Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 through November 30, even though hurricanes can develop outside those dates. Due to being a coastal city Delray Beach has been in direct or near direct hits from hurricanes in 1999, 2004, and 2005. Delray Beach hasn’t received a direct hit from a hurricane since 2005, when Hurricane Wilma, a category 3 with winds that exceeded 100 miles per hour, tore it’s way up the South Florida coast. As each year’s Atlantic hurricane season continues to be more and more active, let Storm Ready help you prepare to weather the storm and whatever it throws at your home by purchasing and installing hurricane shutters with us.
Many homes throughout Delray Beach are already prepared for hurricane force winds with Accordion shutters installed over windows and doors. These shutters are a popular choice for homeowners because of their quick and simple deployment that can often be done by one person. Many homes with a second story will also use accordion shutters to cover the upper level windows. For a more secure and streamlined line of defense against the strong winds that accompany hurricanes, Roll-up storm shutters can be installed on your Delray Beach home or business. This style of storm shutter is permanently mounted over the top of windows and doors, and is deployed automatically, or manually by hand crank, to roll down over the full length of the window or door. Homeowners who have roll-up storm shutters also enjoy added energy efficiency, as these shutters can be set to deploy during the most intense sun of the day, blocking out the heat and keeping the interior of the home cool. Bahama shutters are becoming increasingly popular around South Florida, thanks to their stylish look and added bonus of aiding in energy efficiency within the home. Bahama shutters are available in a variety of colors and remain affixed to your home year-round. Storm panels are the most budget-friendly option for storm shutters while still offering homeowners with the added level of protection they require during a major hurricane. Each panel is made from steel, aluminum, or Lexan, and must be hung over windows or doors before the storm arrives, then removed and stored away until their next use. Storm fabric is the solution for homeowners with screened in pool enclosures and patios. This UV resistant screening is designed to be removed quickly so that as hurricane force winds approach, they can safely pass through the area. Once the winds have subsided, the screens can easily be reattached to allow for bug and critter-free outdoor living.
