How to Prevent Water Intrusion From A Leaking Sliding Glass Door

Posted by Jimmy Hawley on Feb 10, 2021 7:30:00 AM

Sliding glass doors are great ways to open up your home to the outside world on a nice day. They can let in plenty of fresh air while giving up very little floor space.

If you're getting ready to replace your home’s current entry doors with hurricane impact front doors, the function is important. But that's not the only thing you should consider. 

We can help you learn how to choose the best impact doors, so your home is well-protected and beautiful at the same time.

What Are Hurricane Impact Doors?

Hurricane impact doors are exactly what they sound like. They are doors specially designed to provide extra protection in the event of a hurricane by stopping the wind from forcing entry into your home. They are extremely strong, so a wind-borne object will not be able to break through the door and enter your house.

With all the debris that can become airborne during a hurricane, and the speed at which it can travel, having hurricane impact doors can keep your home much safer.
