Unprotected glass windows are easily penetrated
Wind blown debris in severe storms allow damaging wind and water in enter your home. Once the window glass fails, the subsequent pressurization of the structure can cause total destruction of your home. With the exception of impact-resistant glass, all other glass, even tempered, needs to be protected during a severe storm or hurricane.
Masking tape and plywood don't provide real protection
Installing storm shutters is one of the best ways to protect your home (outside of installing impact-resistant windows). Here are some some practices that people use to protect their home during a hurricane:
Plywood: Plywood that is not properly secured and installed to your house can Rip Off during high winds and become a projectile that can cause serious damage to your and your neighbor's property. Then, your windows are exposed and vulnerable to penetration. Covering your windows and doors with plywood should be a LAST resort alternative until you install hurricane shutters.
Masking Tape: Many people still believe they can use masking tape to protect their windows when a hurricane is on its way. This is a myth! Imagine a mail box that has been ripped from the ground, by a 120 mph wind gust. This dangerous projectile won't even slow downas it passes through masking tape! Windows are best protected with impact-resistant windows or hurricane shutters.
