Lift the windows out and remove a door when a hurricane is coming and the likelihood of wind damage is significantly reduced.
Miami, Fla. (PRWEB) December 06, 2012
Venetian Builders, Inc., of Miami, Fla., has introduced removable windows for the aluminum sunrooms and insulated patio enclosures it designs and installs in South Florida. Venetian Builders can custom-size the acrylic-glazed, aluminum-framed windows to fit any opening. They are designed to increase resistance to hurricane damage and to add convenience when cleaning.
Venetian Builders is the leading installer of quality aluminum sunrooms, patio covers, patio enclosures and screened pool enclosures in Homestead, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and surrounding South Florida communities. The company introduced the removable windows to meet the demands that Florida’s climate places on aluminum structures, said Christopher Noe, president.
“When people look for an aluminum addition, they want to buy the best sunroom or best patio enclosure they can,” Noe said. “But how do you define ‘best’? More than likely that answer comes from the environmental conditions around your home.”
In areas with exposure to high winds – near the coast, golf courses, lakes or canals – removable windows make sense, Noe said. “Lift the windows out and remove a door when a hurricane is coming and the likelihood of wind damage is significantly reduced,” he said. The openings help the wind go through the structure, he said.
“If you’re in a place like Boca Raton or Wellington, and you’re worried about golf balls, acrylic windows give you peace of mind,” Noe added. “They’re less likely to break and highly resistant to shattering.”
Good thing, too, since according to Sports Illustrated’s Golf.com website, golf balls driven off a tee can reach 160 miles per hour, and hit with a mid-iron, 140 mph. “Even on a bounce, they can do some damage to ordinary glass,” Noe said.
Demands differ by area. “As far south as Homestead is, and that close to the Keys, insects can be a real problem, especially the Noseeums, which are tiny but big a nuisance,” Noe said.
Removable windows, coupled with a proper mesh, can solve those problems. “The windows mean a room can be climate controlled, and that beats the heat,” Noe said. “The screens can ward off the insects when the windows are open.”
Wherever the windows are installed, cleaning is eased. “Once the windows are removed, the homeowner can clean both sides,” Noe said, “even if screening is present.”
