Impact doors are heavy-duty solid structures that are inserted into your door frame but come with a thicker and wider door frame themselves. They're designed to protect the entranceways of the home and block off the threat of any heavy winds, flooding, and other structural damage that can typically occur as a result of a hurricane. Our impact doors have provided enhanced protection and security to our clients who want to remain safe during any severe storm or hurricane.
What are Impact Doors?
Impact doors are storm-resistant doors that are specially-built with the intention to further protect your home from potential storm damage or hurricane damage. Since hurricanes and tropical storms can often bring strong winds and rain, your standard doors are often vulnerable to damage since they aren't built with the same stamina and strength as impact doors. Impact doors are constructed with heavier and thicker frames that hold them in place and prevent the heavy winds from tearing them down.
Benefits of Impact Doors
The main benefit of impact doors is to further protect your home from tropical storms and potential hurricanes. Not only can impact doors keep you and your loved ones safe, but they can also protect your home long-term from any recurring hurricanes that could hit your home or the coast of Fort Lauderdale. Even if the hurricane does not directly hit your home, the aftermath storms can still negatively impact the area and cause ongoing rains for days. For this reason, you'll want to keep your home protected from water damages, flooding, and any other heavy force that could penetrate through your home. Impact doors can help reduce these potential threats to your home's safety and security.
Installing impact doors is a great way to complete a protection and storm security package for your home. Along with your impact windows, impact doors can help protect your home even further because of their strength and durability to combat the heavy winds and excessive rains that are often the result of ongoing tropical storms and hurricanes. These elements can be detrimental to a standard home that has not been prepared, but with the right features and care, your home can be prepared for any potential storm it comes across. Furthermore, investing in impact doors can ensure that you aren't stuck with insurance claims and expensive repairs in the future if a storm damages your standard windows and doors.
When it comes to maintaining your impact doors, there's very little that you need to do in order to ensure that they're up and running accordingly and to the best of their ability. The only maintenance that we recommend is that you keep them clean from time to time, which you can do by simply wiping them down with a warm cloth to remove any dirt buildup or debris. If there are scratches on your impact door, we can assist in repairing and removing those imperfections.
