Why replace my windows?
One of the best ways to increase the value of your home is window replacement. Most homes have outdated aluminum windows with non-impact glass. These windows wouldn’t pass the building codes in Florida for hurricane protection today. Installing new windows which have vinyl frames and impact glass will provide hurricane protection, and increase the value of your home. Also it will lower your energy bills by making your home more energy efficient.
Florida Building Code Requirements in 2021
Window installation in our area must meet strict building codes that specify energy efficiency and impact regulations. Products you install in your home must have a Florida product approval code. Our products are all highly tested and approved for our hurricane zone in Pinellas County and Hillsborough County.
Must be in compliance with Florida Building code in order to pass inspection.
- Refer to R4410.1 of Chapter 14 in the “Florida Building Code, Building” book. (HVHZ Glass and Glazing specifications)
Also the replacement windows must be in compliance with 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) in order to pass inspection. Refer to the following:
- R402.1 for specifics on U-Factor requirements for insulating.
- R402.3.1 through R402.3.5 for Fenestration criteria.
- R402.2.1.1 for specific criteria on air sealing and insulation.
- R402.4.3 for Fenestration air leakage
- R402.5 for maximum Fenestration U-Factor and SHGC
Why choose vinyl replacement windows?
Vinyl window replacement is our specialty. If you have old aluminum windows, it may be time to upgrade. Vinyl windows are much better than aluminum because they are more energy efficient and require less maintenance. Aluminum frames wont pass Florida building code requirements. When replacing your windows, be sure to get vinyl frame replacement windows from Karoly Windows & Doors.

Vinyl Replacement Windows: Brands We Trust
There are technological advancements for replacement windows that homeowners in coastal areas of Florida can utilize to protect their homes. Simonton StormBreaker Plus® Hurricane Impact Resistant Vinyl Windows is our most installed window solution. Another recommended product is our PGT Winguard® Vinyl Double Hung Windows. Both of these impact windows can withstand repeated impact from a nine-pound beam traveling at 34 miles per hour, followed by hurricane-force winds of over 110mph. Even though the glass is damaged, the glass remains securely in its frame, keeping the elements outside. For more information, click the links below.
Free Upgraded Glass! ($50 value per window)
Simonton’s product line is a favorite among our customers and our installers alike. They come standard with ProSolar Low E protection. With Karoly Windows & Doors, all Simonton windows get a FREE upgrade to ProSolar Shade glass. This extra level protection adds a additional barrier between your home and the harmful UV rays of the Florida sun, giving your hurricane resistant windows added energy efficiency. Your new hurricane rated replacement windows are also filled with Argon gas. This gas is more dense then air and works better at insulating your home. It gives the impact window a higher energy efficiency rating.
Energy Efficient Windows
Both PGT and Simonton are Energy Star Partners. Their vinyl windows are all highly energy efficient and exceed Florida building standards. The vinyl frames of the PGT WinGuard series and the Simonton StormBreaker Plus are top of the line in the window industry. They are durable and low maintenance. With impact rated, triple pane glass, and maximum solar protection, these brands are the best replacement windows on the market.

Is the owner a general contractor or a glass and glazing specialty contractor? What kind of brands of replacement windows do they offer and how are their warranties? Are they transparent about costs and manufacturing lead times? Do your due diligence and make sure the price reasonable and the company is the right one for your replacement windows project.
