Are Impact Doors Worth The Costs?
Impact doors are a great addition to any home in Florida. Not only do they add value and curb appeal to your home, but they also offer protection for you and your family. An impact door comes in various styles, colors, and designs and are highly customizable to fit any taste. Many people often wonder if impact doors are worth the cost. In short, yes, they are absolutely worth the cost. ASP Windows and Doors explains why in today’s blog.
Why Impact Windows and Doors?
Homes in Florida can benefit in more ways than one if they have impact windows and doors installed by the trusted team from ASP Windows and Doors. Some of the benefits of impact doors include the following:
- Protection against break-ins
- Protection from high winds and flying debris (think of hurricane season)
- An investment in your home
- Added curb appeal
The Upfront Cost
It is difficult to provide a definite cost for impact windows and doors without first knowing your style, preference and size needed. You might only want a new entry door or you might want all of the doors replaced in your Florida home. Either way, the upfront cost of having impact windows and doors installed might surprise you, but will be worth it in the long run. You will be saving money over time through lower energy costs and possibly preventing damage from hurricanes or other extreme weather. You are also getting tremendous value in being able to design your doors to fit your personal style and stand out from the other homes in your neighborhood.
What Goes Into the Cost of Impact Windows and Doors?
After you decide that your home should have impact windows and doors installed by ASP Windows and Doors, it’s time to review exactly what it is you want. The cost of the project will be determined by the following:
Each of these categories will have a different cost based on what you need or desire for your home. For example, if you choose a fiberglass door that incorporates the look of a classic hardwood construction, you will have one of the strongest and most aesthetically pleasing impact doors installed in your home. However, it will cost more than a sleek and modern steel door. No matter which material or style you choose, you will still be getting the protection an impact door has to offer.
Despite the added cost, knowing that your doors will be stronger and more likely to withstand the winds of a hurricane can provide you with peace of mind. Aside from protecting your family from intruders and high winds (they are approved for use in high-velocity hurricane zones), your utility bills will also decrease. Since these doors and windows are solid, you won’t have to worry about a draft in any of the rooms in your home where they are installed.
An In-Home Evaluation is Your Next Step
Because the cost of impact windows and doors varies greatly based on your needs and choices, the next step is to schedule an in-home evaluation. Any company that tries to provide you with a quote over the phone is not doing you justice. A rep from ASP Windows and Doors will come to your home, listen to your ideas, take measurements, and create a detailed estimate for you to review.
