Hurricane season is from June 1- November 30. During a hurricane, winds can enter the home through broken windows and doors. The increased pressure that is caused inside the home by this happening can cause the roof to lift off and push out the structure of the home. Having older doors replaced with doors that are constructed to protect the home against winds, rain and flying debris can help avoid pressure from building inside the home and causing unnecessary damage. Also, having these doors in place will give the families one less thing to worry about when there is an approaching storm.
Impact resistant doors not only protect your home from tropical storms and hurricanes, they also protect the home against intruders, can reduce energy cost and increase the resale value of the home.
If you live in an area that is prone to tropical storms or hurricanes, it is essential to have the doors in your home replaced with impact resistant doors to add protection from damage caused by these storms. The doors are able to withstand the strong winds and flying debris that comes along with tropical storms and hurricanes.
Even if you are not planning on selling your home, the doors will add value to your home should you decide to refinance your home in the future. If you do decide in the future to sell your home, buyers often prefer to purchase a home that already has impact resistant doors installed.
Impact resistant doors can also save you money on your heating and cooling cost. They will keep the heat or air conditioning from escaping your home. This will keep your furnace and air conditioning units from running as often, which will save you money on energy over time.
