Standard Windows vs Impact Windows for Florida Homes

Wednesday, January 30, 2019


anderson coastal windowsWhen the time comes for you to window shop (literally), price is always going to be a factor – which is what leads some homeowners to choose standard windows instead of impact resistant windows for their homes.

While this could save money in the short term, come hurricane season it could be a costly mistake. That’s because impact windows, while still beautiful and similar to standard windows, are made to withstand high winds and the impact of flying objects – unlike standard windows. Although it is still possible to experience some damage, the result is likely to be less severe than if you had normal windows installed.

Though each brand offers different styles and options in their hurricane impact windows, all of them meet the strict standards required by the Miami-Dade Building Code. And with expert window installation provided by FAS, you can have some peace-of-mind that your home will be stronger than ever this storm season.

Other Benefits of Impact Windows

Storm protection isn’t the only benefit for impact resistant windows in Florida.

Impact windows can help offer a level of security and serenity that can’t be achieved with ordinary glass. They can help protect your home in a variety of different ways including: 

  • Reflecting harmful UV rays

  • Reducing noise pollution

  • Increasing the security of your home

From Our Customers

I've checked with other people who used FAS and they had good experiences with them, so I got windows, doors, and sliding glass doors from them. I had lots of weird-sized entrances, like in an old house, and I was able to customize my order. It was great and very easy with the sales rep. He walked me through all the products and the cost and helped me figure out what makes sense. Then he checked in and made sure everything was going well. The installation team got the work done fast and were super neat. And the products I got are fantastic.
