Be prepared

Hurricane Safe Products
It’s the middle of winter. Do you really need to be thinking about hurricane season now?

Yes! Good hurricane protection doesn’t happen in the few hours just before the storm hits. Winter is a good time to evaluate your home or business for storm protection needs, decide which method best fits your building and budget, investigate the options, and determine whether you can do the work yourself or you should hire a contractor.

Hammering up plywood panels as the wind is already rising and the rain is falling is sure to leave gaps in your protection and damage your building. It won’t be much fun for you either! By reviewing your options now, you can choose methods that will not only protect your property but can also improve its energy efficiency. Clear Tek flat panels and impact windows, for example, both resist flying debris and also seal out heat and noise and make it harder for intruders to break in. Cheap hurricane panels bought and installed at the last minute won’t perform as well.

Don’t wait until hurricane season starts in June to start thinking about protecting your property. Save yourself stress! Call Hurricane Safe Products today and be prepared!

Getting a storm

Hurricane Safe Products
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.
