We hope you are you family are staying safe and well with this eventful year, and since now we are entering the hurricane season.
We are starting to prepare and encourage our customers overview and check your home’s screen enclosures for possible screen panels repairs, tension cables adjustments, screen door kit and locks.
The purpose for this is to make sure your screen enclosure is stable and secured to handle tropical storms and strong winds.
Did you know? the screen material is made out of fiber plastic composite that can resist strong winds “within a moderate consideration” like up to Category 3 wind surge. Now, if the screen is old and it has holes due to time, then it is not sturdy enough to support even a tropical storm.
Therefore, we recommend screen panel replacements to endure the enclosure.
Things you can check or look for to asses your screen enclosure:
– Screen panels conditions
– Aluminum frame stability (ie: bottom, joints, etc.)
– Door kit(s) functionality
– Tension cables strength
– Any other visible aspect to consider
There are factors to consider such as tree(s) and other objects that can potentially obstruct the screen enclosure and damage it, but the main thing is to focus in what we can control and take preventive action.
Best Screen Enclosures is here to help you with any service you need regarding your home’s screen enclosure before and after any event.
Keep us in mind for any screen repair job, as we strive to provide with the best possible pricing options, screen enclosure materials, professionalism and timely manner to get the job done.
In addition we updated this Hurricane Season Preparedness‘ post to expand crucial and valuable information we consider it should be vital to include.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced an above-average 2020’s season (approximately above 60%) of activities and weather events from July 1st through November 30th.
Prepping for more than just your surroundings?
In the event of a natural disaster like a hurricane, FEMA may provide disaster grants that needn’t be repaid, the amount you get is usually much lower than you need — in the tens of thousands, for losses that could easily run to the hundreds of thousands.
Your regular home insurance should protect you from one of the biggest risks, wind damage.
Water should be covered too unless the insurance company decides the damage is covered by flooding, which requires a separate policy.
However, Insurers typically issue moratoriums on even making changes to existing policies once a hurricane warning (or even a hurricane watch) has been issued for an area.
Now with many hurricanes sure to come in 2020, take the time to evaluate your coverage before its too late.
