How Impact Windows and Doors Can Increase Your Home’s Value
One of the best things you can do to increase your home’s value is by investing in impact windows and doors. Not only that, but impact windows and doors can also make your home a quieter and more efficient place to live.
Impact windows are a great way to get more natural light into your home without having to sacrifice safety or security. Natural light makes your home look better, and more inviting. The problem is that with natural light comes larger windows, and with larger widows comes both higher energy costs and a greater security risk. Impact windows are the solution. They offer all of the natural light without any of the sacrifices.
Impact windows can keep your home insulated and cool over the summer as well as safe and secure during hurricanes. You no longer need to waste your money on air conditioning or waste your time with putting up pesky shutters.
Reducing Energy Costs
Your average home loses around 30% of its heating and cooling energy via “air leaks” around windows. A study done recently by Energy Star revealed that by switching from single-pane windows to impact windows, you could save up to $465 a year. Usually, a good rule of thumb is to replace your old single-pane windows after about ten years. If, however, you install impact windows they can potentially last much longer.
In an ideal world, the only noises floating through your windows would be the sounds of children laughing and the birds singing. Yet, unfortunately, it’s not a perfect world. And what you usually end up hearing are your children yelling and your neighbor’s weed-whacker. That’s where impact windows come in. They can do a whole lot to reduce noise and preserve some peace and quiet in your home.
Impact doors provide the protection your family needs from both crime and mother nature. But, as residents of South Florida know, mother nature is by far the more likely of the two culprits. With impact doors, preparing for hurricanes is a cinch. You don’t have to do anything, just close them! They are also a great investment for your home, whether or planning on staying there for a while or thinking about selling, impact windows can dramatically increase your home’s value. We at ASP Windows And Doors specialize in installing a number of different impact-door brands including (but not limited to):
- SIW (Security Impact Window)

Reduce Storage Needs And Aesthetics
Impact doors can make it so that you no longer need to store plywood and 2x4s to board up for hurricanes. They also look and feel great. There are all kinds of varieties of impact doors ranging from full-on wood to sliding glass and everything in between.
