Basically, many people are not aware of whether or not they ALREADY qualify for discounts to their property insurance. If not, an inspection will identify exactly what you would need to do to get a discount, plus how large that discount would be.

"I overpaid on my premiums for about five years!" said Nancy Dominguez, who is now the Managing Director of FAPIA (the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters). Without even getting any new impact glass products, she saved $800 per year, according to this article in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper.




Why do insurance companies give discounts for impact glass windows and doors?

The short answer is rather obvious: if you properly use impact glass all over your building or home, that will save the insurance company lots of money. So, they can pass that savings on to you.



The basic issue is that during hurricanes and other high-wind storms (including tornadoes), it is common for an object like a fence post or a tree branch to be flying around at high speeds. If such a projectile crashes in to a standard glass door or window, the glass will crack and allow wind directly in to the interior of the home or building. That will often result in the roof getting lifted off the top of the home (kind of like a balloon popping). If that happens, then everything inside can get blown away (or at least get drenched). Below are some extra visuals to help you understand:

If ALL of your windows and doors qualify for the discount, it can save you close to half of your previous insurance rate. Every single window and door must qualify in order to get the discount (because even a single breach can be enough to result in high winds entering your house and ripping your roof off, as shown below).

Further, it is not just the quality of the materials that must meet the requirements for the discount, but the quality of the installation. By the way, the requirements are generally set by the state government and then the insurance companies simply use those guidelines (which is good for you because it means that the insurance company cannot suddenly change the guidelines to disqualify you).

"You may be eligible for discounts [to your insurance rates].... Plus you will better protect your family," said Lynne McChristian of Tampa. She is the Florida representative for the Insurance Information Institute.

About our products:

Why are our glass doors and windows so affordable? The simple answer is that you will order them directly from our manufacturing facilities.

Why is ordering direct from the factory so important? For standard-sized glass doors and windows, you will save a lot of money over buying them from retailers (who have to raise their prices far above wholesale prices).

Plus, for unusual shapes, we will custom-build your glass doors and windows. Even if you need custom sizes, our impact glass doors and windows are discounted to be the best value in the industry.

Need installers?

We have factory-certified installation crews throughout Florida, Texas, other stormy states, & even Caribbean islands (like the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, & Turks and Caicos.)
