The Beauty Behind Hurricane Protection

Published on June 8, 2020

With hurricane season knocking on our door here in Southwest Florida, this is the time of year when we start preparing to protect our homes and our loved ones should a storm threaten our shores.  When it comes to hurricane protection for new homes, we’ve come a long way.  Below are a few favorite Aubuchon Homes’ designs that provide protection while enhancing curb appeal.

Stunning Exterior Doors
A series of French doors add charm and a touch of elegance to the Carleton model’s front entry. But beyond their beauty, these Jeld-Wen impact-rated doors are also weather resistant.  From the inside, you can admire the beauty of wood, while an aluminum shell on the outside protects the doors from the elements.

Versatile Patio Doors
You’re no longer limited to sliding glass doors to expand your living space.  Patio doors can now fold, stack, and even pivot.  These homeowners chose an impact-rated folding door system by Euro-Wall for their Fort Myers dream home.  They provide uninterrupted views and neatly fold open while still standing up to Florida’s strict building codes.

Architectural Garage Doors
The marriage of design and function doesn’t stop at the front door.  Reinforced garage doors with impact glass can protect your home while complementing your design style.  These contemporary Clopay doors from their modern steel collection are durable and aesthetically desirable.
