Dream Doors Jacksonville Decorates with Hurricane Impact Glass
July 18, 2011
Love the look of decorative glass inserts but concerned about safety in a hurricane zone? Don’t give it a second thought. Dream Doors Jacksonville uses only the highest quality hurricane impact glass to give your home’s front entry way a beautiful, durable and safe makeover.
The 2011 Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30 and Florida certainly gets its fair share of the rough winds and heavy rains that come with any tropical storm or hurricane blowing by. Today’s Florida building codes require one of three systems when installing or replacing complete door units in homes located within the 120-MPH wind zone (roughly east of US 1 and/or A1A). One option is installing state-approved hurricane shutters. However, these can be unsightly and costly. Another option is providing pre-cut plywood that can be screwed over the door opening – an impractical solution because the plywood must be stored until needed, takes up space in the homeowners’ storage areas and often are forgotten or misplaced by the time hurricane season comes around.
The third option is installing hurricane impact glass – a solution that’s effective, economical and beautiful. Dream Doors of Jacksonville is a licensed Certified Building Contractor (CBC1255285) and our products are Florida approval rated to satisfy the most recent changes to the State of Florida Building Codes for hurricane compliance. Plus, we ensure your door makeover is properly permitted as required for any new door installation or renovation.
