Installing hurricane impact doors and windows can provide added protection for your home during hurricane season. It’s always important to be prepared prior to the start of hurricane season, but in reality, there’s always still time to install hurricane impact doors and windows.
If you live in an area prone to hurricanes like here in Florida, it’s essential to have hurricane impact windows and doors. Coastal regions in Florida, particularly those along the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, are more susceptible to hurricanes.
Hurricane season typically runs from June 1st to November 30th, with the peak of the season occurring between August and October. If hurricane season is approaching, it’s best to act quickly to install impact-resistant doors and windows.
The cost of installing hurricane impact doors and windows can vary significantly depending on the size of your home, the quality of the materials, and the complexity of the installation. Be sure to budget for this expense.
Finding a reputable contractor who specializes in hurricane impact installations can be a challenge, especially during the height of hurricane season. It’s a good idea to start the process early to secure a contractor.
Depending on your location, you may need permits to install hurricane impact doors and windows. Obtaining these permits can take time, so plan accordingly.
Impact-resistant doors and windows are often custom-made to fit your home’s specifications. This customization process can also add to the lead time.
Most high and lo rise condominiums are a community with a homeowner’s association (HOA), so you may need to adhere to their rules and regulations when making exterior modifications to your home. Check with your HOA before proceeding.

Contact a reputable contractor such as us here at Complete General Contracting Group, and we can obtain necessary permits, and budgeting for the project.
