Impact windows are specially designed to protect your home from high winds or hurricanes. Homes with Miami/Dade or Florida Building Code-approved products are 40% less likely to be damaged during a storm and all new constructions in Florida are required to have storm protection.
But, what about homeowner’s insurance?
Can impact windows save you money on your homeowner’s insurance? Yes, they can. However, there are some specific steps you need to take.
Once you have picked and installed your impact windows, it is necessary to get your home inspected by a State Licensed Mitigator. The Mitigator will inspect your home and fill out a Storm Mitigation Application. This application is what homeowner insurance companies use to calculate how much you will save on your insurance.
So remember, if you purchase and install new impact windows for your home, you must get the improvement inspected by a State Licensed Mitigator before you can start saving money. Call 561.594.1540 for more information.
