I recently obtained a beach home that I am slowly renovating so I can rent it out during the Summer season, then the beach home needs lots of love; Since it is near saltwater, a lot of the metal inside the home is wrecked.
The washrooms need to be upgraded and the floors are coming up! I recently decided to supply the beach home up-to-date windows.
I wanted to spruce the location up and the old windows wouldn’t even open, who wants to rent a home that can’t have a window cracked? I called a window installer and found something interesting. Since I am on the beach and where turtles nest, I need to get special turtle glass. The windows have a special window movie that doesn’t create a glare with the sun. This does not change anything for the inside of the house. The glare is for the turtles outside of the house, however apparently the brightness coming off the windows confuses nesting turtles and they leave their eggs. Since the turtles are endangered, they need to keep those eggs safe. That means I am required to have turtle glass on any window facing the water. How much is this window movie you might ask? It is almost double what I was expecting to spend my money for windows! Every window is pushing 2 grand and I have four large windows facing the water. I have to do it too. The windows are so bad and I will get in trouble if I don’t have a safe movie over the glass for the turtles.
