When choosing a replacement hurricane entry or patio door, you have more than a few options and prices to choose from. First and foremost, it’s always important to have a budget in mind when going into a project like this as materials tend to vary. Hurricane impact doors can range from your standard $300-400 steel solid core models sold at Home Depot to the high-end semi and fully custom wood doors as much as $25,000. There are a number of quality reasonably priced options in between.
Materials To Choose From:
Material costs increase in the order listed above with wood doors being your most expensive and a steel door being the lowest. For the majority of South Florida homes, either a fiberglass or aluminum door would make the most sense, which offer the most value.
In most cases, the cost of the door does not include a lock, or even hinges. These are all custom options. Hurricane Management Group suggests a 3-point locking system for any entry door. This offers the highest level of security and strength.
Impact doors can come in nearly any color. There are exceptionally nice options for both fiberglass and aluminum doors that give your entry the wood appearance you may be looking for at a reduced cost.
Glass or No Glass:
This is a great question. USUALLY, the more glass in an entry door generally means higher costs. This is not true. There are some great cost effective options using either steel, fiberglass or aluminum.
Hurricane High Impact Windows
What is Impact Glass:
Impact glass is also called monolithic or laminated glass. What impact glass offers is increased strength and rigidity after breakage from impact compared to your standard window or even tempered or heat strengthened glass. This glass is comprised of two pieces of heat strengthened glass with a thin plastic inner layer mounted in a super strong frame much like your windshield is made in your car only much thicker and much stronger. Insulated impact glass is actually three pieces of glass in a single frame. It has the standard two pieces of glass filled with a plastic inner layer but it also has about a 1/4″-1/2″ void between it and a third piece of heat strengthened glass that is usually filled with Argon Gas.

Impact Glass Provides:
– Storm protection

– Climate control
– Energy efficiency
Following the devastation of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, South Florida officials adopted the first mandatory glazing impact standards in the United States. In order for skylights, windows or glass doors to be installed in these “Wind-Borne Debris Area” zones, they must meet the stringent impact test requirement provisions. Those in affected areas should consider code-compliant skylights for more than just safety. They can be a cost-effective choice for bringing better natural lighting and additional ventilation into buildings, particularly where building codes may limit the use of traditional windows. Impact skylights designed to meet the latest building code requirements in all areas are readily available.

Doral is a city located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. A mixed industrial and suburban neighborhood of Miami, it lies north-west of Miami International Airport. It takes its name from the famous golf and spa resort located within its municipal boundaries. The Doral Golf Resort & Spa was originally built by Doris and Alfred Kaskel, who coined “Doral” by combining their names. The City of Doral was incorporated along with Miami Gardens in 2003. According to 2010 U.S. Census, the city had a population of 45,704 making it one of the fastest growing cities in Miami-Dade County, with a growth rate of 123.6%. For a city of its size, Doral has a large number of shops, financial institutions and businesses, especially importers and exporters, primarily because of its proximity to the Miami International Airport. In 2008, Fortune Small Business and CNN Money ranked Doral as 51 on a list of 100 cities with the best mix of business advantages and lifestyle appeal.

Hurricane Andrew was, at the time of its occurrence in August 1992, the costliest hurricane in United States history. The first hurricane of the 1992 Atlantic hurricane season, Andrew originated from a tropical wave over the central Atlantic. After turning westward, Hurricane Andrew entered a stage of rapid intensification, strengthening into a Category 5 hurricane near the Bahamas on August 23. It briefly weakened to a Category 4 hurricane over the island nation, but regained Category 5 intensity on August 24 before making landfall on Elliott Key and later in Homestead. Several hours later, the hurricane emerged into the Gulf of Mexico at Category 4 strength as it curved toward the Gulf Coast of the United States. As a Category 3 hurricane, Andrew moved ashore near Morgan City, Louisiana. In the Bahamas, Hurricane Andrew brought high tides, hurricane force winds, and tornadoes, which caused considerable damage. At least 800 houses were destroyed and there was substantial damage to the transport, communications, water, sanitation, agriculture, and fishing sectors. Overall, Hurricane Andrew caused four deaths and $250 million (1992 USD) in damage in the Bahamas. Throughout the southern portions of Florida, Hurricane Andrew brought very high winds; a wind gust of 177 mph (282 km/h) was reported at a house in Perrine. High winds caused catastrophic damage in Florida, especially in Miami-Dade County. In Miami-Dade County alone, damage was estimated at $25 billion (1992 USD) and 40 fatalities. Additionally, rainfall in Florida was substantial, peaking at 13.98 in (355 mm) in western Miami-Dade County.
