Replacement Windows in Clearwater Florida
Replacing windows can be a major expense when it comes to home renovation but they may be the single most important part of your project. Your windows need to protect your home from outside elements as well as provide light and access to the outdoors. Original windows may not be up to new Florida building codes for wind debris zones. If your home was built prior to 2010, chances are your windows wouldn’t pass a building inspection.
Clearwater Building Requirements
To meet the minimum building code requirements for Clearwater, your windows must be highly energy efficient and the glass must be impact rated. We offer all of our Clearwater home owners a FREE glass upgrade for Simonton windows, taking the standard ProSolar glass to a ProSolar Shade Low E glass which exceeds the minimum requirement. PGT windows get an FREE glass upgrade from EnergyShield to EnergyShield Max glass to ensure their windows exceed the minimum requirement as well. Our windows are always vinyl frame windows with an aluminum tube reinforcement on the inside of the frame for added strength. Vinyl replacement windows exceed building code requirements for Clearwater.

Impact Replacement Windows in Clearwater
Houses in Clearwater are required by Florida building code to use impact rated glass. Impact windows hold up to a hurricane with Category 5 winds of over 140 mph. Even if your window is broken by flying debris, impact glass will not let any air or water come to your house. The protective laminating holds the glass in place when shattered by an object. We recommend impact replacement windows in Clearwater to everyone who wants to protect their home from severe weather and burglary attempts. Keep your most valuable asset and the people you love safe with impact rated replacement windows in Clearwater from Karoly Windows & Doors.
I’m only doing a few windows, can’t I save money buy ordering non-impact?
There is only one instance where installing non-impact windows in Clearwater is acceptable. If you are replacing under 25% of the glass in your home, non-impact is permitted. In order to see if your small window replacement project would qualify, schedule an in-home consultation with Karoly. He will measure all of the windows in your home, calculate the square footage of glass and see if your project falls under the 25% rule. Keep in mind, we do have a 4 window minimum order requirement to order custom built non-impact vinyl replacement windows.

Replacement Windows in Clearwater: All About Grids
Traditionally, grids were wooden mullions that made multiple small panes of glass into one large window. Technological advances in the window industry have made it possible to make and transport large windows, eliminating the need to piece together windows with mullions.
Presently, people still use grids to enhance the beauty of their windows. The grids can come in between the glass panes for easy cleaning. Alternatively, they can contour over the glass for a more traditional look.
