Jacksonville’s Wind Villain, Vanquished with Coastal Impact Windows

You’re huffing and hoisting wooden planks into the bed of a pick-up truck. Or perhaps you’re, once again, pulling metal shutters out from your garage and dragging them around to affix onto your windows.

The hurricane season, after all, is not a time to take chances.

Jacksonville residents, just how familiar does this sound? (we’re willing to bet “very.”) The good news, however, is that there’s an easier, more long-term solution when it comes to keeping your windows safe in the face of hurricane-force winds.

Here’s what you need to know:

Jacksonville & Hurricanes

“Areas around Tampa, Jacksonville and the Big Bend do not have as high of a risk of a direct strike from a hurricane but are still susceptible to a landfall each year,” according to the Florida Climate Center. “Even if the hurricane makes landfall elsewhere in the state, the impacts can be felt hundreds of miles away.”

For example, Hurricane Irma is recognized as the cause of one of Jacksonville’s most extensive flooding periods, even throughout its total 225-year history. Moreover, Irma had downgraded to tropical storm status by the time it swept past — not over — Jacksonville, and yet still caused considerable wind-related damage.

“On top of the high waters, northeast Florida experienced hurricane-force wind gusts and a few tornadoes causing damage to homes and businesses, along with widespread tree and power line damage,” as reported by Jacksonville’s First Coast News.

Consequently, it is imperative that Jacksonville residents invest in home protection that can withstand the blunt force of these yearly weather events.

Coastal Safety

The reason Jacksonville is so prone to hurricane damage — particularly from hurricane-force winds — is due to the coastal winds that blow in and batter Northeast Florida on a regular basis.

“Coastal Winds stem from large storm systems moving onshore that can pack quite a punch,” the National Weather Service explains. “Often these storms move inland, knocking over power lines and leaving residents in the dark for days.”

Particularly as Florida is a peninsula, the greater state area as a whole is relatively vulnerable to coastal winds and strong storms, including those that never upgrade to hurricane status or that form outside of the traditional hurricane season.

And one way Jacksonville residents can remain diligent in their safety? Simple: by installing windows specifically engineered to weather the storm.
