HURRICANE IMPACT WINDOW INSTALLATION

INSTALLING HURRICANE IMPACT WINDOWS

We provide professional installation of impact windows for homes and businesses, including multi-level buildings.

Installing impact windows might appear to be the same as any other window installation job. However, impact window installation presents challenges that require more than a typical skill set. Impact windows can’t simply be fitted into place — their load must be transferred to the building structure itself. Each window must be securely attached to the building.

Impact Window
Installation Process

Impact windows are thicker and much heavier than standard double-pane windows; they have heavy-duty aluminum frames to support them in hurricane-force winds. It’s a challenge to handle the additional weight of these windows.

Unlike other windows, it’s extremely important to be sure they are leveled after installation. They have a large number of screws to secure them in place, to make sure they hold up against hurricane winds. The screws used must be in code as well and are longer and thicker than standard fasteners. The closer the building is to the coast, the more screws will be used in the installation process.

Windows must have a tight fit with proper sealing around frames to keep the water out. Caulk and flash stripping are used to keep frames and windows as watertight as possible.

If you’re replacing old windows with impact windows, keep in mind that removing old windows can be tricky as well, and dry fitting steps should be performed. Any deviance from manufacturers’ installation requirements will void the product’s warranty and impact the windows’ effectiveness.

Strong, Durable, and Beautifully
Designed Impact Windows

All impact windows are manufactured to hold up against “missile tests” that measure their ability to withstand flying debris. Requirements are different for windows that are 30 feet above and below the ground; we make sure that all tests are done properly.

Just because our impact windows are strong doesn’t mean they aren’t beautiful! We sell a variety of exquisitely designed windows you’ll be proud to have in your home and/or business premises. Here’s what we offer:

  • Casement Windows
    These are attached to frames with hinges that let them open to the left or right.
  • Horizontal Rollers
    Windows with tracks that move them from left to right, that can have a fixed center panel.
  • Window Wall
    Windows that extend from floor to ceiling in place of an actual wall.

I had a great experience with Ocean Impact! Living right outside of Boston I was a little skeptical to work with an... out-of-state company, however Jared and Aleana were great to work with, and were very responsive. We ordered a double French door, and it was exactly what we were looking for! Great quality, much more energy efficient and secure compared to our traditional wood french door. Manufacturing and shipping was a little slower than we would like, however this was expected during the pandemic and they communicated this to us as well. Overall we were very happy with our purchase and the finished product looks amazing. I would highly recommend them.read more

I dealt with Jared, he tried charging me half of the fees he claims he paid for an expediter (which he wanted to... inflate the costs of said fees he paid). He said he would send me pictures of the job and he never did. They also included lift fee in the contract that they never used, the company claimed that they never installed windows from the inside out and they did just that! Finally, he tried to charge me an additional fee for painting around the windows where the wall was damaged due to their work. The website clearly advertises that they provide post installation services INCLUDING PAINT TOUCH-UP and I receive an email from the company stating it was not written in my contract and therefore I must pay for it! Terrible customer service and they try to charge hidden fees and call their permits and fees by different names to RIP customers OFF!!Do NOT HIRE These people!read more

I’d like toTake this opportunity to tell everyone what a great job Jared and family did when replacing our impact... windows and doors in Sunny Isle Beach. In this COVID environment they went above and beyond to follow protocol, including storing the windows we ordered for an extended time in their warehouse until such time as we were ready and comfortable with having workers onsite to execute on the replacement. They were also patient and diligent when responding to all the special handling requirements introduced by the board of directors of Winston Towers, including pre and post installation reviews and inspections. They communicated effectively with all the stakeholders involved in the project, building engineer, office manager, township representative and ourselves to not deliver a high quality experience . Special thanks to Alina, their office manager, who was extremely helpful in supporting all wire transfer activity. Also shout out to Jared and the Pilch family for earning our trust and friendship. Wishing them continued success!,!, Best wishes, Jimmy Neiraread more

Great family company that shows up on time! They get in and out having you back in a clean house after they’ve finished... . They do this by covering the furniture and setting up dust barriers. Price is very reasonable. HIGHLY recommend hiring this company!read more
