What is an impact window and how do they work?
These so-called Hurricane or Impact Windows are equipped with a special Glass allow you to protect your home during hurricanes and attempted break-ins without the need for storm shutters.
What makes this Glass so special ? It’s because it is made with a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer. That’s gives it these remarkable properties. It is a clear resin that works as a high-strength adhesive placed between two panes of glass. This is the reason why impact-resistant windows will crack instead of shatter. It distributes the force of an impact throughout the entire sheet of glass, keeping it in place, even if the glass is cracked. Once constructed, the products are tested and given specific design pressure ratings based on performance. The design pressure (DP) rating identifies the pressure a product is rated to withstand and tells you how strong a window is.
Some of the benefits of Impact Windows and Doors:
If you’re a homeowner living in areas with frequent visits from storms or hurricanes, one of the biggest challenges you’ll ever face is protecting your home and your belongings. You need to make sure that you take all precautionary measures to keep your property safe.
A cost-effective and long-term technique, through which you can save yourself from the hassle of repairing windows and risking damaged property, is through the installation of impact windows and doors. There is a long list of advantages you will see from installing impact windows and doors in your home. Here are some of the most significant benefits to consider:
Hurricane and Storm Protection:
One of the most important benefits of impact windows and doors is that they are extremely strong and can withstand major weather including heavy rain and strong winds. By providing a protective shield against hurricane and storm damage, these windows and doors can cut down the price of regular repairs and help to save your home from damage. In addition, through the installation of hurricane windows and doors, you will be qualified for a wind mitigation insurance rebate.
Increase the Value of your Home:
One added benefit is that impact windows and doors will improve the appearance and market value of your property to ensure that you get higher returns if you decide to sell. This means that whatever you spend on impact windows & doors is an investment that will yield you great dividends when you sell your home.
Apart from hurricane-generated winds which people might face in South Florida, people who live in damp or semi-arid zones also face another challenge – salty and humid air. This not only affects your air conditioning systems, but can also corrode your doors and windows. Impact windows and doors are made with a special corrosion resistant design, allowing for protection from wearing away.
Heat and Noise Reduction:
For people who live in crowded or metropolitan areas, the noise and heat can be unbearable – especially during summers. Impact windows are extremely resistant against strong heat waves and loud noises, allowing you to enjoy some peace and quiet and live comfortably in your home.
The utility bills pile up at a high rate, especially in cities which typically experience extremely hot summers. Replacing your current windows and doors with impact windows and doors will certainly increase the energy efficiency. In fact, it has been shown that inefficient windows and doors consume over 40 percent of your home’s annual energy budget.
Another benefit of installing hurricane windows and doors is the increased security and protection from burglars and intruders. Homeowners will have a peace of mind knowing they are more thoroughly protected by having these protective systems in place. You will, enjoy the calmness mind that emanates from the feeling of safety and security in your home even if you are not in town
Impact windows are some of the most significant windstorm protection systems, which have been recognized by a number of different insurance agencies. Because of this, insurance firms may offer a deduction or discount on insurance premiums. Many homeowners with impact windows also qualify for a wind mitigation insurance rebate.

If you have Impact Windows and Doors installed in your Property through us, we will give you a Letter Certifying it, and you can present it to your Insurance Carrier to qualify for a substantial Rebate on your Homeowners premium. Some Carriers require an Additional wind mitigation form, OIR-B1-1802, commonly referred to as the 1802 form. Normally such an Inspection and Certification will cost between $175 and $320. But we as a Licensed and Certified Florida General Contractor can perform and sign these forms for you at NO Additional Cost.
A wind mitigation report informs the insurance company of a home’s construction in order to determine its stability in the event of strong winds. A homeowner with windstorm insurance can often submit the results of this report to their insurer and obtain discounts on their windstorm insurance. For instance, in Florida discounts may be applied for certain favorable wind mitigation features as mandated by State law and can total 45% of the original policy’s premium.
