Getting Help With Glass

I have always had problems renovating my home, which is one of the reasons I started focusing so seriously on finding contractors. I began going through and looking for incredible places who could help with everything from replacing my carpet to taking care of finding new glass, and a few months ago, I was able to find a contractor that I felt really great about working with. They went through my home and replaced all of the auto glass, and I was really impressed with how great of a job they did for me. This blog is all about getting help with glass.

Are You Prepared For Storm Season Maintenance?

by Lynn Webb

Smashed windshields, ripped vinyl siding, crushed brick, and dented metal are just a few problems that people in hurricane and tornado-prone areas have to deal with every year. Maintenance and replacement plans are just as important as prevention, so don't push all of your efforts into preventing 100% of nature's possibilities. Balance your efforts and remain flexible in your recovery with a few prevention, repair, and replacement planning points.

Boarding Up And Locking Down

Before a storm, it's important to get as many protections over your most fragile belongings--including people--before the storm hits. There are a few techniques that can protect buildings and connected infrastructure, but they don't all work in the same circumstances.

The most basic technique is to nail boards over glass and doorways. This adds resistance in front of the selected surfaces and can stop the smaller projectiles such as rocks, branches, baseballs, and small metal scrap from cracking windows. Heavier damage comes from flying timber and heavier metal components--such as materials from an exposed construction site--in the bigger storms.

Better protection comes from reinforced shutters and covers for windows and doors. Storm shutter technology exists for doors and can be installed with anchor points that are both strong and discreet, allowing efficient installation and removal by professionals who can provide the best chances of shutter protection.

Replacement Plans After The Damage

There is no such thing as a 100% defense, and it's a terrible idea to put your hopes in your defense plan stopping everything. It's great to go for the best and support development, but no part of cheer-leading development requires ignoring a backup plan.

Make sure to have a team of glass door repair, window repair, and general home repair professionals in your phone contacts. Get physical cards for your wallet and security box/safe for after the storm as well.

Do your research before the storm hits. You need to learn who to trust and what their rates are before the panic and desperation of needing repairs grips your entire area, as there may be some people taking advantage of the emergency to provide quick, expensive work or even commit fraud.

Once you find a team that you can trust, ask them for advice on prevention. All of the shutter and protection products mentioned in the previous section can either be provided by repair professionals, special ordered for you, or ordered from a business partner.
