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.

Southwest Ranches FL
Southwest Ranches is located in Broward County, Florida. It is located on the eastern edge of the Florida Everglades, 15 miles (24 km) southwest of Fort Lauderdale FL. It was incorporated in the year 2000 to avoid annexation by the city of Pembroke Pines and to preserve its semi-rural lifestyle. Because the area has many horse ranches and is located in the southwestern part of Broward County, residents chose “Southwest Ranches” over many other potential town names. The population as of the 2010 census was 7,345. The town includes the 2000 U.S. Census census-designated places of Country Estates, Green Meadow, Ivanhoe Estates, Rolling Oaks, and Sunshine Ranches. Other areas recently added to the town include Landmark Ranch Estates and Sterling Ranch Estates. To support its rural-equestrian lifestyle, the town has designated and developed dozens of miles of greenways (multi-use trails). The area is primarily residential, with most lots of 1 acre (0.40 ha) or more. There are some small farms and equestrian ranches. The town has laws that keep homes from being built on lots of less than 1 acre. They also generally stop streetlights and sidewalks from being built, in order to conserve and keep the town rural. The town’s unofficial motto is “The pavement stops here!” In the fall of 1996 Pembroke Pines FL introduced a proposed bill to the Broward County Legislative Delegation to annex into that city all the unincorporated area between Griffin Road to the north, Sheridan Street to the South, Flamingo Road to the east and SR 25 to the west. Hundreds of citizens from that unincorporated area, known as the Southwest Ranches, packed the Delegation hearing in November of 1996 held at Pembroke Pines City Hall to protest this attempted takeover and to call for the right to form their own city. As a result of this grassroots effort, the State Legislature passed a bill in the 1997 session calling for a vote of the citizens of Southwest Ranches in March of 2000. At that time, voters would have three choices. They could vote to annex into either Pembroke Pines or Davie or vote to become a new city. Southwest Ranches Homeowners Association was an umbrella group composed of individual homeowners associations in the Southwest Ranches area. Anyone belonging to an individual homeowners association was also automatically a member of Southwest Ranches Homeowners Association, with full voting rights. In the summer of 1997, SWRHA members agreed to actively promote incorporation of a new city for the area and formed Southwest Ranches Homeowners Association Political Committee to explore this option. A feasibility committee was appointed to determine if a new city would be viable. They would have to know if revenues would be adequate to cover the costs of running a city. Dr. Milan Dluhy of Florida International University was contacted and asked to complete a formal feasibility study. Dr. Dluhy had produced many such studies for groups which subsequently became successful cities. The feasibility committee also contacted Moyer and Associates, the company which provides contract services to Weston. On March 14, 2000, residents voted overwhelmingly to form a new Town rather than be annexed. Weston FL is to the north. Davie FL is to the east. Pembroke Pines FL is to the south.
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.
