This article includes some basic facts, which contribute to the authority of the piece. For example, the article says that impact windows protect against inclement weather and that they keep cold air out.
A bit more detail would improve the authority of this article. For example, the second section of this article uses four sentences to mention types of severe weather in different parts of the United States. It might be better to condense this information and use this space to tell the reader how impact windows protect against the weather. Most readers already know what types of severe weather exist in different areas. Detailing how impact windows do a great job of protecting against this weather would be more interesting to the reader and would show that the writer has some expertise in this area.
The article is broken up by headers and paragraphs, which helps the piece look clean and readable. Many of the sentences are basic, but they are clear.
The article is generally well organized. The last two sections are clear and focus on one topic. However, it seems that the first section, “The Features of Impact Windows,” gives a sort of overview of some of the features, and the last two sections of the article go into detail about two of these features. It would be clearer if the first paragraph of the piece introduced the idea of the features of impact windows and each section were a separate feature.
There are a couple of typos in this piece. Here are two we found: “This strengthened glass is less likely to break or shattered” and “The added strength of impact windows also makes the more secure.” (These typos were fixed before publication.)
This article includes enough information about impact windows and their features to make it useful to readers. The reader finds what he expects, and the article gives the reader concrete reasons to consider impact windows.
One aspect of this article that helps the use value is the way the author relates the keyword and the topic. The keyword is window replacement, but the author does not talk generically about replacing windows. Rather, he chooses a specific idea that may solve the problem of why the windows need to be replaced. The article still isn’t very exciting, but it does talk to a specific pain point.
A more unique angle or information that transcended the reader’s expectations could raise this article’s engagement and rating. The information is helpful, but much of it could be found on a website for impact windows. Four- and five-star articles find a new angle or a new way to present information.
