How Much Do Hurricane Windows Cost?

Consumers and homeowners can expect hurricane windows cost to range from $1000 to $2500 fully installed. These window units are not cheap, they require testing and certification, use special glass technology, employ high quality extrusions, hardware and parts that must be able to stand up to storms and, well, hurricanes. For more pricing estimates, check out our impact windows cost calculator page.

Consumers will pay for this durability and craftsmanship, however check out our best value windows to see where you can find quality impact windows at a price that won't break the bank.

Budget Hurricane Windows Cost

Entry level hurricane options are often not technically impact windows at all. In order to get the label, manufacturers must subject the unit to significant testing and certification that is then built into the cost. Unlike most window categories, homeowners can go with our "budget recommendations" and still get a good quality product. In order for us to recommend the series below, they need an upgrade on the glass package and perhaps a sill reinforement in order to get them into "impact status."

Average Hurricane Windows Cost

Mid range hurricane series should be certified as an impact window. In order to get the label, the unit must have a design pressure rating of 45 or higher. A 45 DP rated window with good quality installation should be durable enough to stand up to some pretty significant storms.

Some of the features that come with a hurricane window include a beefed up frame with good corner welds, high end double pane glass (there are a number of different systems that manufacturers use for hurricane or impact glass), multichambered and foam filled extrusions and perhaps an aluminum sill reinforcement.
