Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I invest in impact windows?
The state of Florida is prone to hurricanes; it’s less a question of if, and more a question of when. Impact windows are a necessity to keep your home safe from heavy rain, extreme pressures, hurricane-force winds, and storm debris.
If your house doesn’t have impact windows, you will regret it later down the line. When a window is breached in a hurricane, it causes air pressure to build up unevenly inside and out. High-speed winds sawing your house back and forth strain the roof as air pressure attempts to equalize. This can result in damage to your windows and doors, leaving your home vulnerable to danger and your family’s safety compromised.

What makes impact windows better than normal windows?
Impact windows are stronger and less prone to shattering in the event of a storm or hurricane. Normal glass windows fracture under pressure, and shatter lines run quickly along their length, weakening the whole window until it gives out.
Other than its energy-saving benefits and cost-effectiveness, impact windows are built in layers of glass and plastic membrane. If the glass breaks, the plastic layer keeps the pieces together and prevents the fracture from spreading across the rest of the window.
I use plywood to board my windows during a hurricane. What’s wrong with plywood?
Plywood is cumbersome, hard to store, and ultimately not as resistant to flying debris as the impact windows we install. You’ll need to spend hours in the Florida heat hauling, lifting, and drilling to get them in place, all before you even have time to work on any of your other hurricane preparations.
Once the storm hits, plywood is also vulnerable to high-speed winds reaching under and tearing it from your window. Investing in our custom impact-resistant windows and doors are guaranteed to save you time and money in the long run.
Will impact windows compromise my home’s style and design?
Not at all. The impact windows we offer and install are stylish and fit into the outside appearance and presentation of any home without diminishing it in the slightest.
