22 Mar What to do before hurricane season arrives (in addition to calling Master Builders about impact windows and doors!)
The more prepared you are for a hurricane, the better. Waiting until you find your home in the middle of the storm’s forecast cone certainly isn’t the time to think about installing hurricane doors on your Boca Raton garage or impact windows in a Deerfield Beach condo. And calling Master Builder Windows for a free quote on impact windows and doors isn’t the only thing you should be thinking about now – before hurricane season arrives.
Steps to take before hurricane season arrives in South Florida

Here are some other things you should be thinking about doing to prepare for hurricane season:
- Trim your trees before May 30th! When a storm is drawing close, trash pick up is often canceled and any yard debris you have could become flying missiles that could damage your property – or your neighbor’s. And they may not have installed hurricane impact windows or doors. Pay special attention to any branches that could hit your home – especially if you haven’t installed impact windows in your Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Coral Springs or Deerfield Beach home.
- Thin out vegetation to lessen wind resistance. Thinning the branches of trees allows the wind to blow through the tree. Dense branches or vines provide more resistance and are more likely to suffer damage or blow over.
- Clear your yard and property of bulky waste items. That includes the old patio furniture you were meaning to repair or that old grill you’ve been meaning to do something about. When a storm is approaching, bulk pick up may be canceled.
- Make a plan. Experts agree having a hurricane plan is the best way to ensure you will be prepared and reduce the stress involved in the event of a storm.
