Will New Windows Save Money on Homeowners Insurance?
Wondering if an investment in new, impact-resistant windows for your home will generate savings on your homeowners policy?
Absolutely! Most insurance companies servicing Florida residential and commercial properties recognize the value of storm windows.
Why? Here is the reason:
The standard, builder-grade windows that your home likely has are not strong enough to withstand high winds and heavy rains. In contrast, new storm-resistant, dual-layered windows and doors are designed to withstand coastal weather and prevent wind, wave, and water damage. Water may penetrate the first layer of glass, but the protective second layer can keep your property dry, averting major home damage and costs associated with flooding.
Homeowners insurance companies know all about the high costs of significant damage caused by hurricanes and other storms in higher-risk coastal regions. In fact, it is more cost-effective for insurance companies to reduce your premiums as an incentive for you to install new storm-resistant windows — than to take the risk of covering potential home damage caused by hurricanes or other storms. Consequently, many insurance companies offer discounted premiums or credits to homeowner policies when homeowners make preventative home upgrades using protective impact-resistant glass windows designed to withstand heavy rain and wind.
An investment in protective storm windows for your South Florida home will not only save you money on insurance, it will also save you cash and headaches in multiple ways:
1. Minimizes the time, effort, and cost of cleaning up a home after a storm
2. Keeps your home cool with energy efficiency that lowers electricity bills
3. Adds value to the price of your home
In addition, impact-resistant glass windows provide several other tangible benefits:
• Extend the life of insulated windows
• Act as a theft deterrent
• Reduce noise from the outside
• Help protect furniture and décor from fading and discoloration
• Improve exterior appearance and curb appeal
• Reduce infiltration of outside air so that air conditioning units can work at lower capacity
