According to My Safe Florida Home, impact-resistant windows and doors may save up to 35 percent on your homeowners insurance policy and “qualified homeowners may recoup up to $5,000 of the cost of making specific upgrades to their home.” Impact-resistant windows and doors are an eligible upgrade under the matching grant program.
Although impact windows and doors are highly resistant to projectiles, they are not indestructible. However, impact windows and doors serve as a deterrent when thieves scout their next break in.
