Hurricane Impact Doors – Your First Line of Defense

“My house isn’t anywhere near the gulf. I’ve never had a problem before.”

This is the seventh straight year you’d be asking for trouble in the face of lengthening odds if you’re not properly protected from hurricane damage.

2022 is expected to be yet another above-average hurricane season. The steps you take now will go a long way in determining if you’re going to have an above-average 2022. Here's what you should consider when choosing hurricane impact doors.

Extra Security For Your Florida Home

Doors are often the forgotten line of defense against hurricane damage. Windows are obviously vulnerable to debris and sustained high winds, so we take steps to protect them with roll-down shutters, accordion shutters, impact windows, hurricane window screens, and clear storm panels. But doors often don’t get such reinforcement as they “seem” solid.

That’s a mistake.

A breached door is literally the entryway to damage to your home during a hurricane. It can even lead to the roof flying off your house. A hurricane impact door is a critical piece of hurricane protection, no matter if you’re on the Gulf or not. In this area, no one is immune to hurricanes. Some are just lucky. But luck eventually runs out.

Benefits of Hurricane Impact Doors

Having professionally installed hurricane impact doors in your home does more than just protect your home from hurricane damage. Unattended homes can be vulnerable to human intrusion. These reinforced entry points also give you peace of mind for home security, particularly when you’re away from home for extended periods of time. You may have installed a Ring doorbell to see what’s happening in front of your door, even remotely. That added layer of technology is designed to give you peace of mind to see who and what could come through that door. A hurricane impact door from Wind Safe Shutters is your first (and best) line of defense.
