The 2015 hurricane season has officially started, but many homeowners are underprepared. This year’s season has been predicted as a light season, but that doesn’t mean there are no threats of storms on the horizon. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts that there will be 11 named storms this year, with up to 6 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes in the cards. It only takes one major storm to create catastrophic damage, and even minor tropical storms can cause widespread property damage. Even worse, the National Hurricane Center fears that the lighter predictions will leave many homeowners unprepared when a hurricane is on its way. If you’re not prepared for hurricane season, our preparedness team at Screen Builders can help!
Hurricanes and tropical storms alike can cause widespread damage. These storms bring high winds, constant rain, inland flooding and coastal storm surge. Staying protected in the circumstances these storms create requires prior planning. The time to prepare for a hurricane is now, before there’s a storm setting its sights for South Florida. During a storm, your home’s most vulnerable points are its windows, which can easily shatter from the flying debris created by all storms. Once a window is broken, the entire structural integrity of your home can be at risk, with pressure changes in the building causing even bigger dangers. Wind can find its way in through a broken window, bringing rain and more debris along with it. It can even compromise your roof’s integrity, causing catastrophic damage.
The best way to prevent these dangers from even becoming a true concern is with the protection provided by our storm shutters in West Palm Beach, FL.
