Looking for a renovation project that really packs a punch? Rod McDee and the Rod Squad* have just the thing: impact windows and doors from CGI®. Updating to impact products can help strengthen and transform your home, providing a range of benefits.
Homes with impact windows are:
- Saving homeowners money
- Providing energy efficiency
A strong return on investment
Along with overall home performance improvements, impact products can also potentially boost your home value. According to recent estimates, the return on investment (ROI) for replacement windows can be up to 68%**. In hurricane-prone places like Florida, impact windows are a popular feature that add the stylish curb appeal and an extra layer of protection that many homebuyers desire.
But increasing resale is just one of the ways impact windows and doors from CGI® bolster the value to your home. Together with increased everyday protection from storms, noise, and would-be intruders, they may also lower energy and home insurance costs.
“Builders and homeowners rely on CGI® products because they’re built to last and deliver so many totally awesome benefits,” says Rod McDee.
Higher energy efficiency, lower energy bills
Windows are responsible for up to 30% of home heating and cooling loss***. Replacing old and poorly sealed windows and doors can make a big difference in everyday comfort by stabilizing indoor temperatures, especially during the hottest months of the year.
CGI® impact windows and doors give you additional ways to take energy efficiency to the next level with high-performance options like double weatherstripping, spacers, and air fills, as well as tints and low-E glass.
These smart add-on features can spur long-term savings while also making your home a better place to be.
Tax breaks lower insurance premiums
A recent tax holiday initiative from the state of Florida offers yet another incentive to homeowners who choose impact windows and doors: instant savings (can you hear the Rod Squad cheering?). From July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2024, residents who purchase impact windows and doors pay zero sales tax in the state.
Many CGI® customers have received reductions in their home insurance premiums, as well, due to the increased protection that impact windows and doors provide. Rate discounts can differ based on your policy and the company you are working with — your insurance agent can help you take advantage of such discounts.
