Be Ready for Hurricane Season in West Palm Beach

Are you ready for hurricane season? If you’re like many homeowners in West Palm Beach, you’re probably not. Sure, you may some extra bottles of drinking water and a flashlight with fresh batteries. You may even have a generator to maintain electricity. But if your home isn’t structurally prepared for a major storm, you’re risking permanent damage to your most important investment. The professionals at Screen Builders can make sure your home and screen enclosure are properly secured to give you peace of mind through the summer and fall

One of the best ways to protect your home is by adding storm shutters.  Screen Builders can install accordion storm shutters to secure your windows and prevent any debris from the outside or wind to penetrate your house.  Accordion shutters are made from extruded aluminum. These shutters offer several advantages. For example, they can be placed around curved areas and used at any height.  The can also be utilized from inside or outside the house.  Accordion shutters are very affordable and meet the building code standards of Palm Beach County.

But hurricane preparedness doesn’t end with your windows. Screen Builders can also provide added protection for all your screen enclosures. Our professionals can perform a free on-site evaluation of your screen enclosure’s structural integrity.  It’s been nearly 9 years since the last major storm, Hurricane Wilma, affected West Palm Beach. During that time, much of the damage made to screen enclosures was due to inadequate bracing in the roof frame. Debris clogging the screen mesh holes brings excessive strain on the screen cloth.  Our technicians can provide the following:

  • Reinforced window bracing
  • Corrosion-resistant screws
  • Removable panels.

Screen Builders also provides Phifer brand Bettvue Mesh Screen Panels. This new screen mesh provides greater visibility, while adding greater strength and a sturdier barrier in the process.
