Here are some frequently asked questions about hurricane replacement windows:
Are Hurricane Windows More Expensive Than Regular Windows?
Hurricane windows offer more protection than standard windows. Therefore, hurricane windows do cost more upfront when compared to regular windows. However, this should not deter you—hurricane windows can help save you money over time.
How Much Will Hurricane Windows Cost?
Hurricane windows range in cost depending on how many windows you are having installed, the size of the windows that you need, and the manufacturer of the windows. To find out how much hurricane windows will cost for your home, contact Morgan Exteriors, and schedule a free windows consultation.
Are Impact Windows Required in Florida?
If you live within one mile of the coast or in areas with very high wind speeds, the answer is yes—impact windows are required. However, if you live in any other part of the state, it is not required to have impact windows in your home.
No matter where in Florida you reside, Morgan Exteriors does recommend impact windows for the sake of Florida’s heavy storms and annual hurricane season.
Should I Replace My Windows After a Hurricane?
You don’t have to replace your windows after a hurricane; however, it is recommended if your windows have been damaged. Cracked or otherwise broken windows can leave your home vulnerable to water damage, insect infestations, and air leakage (which leads to a spike in your energy bills).
What’s the Difference Between Hurricane Windows and Impact Windows?
While hurricane replacement windows and impact windows both offer wind protection, there are a few differences. A hurricane window must provide a specific level of wind resistance. Meanwhile, an impact window must provide protection against impacts such as debris.
