Where Should I Install Impact Windows and Doors in My Home?

When it comes to installing impact doors, every home is different and usually presents different challenges for specialists. Despite the difficulties and requirements that may exist, the installation of impact doors and windows creates an additional layer of security for you and your family as well as your possessions. As one of South Florida’s industry leaders, V & V Windows can have a specialist visit your home and evaluate your specific needs to ensure that you install the proper product. It is essential that all entry points to your property are protected. 

The best option for any homeowner is to protect your home from hurricane and tropical storm damage with impact doors and windows. You need impact-resistant glass in a door whose orientation has any exposure to high winds and flying debris. However, since hurricanes and tropical storms can be so unpredictable, your best option is to ensure that every door and window in your home is protected from these elements. After all, it’s always best to be cautious and not take a chance.

Be aware of Florida Building Codes

As a service to our customers, our team explains the local area codes for Broward and Miami-Dade counties as they are well-known for their strict building codes and construction requirements. Fixtures of this type are required to pass a range of durability tests in order to determine how resilient they are against flying debris and high winds. As an example, let’s assume that your windows are less than 30 feet above ground level and given the nature and unpredictability of a hurricane, these windows must pass what is known as a “large-missile debris test.”  

A recently published article was touting the fact that coastal area homes constructed after this code was implemented sustained 64% less damage than those homes that were constructed prior to its passage. This brings up an additional point, namely ensuring that you are dealing with a company that knows the Florida building codes and regulations. And that is why it is essential to call in the experts to install impact windows and doors as it is not a DIY job. Our professionals understand the job and have the necessary skills and licenses to complete the installation correctly.
