Southwest Florida homeowners know that there are times when it's just too hot and humid to be outside. However, if you're not willing to give up the outdoors, there's something you can do to make sure you can enjoy the beauty of your yard, but remain comfortable at the same time -- enclosing your home's lanai with glass. Before you tackle this project, learn how it can improve your home's value and at the same time provide your home in Fort Myers or Naples with hurricane protection by installing impact windows.
Increase Functional Living Space
One of the biggest reasons that a glass lanai improves your home's value is that it instantly increases your functional living space. If your lanai area was unusable because of the heat and humidity during the summer months, you can now relax in a cool, bug free, and climate controlled space. Imagine being able to enjoy a cup of coffee on easy weekend mornings with a view of your backyard!
Consider windows that open easily so you can catch a breeze as the weather cools for full versatility. Excellent options are impact resistant sliding glass doors or even folding glass walls. Folding glass walls are folding style doors which fold left, right, or are split down the middle panels to create a unique opening glass wall. Storm Solutions can custom design these doors to open any space and help you enjoy unobstructed views.
Additionally, enclosing your lanai can protect your patio furniture from mold and mildew. When you're able to close your lanai, you can choose any type of patio furniture you want -- you don't need to focus on non-porous surfaces like metal and plastic and instead can buy a cushy couch and rug.
Glass Enclosures With Impact Windows Can Protect Your Home From Hurricane Damage
Impact windows installed in your lanai can protect your home from hurricane damage. Impact windows will be able to keep your belongings safe, even as a storm's fury rages outside. When you have a lanai that uses impact windows, all you need to do to prepare is to make sure the windows are properly closed -- there's no fussing with hurricane shutters or running around securing your patio furniture or grill to make sure that it's safe before the storm hits.
Increase Your Home's Security Against Burglars
Lastly, a professionally installed glass lanai with impact windows can protect your home against burglars. If you're forced to evacuate during a hurricane, you can rest assured that your home is safe when you have impact windows installed. While you hope that you never have to evacuate and worry about a break in, impact windows can reduce the chance and give you one less thing to worry about.
