Why You Should Install Impact Windows in Your Home

If you live in hurricane-prone areas like Miami and Broward, you are always taking a significant risk with nature. 

You never know when a storm will come and damage your home. But there is something you can do to make your home safer: impact windows. 

Here are six reasons why you should get impact windows for your home now:

Hurricane/storm protection

With storm-prone areas in Florida particularly susceptible to high-velocity winds that can devastate property, you need equally sturdy windows to combat the effect of the storms.

Impact windows are sturdy and don’t break, protecting your home from the dangers of category 3, 4, and 5 hurricanes.

Noise and UV reduction

Do you want a quiet place to relax when everything is busy? Impact windows make loud noises from the street quieter and block harmful rays from the sun. 

Impact windows are insulated against sound, making your home a true sanctuary protecting you from noise pollution. Plus, your nice furniture and pictures will thank you for the reduced exposure to surface-fading UV rays.

Enhanced energy efficiency

Inefficient windows consume a significant chunk of your home’s annual energy budget, which is why you need an energy-efficient solution.

Impact windows come with Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) reduction, making them effective at repelling solar radiation. This helps with energy saving as your HVAC system will work less to cool your home. 

Safety from burglars

Impact windows are highly efficient at keeping burglars away. With many layers of glass and other film, impact windows are very hard to break and are shatterproof. A burglary would take an extended amount of time to be successful, and burglars will likely give up trying.


Unlike traditional windows, impact windows are constructed with laminated glass and reinforced frames, enabling them to withstand the impact of high winds, debris, and other external forces. 

Their high durability ensures their longevity, minimizing the need for frequent window repair and replacement. Impact windows are also low-maintenance. 

They’re a long-term investment

While the cost of installing impact windows may be higher, they are a long-term investment. Besides helping you save money in the long run, impact windows have features like energy efficiency and noise reduction that can increase your home’s resale value

If you ever decide to put your home on the market, the presence of impact windows may help you get a better deal. Also, impact windows can get you a discount on your homeowners insurance policy, as the insurance company knows you'll be less likely to suffer broken windows or other damage.
