind speeds, as well as repeated impacts from relatively heavy objects traveling at speeds of more than 35-40 mph.
If you ask local Wichita window replacement experts about these numbers, you’ll find that some can give you even more optimistic estimates, while assuring you that the entire cost of your project will not be much higher than that of a regular window replacement project. So as soon as you start to rely on their expertise, you can simply sit back and relax while they fit your home with the strongest windows that money can buy.
