Start by assessing your windows’ current status. Check seals and weatherstripping to make sure they are functioning and without damage and replace or repair as necessary. Confirm if your window units have impact-resistant glass. If you currently have Andersen® windows, you can identify your glass by visiting our help center.
If your windows need replacing, check local codes to identify if you are required to have coastal-rated windows in your home and contact a local dealer to get a quote. If you are not required by code to have impact-resistant glass but window performance is still a worry given your proximity to severe weather, consider upgrading to impact-resistant glass.
