The Destructive Path of Hurricanes
It’s fairly known that hurricanes are one of the most powerful storms. Some people may have experienced the horrible damage themselves. Some places are still being repaired from hurricane damages that happened years ago.
Just watching videos and photos of the aftermath is truly devastating. You can see all the homes and buildings torn apart. You can also see the roads full of so much water that it looks like a yacht can easily drive by.
Hurricanes can really damage anything in its path with all of its powerful destructive ways, even your own home.
One common means of destruction from hurricanes are its strong winds. Their potency can be anywhere from 74 miles per hour to 250 miles per hour. Even the lower level of wind strengths can be damaging. They can break the phone lines, electrical power, fresh water supplies, and gas. It’s not just about how strong they can be, but also on how protected and structured the home or building is. If your home is not secured and sturdy to withstand certain hurricane categories, the damaging can be grave. Winds can uplift roofs. They can cause a claustrophobic affect.
Water surge, also referred to as storm surged, is caused by an immense wave of water from a hurricane that sweeps onto the land. The water from the ocean is pushed towards the land because of the strong winds of the hurricane. The surge can be about 50 miles wide. This can be damaging to people and their homes, especially the ones living on the coast. In fact, around 90 percent of hurricane deaths are due to storm surge.
The water can demolish houses, roads, docks, and even erode beaches. Even though the flooding doesn’t usually last for long, the damaging is so severe that it can take years to repair.
We are not talking about some leaves or small dirt flying. We are talking about trees, boats, cars, heavy branches and just about anything else that can be lifted from strong claustrophobic winds. Such debris is damaging and life-threatening. During a hurricane, flying objects can knock out parts of homes and buildings. A tree trunk can fly right into your home’s window and shatter it completely if it’s not hurricane proof. This can cause an opening and the hurricane claustrophobic winds can easily come in!
Possible Theft After
As if such hurricane damage is not already enough, it can easily attract intruders. Deadly debris and water flooding should not be your only concern. If your home is damaged from the storm, it’s fairly easy for an intruder to come in. Let’s talk about the instance of a tree trunk damaging your window; now the intruder can easily go into your home through there. Hurricane winds can damage roofs and leave a perfectly open area. It’s pretty rare to be able to get someone to come out and repair the damage within a day, especially right after a hurricane hit. Many places that provide such services can be closed for days! If the hurricane was powerful enough, it could be weeks or even months before they open again.
Hurricanes are not one’s best friend. They are destructive and can cause damages that may last for months! That’s why it’s vital for one to be prepared and protect their home. Get one step closer to getting that job done by looking into getting hurricane shutters. They can protect your home from both hurricanes and intruders!

Prevent the Crime: Crimsafe Security Screens
Did you know that a burglary generally happens every 25.7 seconds?
That basically means more than one burglary could happen by then time you finish this article.
I am sure that you now realize how important it is to protect you and your family as soon as possible by guarding your home.
Coastal Shutters can get that right protection job done with Crimsafe’s hurricane and security screens.
These security screens can be placed on doors, windows, patios, outdoor kitchens and just about anywhere else. No matter what size or shape the opening area is, all the screens are custom made so that they can fit. They are extremely durable and strong in order to prevent any intruders from coming in.
Literally, they can be made to fit practically ANYWHERE.
Security Screen Doors
CrimeSafe offers various types of screen doors to best protect your home. There are hinged doors, French doors, bi-fold doors, stacking doors, and single or double sliding doors. All of which have the same support for protection. One truly has a wide range of styles to select from and decide which best suits their home design. These doors provide various benefits. Aside from the protection of burglaries, they also act as a barrier against any wind-blown debris and/or hailstones from storms. They allow an airflow and through-breezes which can keep your home cooler in the summer. The doors are made with CrimeSafe’s Tensile-Tuff stainless steel mesh which blocks up to 53% of solar heat gain and 62% of UV rays. This can cut down some of those air conditioning bills. Also, the doors keep insects from coming in the home. Oh, and they can protect houses from hurricanes with the specially designed Hurricane Protection Screen.
Window Security Screens
The window security screens also come in various styles. One can choose either fixed windows, hinged windows, or Safe-S-Cape (keyless emergency exit system) windows. All such windows are very strong and durable in order to best protect your home from burglaries. They even look exactly like regular window screens so it’s fairly easy for the intruder to differentiate them from a regular unguarded window. The benefits of having window security screens are fairly similar to the door’s benefits such as the protection against wind-blown debris and hailstones. They too provide airflow and ventilation for the home to stay cooler throughout the summer and can protect houses from hurricanes.
Patio & Outdoors
Yes, the security screens can even protect patios, balconies, pools, courtyards, and rooftop entertaining areas. The screens enclosures have the ability to attach from a floor to a ceiling. If there is no roof to attach to, the screens can bend or curve to form one to provide an enclosed space. That will allow all doors and windows that are overlooking such area to be protected. The screens for the outside are also very strong and help prevent intruders. On top of this, they are made with the same mesh material as the other screens which reduces solar heat and filter UV to allow areas to stay cool. Don’t worry about your view. The screens consist of clear visibility, so you literally feel as though you are in an open space.
As you can see, Coastal Shutters can attach CrimeSafe screens on just about anything to protect your home. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a house or an apartment. It doesn’t matter if your outdoor area doesn’t have a ceiling. Anything can literally be done for the security screens to adjust to your needs! No matter what size or style, they all are equally durable and strong. If you want an added amount of protection strength, look into CrimeSafe’s Ultimate range which is the newly renovated product line that offers 40% stronger protection than the regular product lines.
On top of the great benefits, all the security screens look just like regular doors or windows. They add a touch to the home that offers great protection and keeps you and your family safe.
