Hurricane Rated Impact Windows
According to the International Hurricane Protection Association, once winds get inside a home during a hurricane, the roof – and most of the home’s structure – most likely will not survive. Pressure build-up will cause these elements to separate, devastating a home in a matter of seconds.
The windows are one of the first breaches of the building envelope during a wind event. Non-impact windows won’t stand up to the wind, weather, and flying debris the way hurricane impact windows will. Having hurricane impact windows can be the difference between preserving family safety and possessions and loosing everything you love.

Simonton Hurricane Impact Window Replacement
When hurricane season comes, having hurricane impact windows can help eliminate the stress of protecting your family and home. In our opinion, the best of the best is Simonton’s StormBreaker Plus Hurricane Impact Windows. StormBreaker Plus windows and doors meet and exceed standards for Florida Building Codes.
Only the best for our customers!
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 and doors 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 impact windows added energy efficiency. Your new hurricane impact windows are also filled with Argon gas. Argon gas is more dense then air and works better at insulating your home. It gives hurricane impact windows a higher energy efficiency rating.
PGT Hurricane Impact Window Replacement
The only other window brand we promote and stand behind is the PGT WinGuard Vinyl collection. They are very similar to Simonton StormBreaker Plus. They are made from a very strong vinyl with multiple chambers in the frame, maximizing its durability. We also provide a FREE glass upgrade to Energy Sheild Max glass that qualifies your windows for energy rebates through your electric company. New windows cost about the same as Simonton. PGT does offer a double hung window as well as single hung.

A Look Through the Glass: Hurricane Impact Window Glass
- ProSolar® Low E Glass coatings reflect infrared light keeping heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer. It can also reduce fading of carpet, artwork and photos by helping block damaging ultraviolet rays.
- Double-strength Annealed or Tempered Glass is much stronger than real glass making it more durable and suitable for other uses.
- Argon gas helps insulate a room and minimize the transfer of heat through the window. It’s a colorless, odorless gas and not harmful in any way if leaking should occur.
- Laminated glass significantly improves a window’s ability to withstand breakage, adds color and sound control, and helps meet building codes and requirements.
- Intercept® Spacer provides a superior tight seal against stress caused by thermal expansion, has superior strength and stability between the panes and is a temperature buffer – preventing the transfer of hot and cold from one separated pane to another.
