Can You Finance Impact Windows?
Many homeowners throughout Florida find that impact windows are a smart investment. Not only do hurricane impact windows provide exceptional protection against inclement weather, but they can also increase the value of your home, improve its energy efficiency, and reduce noise pollution from outside. However, replacing the windows on your home can be a significant investment, and many homeowners wonder if impact windows can be financed. The good news is that the answer is yes, there are a variety of options available for financing your impact windows.
Options for Financing Your Impact Windows
Homeowners have a lot of options available to them, especially when investing in home improvements. Some of the ways you can finance your impact windows include:
- Getting a personal loan – Getting a traditional personal loan through a bank is one way to finance your impact window project, but it will likely have higher interest rates compared with other options.
- Getting a home equity line of credit – You can typically get a better interest rate through a HELOC loan. However, borrowing against your home equity requires that you have sufficient equity in your home beyond what you currently owe on it.
- My Safe Florida Home – This state program is specifically designed to provide grants to select homeowners to invest in home-hardening projects. This includes having impact windows and doors installed. However, finding out if you’re qualified and how to receive the grant may be challenging.
- Financing through your window company – Many window companies offer their own financing options that can help you avoid having to jump through hoops. This offers you one-stop convenience, as you don’t have to go to multiple sources to get an estimate, secure a loan, and approve the project to move forward.
It’s important to note that the financing offered by window companies can vary drastically. When getting an estimate for your new impact windows, it’s also important to ask what financing options are available so that you can get a better sense of what you can expect it to cost. Some companies may require a small portion to be paid upfront, and things like the duration of the financing and the interest rate can also vary quite a bit.
