FAQ
Q:1  What are the benefits of installing impact windows and doors on my home or condo?
A:1   * Effortless hurricane protection * Insurance reductions * Energy savings * Noise reduction * Burglar resistant * Add value to your home
Q:2  Can I get regular non-impact windows installed and save money?
A:2  Regular old style windows donít have any of the benefits of impact windows. Additionally building code will only allow old fashioned windows to be installed on your home if you have had shutters installed after September 1st 1994 with a permit on record. If you donít have existing permitted shutters then you would have to have shutters installed at the same time that you have non-impact windows installed. Once you look at the cost of this double installation we think youíll find the cost savings as well as the many other benefits will be found by installing impact windows.
Q:3  Why should we select Florida Impact Windows and Doors instead of some other company?
A:3  Florida Impact Windows and Doors is able to offer more competitive pricing than our competitors by keeping our overhead low and extending our volume discounts from the manufacturers to our customers. We set high standards in our employees and it shows in the finished products we install in your home or condo.
Q:4  How do I know which brand or type of hurricane impact windows and doors will be best for my home?
A:4  Our staff of installers guided by our designer and General Contractor will point out the features and benefits of each type of window and door that may be suitable for your particular application. Additionally we have different grades of windows to meet your budget and the style of your home. We will be able to provide samples to show how each type of window looks and operates.
Q:5  What do I need to do to be ready for the window installers to come to my home?
A:5  In order to perform the impact window installation we will need about 2.5 feet in front of each window on the inside for access. If you have heavy furniture within this area our window installation team will move these items for you. Window treatments will need to be taken down until the installation of your new energy efficient, storm windows is complete. If you have any shrubbery on the outside that would block access to the windows then that will need to be trimmed away before we arrive for the installation.
Q:6  Is there anything I should do after the installation of impact windows?
A:6  The caulking around the window frame will need about 24-48 hours to cure depending upon temperature. During this time please donít clean the windows. You will see a sticker on every new impact window and door; please leave that in place until the final inspection by your municipality has been completed. After the final inspection and 48 hours has passed then rest assured that all of our impact windows and doors will give you many years of maintenance free service.
Q:7  How long will it take to order new impact windows and get them installed?
A:7  From the day you hire Florida Impact Windows and Doors to handle your installation it will take about three weeks to have every item we need delivered to our warehouse. Once we have all of your impact windows and doors in our warehouse we will call you to schedule the installation at your convenience. Depending upon the size of your home or condo the installation of the windows and doors could take one to three days to complete.
Q:8  Do impact windows and doors come with screens?
A:8  Our sliding glass doors can be ordered with or without screens. All of the other impact windows and doors all come with screens.
Q:9  Can someone break into my home after I have the impact windows installed?
A:9  Impact windows are made with a special type of glass composed of two layers of glass with a tough, transparent plastic inner layer between the two sheets of glass. This cannot be penetrated to gain access without special tools made for this purpose which firemen carry. In order to penetrate this type of glass firemen would use a special chainsaw which makes a tremendous amount of noise. Therefore it seems logical that a burglar would not be likely to have this specific type of chainsaw or the desire to create the tremendous amount of attention getting noise that a chainsaw makes.
Q:10  Does Florida Impact Windows and Doors offer any other remodeling services?
A:10  Yes. Florida Impact Windows and Doors is a General Contractor that has other divisions within the company that handle other remodeling services
