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.

My wife and I are very satisfied with the efficiency, integrity, and professionalism of everyone at Ocean Impact Windows and Doors. They offered reasonable estimates, worked by permit, never had a problem with their work passing inspection, they cleaned up at the end of each work day and they made every effort to ensure that we were satisfied with our investment when they finished the project. This is truly a reputable company. We are repeat customers. We hired Ocean Impact Windows & Doors to install hurricane impact windows at our house in 2018 and hurricane impact doors in 2019. We highly recommend this outstanding company.read more

Ocean Impact replaced all of the windows in my house - 12 total. They did a great job and I'm happy. They showed up on time (actually early) each day cleaned up after themselves each day, were very respectful to my house and my belongings. They worked hard to try to keep everything as clean as possible and did a great job with everything, they were a good crew. Angel did the finishing touches to the windows and is an artist, the way he finished the windows makes them look like they've always been in the house. I'm very happy I chose Ocean Impact Windows.read more

I was very impressed with the Ocean Impacts team. They explained everything from start to finish so thoroughly. From the proposal stage to the installation and finishing up. Nothing was left out. Their showroom was helpful as well. Actually, what I like the best is that they are a family owned business and take pride in their work.read more

Ocean Impact was recommended to me by my sister in law. They replaced 7 French doors and 2 windows in my house, and did an amazing job. What makes them stand out from other companies is that they own the job from start to finish, and don’t leave anything unfinished. Any paint, patching, cleanup, adjustments necessary, they make sure they leave you needing absolutely nothing else. No calling a handy man to finish up. All their employees were great. On time every day, neat, thorough and pro active. Never missed a beat. Would highly recommend them to anyone.read more

We used Ocean Impact to replace all the windows and doors in our house this year. Although it was a large project, I was impressed with the price and estimated timeline to complete the job. Ocean impact stayed within the budget and got all the windows and doors in painlessly. The workers were pleasant, and the management kept me informed of everything throughout the process.Now our home is cooler, quieter, and protected from hurricanes!Thanks Ocean Impact!read more

When I was doing my house renovation in El Portal last year, I interviewed 3 other impact windows and impact door companies in Miami, and only Ocean Impact was able to provide me with truly satisfied customers and their feedback. Listen, this stuff is expensive, sure, but these guys worked within my budget and my renovation went off without a hitch. You always get what you pay for, and as far as I'm concerned, these guys were amazing from beginning to the end, and my windows and doors (Cat 5) are an amazing value and the house looks great. Truly a five-star experience with Jared and team. Thanks again guys.read more
