Once an opening is breached and the wind enters your home pressure will build until another structural component fails. These windows are designed as a complete system, that means that not only the glass is designed to particular standards, but also the frames and the method of attaching the windows to the opening.

I love my new windows and doors. It makes the house feel warmer, while the outside temp is in the 30's. Plus, the outside noise has reduced, greatly. Karoly and team did a great job from the initial estimate visit, to the office communications, and then the installation team. All professional and knowledgeable. Everything went smoothly and very impressive to watch.
