Are you searching for windows that will protect your home and your family in the event of a storm? If so, turn to the window professionals at Morgan Exteriors. We proudly install Simonton StormBreaker Plus hurricane windows at homes throughout the Clearwater, Florida, area. The primary purpose of hurricane windows is to prevent glass from flying into your home in the event of an impact, and our hurricane windows do just that. Thanks to their reinforced profiles and revolutionary KeepSafe Maximum® glass panes, which feature a durable interlayer, glass pieces will remain attached to the window frame and inner membrane even if the window is shattered. You can feel confident knowing that our hurricane windows have been tested and certified to meet standards set by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association for high-velocity hurricane zones. We also install industry-leading hurricane windows from PGT, which feature impact-resistant laminated glass that’s strong enough to withstand repeated impacts from a nine-pound, 2’x4’ beam traveling 30+ miles per hour.
