As you might have guessed, the Fourth of July is a very special day for Rod McDee*. Not only can he haul out the cannon without too many noise complaints — it’s also an opportune time to spread the word about the everyday freedom that CGI® products provide.
“Along with protection against storms, impact resistant windows and doors give you superhero-level confidence and peace of mind,” says Rod.
Rod Squad member Buzz, who recently updated his home with new replacement windows and doors from CGI®, felt the difference right away. “From the moment they were installed, I knew my home was more secure and prepared for just about anything,” Buzz tells us (and everyone else).
The rigorous testing we put our products through, including that famous cannon test, helps us ensure that our windows are strong, durable, and ready to protect. These protocols can give homeowners like you freedom from worry about:
Break-ins and burglaries
Impact windows are built with a strong interlayer that stays affixed to its frame even if struck by windborne debris — or a would-be intruder. While the glass might shatter, it won’t allow for openings into your home. Our easy-to-operate locks and hardware add an additional layer of security.
Excessive outdoor noise can add to stress and sleep disruption while affecting your overall enjoyment of home life.** Our impact glass absorbs sound rather than transmitting it and can minimize it by up to 63%***, including lawnmowers, barking dogs, sirens, construction, and… cannons.
An efficient home is just more comfortable. New windows can help cut down on energy waste by reducing air leakage and solar heat gain. Options like tints and coatings can also positively affect your indoor climate, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in colder weather.
Sunlight can cause considerable fading in furniture, textiles, and artwork over time. Impact resistant windows offer up to 99% protection against damaging ultraviolet rays. That means less need for home furnishing replacement and more attractive interiors.
