The Benefits of Hurricane Impact Patio Doors
It’s hurricane season again. As we write this blog post, Hurricane Idalia is angrily pounding away at the Gulf Coast and our neighbors in Georgia. Analysts expect the damage from Idalia to cost $9.36 billion in insurance claims. However, the hurricane losses are more than just a number – they represent lives that have been upended by the damage from the storm. While we can’t prevent hurricanes, we can help minimize their damage by installing hurricane impact windows and doors.
Most homeowners know that hurricane impact windows are an option to protect their home during a hurricane, however, many don’t realize that the same high level of protection is available for their patio doors as well. Traditional patio doors require hurricane shutters to protect your home during a storm. The shutters can be a hassle to use during your hurricane preparation. There’s always the nagging fear in the back of your mind – “what if the shutter malfunctions and doesn’t work?” During the hurricane itself, living in a completely dark, shuttered up home with no power can be frightening, especially for children. Additionally, when the shutters are not being used, the storage box on top of the door can look bulky and may not fit with the overall aesthetic of your home.
To avoid these situations, upgrade your standard patio doors to hurricane impact doors. CitiQuiet Windows and Doors, one of South Florida’s leading hurricane impact window and door retailers, offers a wide variety of beautiful hurricane impact patio doors to match your design preferences. Our styles include:
- Traditional sliding glass doors that offer a picturesque view of your pool or patio area. Great for large or small spaces.
- Bi-fold doors – a system of oversized folding glass doors that open by stacking up against a wall. When open, these modern-style doors provide unobstructed access between the inside and outside and are perfect for homeowners who frequently entertain. When closed, they create a wall of windows. These types of doors are best suited for larger spaces since they need extra room when they are stacked open.
- Pivot doors – a luxurious, modern-style door. These doors tend to be larger and are made of glass, offering a picture-perfect view of the outside. Unlike a traditional door which swings open on hinges, this door pivots open and creates an architecturally interesting look unique from a typical swinging door.
- French doors – two glass paneled doors hung within one frame creating a classic look of elegance and refinement.
Our doors meet Miami-Dade hurricane standards and are available with wood, aluminum or vinyl frames in a variety of colors to match your home’s decor.
