When homeowners Nikki and Tom Scott decided to build their dream home in South Carolina, they turned to Babb Custom Homes for assistance.
"Being a Coldwell Banker Realtor and recognizing the value of having a quality built home, it was very important to me that our builder use the best windows for our location close to the Atlantic Ocean," says homeowner Tom Scott. "We wanted the best views possible of the Intracoastal Waterway and we also didn't want to worry about putting up or storing plywood boards or having unsightly shutters on our home."
Constructed of remarkably sturdy reinforced vinyl profiles, Simonton StormBreaker Plus windows feature impact-resistant glass that helps withstand high winds and flying debris without the need for plywood or shutters. The energy-efficient windows are approved to the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) certification standards through the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and the Florida Building Commission (FBC).
"Information I had previously seen on Simonton StormBreaker Plus windows convinced me these were the windows for us," says Scott. "We're happy we made the investment. We love the appearance of the windows, the low maintenance features, the great energy efficiency and the feeling of security these windows give us. Every day our huge wall of windows gives us pleasure and we're thrilled with the investment in these reliable windows."
