Need property protection from hurricanes? Beware of fraudulent screen companies.
In Florida, it is virtually a necessity to build a screen to protect your property from hurricane damage. Unfortunately, a Palm City, Martin County screen company using fraudulent engineering while obtaining a building permit. At least 285 customers have recently been affected.
Michael Sonsini, partner of the company Screen Builders, and past president of the Aluminum Association of Florida advises consumers to beware if they hire an aluminum or screen contractor that does not belong to the AAF.
“Make sure the company that you use is a member of the Aluminum Association of Florida.”
Checking the AAF for a contractor might allow you to choose a reliable company. “Please check first before you hire,” says Sonsini. Screen Builders has been affected themselves by another company calling themselves Florida Screen Builders for fraudulent engineering. Consumers might think this is our business, due to their name similarity, but we are the original Screen Builders and have been in business 29 years and worked on more than 95,050 jobs! So, check the name before you hire,” says Sonsini.
Screen Builders is made up of three original partners, Jim Trimble, Bob Demarco and Michael Sonsini. They are pioneers in the industry, responsible for many design inventions exclusively for their customers. Do you remember the 2004-05 hurricane damages to screen enclosures? There were many failures. Screen Builders pride themselves with designing structures beyond the building code for structural integrity, creating a hurricane defensive design. They offer removable screen panels, releasing the wind pressure against the structure, giving customers control against the storm.
Imagine releasing the removable screen panel locks, removing the screen panel from the wall and storing it in the garage during the storm. After the storm, simply replace the panels and consumers are back in business with normal outdoor living.
