It’s the beginning of April, and while the Atlantic hurricane season doesn’t start for a couple more months, now is the time to prepare yourself—if not with water and canned food just yet, then at least with some long-term protection for your home.
Every Floridian and Southeasterner should know something about getting ready for hurricane season: it doesn’t have to be a chore! Nor do you have to board up your beautiful home on summer vacation or in the event of an impending storm. The storm protection industry has evolved over the years, from the use of plywood to board up windows to today, the more popular (and more secure) process of boarding up with sturdy, reinforced shutters… and sometimes, to no “boarding up” at all! What’s that all about?
You can protect your home against hurricanes or strong summer storms without changing the aesthetic of your property or putting in lots of work whenever a storm comes near… you just need some high-impact windows to do the trick. These windows, which we can install for you, offer a more permanent, effortless solution to protecting your home from storm debris and high winds.
But whether you choose high-impact windows or shutters to protect your home this spring and summer, remember that preparedness is all about acting ahead of time. Waiting until the last minute before a storm can be stressful and takes time away from other tasks, like stocking up on gas, water or food.
