The Atlantic hurricane season kicked off this week. What’s the big question everyone needs to be asking this year? Is your home ready for hurricane season? This year, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is a 70% chance of 6-11 named storms, with 3-6 of those becoming hurricanes. NOAA also believes there will be two major (Category 2 or greater) hurricanes this season.
Getting your home ready for hurricane season

We offer top-of-the-line hurricane impact windows that are engineered to withstand extreme wind conditions.
