Why are storm panels a good choice for homeowners?

Everyone should live by the phrase “work smarter, not harder”. There are many options when it comes to protecting your windows and home from hurricane force winds, such as placing tape on the glass to prevent it from shattering, nailing plywood to your home, or even placing furniture against the windows. Those strategies may provide minor protection to you home, but they are not a fool-proof plan and are often just a waste of time and effort.

Hurricane force winds can blow up to 100mph or more! Tape or even cheap plywood would stand no chance against debris being hurled at your glass windows at over 100mph. Nailing plywood to your walls is labor-intensive, damages your home and is a big eyesore to your family and neighbors.  Replacing plywood every year can cost a pretty penny. Trying to save the wood can be storage challenge and will run the risk of growing mold which will weaken the wood’s structural integrity. And then there are the bugs. Termites love wood!
