Hurricane High Impact Doors
Types of Hurricane High Impact Doors

– Patio Doors
– Sliding Glass Doors
– Traffic Doors
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
– 24/7 security Noise reduction
– 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.

Lazy Lake FL
Lazy Lake is a village contained entirely within the borders of the city of Wilton Manors, in Broward County, Florida. The population was 24 at the 2010 census. The village of Lazy Lake is roughly 620,000 sq ft (58,000 m2).
From Article: January 16, 2012 by Susannah Bryan, Sun Sentinel
Lazy Lake – A tiny hamlet in the midst of a bustling metropolis, its very existence defies the imagination. Lazy Lake has no traffic light, no gas station, no website, no town hall, and only one road to call its own. The 35 residents who live in Broward County’s smallest town like it that way. “The more people don’t know about us, the better,” longtime resident and onetime mayor Joe Fodera said of the village, founded in 1953. The village last had an election in 2006, when newcomer Lyn McFarland broke with tradition and challenged Joe McCallion for mayor, breaking a political dry spell that lasted 22 years. “Once every 20 years, we’ll have an election,” Fodera quipped. Elections cost money, Fodera said. Better to just take turns being mayor, residents say. “Everybody gets a turn here and there, depending on how long they’ve lived here,” said McCallion. In 2006, McFarland beat McCallion 12 to 3 in an election that boasted a 59% turnout. The people who live in the 15 homes built around the village’s 3.5-acre namesake lake have no interest in joining Wilton Manors, their much-larger neighboring municipality. “Everyone is content just the way it is,” said Fodera, who relinquished the mayor’s title in 2010 for another: village clerk, the town’s only paid employee. As clerk, he makes $4,800 a year and helps oversee Lazy Lake’s $35,000 annual budget. “I want to maintain the village’s countrylike charm and keep it the way it is,” said Pringle, who moved to Lazy Lake in February 2010 after relocating to Fort Lauderdale from New York five years earlier. Lazy Lake FL residents pay low taxes – $495 per $100,000 of assessed value compared with $699 in Wilton Manors – and want to make sure it stays that way, Pringle said. Home values here range from $278,000 to $595,000, but average about $500,000, even with the depressed real estate market. Lazy Lake is bordered by Andrews Avenue on the west and Northeast First Avenue on the east, Northeast 21st Court on the south and Northeast 24th Street on the north. Lazy Lake made national news in 1995 when residents put their tiny town up for sale, listing it for $15 million. “It was a great deal,” Fodera said. “Where can you buy a town for $15 million in Florida?” No one, however, took the deal.
Hurricane Wilma was the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Wilma was the fourth Category 5 hurricane and second-most destructive hurricane of the record-breaking 2005 season. Formed in the Caribbean Sea near Jamaica on October 15. Wilma continued intensifying, and eventually became a hurricane on October 18. Shortly thereafter, extreme intensification occurred, and in only 24 hours, Wilma became a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made landfall in Cape Romano, Florida with winds of 120 mph (190 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made several landfalls, with the most destructive effects felt in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, Cuba, and the US state of Florida. At least 62 deaths were reported, and damage is estimated at $29.1 billion (2005 USD), $20.6 billion (2005 USD) of which occurred in the United States. As a result, Hurricane Wilma is ranked among the top five most costly hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic and the fifth costliest storm in United States history.
