Houston Strong: Keep Your Home Tough with Local Window Replacement
Houstonians have one absolute in common: we love our city, and we are proud to call it home.
We’ve got space, freedom, affordability, lots to do, and a solid community. It’s a great place to live and work, and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. However, as last year’s brutal hurricane season reminded us, Houston’s weather can offer some special challenges – especially for the unprepared.
On the one hand, we have heat in abundance; for around 100 days of each year, temperatures range from 90 to 95°F (and sometimes, they go well over 100°F).
That’s nearly a third of any given year.
And our heat isn’t a dry one; humidity here in Texas can be oppressive, and we all spend some part of our busy lives simply trying to remain cool enough to live to get to and from work, without looking like we just stepped out of a steam room.
Beyond the heat factor, tropical storms and hurricanes here are no joke.
Strong, sometimes highly destructive winds, plus torrential rain, create conditions that many other cities never ever have to face. Hurricane Harvey’s unwelcome visit left us with a bill for $125 billion worth of damage, in addition to many injuries and, tragically, several deaths.
While Harvey’s 200 mile-per-hour winds may have damaged our homes, by throwing debris against our structures, and, in some cases, flooding them, Houstonians came out stronger, and realized that evolving weather conditions are something which we all need to be prepared for.
Cleaning up our communities and pulling ourselves back up on our feet came with an opportunity to make smart choices, while moving forward, to better protect our homes and families.
In Houston, replacement windows and doors have got to withstand a lot of punishment, including strong winds, torrential rains, strong, persistent heat, and high humidity.
It’s not easy being a window or a door here in Houston!
Requests for affordable window replacement went sky-high after Harvey, as our community realized the importance of having windows and doors that could stand up to such extreme weather.
Thus, storm-resistant windows and hurricane doors in Houston are part of our natural habitat now. And the best of these also seal in our internal environment, so we can keep cool and comfortable in the summer, as well as warm and snug in the winter.
