Do You Really Need Hurricane Protection?
Hurricane panels, shutters or impact resistant windows are installed to protect the building structure. The main cause of hurricane damage behind storm surge is the penetration of the windows and doors from flying debris. Wind alone can cause damage, but it’s mainly caused by the debris breaking windows and doors that allow the wind to enter the home causing lift on the roof and outward pressure on the walls.
