Residents of Broward, Dade and Palm Beach Counties are Racing Out for Impact Doors

With hurricane season rapidly approaching, home owners and businesses in the  Tri-County area are clamoring to install impact doors and windows.

This year, more than ever before, residents of South Florida realize the need for impact doors and windows. Why? With no land-falling hurricanes, Florida had been on a direct hit hurricane-free winning streak for 11 years, but in 2017 that streak came to an end. A Category-4 Hurricane named Irma made landfall before finally weakening into a tropical storm some sixteen days later.

On August 30, the NHC issued Hurricane watches and warnings for the state of Florida. Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for 51 counties, including Fort Lauderdale and the entireentire Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County areas.

After Hurricane Irma Hermine raged across Florida, insured losses to property reached $80 million. Impact doors and windows helped to reduce damage in the homes and businesses of those who were wise enough to prepare for the possibility of major impact.

There is no better investment in a home or business, than  impact doors, frames and windows.  American Door, Co is here to help protect you and your family from personal injury and property damage.

Fort Lauderdale, and surrounding City’s, are listed as being in the High Velocity Hurricane Zone, making impact doors and windows from American Door, Co. a necessity.

Why are Hurricane winds so damaging?  The force is not steady. They are pounding winds that are capable of shredding vulnerable sections of homes and businesses apart. Imagine the effects of violent wind pressure on your exterior door by thinking about a door laid flat with the perimeter mounted to cinder blocks. Then drop 700 pounds of pressure time-and-time again more than an hour. Would you feel safe if the door wasn’t impact resistant?

Last year NOAA (noted above) was right on the money; having predicted a "near-normal" season with 10 to 16 named storms, four to eight hurricanes, including one to four major hurricanes in 2016. Which means residents and business owners in the Fort Lauderdale area of Broward County should heed their warning for an “above-normal” hurricane season and install impact doors from American Door, Co.
