A Complete Guide to Impact Windows in Southwest Florida
Looking for the right impact windows for your home in Southwest, Florida? Contact Guardian Hurricane Protection at 239-438-4732 / 239-244-2015.

What is the Importance of High-Quality Impact Windows?

In Florida, impact windows are essential to protect family and property against severe weather storms and hurricanes. Installing impact windows is a simple and cost-effective solution offering several benefits.


  • Convenience
  • Energy Efficiency Improvement
  • Financial Gains
  • Future Repair Cost Decrease
  • Outdoor Noise Reduction
  • Security
  • Storm Protection 
  • UV Ray Protection


Is Self-Installation Required for Impact Windows?

Replacing wood, vinyl, or metal windows requires skill and training. From accurate window measurements to lifting materials, generally window installation is a two-person job. Though Do-It-Yourself installation is possible, hiring professionals is recommended.    


Are Impact Windows Worth It?

Installing impact windows is a worthy investment that makes life safer and easier. Most people take time to prepare their homes before a storm arrives. Impact windows only require a one-time installation for year-round protection.


Do Impact Windows Save Money On Homeowner's Insurance?

Impact windows save money on homeowner's insurance. As stated on Florida Statute 627.0629(1), it is a requirement for insurance companies to offer credits, or other rate differentials for construction techniques that reduce damage and loss in windstorms.     


Can Impact Windows Withstand Category 5 Hurricanes?

Impact windows are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions particularly hurricanes. They are scientifically tested and proven with storm simulations to ensure strength and high-quality performance under different hurricane categories. However, it is important to remember that impact-resistant windows are impact-resistant, but not impact-proof.
