Not only do you want to find a product that will look beautiful for several years, but you will also want to look at practical considerations, such as how well the model you are considering will hold up under severe weather and if it is strong enough to discourage would-be thieves and vandals. Showcase impact windows are a quality product that fits the bill on all counts.
Built to Stand up to Whatever Mother Nature Throws at It

The windows have also resisted wind speeds of up to 171.54 mph. The will stand up well in a storm, without the necessity of having to install storm shutters or putting up plywood to protect your home.
