Are your windows and doors prepared for hurricane season?
Is your home prepared for hurricane season? Peak hurricane season is from late August to late November. Currently, the National Hurricane Center is projecting Matthew, the first Category 5 Atlantic hurricane since 2007, could take a path toward the Delmarva Peninsula. These storms are unpredictable and residents of Sussex County, especially coastal residents, should be on heightened awareness.
Big Storms = Big Damage
In 2016 (as of July), there were eight weather and climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion each across the United States. These events included two flooding events and six severe storm events. Overall, these events resulted in the deaths of 30 people and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted.
When your next design, construction, or renovation project is located in a coastal area, you know the conditions your buildings are up against. You don’t have to look too far back in recent memory to recall the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, Sandy’s path of destruction missed the Delmarva Peninsula. Don’t be caught off guard by the unpredictability of hurricanes.
The windows and doors you choose are critical. You need products specifically designed to stand up to wind, rain, moisture, salt, and sun. When it comes to the harshest coastal conditions like hurricane force winds, driving rain, humidity, flying debris, endless sun and more, Marvin Coastal Complete can take it!
StormPlus windows and doors by Marvin may feature graceful craftsmanship – and even sweeping expanses of glass – but they also help preserve your home’s structural seal. They’re certified for energy efficiency and rigorously tested by third-party agencies to meet or exceed the most stringent coastal codes. They’re designed to protect against flying debris, driving rain, cyclic pressure, temperature extremes and more. They can even provide enhanced security against break-ins, as well as insulation against outdoor noise.
If you are looking for new home windows or home window replacement before the next storm, you need to consult with a professional.
