Hurricanes aren’t known as one of the most destructive natural disasters for no reason. We’re all familiar with the damage they cause, and injuries they lead to, but let’s take a closer look at just how hurricanes are impacting our homes and structures here in Florida.
Water and Wind
Water damage is one of the most prominent results and the most feared results of a hurricane. It permeates every aspect of your home from the structure, to the books on your shelves, and it’s pretty difficult to avoid. Along with the water damage, comes the wind damage. The wind
During a hurricane, the minimum speed of the wind is 74 miles per hour. And all of that wind is throwing debris around like a game of hot potato. This can lead to loosened, damaged, or missing roof tiles, which can also lead to further water damage because all of that mixture now has easier access to the inside of your home.
Wind and debris cause further damage when they come in contact with your windows. Shattered windows are all too common in the middle of a hurricane, but luckily there’s a solution. Install hurricane shutters on the exterior of your home to help protect the glass in the event of high winds or contact with debris.
