Impact Windows: What’s True And What Isn’t?

As they continue to become more and more popular across South Florida, impact windows have garnered a mysticism around them by homeowners which tends to drastically influence whether they purchase them or not. As South Florida’s leader in impact windows and impact doors, we’re here to clear up impact windows so you can make an educated decision that’s guaranteed to increase your quality of life. Some of the most common things we find homeowners bring up include:

Impact Windows Can’t Be Installed During Hurricane Season

This Is Not True! Every year between July 1st and November 30th, South Florida experiences Hurricane season, where everyone must prepare for the potential onslaught of tropical depressions, storms, and hurricanes as they make their way across the Atlantic Ocean towards us. Many homeowners believe the window for getting impact windows installed is closed till after the season ends. This simply isn’t the case. The reality is that the sooner your home is protected the better, as waiting for the season to end can leave you vulnerable for longer than you need to be. Having to wait half a year just to get the process started can put you at a significant disadvantage, so we strongly recommend getting a quote whenever you’re ready, not when Hurricane Season ends.

Impact Doors and Windows Protect Against More Than Hurricanes

This Is True! While used interchangeably with “hurricane windows”, they’re designed to protect against so much more. Their natural impact protection is designed to stop heavy winds up to 250 miles per hour, as well as large debris and even potential intruders. Additionally, impact windows offer protection against the environment as well, such as UV protection, noise reduction, and lowered energy bills.

Impact Windows Increase Your Property Value

This Is True! Your property’s value jumps significantly when you get impact windows installed for the very reason you likely got them installed in the first place: added protection. No potential homebuyer wants to go through the hassle of having the impact windows added themselves, or have to get shutters for each window manually installed. The convenience, plus the guaranteed boost in safety, are major pluses for any homebuyer looking at your house.
