Condominium - Impact and Energy Efficient Windows and Doors Minimize

High Rise CondosCondominiums
The impact window and sliding glass door needs of each condominium complex are varied and unique.  In addition to the requirements of your Condo HOA (Home Owners Association) or your Property Management Company, replacement windows and sliding glass doors for Condominiums throughout Florida must meet certain wind, impact and legal requirements as set forth specifically for condominiums by the state and local county ordinance.  

Not all Condominiums (condos) are created equal:
Low rise condos (4 stories or less) may be able to use vinyl replacement windows in most locations supplying both energy efficiency and the security of an impact window.  However, once your condo goes above 4 stories, the requirements change drastically limiting your choice to aluminum windows and aluminum sliding glass doors.  The height, location of the condominium, wind speeds and design pressures will determine how strong the aluminum windows and sliding glass doors will actually need to be.  Not all aluminum windows and aluminum sliding glass doors are built the same and not all impact glass has the same rating.  Knowing which aluminum frame goes with which impact glass is a matter of safety.  No one wants to lean on an aluminum frame window at 16 stories thinking it is safe when it is not.

Just because an impact window meets Wind Speed ratings does NOT mean it meets Design Pressure ratings.  While this is true for all windows, it is a major factor in determining the correct impact windows for a condominium complex.  Design Pressure is based on a combination of seven (7) factors; wind-speed, building location, both the height and width of the building as well as the terrain of the property.  When all that is calculated, what floor and unit the window opening is located within the condominium complex (Corner Window or Inner Window), becomes the final determination on which aluminum frame and impact glass type needs to be installed. 

Condominium installation Experience that matters:
Florida Lifetime Impact Window and Door has vast experience with the installation of all types of windows (including casement, single hung, double hung and picture windows) and door installations (including sliding glass, French and solid core entry doors) for both high-rise and low-rise condominiums.  Their service and installation area stretches from Orlando, west to Tampa and as far South as Naples. 

Florida Lifetime Impact Windows and Doors only uses Factory Trained and Certified Installers for all of their window, door, garage door, roofing and siding projects.  They NEVER use subcontractors as they refuse to leave their reputation in the hands of anyone who doesn't treat it like gold as they believe there is way too much at stake for that.  In fact, every energy consultant, sales person and installer is an employee of Florida Lifetime Impact Window and Door.  Selling windows and sliding glass doors for condominiums is one thing...  Knowing and understanding the demands, design pressures, special regional and county zone requirements for the various condominiums heights and for each installation is another.  These are some of the things that separates Florida Lifetime Impact Window and Door condo experience from other companies.  Using top of the line impact window and sliding glass door products is another.
