Impact-Rated Replacement Windows for Homes in Cape Coral, FL
If you’re searching for replacement windows for your home, there are many factors to consider. For residents of Florida’s Gulf Coast, one of the most important is how they’ll fare in the face of high humidity and severe weather such as hurricanes. As a locally-owned window company, Storm Shield is very familiar with the needs of Florida homeowners. As such, we specialize in beautiful impact-rated replacement windows that will better protect your Cape Coral, Florida, home from inclement weather without sacrificing the curb appeal of your home.
What’s a Hurricane Window?
Hurricane windows, also called impact-rated or impact windows, have been tested for their ability to withstand a high-speed impact from debris and maintain their integrity. They don’t differ much from other replacement windows in terms of appearance, but they’re built with stronger, impact-resistant glass and a tighter seal to resist high winds. At Storm Shield, our products are Miami-Dade County-certified, which means they have been tested to withstand wind speeds of up to 180 mph.
The Right Windows for Your Home
Besides their ability to stand up to storms, the best thing about hurricane windows is that they’re just as customizable as other replacement windows. You can choose the color, design, grille layout, and hardware of your new windows. They’re also available in many of the most popular styles, including:
We are one of few window companies that work enhanced features into our replacement windows to better serve Florida homeowners. Our hurricane replacement windows offer additional benefits besides protection from storms, such as:
Made with impact-resistant Miracle Glass™, our windows resist breaking, whether because of impacts from storm-tossed debris or someone attempting unauthorized entry. They are rated to withstand Category 5 hurricanes, so these replacement windows are virtually unbreakable.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates inefficient windows waste as much as 30% of energy use. Our hurricane windows are designed with dual-glazed, argon-insulated glass to let light in while keeping heat and cold out, helping to keep your home comfortable year-round. Virgin vinyl frames facilitate a better seal to prevent drafts and condensation. Additionally, thanks to these glass and frame reinforcements, our hurricane windows are very energy efficient—to the point of saving you money on heating and cooling costs and being ENERGY STAR® certified.
The hardy vinyl frames of our windows are less prone to warping and twisting than other frames, even when faced with the humid conditions of Florida. We ensure longer-lasting protection by using an industry-leading stainless steel spacer system that reduces the failure rate of our windows. You can expect these replacement windows to last decades with virtually no maintenance.
