Reducing Home Ownership Insurance Costs
Owning a home can be a considerable financial responsibility, and with the increasing cost of homeownership, it’s essential to find ways to save money in the long run. One of the simplest ways to save money is by investing in impact-resistant windows.
These windows provide added security and safety for your home and have the potential to lower your homeowners insurance costs.

Impact-Resistant Windows Can Qualify You for Discounts
One of the primary savings with impact-resistant windows is the potential to qualify for insurance discounts. Many insurance companies offer discounts when you upgrade to impact-resistant windows, as they can withstand higher levels of damage caused by natural disasters like hurricanes, making your home less risky to insure.
In Florida, wind mitigation insurance credits are available to homeowners who replace all glazed openings with impact-resistant windows and doors, which can result in up to 30% of wind load policy savings each year.
And the Florida home-hardening sales tax exemption, which is currently in effect until June 30, 2024, provides homeowners with additional savings when they upgrade to impact-resistant windows.
Many utility companies also offer rebates for energy-efficient windows, which Florida building and energy codes require as a feature of your impact-resistant windows.
How Impact-Resistant Windows Are Made
Impact-resistant windows have multiple panes of glass, with a layer of durable material, typically polyvinyl butyral (PVB), in between. The number of glass panes varies but is typically between two and three.
The PVB layer helps keep the glass panels together in case of impact, providing added protection against debris and wind.
In addition to the PVB layer, some manufacturers offer added layers of protection, such as laminated glass and impact-resistant coatings. These extra layers provide additional protection against shattering and improve the window’s strength and durability in adverse weather conditions.
