Miami Windows Contractor Requirements

Unless you are moderately skilled in construction practices, most property owners require the services of a skilled window installer. To protect your interests, you should always verify a contractor’s license, experience, and insurance. The State of Florida requires contractors to carry both liability and workers compensation insurance to do business in their state. You can verify the status of their license by visiting MyFlorida.com.

Miami Window Installation Permits

The City of Miami requires permits before beginning a window installation project. You can file for a building permit by visiting Miami-Dade County’s Permitting and Inspection Center located at 11805 SW 26 Street (Coral Way) Miami, Florida between 7:30 A.M. and 4 P.M.

Where to Buy Windows in Miami, Florida

There are many places you can purchase new windows in Miami, Florida. Single window applications might serve you best by buying from one of the big box stores that stock popular styles and sizes. If you were considering replacing all of your existing windows or purchasing windows for a newly constructed home, you would be better off utilizing the services or a window supplier and installation company. The big box stores can also handle whole house installations and sometimes offer rebates and incentives that might be attractive to you. Another advantage to using one of the big home improvement retailers is that they are known for standing behind their product and services, which offers a peace of mind if problems arise.

Windows Rebates and Incentive in Miami

Aside from the occasional manufacturer rebate, single pane, low-efficiency windows are left out in the cold when it comes to rebate and incentive programs. Property owners considering energy efficient windows and hurricane rated windows may have programs in place that help absorb the initial costs of installation. Since most hurricane rated and impact resistant windows are considered high-performance and energy efficient, you may qualify for rebates and government incentive programs designed to promote energy efficiency in residential homes. According to the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency, there are many rebate and incentive programs in the State of Florida. It is to your benefit to check the site before purchasing new windows in Miami.

Which Window Types are Best for Dallas Climate?

Miami residents experience a hot, humid, and tropical climate during the summer months and an average of 68.2 F during the month of January. Miami has also endured plenty of hurricane activity over the years as the coastal city lies on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The climate is an important factor you should take into consideration, as it will affect the performance and expected lifespan of your new windows. With that being said, it goes without saying that due to the tropical conditions and high humidity levels, wood framed windows are probably not your best choice for the region. Aluminum home windows and vinyl framed windows are better suited for Dallas climate as they offer more durability and require significantly less maintenance versus wood framed windows.

Vinyl vs. Fiberglass Home Window Installation

Vinyl windows consist of the material called PVC or polyvinyl chloride. For additional support, a metal may be added to make the frames sturdier. It is a popular choice if the homeowner prioritizes affordability but does not want to compromise efficiency. The fabrication of vinyl windows utilizes a honeycomb base, which can be resized to fit various window opening spaces.

On the other hand, fiberglass windows have activated polyester resins that are placed under stresses using a heated die. Various manufacturers use fiberglass to make heavy-duty yet lightweight products, like surfboards.

It was in 2000 that the construction industry adopted the use of fiberglass as a building material, including those for new construction windows and windows replacement. 

Which Window Frame Type is Best? 

A fiberglass window and a vinyl window has its sets of strengths and weaknesses. Here is a collection of different questions to help you see the comparison of each. These questions may help you decide which is best for your Miami home.

 

Which window type is tougher and more long-lasting?

 

Both vinyl and fiberglass replacement types have specific base chemicals that are resistant to pests, including termites and ants. They are also waterproof and moisture-resistant, which makes it not decay even after several decades. When it comes to durability, vinyl and fiberglass are quite equal.

 

But, if we are talking about which type has a more robust frame, the crown goes to the fiberglass. Fiberglass windows are nine times more rigid than vinyl. Because of this characteristic, they require minimal maintenance. However, it is still essential to note that the windows by itself do not have structural support. Therefore, there should always be an additional support to keep the fiberglass in place. Nevertheless, if your vinyl windows have proper framing, it can still serve you well in many years to come.

 

Which Replacement Window is Cheaper?

 

Fiberglass and vinyl window types relatively cost less than a wood window. But if to compare between the two, a vinyl window is more affordable than the other. A single vinyl installation costs around $450, while fiberglass fares about $600. 

Vinyl and fiberglass are sturdy and heavy-duty materials, which is why both offer great benefits when used as window replacement items. If you want an attractive, more durable, and energy-efficient option, go for a fiberglass window. But, for a more affordable alternative that can also last for years, a vinyl window is an excellent choice.
