• About ALV Storm and Impact Windows

    A window’s function is not simply to allow light and air into the home, but a window in a Hillsborough County, Florida home has a rather complicated job: it must allow the sun’s light to pass through, but not the heat and humidity. As a result of Hurricane Andrew, we now know that windows are also a key point of entry for wind, rain, and debris.
    Impact-rated glass not only protects your home and office from hurricane damage but also helps prevent the entry of burglars and many times results in savings on the costs of your home insurance.


    Riverview, Florida is well known for its many opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. Not only is it a short drive away from the beautiful beaches of Tampa, but is the home to several nature preserves. From bird watching and hiking to fishing and pick-nicking you have plenty to choose from at different nature preserves such as Rhodine Scrub Preserve and Nature Trails, Bell Creek Nature Preserve, or the Alafia Scrub Nature Preserve.
    For those who are less of the outdoorsy type Riverview also has some great options in town such as Keke’s Breakfast Café, JF Kicks, Taqueria Don Julio, and the town's first brewery Leaven Brewing.

    Riverview is a great place to live if you are looking for a place to move to in the Tampa Bay area. The housing expenses are 8% lower than the national average and the utility prices are 2% lower than the national average. Transportation expenses like taking the bus and gas prices are 2% lower than the national average. With so many great things who wouldn't want to live here?


    The Florida Building Code has very specific requirements when it comes to replacing or installing new windows and doors. According to FBC 2017, the version currently being enforced in our state, all window or glass openings within a structure need to be impact-resistant or use impact coverings, such as storm shutters or hurricane panels.

    All replacement and new construction of door and window projects, need to be permitted by the local municipality.
