5What are the benefits of installing impact windows?
In addition to hurricane protection, installing impact resistant windows and doors provides other important benefits.
- Noise reduction: Whether it’s loud boats driving past your backyard, noisey streets or the neighbors dog that sometimes likes to bark continuously, impact windows can help with reducing outdoor noise and give you peace and quiet while you’re at home.
- UV protection: The sun can do more than heat up your home and increase your bills. It can fade treasured art, lighten the fabric of your curtains, rugs and upholstered furniture. Impact windows with a glaze can help prevent this.
- Energy efficiency: Hurricane windows can improve energy efficiency (that means cost savings on your electric bill).
- Security: They can also increase the protection of your home by providing additional security. Since impact windows are harder to shatter and break, they could protect you and your family from potential break-ins.
6How can I tell if I need new windows?
Here are some sure signs that your old windows need to be replaced:

- Drafty, you can hear or feel air leaking through or around the window
- Excessive condensation on the inside of the window panes

7Will replacement windows really pay for themselves?
If you select high-quality, energy-efficient windows, your windows will “pay back” your investment in savings by lowering your cooling and heating bills. Well-built residential windows developed by quality manufacturers have been proven to lower home energy consumption which means more money in your pocket!
