  1. I had no idea that the exterior of a window could be made with polycarbonates. My window happens to be broken after a recent accident. I wonder if I should consider having it replaced with a polycarbonate model.

      Impact-resistant polycarbonate is a great option for most window replacement projects. Compared to glass, polycarbonate is stronger and much lighter. Polycarbonate panels are easier to handle, can be cut with a standard circular saw, and will not break, shatter, or chip like glass. Virtually unbreakable, polycarbonate panels are an ideal choice for security glazing applications.
      Monolithic “solid” polycarbonate panels offer glass-like visual clarity while multiwall “structured” panels offer excellent insulating properties.
