Living so near the Gulf Coast, the salty air can do a number on grills and patio furniture, can’t it? Outside furniture made from aluminum may escape some of the damage, but our grills suffer rust and corrosion pretty quickly if we don’t stay on top of cleaning them. It’s a good idea to clean the accumulated salt off your windows and frames outside, too. If not, you may be in need of window replacement sooner than later.
If your windows aren’t functioning properly or your panes are loose, it could be a sign of moisture problems. Of course, the age of your windows is also something to consider.
At some point, it’s a good idea to think about window replacement.

Built to take a punch
We manufacture our windows to meet Florida’s building code specifications for hurricane resistance. Moreover, we don’t just build your new windows, but we also install them. Impact windows are also known as hurricane resistant windows. They are constructed of two or more panes of tempered glass adhered on either side of a sheet of high-tech polymer.
Tempered glass doesn’t shatter to pieces sending shards flying through the air. Instead, it breaks into small, blunt-edged pellets. Thereby, greatly reducing the chance of injury. Furthermore, our windows undergo a series of tests. To pass, windows can crack, or even spiderweb, but they must not fly apart.
There’s no doubt that window replacement strengthens the structural integrity of your home. It can make the difference between whether or not your home stands up to the force of a hurricane. Moreover, it provides protection against a potential break-in. Replacing your windows with ones that are impact resistant is a great defense against would-be intruders. The chances are slim that they’ll hang around for a second attempt if the glass doesn’t break to pieces the first time.
There are other benefits that accompany window replacement.
- Energy efficiency – Your home will be more efficient at keeping the cool air from escaping and the heat stays outside where it belongs.
- Noise reduction – No more distractions from the neighborhood kids playing, barking dogs, traffic, or construction going on outside. You’ll be free to relax in peace.
- UV protection – No more worries about the sun shining through the windows and fading your furniture, carpet, or decor.
- Insurance premiums – The added storm protection is of value to insurance companies. This may mean a reduction in your premium. Check with your agent if you’re considering window replacement. They’ll let you know the required specifications.
Can I install my new windows myself?
Window installation is a job that requires precision. Measurements must be precise. In addition, it’s important to ensure that the windows are installed square and level. If not, they will not function properly. Also, we’ve trained our crew to meet our high standards of installation. Installing them yourself will void our lifetime warranty. We’d also like to take a moment to mention the fact that window replacement is a dangerous job. Standing on a ladder and working with your hands might lead to a fall. Our crew is expertly trained to install your windows safely.
Will the area around my window be affected?
If you’re using a different size window, we may need to make the space larger or smaller. However, you can be sure we aren’t just there to pop in the new windows and disappear. We make sure you think everything looks perfect before we go.
How much will my new windows cost?
The cost of your windows depends on the style you choose. The number of windows you are replacing enters into the equation as well. Our free estimate will provide you with all the answers.
What do I need to do before you arrive?
It’s a big help if the inside work areas are clear of furniture and wall decor before we arrive. This allows our crew to get right to work! We know you’re looking forward to the finished product.
Will someone need to be at home while you’re there?
Yes, please. We require that an adult be present during the installation process. It’s good to have someone on-site if questions arise. Also, we will be inside your home and feel it’s best to have you there as well.
I’ll be taking off work on installation day. Can my employer expect me back when I say I’ll be there?
Yes. We realize that your time is important to you and your boss! We also appreciate your business. Barring unforeseen circumstances, such as the weather, you can rest assured we’ll complete the job in the allotted amount of time.
What happens to the old windows?
The adage “out with the old, in with the new,” applies here. We leave you with your beautiful new windows and all the old windows and other debris leave with us. We dispose of everything at the landfill.
