Make Your Home Hurricane-Resistant

We’re in the clear… at least for the next six months. Now that hurricane season is over and the winter holidays have passed, it’s time to plan for any renovations or projects that can improve your home’s ability to withstand a hurricane for next season. Following are three of our top tips for making your home more hurricane-resistant for next year’s season:

Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors

Installing hurricane impact windows and doors can make your home safer and more comfortable during a storm. These windows and doors are manufactured to withstand hurricane force winds and debris. Even if a large tree branch comes crashing into your window during a category 5 storm, these windows will not shatter. This protects the structural integrity of your home as well as protects against water and wind damage that could occur if a window were to shatter during a storm. In addition to this gold standard of protection, during the hurricane, you can see outside and have natural light enter your home since you no longer need hurricane shutters.


As roofs age, they weaken; shingles become damaged, tiles crack and flashing comes loose. Over time, this can cause water to seep into your home and cause water damage. During a hurricane, though, the damage can happen immediately. The high winds can tear a hole through a weakened roof, allowing rain and debris to pour in. Not only will this cause major water damage to your home and belongings, but it also can compromise the structural integrity of your home. To minimize the risk of this occurring, contact a roofing professional before hurricane season begins to inspect your roof and complete any necessary repairs.


Your gutters need to be in tiptop shape to safely channel water away from your home in a hurricane. Like roofs, gutters can deteriorate over time. They can become loose, nails can come out, they can sag, rust, or develop gaps. Work with a gutter professional to inspect and repair your gutters before hurricane season starts. Additionally, clean out any debris in your gutters that could cause them to clog or back up. Finally, check to make sure that when water exits your gutters, that it is deposited far enough away from the house that it doesn’t back up into the home. You may also need a gardener to regrade the land adjacent to your home if the land grades toward your home instead of away from it.
