Should You Install Impact Windows Before You Move House?

When moving house in a hurricane zone, it is always important to make sure that the home you are moving into has hurricane protection such as hurricane shutters or impact windows. But what about the home you are leaving behind? Should you install impact windows for the next homeowner or leave it as a project for them to deal with when they move in?

Value Vs Cost

What you are weighing here is really the cost of installing the windows vs how much you will make on the house. 

Before you make this decision, look at the other houses for sale in your area. Consider the cost of a house with impact windows vs the cost of a home of similar size without impact windows. Then get a quote on how much it will cost for you to install impact windows in your property. 

Nine times out of ten you will be set to make a profit. 

However, before installing these impact windows you will also want to consider:

  • The time available to you before you move.
  • How soon before hurricane season, and will you have the time to organize the windows before it is upon you? 
  • Whether you will need to pay out for impact windows in the property you move into (and if you can afford to do both).
