  • Florida has strict building codes, especially in high-velocity hurricane zones. People often look for products that meet or exceed these codes and carry certifications from recognized bodies, such as the Miami-Dade County Product Control.

  • Material and Durability 

  • Homeowners research the different materials used in impact windows and doors, such as aluminum, vinyl, and wood, and compare their durability, maintenance needs, and lifespan.

  • Energy Efficiency 

  • Impact windows and doors can significantly affect a home's energy efficiency. People look into the energy ratings, such as U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), to understand how these products can help reduce energy bills.

  • Cost and Financing Options

  • The cost of impact windows and doors is a major consideration. Homeowners research the prices of different brands and models, as well as available financing options, rebates, and incentives.

  • Aesthetics and Design Options

  •  Impact windows and doors come in various styles, colors, and finishes. People often look for products that match their home's architectural style and enhance curb appeal.

  • Noise Reduction 

  • Impact windows and doors can also provide soundproofing benefits. Homeowners research how well these products reduce outside noise, which is particularly important in busy or noisy neighborhoods.

  • Installation Process and Contractor Reputation 

  • The quality of installation is crucial for the performance of impact windows and doors. Homeowners research reputable contractors, read reviews, and check for proper licensing and insurance.

  • Warranty and After-Sales Service
