Florida home exterior Windows are a part of your home’s envelope and work to help keep it well insulated and sealed from harsh outdoor elements, such as extreme temperatures, wind-borne debris, and unwanted intruders. However, your installations will only function as well as they are built and you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for quality. 

Several window styles will complement your Florida home, and by installing high-performance installations, you can improve your home’s energy performance, security, and more. 

Before listing the various window styles that are perfect for your Florida home, it is important to know which glass features to invest in—energy efficiency and hurricane protection. Both of these features can be accomplished by choosing impact glass installations.

Impact glass replacement windows are ideal for creating a tighter seal to better regulate your home’s temperature, your comfort, and even lower your energy bills. 

Hurricane Protection

Florida is also known for having devastating hurricane seasons resulting in severe home damage. Impact glass windows help better secure your home’s envelope because they are nearly impenetrable to hurricane-force winds and wind-borne debris—especially for homes located in high-velocity hurricane zones (HVHZ).
