Every few years, Sarasota County gets affected by hurricane weather. We have all seen on the news images of boarded-up businesses getting hammered by gale-force winds and water. Having hurricane protection allows us business owners to avoid high costs to repair interior and exterior building damage and the stress that comes along with the cost. Storm protection products like accordian shutters and impact windows can help to keep glass intact and potential looters out of your storefront inventory. While these products are not as cheap as plywood, they tend to be more durable and can save you from additional losses of other windows, doors, or even your roof due to the build-up of air pressure inside a building with one compromised window or door.
Having hurricane-mitigation improvements (like hurricane panels) protecting can save business owners on the cost to insure their businesses. Owning a business in an area that is vulnerable to direct or indirect impact of hurricanes means having to take these extra precautionary steps to ensure the safety of your business during inclement weather conditions. In Florida, when there is a hurricane, we know to hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
