Creating A Great Construction Environment

About a year ago, I realized that there were a few things that I needed to do around the house to make my place feel more like a home. For starters, I knew that I needed to replace the carpet, since it was damaged from years of use. Unfortunately, I knew that I didn't have the skills to take care of things on my own, so I turned to a team of professional contractors. They were incredible to work with, and even taught me how to create a great construction environment for my team. After the project was done, I knew that I wanted to make a blog about creating a positive construction environment.

4 Tips To Prepare Your Home For New Hurricane Screens That Keep You Safe During The Storm

Construction & Contractors Blog

Hurricane screens are an investment that keeps your home safer during storms. These are special fabrics that are installed on the outside of windows and doors to protect your home and can later be removed after the storm passes. Before you can have hurricane screens installed on your home, you are going to want to prepare for the project. Here are some tips to prepare for the installation of hurricane screens that keep your home safe during storms:

1. Clean Landscaping to Allow Access to All Windows and Doors

Before you can start by installing hurricane screens, you want to make sure that all the windows and doors around your home can easily be accessed. Clean up clutter in the landscaping and trim any shrubs near your home that may get in the way. This is also a good time to measure the openings to know the size of hurricane screens that you will need in every opening of your home.

2. Do Maintenance to Openings Around Windows and Doors

Just like any other home improvement to windows and doors, you will want to inspect openings for damage. Make sure that you do repairs before hurricane screens are installed to ensure they are doing their job to protect your home during storms. In addition, it is often easier to do repairs to openings before the addition of hurricane screens.

3. Decide on the Type of Hurricane Screens, Fabrics, or Shutters for Your Home

When it comes to hurricane screens, there are many choices, which can be inexpensive fabrics that you install in an emergency or more durable permanent installations. If a storm is on its way, temporary hurricane fabrics may be the only choice to keep your home safe during the next storm. Permanent, professionally installed hurricane screens are much like hurricane shutters, and often both can be installed by the same company. If you are installing hurricane shutters, screens are a great solution for areas where shutters are not installed, such as for doors.

4. Contact a Hurricane Screen Installation Service to Get an Estimate and Begin Installing

The final step in preparing for hurricane screen installation will be getting estimates and scheduling to work to be done. Talk to the installation service about providing materials or if you need to order them from a supplier, and get another estimate to know what the project is going to cost.

These are some tips that will help you prepare your home for hurricane screens that protect your home during storms. If you are ready to protect your home from the next storm, contact a hurricane screen installation service to be prepared for whatever weather mother nature brings your way.
