NAPLES, Fla. Some Southwest Florida residents are safeguarding their homes with plywood and shutters, but Michael Woolley chose to protect his windows with hurricane glass.
Hurricane glass or impact glass can add a special laminated layer between two solid layers of glass, according to Woolley, owner of Southwest Glass & Mirror in Naples.
“I would have no problem staying through a tropical storm with my kids in my home,” Woolley said.
Southwest Glass & Mirror is one of many companies offering hurricane glass, Woolley said. But the installation process can take several weeks.
