Are you in the market to upgrade your windows and energy efficiency is a top priority? Look no further. Our windows, with their low-e coating and triple seals, prevent the sun’s damaging rays from entering your home. This keeps it at the perfect temperature year round, reduces your electric bill, and protects your furnishings from sun damage.
What are energy efficient widows?
Energy efficient windows have special features that block the sun’s damaging rays while still allowing the visible light through. First, they have rigid and strong frames that, when installed, stay sealed and prevent gaps that allow air and water to penetrate your walls and home. Second, they have an extensive sealing system for each panel of glass that prevents your climate controlled air from escaping. And third, low-e coating.
Our Low-e Coating is a special material applied to the glass that affects the transference of different wavelengths of light.
Infrared is light you can’t see with your eyes but is the wavelength that carries heat. Heat that, if not blocked, enters your home through your windows. Do you have pets that like to lie in the sun? It warms them. It also warms your home. There is a tremendous amount of heat that comes in through unprotected glass. Many of our customers save about 40% on their electric bill after we install new windows. You simply will not believe the quality of our coating and the results you experience.
The other important wavelength of light is UV. We’ve heard a lot about it relating to sunburns and SPF protection for our skin. UV also damages your curtains, carpets, furniture, and even wood floors if it is allowed to shine on them without any protection. Our Low-e coating also blocks UV light. This protects your belongings from being bleached and damaged by the sun making your carpets, drapes and anything else near your windows last much longer.
If you have old, single pane windows in your home chances are they are leaking your climate controlled air through gaps and cracks in the seals. Do you have spots wher you can feel air moving on windy days? That is your money going, literally, right out the window.
Frames Not only are new windows more rigid than old windows but the frames themselves are welded with technology that didn’t even exist when your home was built. This makes them super strong. New windows are made to protect your home and belongings while allowing light in and an unobstructed view out.
Many homes in Florida have single pane, aluminum frame windows that were installed and sealed when the home was built. Over the years that seal breaks down. Our new windows have multiple seals, not just one. They interlock providing a long lasting seal.
New windows are double and triple paned glass. Both include a space filled with inert gas that acts as insulator. If you opt to go with impact resistant windows a third pane is added. The outer layer of glass is actually two panes fused together with a laminate that prevents penetration into your home even if the glass is broken. Just as it keeps out flying debris during a storm it also keeps criminals from breaking in. An added benefit is the peace and quiet it provides.
When remodeling in Florida, impact protection is required in most places. You can choose impact-resistant windows or double pane windows with a protective shield. This is a more economical way to meet building codes that require impact protection. It is a custom fit, rip-stop fabric that prevents objects from smashing into the home. Our windows shields are Code-certified to provide complete confidence.

We specialize in products made for Florida’s extreme weather. We’ve been doing it since the building code changes of 2011. It’s what we do.
Durashield non-impact resistant windows are one of the most secure and energy-efficient windows on the market next to our impact-resistant. This style of window is for the more budget minded consumer where the added expense of having the full impact protection built into the the glass is more expensive than the project calls for.
For these applications we offer our non-impact windows that still have many of the features our impact resistant windows have but do not have the laminate in the layers of glass.
Here are the important features in our non-impact windows:
Low-E Glass meaning they help your home comfortable by eliminating extraneous heat or cold.
Non-impact windows have 2 panes of sealed glass for insulation.
Between the 2 panes there is an inert gas filling the space, usually argon or krypton for insulating properties.
The frames are the same, durable, super well constructed frames made of virgin vinyl with multiple seals.
If you still have the original, single pane windows in your home you just will not believe the difference this technology makes. The windows can be nearly as rigid and strong as the walls of your home and provide remarkable peace and quiet. But what you will really notice if your first, full months utility bill once they are installed!
Another important factor in installing new windows is how much they reduce the energy consumption in your home. Usually older windows do not seal when closed allowing air to pass through. Quite often the home has settled and the frames can have gaps allowing air and moisture into the walls. This often breeds mold and mildew in our warm climate here in Florida. That promotes the wood to rot meaning expensive repairs.
Finally, last but not least, is the energy efficiency that new glass offers. It isn’t just plain old, clear glass like past generations installed. Now the glass is treated for three energy efficient measurements.
U-Factor – this is the measure of non-solar heat transfer, meaning your climate controlled air escaping through the frame.
SHGC is the measurement of the amount of radiant heat that transfers through the glass.
R-value is the common measurement of a materials insulating ability.
They are energy efficient, effectively saving you money on energy costs while reducing your carbon footprint. We load the DuraShield window with weather barriers that go far beyond the industry standard. Built-in airlocks, weather stripping, and Low-E glass keep outside air from forcing it way inside your home—particularly during violent storms.
We encourage you to schedule a demo today and see for yourself the quality and construction that goes into our windows.
The most vulnerable part of your window is, of course, the glass. That is why we use double layer protection.
Double Pane – Double pane glass has been around for years providing comfort and energy savings. Our windows are filled with inert Argon gas that is heavier than air and improves the thermal insulation of the window.
Low-E Coating – We all enjoy sunlit rooms but with the light comes ultraviolent rays and radiant heat. UV rays fade and damage floors, furnishings, and drapes. Radiant heat increases thermal energy in your home meaning your AC has to work harder. Three layers of Low-E effectively keeps harmful rays out while keeping cooler air in.
Impact Zones require Storm Shields
If you live in an impact zone (check the map here) you are required to have some form of impact protection on your home if you remodel.
Many of us shelter in place in our homes during storms and hurricanes. Whatever the reasons, keep your family safe in your home with our hurricane shields. They are super easy to install and remove. They also provide you with the ability to still see out of your windows that can provide a great sense of relief. Hearing all the chaos that goes on during storms can be very unsettling. Being able to at least see what has gone on can bring some comfort.
In all storms, even with our best storm protection, you should stay away from windows. Flying debris can come crashing through walls let alone windows. During storms, find a safe place to take cover and wait until winds die down.here
