Tips for Protecting Your Home During a Hurricane

Even if you have homeowners insurance, you probably don’t want your home to go into battle against a hurricane without a full suit of armor. Whether you plan to evacuate or stand your ground when the next hurricane comes calling, you’ll want to make sure your castle is well fortified to meet this perennial foe.

ArmorGuard Exteriors is a locally owned home improvement company that’s been helping residents of the Jacksonville, Florida, area safeguard their homes for more than 30 years. We’re pleased to draw on our extensive experience to offer these tips for protecting your home during a hurricane:

Shield Your Windows & Glass Doors

If you’re living in a hurricane-prone area, your home faces the potential for significant damage from the sustained high-speed winds and powerful wind gusts that accompany hurricanes and tropical storms. The pressure from these winds is often strong enough to break an ordinary window. But even worse, your windows and glass doors will be vulnerable to missile strikes from tree branches, patio furniture, garden statuary, and other debris the wind picks up and hurls at your home. Fortunately, there are lots of options for hurricane window protection, including:

  • Impact-resistant replacement windows that are designed to stay intact in the face of threats from high-speed winds
  • Motorized retractable hurricane screens that can be lowered at the touch of a button to protect your patio or porch
  • Removable hurricane panels that can be easily mounted when a storm approaches, then taken down and tucked away whenever the threat has passed

Shore Up Your Gutter System With Gutter Guards

The primary purpose of gutter guards, of course, is to keep debris out of your gutter system so rainwater will flow as intended, unimpeded by clogs. If a hurricane is on its way, you don’t want your home to brave it with clogged gutters, and reliable gutter covers can help your gutters be prepared for a heavy downpour at any time. Beyond that, though, an ultra-sturdy gutter guard can serve as a shield, protecting your gutters and your roof’s edge from impact damage related to airborne debris.

If you’re exploring hurricane protection options for your home in Jacksonville or any of the surrounding communities, the experts at ArmorGuard Exteriors will be delighted to assist you. Contact us today for more information.

Just had Armor Guard Hurricane Shutters installed on my home. Robert, the installer, was professional and did a wonderful job. Easy and quick to install and remove.

We hired Gutter Helmet to install hurricane fabric at our home. When calling to schedule our initial consultation the lady on the phone was very pleasant and friendly. Our sales rep, Michael Scantling, showed up on time and was very informative. The install crew was very efficient, professional and kept the job site clean. This is one purchase I’m glad we made but hopefully we will never have to use, Nice to have their extra protection should a storm ever come our way. Highly recommend Gutter Helmet!!

The sales rep was very professional for our Hurricane Screens. The crew worked very hard and addressed several challenges in the installation process. We were very pleased. We have left the screens up as we are in the heart of hurricane season. The screens allow a lot of light in making this all possible.
