In fact, the damage caused by water allowed to enter a home is more devastating than most other types of damage associated with hurricanes. Though impact windows are more expensive than conventional windows, they can help Miami homeowners to save money in the long run by reducing insurance costs and preventing damage. Interested homeowners should contact a Miami Beach impact window company today for more information.
